How to Beat a TSA Body Scanner [and Flush a Billion Dollars Down the Toilet] (*Video*)


What is the purpose of the TSA?
Our government has spent billions on homeland security and stripped Americans of their natural rights to be secure in their homes and their persons all in the name of safety and maintaining the perception of control.

In a demonstration that has no doubt led to a public relations nightmare for DHS and is sure to lead to calls of aiding and abetting terrorists, engineer Jon Corbett of TSA Out of Our Pants takes aim directly at TSA backscatter body scanners that are supposed to be the last line of defense for maintaining the safety and security of our public transportation systems.

To date the government has spent some $1 billion dollars to implement this technology across the United States – all of it now rendered useless by an extremist alternative news blog.
Via Info Wars:
The video shows Corbett carrying a metal case through the scanner, away from his body in his side pocket. Corbett explains that because metallic objects appear as black on the image the scanners produce, the machines do not pick up such objects if they are obscured by the background, which is also black.
“The scanners are now effectively worthless, as anyone can beat them with virtually no effort.” Corbett writes on his blog. “The TSA has been provided this video in advance of it being made public to give them an opportunity to turn off the scanners and revert to the metal detectors. I personally believe they now have no choice but to turn them off.” he adds.
Within hours of the video being uploaded, blogs and news sites, including Yahoo News and the Mail Online had begun to pick up an the video, saying it was sure to go viral.
Now, despite the fact that the video contains no nudity, violence, abuse or other explicit content, YouTube has placed it behind an age restriction wall, meaning anyone who wants to view it on YouTube has to login or sign up for an account and verify their age.
