ecurity Information Publicly Disseminated

Friday, July 8, 2011


Can we trust anything that the Obama Administration appointees are saying to the public. The president claimed that his administration will be open and transparent, Well he was right. The president never said anything about honesty. It may take us awhile but the exposure of travesties perpetrated on the American people is quiet apparent. Take for example the case of Janet Napolitano’s interview with USA Today that was Updated 11/14/2010 she said this.

“Nearly a year after a thwarted terrorist attack on a Detroit-bound airliner last Christmas Day, the recent attempt by terrorists to conceal and ship explosive devices aboard aircraft bound for the United States reminds us that al-Qaeda and those inspired by its ideology are determined to strike our global aviation system and are constantly adapting their tactics for doing so.”

This is not true! She is referring to the Toner cartridges IEDs that were shipped from Yemen via a UPS plain with a destination of synagogues in Chicago. The bombs were never meant to go off on the plain but to be delivered and then set off by a cell phone at the destination. And She said this
“Our best defense against such threats remains a risk-based, layered security approach that utilizes a range of measures, both seen and unseen, including law enforcement, advanced technology, intelligence, watch-list checks and international collaboration.”

This is misleading and untrue! If the system is “risk-based” then the naked body scanners would be at international terminals in Muslim countries. The problem with this is that it would never happen due to the extreme hang-up they have towards nudity.  Watch-List, are you kidding me. do you think that Iran, Yemen, Lebanon or Syria give a tinkers dam about a stinking watch list. However the Nigerian crotch bomber did go through a scanner and the PETN explosive that he was pack-in in his panties is not detectable by the naked body scanners. Then she said this.

“This layered approach to aviation security is only as strong as the partnerships upon which it is built. In addition to the more than 50,000 trained transportation security officers, transportation security inspectors, behavior detection officers and canine teams who are on the front lines guarding against threats to the system, we rely on law enforcement and intelligence agencies across the federal government. We require airlines and cargo carriers to carry out specific tasks such as the screening of cargo and passengers overseas. We work closely with local law enforcement officers in airports throughout the country.”

This statement is preposterous! There are 378 airports with reguarly scheduled commercial flights and out of those 150 are international airports. If we have 50,000 TSA officers and 378 airports that would be an average of 132.28 officers per airport. Lets just say that the small regional airports such as L.M. Clayton Airport in Wolf Point Montana That has 5 arrivals and 5 departures on the day I checked it out and most of those flights were corporate private jets. so maybe they have no TSA officers stationed there. Mcghee Tyson Airport in Knoxville Tennessee with 36 Commercial arrivals and 17 departures Friday July 8, 2011 with no activity between midnight and 5:00 AM. So maybe this Airport may have 2 shifts of 5 officers including a supervisor for a total of 10. So 10 officers X 228=2,280 Now subtract 2280 from 50,000=47200/150=318.13 officers per international airport. That’s a lot of personnel considering the amount of contact points that TSA is responsible for. Now think about what she says all the agencies public and private that provide security and screening. So what the hell does TSA do? They mill about at the boarding aria so they can molest you and your children or if your lucky they'll take nude photographs of the whole family. Next there was this revaluation.

(Advanced Imaging Technology) "AIT machines are safe, efficient, and protect Passenger privacy. They have been independently evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, who have all affirmed their safety. And the weapons and other dangerous and prohibited items we've found during AIT screenings have illustrated their security value time and again."

No corroboration of evidence. testing evidence from the companies listed could not be found and in some cases was deleted from there web sites, In the case of Johns Hopkins they refute the claims that DHS is using and that the data has been manipulated. Then there was this.

"Rigorous privacy safeguards are also in place to protect the traveling public. All images generated by imaging technology are viewed in a walled-off location not visible to the public. The officer assisting the passenger never sees the image, and the officer viewing the image never interacts with the passenger. The imaging technology that we use cannot store, export, print or transmit images."

This is not a truthful statement. The manufacture of the naked body scanners explains in there operation manual that the storage and transmitting of images for use in a data base is a standard feature. Then there was this whopper

"If an anomaly is detected during screening with AIT, if an alarm occurs after a passenger goes through a walk-through metal detector, or if a passenger opts out of either of these screening methods, we use pat-downs to help detect hidden and dangerous items like the one we saw in the failed terrorist attack last Christmas Day."

How many screening locations have you gone through at the airport, at least 2
