Body Scanners

Stolen from Prison Planet: Inverted Body Scanner Image Shows Naked Body In Full Living Color

Claim that devices did not show details of genitals exposed as a lie

The full body scanners that President Obama last night authorized to be rolled out in airports across the country at a cost of over $1 billion dollars not only produce detailed pictures of your genitals, but once inverted some of those images also display your naked body in full living color.

And you don’t need to be a graphics wizard using a $600 software suite like Photoshop to pull off the trick – inverting a photo is a simple process that takes one click and is an option available even in the most basic image editing software.

We were sent examples of the process by readers and then tested it for ourselves to confirm that simply inverting some of the pictures produced by the body scanners creates a near-perfect replica of a naked body in full color.

It is important to stress that this is a low resolution image. Airport screeners will have access to huge high definition images that, once inverted, will allow them to see every minute detail of your body.

The inversion trick doesn’t work for all the sample images produced by body scanners, but with or without its application, every image will still show details of your sexual organs. Even without being inverted, the images already break child porn laws in the UK.

Reassurances that airport screeners won’t be abe to save the images will provide little comfort to parents who know that the crystal clear image of their naked son or daughter being ogled by a TSA thug can merely be snapped with a handheld camera for their enjoyment later.

Apologists for the scanners have routinely described the images they produce as “ghostly” or “skeletal” in an effort to downplay the intrusion of privacy they really represent.

As we reported yesterday, claims that the body scanners did not provide details of genitals were disproven after a London Guardian journalist who was present at a trial for the machines earlier this week reported that the devices produce an image which make “genitals eerily visible.”

German Security advisor Hans-Detlef Dau, a representative for a company that sells the scanners, admits that the machines, “show intimate piercings, catheters and the form of breasts and penises”.

Indeed, as was admitted when the scanners were first being rolled out over a year ago, they don’t function properly if areas of the body are blurred out.

A report from October 2008, when the naked body scanners were first being introduced at Melbourne Airport in Australia, detailed how the X-ray backscatter devices don’t work properly unless the genitals of people going through them are visible.

“It will show the private parts of people, but what we’ve decided is that we’re not going to blur those out, because it severely limits the detection capabilities,” said Office of Transport Security manager Cheryl Johnson.

“It is possible to see genitals and breasts while they’re going through the machine,” she admitted.

TV news reports have been deliberately misleading viewers by blurring out faces and genitals of people in images produced by the scanners. When it comes to the real thing, your sexual organs and those of your children will be on full display to officials sat alone in back rooms, and with a simple inversion trick, your daughter’s naked body in full living high definition color will be there to be enjoyed by screeners.

NOTE: This is not an image of HS Sec. Janet Napolitano.


Personal Liberty Digest: Janet Napolitano Lied

Back in January, as we were covering the increasingly Orwellian security apparatus springing up in the wake of the Christmas Day false flag bombing attack on an airliner headed for Detroit, we documented how the Department of Homeland Security insisted their new naked body scanners weren’t capable of storing images of passengers. This despite the fact that the specifications for the machines clearly mentioned the need to store and transmit images.

At the time we were… skeptical. Actually, we said it stretched credulity.

Now we learn that the U.S. Marshals Service has admitted to surreptitiously saving tens of thousands of images recorded at a courthouse in Florida. In other words, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano lied when she said the machines couldn’t store images.

The images are easily manipulated to make full color photographs of passengers—and that includes pre-teenagers who are now subject to the scans in airports. To see what can be done with the images, (Caution: these images may not be suitable for viewing at work or on a monitored computer) click here.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center has filed a lawsuit asking a Federal judge to grant an immediate injunction to halt the use of the scanners. Hopefully the Federal judge will recognize the DHS effort to install these scanners in every major airport for just what it is: an assault on our 4th Amendment rights and a further effort to monitor and control our daily lives and turn us all into passive sheeple content to be herded about in the name of safety. ...


Personal Liberty Digest: False Flag Terror And TSA Totalitarianism

... Conveniently, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff’s new company just happened to be selling naked body scanners at the time, and the U.S. government snapped some of them up and began deploying them in U.S. airports. We were assured the dose of radiation received was harmless and that certainly they wouldn’t save the nude photographs that had TSA watchers all atwitter. We’ve since learned the radiation is harmful and the images can indeed be both saved and transmitted via the Internet.


The fascists in charge of “airport security” — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and TSA head John Pistole — are digging in despite the growing revolt by everyday Americans who value their health (they don’t want another dose of radiation) and their privacy (they don’t want photos of their naked bodies ogled by a bunch of TSA perverts in the airport or a bunch of panting juveniles on the Internet, and they don’t want to be touched in places reserved for lovers and doctors). Americans certainly don’t want their children subjected to such nonsense.

In a sign of government elitist hubris and arrogance, Napolitano this week went so far as to say that if Americans won’t submit to the TSA procedures they can find another way to travel. Now the fascists are deciding how you should travel.


Representative Ted Poe (R-Texas) said from the floor of the House that the scanners violate the 4th Amendment. ...


The Washington Times: EDITORIAL: Big Sister's police state

TSA's tyrannical tactics threaten American freedoms

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has crossed the line. As if subjecting millions of Americans to X-rated x-ray scans and public groping sessions weren't bad enough, the agency now threatens $11,000 in fines against anyone refusing to submit to humiliation at the airport.


Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano insists that anyone who has a problem with the state of affairs simply shouldn't fly. Unelected bureaucrats like Ms. Napolitano - known across the blogosphere as Big Sister - have no business making decisions that touch upon such a fundamental right as the ability of innocent citizens to travel freely. In Ms. Napolitano's view, Americans wishing to visit family and friends across the country exercise a privilege granted by the government. Air travel is no longer a free transaction between a member of the public and an airline. ...

Hey Janet, next time you fly to, let's say Hawaii, please drive!


rense: Celente Supports TSA "Groper" Procedure Proposes "Happy Ending" Policy Change

... The "Celente Solution": Just as the Government invariably gets everything else wrong, its grope-the-public strategy is upside-down and inside-out, contends [Gerald] Celente.


"As a strictly heterosexual, if I'm going to get groped in an airport be it in public or private I want to be groped by a gal. Period! And, ideally, I would like to choose my groper. Does the TSA have a 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' policy," he asks? "What twisted TSA/government bureaucrat put in place this guy-gropes-guy policy?

Or are they covertly fostering homosexuality by forcing men to be felt up by other men all under the guise of security?" ...

Well, I know Incompitano is allegedly gay...


Aol travel: What Happens if You Decline a Full Body Scan?

... When this tough blond makes up her mind she makes up her mind. There was no way she was going to be convinced to do a body scan if she didn't want to.


So instead, she opted for a pat down and was whisked away, barefoot, by two women - a TSA officer and her supervisor - to a private room, where McPhee says a very intrusive body search was conducted.


"They run their hands inside your leg and under your bra strap and patted the front of my breasts," she says. "If someone had done that to me at a nightclub I'd call the cops." ...


guardian UK: Get your hands off me, TSA!

These airport so-called security measures amount to state-sponsored sexual harassment

... It's not hyperbole to call the enhanced patdown a low-grade sexual assault; if you don't believe me, go find some woman's boobs or man's balls, start cupping and squeezing them according to new TSA standards, and count how many offences you're charged with. Last month, an agent openly admitted that the purpose of the aggressive new patdowns was to intimidate people into choosing the nude scanners instead.


And Homeland Security director Janet Napolitano justified this Hobson's choice – and abandoned all pretence of being a "servant" accountable to the public – in an insufferably arrogant column she wrote for USA Today, burying outright lies beneath eye-glazing bureaucratic prose. "The imaging technology that we use cannot store, export, print or transmit images," she claimed – though this was proven untrue almost as soon as the scanners were put in use; last August, US marshals admitted to storing 35,000 images collected from one single courthouse – some of which have now been obtained by the website Gizmodo under a freedom of information request.


"Rigorous privacy safeguards are also in place to protect the travelling public."


You can't claim privacy points when ordering people to let you either see them naked or feel them up.


"The vast majority of travellers say they prefer this technology to alternative screening measures."


No, the vast majority realise Napolitano's gone too far this time, and the backlash has finally begun. ...


USA Today: Napolitano: Scanners are safe, pat-downs discreet

I'm not posting her f***ing lies.


Sorry America, I didn't vote for her to be my Governor! I knew she would be a disaster in the Obama Administration.


They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
