Israeli Security Expert to Canada: 'Full Body Scanners Useless'

Israeli expert on airport security just gave teleconferencing testimony to the Canadian parliament's Transport Committee. His expert advice is that Canada should not get naked body scanners, calling them useless and a waste of money.

A lot can be said about Israel (which is another topic), but when it comes to airport security, I think the Israeli record speaks for itself. They have never, ever had a problem with the screening they have developed. I think this former chief of security knows what he's talking about.

Meanwhile, the Obama admin just boosted Homeland Security's budget

The DHS plans to add an additional 275 naked body scanners to the 500 already installed and operated by the TSA at 78 airports nationwide.

The administration has proposed deploying 1,275 body scanners in airports by the end of 2012.

This article shows how the machines are essentially useless in stopping terrorism, and would not have stopped the under-wear bomber (who was purposefully allowed on the plane by insistence of USGov intelligence agents):

Honestly, does anybody (other than the TSA) think those things are any good? I mean, they're doing a really good job of keeping ME off airplanes, but I'm not a bomb.

I like how Obama's proposed budget will eventually reduce the deficit somehow, magically, but it will put us another trillion in the hole next year.

Don't you know anything Heli?!

The only way you can save any money is to spend it.

It hasn't panned out for me so far... but I'm sure it will work eventually.

TSA Employees caught stealing money from luggage

Two separate cases explained, followed by an ever-growing summary of related TSA craziness.

When the TSA eventually takes over rail and bus stations, as proposed, that's when the nation-wide revolt will probably happen. The Republicans would be wise to scale it all way back in order to score popular points. Unfortunately, they mostly seem to be for it all.

Dear Congress,

When you're looking to trim the budget, I know of a department that could stand less funding...

Must watch

Here is what's coming if you want to ride America's trains. That's right, the train networks.

I actually like Charlie Sheen. I'm not a hypocrite myself, like how the media goes bananas over him. I love screwing chicks. If I had money, I'd love to get some talented hookers and camp them out for a while. I used to party hard and behave badly while drunk. Now I don't. I've met up with 1 or 2 psycho vindictive chicks who exaggerated stuff I supposedly did in order to smear me. I ended up calling them manipulators and proved they're victimhood was BS. So, in other words, I've been Charlie a little bit from time to time, as other non-whipped men have too.

But of course none of that means nothing when I talk about politics. I think the same way about Sheen, who has some balls when it comes to politics. In fact, I'd like to hang out with Sheen because he seems like a smart, very funny, heads up guy. Of course, I'd rather not be around him when he's too pissed or stoned. Then again, none of my biz. I can't judge anyone's personal life.

Anyway, you guys can comment on how the TSA plans to take over rail, roads, and buses if ya want. :mrgreen:
