Full body imaging scanners are not new, they have been installed and have been operating in airports across the country for some time. In April, 2008 I wrote here that XXX Airport Body Scanners were in use at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and were currently being tested in Los Angeles and NY JFK Airport. On the 18 February I wrote here that TSA XXX full body scanners have been installed in Tulsa.
The federal government “claims” that the images can not be stored, printed or transmitted and no one other than TSA personnel will view them—Riiight
Would these high tech gadgets have prevented the Al-Qaeda Terrorist Thug from boarding Northwest Airlines #253 and attempting to blow himself up on Christmas Day?
Dutch Police are investigating why Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab was even permitted to board the Detroit bound flight. Kurt and Lori Haskell Attorneys from Newport, MI and passengers aboard Northwest Airlines #253 witnessed the Islamic Terrorist Thug attempting to board the airplane in Amsterdam without a passport.
Since taking office Barack Obama has failed to take the War on Islamic Terrorism seriously but instead his Administration has claimed that Terrorism or Terrorist Threats were the old “politics of fear” and began using the PC phrase “Man Caused Disaster” to describe Islamic Terrorist Thugs determined to kill Americans.
The amateurishness of DHS Chief Janet Napolitano was very evident on Sunday when she claimed “The system worked” and that there was no indication that the Islamic Terrorist Thug on Northwest Airlines #253 with 278 passengers and 11 crew members was part of any larger terrorist plot.
Before Christmas the Obama Administration knew that a branch of Al-Qaeda in Yeman were talking about a “Nigerian” being prepared for a terrorist attack.
On Monday I wrote here that Scotland Yard fears that there may be at least 25 more Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs ready to commit martyrdom on USA airliners.
The Obama Administration has been in pre 9/11 mode since taking office. We now know that Napolitano lied and that the United States had the intelligence which they should have pieced together, that would have prevented the Islamic Jihadist Thug, attempted terrorist attack on the Detroit bound flight but they failed to act.
The Obama Administration incompetence which described Christmas Day’s attempted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attack on Northwest Airline #253 as a near miss, shows that this Administration does not take the War on Islamic Terrorism seriously.
While Iran continues to support Islamic Jihadists financially and prosecute its proxy war against the United States killing Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, Barack Obama has chosen to ignore this and has conveyed messages to Iran of his willingness to negotiate with the Islamic Fascists without pre-conditions and has reiterated that Iran should have the right to access powerful nuclear power if they comply with its responsibilities under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.
Iran has broken their promises and have not complied with any UN sanctions up until now. Why does Barack Obama believe that he may be able to convince Iran to change their ways?
The Obama Administration since taking office has weakened the United States and in September was mocked by French President Sarkozy criticizing Barack Obama at the United Nations Security Council for not living in the real world and being naive. President Obama, continues to reiterate that we must all just learn to get along and rid the world of nuclear weapons. This policy once again demonstrates Obama’s gullibility, once one possess the knowledge of how to build nuclear weapons there is no way to ban them.
Barack Obama continues to endanger the lives of Americans at home and abroad—Islamic Jihadist Terrorist Thugs are not waiting for his Administration to get its act together. Al-Qaeda is well aware of the full body imaging scanners which are being praised as a responsible tool in the next line of defense to safeguard the flying public.
In June, the House of Representatives recognizing Privacy concerns voted 310-118 prohibiting the use of full body imaging scanners for primary screening.
Al-Qaeda is well aware of the XXX full body imaging scanners, Islamic Jihadists have their own and have tested smuggling explosives through European airports, practicing ways to conceal explosives.
GAO raises questions about the effectiveness of the XXX full body imaging scanners
Its time for the Obama Administration to get serious about prosecuting the War on Islamic Terrorism instead of attempting to quell the anxiety of the traveling public into yet another false sense of security.
