Why should we think twice about full body-scan “security measures”? The government has only our best interest at heart …
… doesn’t it?
People, don’t be fooled. Don’t succumb to Stockholm Syndrome.
The ‘Underwear Bomber’ event has all the earmarks of “a scripted and orchestrated event to cultivate and utilize Muslim patsies as the dominant theme in a complex op, as complex as media, government, and the military can make it, to keep the Mid-East hostilities going and America worrying as it sinks in ever deepening debt,” to borrow a quote from an article about the false-flag “Fort Hood” massacre staged by the C.I.A. as cover to confiscate a certain booty of gold and money that had been stashed there.
1) The FBI has changed its story more times than I can count on one hand. Among the earliest, a witness asserted that, after disembarking in Detroit, an Indian man was handcuffed and led away after a bomb-sniffing dog had detected something in his luggage. The FBI then removed the other passengers from the area, strongly indicating that explosive materials had been found in the man’s bag. After initial denials, the FBI was forced to acknowledge that a second man was detained. Further reports only added to the mystery, however, as FBI officials indicated the man was apprehended because his papers weren’t in order, not bothering to explain how the sniff-dogs sniffed that problem out.
2) There was a fellow video-taping the Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, throughout the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
3) There was a lawyer who witnessed the exchange between the agent at Amsterdam’s airport check-in desk and a tall, sharply-dressed Indonesian or Indian man who intervened on the part of the Nigerian whom he claimed had no passport and whom he presented as a Sudanese refugee.
Then there are these reports:
November 23, 2009: Obama Quietly Backs Patriot Act Provisions
With the health care debate preoccupying the mainstream media, it has gone virtually unreported that the Barack Obama administration is quietly supporting renewal of provisions of the George W. Bush-era USA Patriot Act that civil libertarians say infringe on basic freedoms.
And it is reportedly doing so over the objections of some prominent Democrats.
When a panicky Congress passed the act 45 days after the terrorist attacks of Sep. 11, 2001, three contentious parts of the law were scheduled to expire at the end of next month, and opponents of these sections have been pushing Congress to substitute new provisions with substantially strengthened civil liberties protections.

January 3, 2010: Underwear Bomber False Flag to be Exploited to Renew Draconian Patriot Act
Prior to the underwear bomber incident on Christmas, the House of Representatives tabled legislation to “reform” the Constitution-nullifying Patriot Act. On December 16, nine days before the patsy Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was delivered to the airport in Amsterdam by his handler, Congress decided to shuffle the law off into the New Year. Many of the Patriot Act provisions were set to expire on January 1st. Three expiring provisions will remain in force at least through February. The extension came as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) balked at a Senate plan to include Patriot Act amendments into a $636 billion Pentagon funding measure, saying doing so would create “revolt on the left.”
In fact, the so-called “left” in Congress is as dedicated to implementing the government’s control grid as the “right.” The only difference is that Democrats engage in more hand-wringing over the legislation. So-called liberal Democrats have pushed for renewal of the police state law … Read more …
January 4, 2010: Are Airport Full Body Scanners A Health Menace?
Ionizing radiation in the X-ray spectrum damages and mutates both chromosomal DNA and structural proteins in human cells. If this damage is not repaired, it can lead to cancer. New research shows that even very low doses of X-ray can delay or prevent cellular repair of damaged DNA, raising questions about the safety of routine medical X-rays. Unborn babies can become grotesquely disfigured if their mothers are irradiated during pregnancy. Heavily X-rayed persons of childbearing age can sustain chromosomal damage, endangering offspring. Radiation damage is cumulative and each successive dose builds upon the cellular mutation caused by the last. It can take years for radiation damage to manifest pathology. Read more …
January 4, 2010: MI5 told US about Detroit bomber’s terror links ‘a year ago’
Britain told American intelligence agents more than a year ago that the Detroit bomber had links to extremists, according to Downing Street. The prime minister’s spokesman indicated that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was named in a file of people based in Britain who had made contact with radical Muslim preachers. The file was said to have been sent to the US authorities in 2008.
White House sources disputed the Downing Street account, stating that no such intelligence information was passed by Britain before the attempted Christmas Day attacks. The White House declined to respond officially. Read more …
January 4, 2010: Administration Knew of Tactic Used in Airliner Attack Since October
The Obama administration official, who declared there was “no smoking gun” that could have alerted authorities about an al-Qaida plot to bring down a U.S. airliner over Detroit, had received a personal, high-level briefing in October warning of a new al-Qaida tactic of hiding a bomb in an attacker’s underwear.
Despite Brennan’s contention that no smoking gun preceded the attack, Newsweek reported that Brennan received a personal briefing in October from Muhammad bin Nayef, the Saudi Prince who narrowly survived an al-Qaida assassination attempt in August. Nayef was wounded in the explosion, which used the same technique, and the same PETN explosive material, that authorities say Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab employed to try to bring down a Northwest airliner on Christmas Day.

December 30th, 2009: Did the Nigerian’s father sell him out to the C.I.A.?
[T]he Islamic Development Bank (IDB) is heavily invested in the neoliberal reforms of Yemen’s economy which are at this very moment, under serious risk of the ongoing revolution in that country.
Daddy Warbucks, whose banking ties are under threat of serious set-backs, goes to the State Department and then the CIA, and all of a sudden his lonely, college drop-out, populist son, ends up getting on a flight and setting his nuts on fire, and the good-old U.S.A. can now come running in to the rescue to save all those precious investments in Yemen that are directly tied to, you guessed it, the underwear bomber’s daddy.

January 4, 2010: Yemeni Detainees at Guantanamo caught in Underwear Bomb Backlash
In the wake of the failed attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas day, legal experts and human rights advocates are pushing back against calls from politicians to halt the planned release of prisoners from Guantanamo Bay to their home country, Yemen.
The incident triggered calls from several elected officials to abandon the closing of the prison at Guantánamo, which they claimed would be dangerous and premature. Some also suggested specifically that the release of Yemeni prisoners be halted.
But human rights advocates are urging President Barack Obama to reject the use of the incident to further delay closing the prison and releasing the detainees who have been cleared after review of their cases by a high-level administration task force. Read more …
January 5, 2010: The Yemen Hidden Agenda: Behind the Al-Qaeda Scenarios, A Strategic Oil Transit Chokepoint
For some months the world has seen a steady escalation of US military involvement in Yemen, a dismally poor land adjacent to Saudi Arabia on its north, the Red Sea on its west, the Gulf of Aden on its south, opening to the Arabian Sea, overlooking another desolate land that has been in the headlines of late, Somalia. The evidence suggests that the Pentagon and US intelligence are moving to militarize a strategic chokepoint for the world’s oil flows, Bab el-Mandab, and using the Somalia piracy incident, together with claims of a new Al Qaeda threat arising from Yemen, to militarize one of the world’s most important oil transport routes. In addition, undeveloped petroleum reserves in the territory between Yemen and Saudi Arabia are reportedly among the world’s largest. Read more …
January 5, 2010: Unconstitutional Digital Strip Searches Coming to an Airport Near You
We The People have the right to say no to any unlawful searches and seizures without probable cause and the proper warrants to conduct them. If we submit to these unlawful, warrantless, humiliating digital strip searches just to be able to board a plane, cruise ship, train, bus, or to enter a mall for that matter, then they will be able to implement any form of tyranny they so desire because we would be admitting to them that we are nothing but obedient slaves. Do not submit to tyranny, know, understand and stand up for your rights as a sovereign human being. Read more …
January 2, 2010: The Degrading Effects of Terrorism Fears
Even though they knew that doing so would help murderers and other dangerous and vile criminals evade capture, the Framers banned the Government from searching homes without probable cause, prohibited compelled self-incrimination, double jeopardy and convictions based on hearsay, and outlawed cruel and unusual punishment. That’s because certain values — privacy, due process, limiting the potential for abuse of government power — were more important than mere survival and safety. A central calculation of the Constitution was that we insist upon privacy, liberty and restraints on government power even when doing so means we live with less safety and a heightened risk of danger and death. And, of course, the Revolutionary War against the then-greatest empire on earth was waged by people who risked their lives and their fortunes in pursuit of liberty, precisely because there are other values that outweigh mere survival and safety.
What matters most about this blinding fear of Terrorism is not the specific policies that are implemented as a result. Policies can always be changed. What matters most is the radical transformation of the national character of the United States. Reducing the citizenry to a frightened puddle of passivity, hysteria and a child-like expectation of Absolute Safety is irrevocable and far more consequential than any specific new laws. Fear is always the enabling force of authoritarianism: the desire to vest unlimited power in political authority in exchange for promises of protection. Read more …
The Neocons, the military/industrial complex, the globalist forces and elitist international bankers are all continuing the long-nurtured agenda: Strike fear into the American people to prepare them to accept the dilution and degradation of their civil liberties as enumerated in the U.S. Constitution in exchange for the security that these criminal social engineers will maintain can only be provided by a full-on Police State, this in advance of ushering America into a MARXIST Totalitarian World Government.
So what’s it gonna be, people?
Security at the expense of Liberty? … or Freedom which is never free?

Petitions, boycotts and lawsuits needed to halt latest manifestation of prison planet being constructed around humanity
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, January 5, 2010
Radio talk show host Alex Jones is calling for petitions, boycotts and lawsuits en mass in an effort to block the nationwide implementation of full body scanners that represent a total violation of privacy, a health risk, and the next wave of tyranny being metered out against the American people and the people of the world under the phony pretext of fighting terrorism.
“Our long journey into domestication and dependency on the scientific dictatorship is accelerating, our entire society is being turned into a massive surveillance grid, it has been designed to persecute the people,” Jones warned on his show yesterday, adding that the scanners were the latest manifestation of the prison planet being constructed around humanity.
Allied with the contrived global warming movement, terrorism is the other prong of the pincer being used to crush freedom and advance totalitarianism in the developed world as Homeland Security follows the plan it was created to carry out – the gradual implementation of martial law in America characterized by the kind of stifling security we now see in airports being introduced into our daily lives in shopping malls, public schools, and many other buildings.
Jones warned that those who refuse the body scan and opt for a pat down will be subject to a strip search and treated like terrorists.
“We’re being trained like dogs….you’re the people they want to train to accept this, you’re the milk cows, you’re the cattle, you’re the once proud free people being trained to accept this,” said Jones, adding that the funding was already in place for body scanners at all U.S. airports in early 2009 before the Christmas Day incident magically arrived to provide the perfect pretext to push ahead with full implementation.
“Magically that happens and they begin beating the drum within hours of it, see we must have the body scanners, it was all set, it was all rigged, every TV network, every station had their talking points,” said Jones, adding that body scanners were instantly promoted as the solution, allied with calls to renew the rapidly expiring Patriot Act.
The fact that the aborted plane bombing attack also provided the perfect justification to expand U.S. military operations into the Arabian Peninsula in the name of fighting Al-Qaeda, a process already well underway before the bombing attempt, makes the suspicious circumstances surrounding the December 25 incident all the more alarming.
As we have documented, The FBI has repeatedly changed its story in a haphazard effort to accommodate eyewitness testimony from passengers that conflicts with the official version of events.
At first the FBI denied that a second man was arrested in connection with the incident but later admitted a second man was handcuffed after Flight 253 passenger and eyewitness Kurt Haskell said he saw an Indian man being led away by authorities after sniffer dogs had found something in his luggage.
Officials then claimed that the man had not been on Flight 253 at all and was not connected with the incident, but had to reverse their statement again just days later when other eyewitnesses emerged, admitting that the man had been on the plane.
The fact that the FBI is apparently protecting accomplices involved with the bombing attempt, and thereby keeping the official story within the script necessary to pin the attack on a lone man from Yemen who was inspired by Al-Qaeda, blatantly suggests that the facts are being manipulated to fit a pre-conceived geopolitical agenda.
Jones stated that if the body scanners were allowed to be implemented, it would not be long before travelers were forced to wear taser bracelets before they even enter an airport that allow officials to deliver an electric shock to anyone they deem suspicious on a whim. Homeland Security has already been busy exploring the possible roll out of such devices.
“A senior government official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has expressed great interest in a so-called safety bracelet that would serve as a stun device, similar to that of a police Taser®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers,” reported the Washington Times.
In the UK, the level of detail produced by the body scanners is such that their implementation would break child pornography laws, specifically the Protection of Children Act 1978, under which it is illegal to create an indecent image or a “pseudo-image” of a child.
“They do not have the legal power to use full body scanners in this way,” said Terri Dowty, of Action for Rights of Children, adding there was an exemption in the 1978 law to cover the “prevention and detection of crime” but the purpose had to be more specific than the “trawling exercise” now being considered,” reports the Guardian.
Those vigorously pushing for the widespread rollout of body scanners in the aftermath of the highly suspicious Christmas Day bombing attempt have been found to have their own financial motives.
“Since the attempted bombing of a US airliner on Christmas Day, former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff has given dozens of media interviews touting the need for the federal government to buy more full-body scanners for airports,” reports the Boston Globe.
“What he has made little mention of is that the Chertoff Group, his security consulting agency, includes a client that manufactures the machines. Chertoff disclosed the relationship on a CNN program Wednesday, in response to a question.”
Approaching the issue from a health angle, despite official assurances that the scanners are safe, there are many concerns about the physical impact of firing radiation at the body, especially if the individual has had previous x-ray scans, mammograms, or is a frequent flyer.
Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology at University of California, Berkeley, maintains that there is no safe dose of ionizing radiation. Gofman argues that radiation from medical diagnostics and treatment is responsible for 50 per cent of cancers of 60 per cent of heart disease cases amongst Americans.
“The fact, that X-ray doses are so seldom measured, reflects the false assumption that doses do not matter…[but] they do matter enormously. And each bit of additional dose matters, because any X-ray photon may be the one which sets in motion the high-speed, high energy electron which causes a carcinogenic or atherogenic [smooth muscle] mutation. Such mutations rarely disappear. The higher their accumulated number in a population, the higher will be the population’s mortality rates from radiation-induced cancer and ischemic heart disease,” states Gofman.
In addition to all these issues, full body scanners would not even have stopped the Christmas Day bomber from boarding Flight 253, according to a British MP who helped design the machines.
“I must advise the Prime Minister – and the British public – that the scanners are not a “silver bullet,” said Ben Wallace, who worked on the scanners at defense research organization QinetiQ. “You would be mistaken to think that they would counter the new threat.”
“The millimetre wave technology is harmless, quick and can be deployed overtly or covertly. But it cannot detect chemicals or light plastics.”
Watch the video below in which Alex Jones outlines how the body scanners represent the latest salvo in pursuit of the totalitarian takeover of our society.

The establishment is ensuring that pedophiles and perverts are kept entertained at airport security checkpoints by mandating the mass rollout of naked body scanners that provide detailed images of your child’s genitalia, to be enjoyed by officials sitting alone in back rooms …
The rampant delirium over the proposed implementation of full-body security scanners in airports reached new heights today as a former EU minister suggested that all passengers need to have their insides scanned to make sure they are not concealing bombs.
The rabid calls for co-ordinated implementation of naked body scanners in airports across the planet, in the wake of the failed underwear bombing, will result in huge profits for the military industrial complex.
President Barack Obama today will announce changes to the government’s terrorist watch-list system as well as additional steps to improve airline safety, an administration official said.
On Monday evening’s edition of MSNBC’s Countdown with host Keith Olbermann, guest Richard Wolffe discusses the nation’s intelligence gathering associated with the Flight 253 ‘underpants bomber,’ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and serious questions that have risen about whether or not there was foul play, information intentionally withheld, or a conspiracy involved.
