yeah, whatever. look for body cavity searches next.
in essence i agree with you (about being systematically degraded and watching civil liberties disappear), but i would like to point out that even though a few more tsa agents could be getting their rocks off thanks to being free to search more cavities, that alone wont help chertoff or the other scanner makers/sellers achieve more sales. thats why the specific angle of this recent "threat" - that of a surgically implanted device - is so integral to (what i suspect is) the intended objective (of this false flag mini-op). thanks directly to "incidents" like this one, for future airline "security" needs to be fully met, even cavity searches will be deemed insufficient. its hardly ironic that the feds had the "premonition" or intel that forewarned of surgically implanted explosives(?) or whatever...
of course, executing such a false flag op whereby someone was actually implanted with something would be way too risky and require way too much loot and leave too much of an evidence trail (at the very least a doctor would also have to be involved). so why bother with all that? just have a lady hand forth a note claiming as much, and you have nearly the same justification for selling more scanners.
Most passengers aboard a Paris-to-North Carolina flight that diverted to Maine said they didn't know what was going on until the plane was on the ground.
Passengers said they were informed that the Boeing 767 was landing in Maine to refuel before police took a passenger into custody. Dr. William Milam from Richmond, Va., said fellow passengers were stunned but that there was no drama.
funny how she still has no name (i checked right before posting this) and how she must have (obviously) gone on the rest of the flight without elliciting any attention whatsoever! and that the pilots were so sure that she wouldnt be a problem that they would lie to the rest of the passengers about why they diverted the plane. who knows, there may even be a lawsuit from one of the lied-to passengers, so maybe a chance at some slow (down the pike) money might even be had here... probably not, but its clear imo they are manufacturing/forcing the need for more x-ray scanners, which eventually equals selling more x-ray scanners to more airports, which equals more money. the story itself will likely fade quickly, but when budget / legislation time comes, the incident WILL BE cited as an actual and factual real threat (dont forget the two f15's intercepting the flight).
I hear they have a new “Penis” bomb that really blows!
not real sure, how that threat is to be handled. with kid gloves or astroglide...
