An astonishing accidental admission during court proceedings was revealed proving naked body scanners at America’s airports were implemented for reasons other than to protect passengers from potential terrorism.
It’s going to be increasingly difficult for the establishment to keep using its media (FOX News, MSNBC, etc.) to terrorize the public with the constant threat of another potential terror attack. At least, as far as passenger airlines are concerned anyway. Now that the law of averages has once again proven the truth typically can’t be hidden forever. Especially when it comes to situations as monumental as the terror attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent policy changes Americans were forced to endure as a result.
Using the attacks as the excuse, as an example, opportunistic establishment politicians, along with the media, coerced Americans into sacrificing many of their time-tested constitutional liberties, in the name of a safety the government cannot truly provide. Some of those sacrifices included the rights to privacy, to be left alone and to be protected from unreasonable search and seizure. In addition to allowing the war establishment to forgo long-standing American tradition and war-crimes laws by attacking multiple countries that had nothing to do 9/11. All of which is amazingly still happening to this day.
This is in spite of whistleblowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden, along with rarely forthcoming mainstream journalists, allowing the public at large to finally realize what those who already live and think outside of the false left/right paradigm and the alternative media had unsurprisingly already become privy to, long before the general public. That the so-called War on “terror” was largely a hoax and that the US government had already been spying on American citizens for years. Also ironically having very little, to nothing, to do with combating terrorism.
Especially when taking into consideration the fact that both the so-called “Patriot” Act had been written and the US government had been spying on US citizens prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In addition to doing everything they can to make whistleblowing more difficult and dangerous, is it any surprise then that this same establishment and its media still attempts to demonize those whistleblowers and the courageous journalists that helped bring that information to light?
Acknowledging their courageousness and patriotism would not only compromise this establishment’s current, but waning, position as having the (false) moral high-ground, it would also force them to admit they were wrong and would begin the transformation of re-establishing the Constitution as the law of the land… The last thing this establishment wants. Which would also potentially land many of its violators, including many former and current “officials” at the highest levels of government, in some very hot water.
Which is very likely why no one in the mainstream media has been willing to touch the latest revelation to come out of the total debacle that is the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Highlighting why not even a clampdown on the truth, a.k.a. the war on whistleblowers, is enough to keep important information, such as exposing government corruption, from reaching the public, thanks to a simple, absent-minded clerical error by a clerk at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, classified, un-redacted TSA documents were accidentally submitted to the attorneys of a man who happens to be suing the federal government and the TSA for some of the Constitutional violations previously mentioned.
Despite years of publicly using 9/11 as an excuse to subject billions to invasive and embarrassing pat-down procedures that got progressively more intrusive over time, until eventually morphing into dangerous x-ray machines, a.k.a. “naked body scanners” (allowing TSA agents the opportunity to look under the clothes of everyone who walked through them), the unsealed documents the public wasn’t supposed to see shows the TSA admitting that none of it was actually necessary.
According to Courthouse News Service, the TSA admits that “As of mid-2011, terrorist threat groups present in the Homeland are not known to be actively plotting against civil aviation targets or airports; instead, their focus is on fundraising, recruiting, and propagandizing,” the TSA said. Adding that “the government concedes that it would be difficult to have a repeat of 9/11 due to hardened cockpit doors and the willingness of passengers to challenge hijackers rather than assume a hijacking merely means a diversion to Cuba.
If that wasn’t enough to get the average Westerner’s (a.k.a., those allegedly hated for “their freedoms”) Blood boiling however, the government also credits updated pre-flight security for that difficulty assessment, but the assessment was written “before the en masse deployment of body scanners and before the “update” to the pat-down procedure.”
Consider all this while also coming to terms with the fact that, rather than simply removing the scanners altogether after all of the backlash that has occurred since being implemented in 2007, the TSA is merely changing the machines they’re currently using to ones supposedly less intrusive.
But just in case there may be some left over confusion as to what the motive would have been behind what would appear to be such anti-American actions in the face of nothing but lies and propaganda, considering it appears as though the government knew all along the likelihood terrorists would target commercial airliners again was extremely low, a great place to start would be to fall back on an old investigative failsafe. Simply following the money-trail.
Some may remember a man by the name of Michael Chertoff. A man who not only co-wrote the so-called “Patriot” Act, but was also conflictingly appointed by Bush-43 as the second United States Secretary of Homeland Security. A position that was only made possible by the establishment of the Patriot Act itself.
But it was only after leaving that position as head of the DHS when, in addition to conflicts of interest with regard to power, money trail problems also start to come into play.
The “Chertoff Group,” founded by Michael Chertoff, just so happens to also be the consulting firm that represents the manufacturers of the naked body scanners that were in use from 2007 until earlier this year, Rapiscan Systems.
