Over the last few years, the Transportation Security Administration has implemented increasingly invasive yet illogical and ineffective airport security measures. While the USA’s borders remain wide open to malicious invaders, American travelers are subjected to x-ray naked body scanning that has been broadly compared with automated strip searches. And now, opting out of naked body scans results in pat-downs that would qualify as sexual assault if carried out under similar conditions by the same TSA officials only a few months ago.
TSA’s “groping” pat-downs appear to have triggered a tipping point in public sentiment, with outpourings of resistance erupting from every sector of American society.
Obama Administration’s Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has become the target of widespread derision for her part in rolling out TSA measures that would have been universally condemned as outrageous only a few years ago.
Derisively called “Big Sis” as reference to her Orwellian approach to security as well as to her robust physical features, Napolitano had to anticipate public backlash to TSA groping procedures implemented only weeks before Thanksgiving, the start of the busiest travel season in the country. Moreover, mainstream media is stoking the public fires of outrage, a sure sign that Napolitano’s gambit was intended from the start to make Americans angry.
The question then becomes, what is Homeland Security’s ultimate goal given that the TSA’s absurd intrusiveness is a concocted ruse?
Almost certainly, the recent TSA affronts to our dignity is a tactic to make the American public receptive for a biometric tracking database implemented as part of a national ID card system. Since biometric ID can be balky, slow and inconvenient, implanted radio frequency identification microchips which can be scanned quickly and at a distance will be the ultimate solution.
Expect a false flag attack to be used in the upcoming months to convince the American public that extreme, “enhanced” airport security measures are necessary for keeping us safe from terrorists.
