Airport Body Scanners Obscene and Dangerous

This is an interesting story By Dr. William Campbell Douglass on which was originally posted at under the title: “X-Rated Airport Scanner’s First Victim”.

An Indian film star has found himself the subject of an unexpected nude shoot.  You’ve probably never heard of Shahrukh Khan, but to call him an Indian actor would be like calling Stephen Spielberg a guy who makes films in California.

Khan is one of the world’s richest and most successful movie stars, even if he’s a complete unknown in the United States. He ranked 41st on Newsweek’s list of the world’s most powerful people last year — ahead of mighty Oprah, and only five places behind the Pope.

I’m not about to confess my secret love of Bollywood films — I’d never heard of the guy myself. But he’s got a cautionary tale for all of us, and it happened on a screen where Big Brother wants all of us to be the star.

“King Khan,” as he’s known, had the misfortune of strolling through one of those new full-body airport scanners I’ve been warning you about…the kind that peek beneath your clothing and snap an image of your privates, just in case you’re hiding weapons beneath your scrotum.

Airport officials and security “experts” have sworn up and down that these images aren’t saved…and that faces are automatically blurred so the screener, who’s in an isolated location, has no idea who’s getting Big Brother’s electronic evil eye.

But try telling that to Khan — because he says he was later greeted by airport workers in London who had printouts of his x-rated X-ray.

So much for their privacy claims — I hope you didn’t buy that hogwash in the first place. If low-wage airport workers can rape his privacy and get away with it, they can do far worse to you.  Meanwhile, their bogus safety claims are already getting a second look too.

The Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety says these things pose a health risk — and that pregnant women and children should not be forced through them. The report — which wasn’t meant to be made public — also said governments should have to justify their use of these radiation machines.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

Remember: There is NO safe level of ionizing radiation. If you have to fly in Big Brother’s world, I feel bad for you — because the plan is for EVERY air traveler, including pregnant women and babies, to pose for the government’s candid cameras.
