Now Playing: Invasion of privacy and preverted protections
Topic: CIVIL RIGHTS
Hey so how was it that you wanted to be searched, since Bush allowed the 911 debacle ...now see what we are put through just to travel around when TERROR is such a popular tool to use to "warrant" the right to view, touch, frisk, or gawk. This is not in the US ...... but stay tuned, men are in the waiting ...just to see if your wife or daughter may be packing explosives......
to bad 911 was allowed (if not orchestrated) ...now we are subject to this type of "protection" ...... your being "duped" by manufactured terrorism and fear. Good Luck my peaceful readers........ good luck indeed!
Amsterdam's Schiphol airport began using new body-scanning machines at security checkpoints on Tuesday, becoming the first major airport to use the technology to find metals and explosives hidden under clothing.
The "security scan" system, which uses harmless radio waves to display head-to-toe images of people, is also being used by other airports on a trial basis, but Schiphol is the only one to deploy the technology for regular use at its checkpoints.
Going through the scanner takes about three seconds, allowing users to avoid metal detectors or body searches. For privacy, the digital images are viewed by security personnel in another room and deleted after they are seen.
Schiphol, Europe's fourth busiest hub, handles about 160,000 passengers per day at peak times and. So far the security scan is voluntary but officials are hoping to expand it to include all passengers, crew and personnel.
Schiphol is one of the world's most modern airports, with flat-panel screens, airport-wide Web access and iris scanners already on offer to those who want to bypass passport lines.
Some people object to the machines because they are concerned about the radio waves, rather than privacy, said Schiphol's Chief Operations Officer Ad Rutten.
But the alternative, being hand-frisked, is "never a happy story," Rutten adds.
