rampant delirium over the proposed implementation of full-body
security scanners in airports reached new heights today as a
former EU minister suggested that all passengers need to have
their insides scanned to make sure they are not concealing bombs.
The former European Commissioner for Justice, Freedom &
Security, Franco Frattini, made
the comments in an interview with European radio
station Radio 24.
The scanners could detect "if a terrorist has swallowed
a capsule full of explosives and could become a human bomb,"
which would escape a metal detector, Frattini said.
"It is the most reliable instrument," Frattini, now
the Italian Foreign Minister said, as he defended full-body
scanners, adding that security concerns outweigh privacy.
The "right to security is essential for all other freedoms,"
he said, even if that means a "sacrifice" for the
privacy of passengers.
In an incredibly Orwellian statement, Frattini equated liberty
"Privacy is an inviolable right, but if a person does
not have the confidence to take a plane because she fears that
she could be sitting next to a man carrying explosives, that
is a negation of liberty."
The minister also said that despite increased security in the
wake of 9/11, we "cannot define as a collective psychosis
the legitimate worries of millions and millions of citizens
of the world".
Despite the fact that the machines violate child pornography
laws, and would not have prevented the Christmas Day bomber
from boarding Flight 253, according
to their designers, the aviation industry is being
strong armed by the British government into installing body
scanners at every major airport terminal in the UK.
Faced with the choice between draconian security measures or
massive queues and delays inside airports, the industry is opting
for the scanners.
In addition to moves already taken to impose "enhanced"
security on flights from 14 "terror prone" nations,
as well as random checks being carried out on all planes landing
at a US airport, President Barack Obama is also
due to unveil an "initial series of security reforms"
European representatives will meet in Brussels on Thursday
to discuss a co-ordinated response across the European Union,
which will most likely involve implementing the scanners in
"There has to be a clear transatlantic partnership when
it comes to introducing these sorts of measures," an
EU justice official said. "We are of course
observing what is going on."
Alex Jones has called for mass resistance to the efforts to
implement the body scanners, and any other technology that represents
a total violation of privacy, a health risk, and the next wave
of tyranny being metered out against the American people and
the people of the world under the phony pretext of fighting

represent the latest salvo in pursuit of the totalitarian takeover
of our society.
