Janet Napolitano Lied
August 6, 2010 by Bob Livingston
Back in January, as we were covering the increasingly Orwellian security apparatus springing up in the wake of the Christmas Day false flag bombing attack on an airliner headed for Detroit, we documented how the Department of Homeland Security insisted their new naked body scanners weren’t capable of storing images of passengers. This despite the fact that the specifications for the machines clearly mentioned the need to store and transmit images.
At the time we were… skeptical. Actually, we said it stretched credulity.
Now we learn that the U.S. Marshals Service has admitted to surreptitiously saving tens of thousands of images recorded at a courthouse in Florida. In other words, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano lied when she said the machines couldn’t store images.
The images are easily manipulated to make full color photographs of passengers—and that includes pre-teenagers who are now subject to the scans in airports.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center has filed a lawsuit asking a Federal judge to grant an immediate injunction to halt the use of the scanners. Hopefully the Federal judge will recognize the DHS effort to install these scanners in every major airport for just what it is: an assault on our 4th Amendment rights and a further effort to monitor and control our daily lives and turn us all into passive sheeple content to be herded about in the name of safety.
