Americans Being Microwaved Alive – Are You Next?
At first glance our government’s new program seems like a great thing. In today’s climate of terror it appears innovative of the powers at be to use new technology to keep us safe. That said, how do you feel about the unleashing on thousands of vans equipped with mobile X-ray units to scan vehicles at major sporting events, or even randomly, for bombs or contraband? All of this without consent or a warrant.
The good news is it hasn’t gone into effect quite yet. The US is buying custom-made vans packed backscatter X-ray capacity, but the okay has not been given to put them into practice.
The bad news is that compaies admit to selling over 500 ZBVs, or Z Backscatter Vans, to US and foreign governments. The Department of Defense has bought the most for war zone use, but US law enforcement has also deployed the vans to search for bombs inside the US.
The mobile X-ray technology works by bouncing narrow X-ray streams off an object like a car and then analyzing the scatter rate of the returning rays. Operators can then locate less-dense objects that could be bodies or bombs.
For many sheeple the use of these machines are not a red flag. The Backscatter X-ray is already used in the US in the form of so-called full body scanners you might find in your local airport. As usual we are given the “guarantee” of US officials promising to not store or share the images, however we all know how successful that has been so far.
While I doubt anyone would argue that expanding the X-ray technology for use on American streets is a powerful counterterror strategy, it is important to remember that radiating Americans without their knowledge is evidence of gradually eroding constitutional protections in the post-9/11 age.
