$1B of TSA Nude Body Scanners Made Worthless - TSA Suppresses Media Reports

The story starts here, with a bloggers report of how he easily circumvented the TSA's security by simply placing metal items where they wouldn't be seen. And no, that isn't where the sun doesn't shine. It's a simple pocket in your shirt.

Rather than addressing the problem, and examining the glaring flaw with their multi-billion dollar system, the TSA has been trying to "encourage" the media not to cover the story. Specifically, TSA spokeswoman Sari Hoshetz.

While I fully expect your average American mainstream media to quietly ignore the story, or spin doctor it beyond recognition, that won't stop the rest of the world.

In this February 2011 televised story, an undercover TSA agent passed through security five (5) times with her firearm without being detected. Simply moving her weapon to her side made it invisible, appearing black on the black background of the image.

I will say, you probably won't carry a full frame pistol. It's a bit bulky. Something like a Kel-Tec P-3AT weighing 11.1oz loaded would easily slip past. Such a thing wouldn't be ideal. Having once owned one, a tube sock with a couple rolls of quarters in it is more dangerous, and more likely to function as expected. Ahh, now two more items to be banned from flights. Socks, and change.
