Profiling isn’t as profitable as the scanning machines

BettyJean Kling

The reason our rights are being violated is because crooked bastards are getting rich off these scanning machines and profiling doesn’t make them any money! Anytime We The People get the shaft and the Criminals, Terrorist, Bad Guys, etc. etc. get off easy it’s because We The People are being sold to the highest bidder. Oh and George Soros is usually somewhere in the mix!

The companies with multimillion-dollar contracts to supply American airports with body-scanning machines more than doubled their spending on lobbying in the past five years and hired several high-profile former government officials to advance their causes in Washington, government records show.

L-3 Communications, which has sold $39.7 million worth of the machines to the federal government, spent $4.3 million trying to influence Congress and federal agencies during the first nine months of this year, up from $2.1 million in 2005, lobbying data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show. Its lobbyists include Linda Daschle, a former Federal Aviation Administration official.

Daschle, the wife of former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, lobbied against Chaffetz’s bill. She said bombs represent a real threat. “I don’t think it was Linda Daschle that made the difference” in L-3 Communications’ success, she said. “I think it was people understanding what the threat is and seeing these capable solutions.”

Rapiscan got the other naked-scanner contract from the TSA, worth $173 million. Rapiscan’s lobbyists include Susan Carr, a former senior legislative aide to Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee. When Defense Daily reported on Price’s appropriations bill last winter, the publication noted “Price likes the budget for its emphasis on filling gaps in aviation security, in particular the whole body imaging systems.”

Then this morning Carney also noted that former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff was flacking for Rapiscan.

As for the company’s other political connections, it also appears that none other than George Soros, the billionaire funder of the country’s liberal political infrastructure, owns 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. Not surprisingly, OSI’s stock has appreciated considerably over the course of the year. Soros certainly is a savvy investor.

Note that OSI Systems CEO is Deepak Chopra not the guru.

  1. If we object to being scanned we get searched. I had a pat down several years ago before it was enhanced and that was more than enough for me. I will be traveling before Christmas and plan to arrive extra early for my flight. I plan to get as much information about any TSA agent I endounter and I will report any abuse. I did not the time I was flet up since Patti Lepone was in the news objecting to the same thing. Why we don’t use the profiling / interviewing techniques that Israel uses, is beyond me. Every citizen who travels by air is not automatically a suspect. Only in the paranoia generated by our politicians could this abuse of authority and the campaign of misinformation be sustained. http://www.aclu.org/technology-and-liberty/aclu-reports-more-900-complaints-month-over-enhanced-tsa-security-measures
