    I'll be interested to see if he's hailed as a patriotic defender against intrusive measures or vilified as an enabler of potential hijackers. But thanks all the same, QW. That was certainly one of the more interesting OPs on USMB.

    Another thing, why on earth have YouTube flagged this as "inappropriate for some users", thus having to confirm that you're over 18 to view it? It's drawing attention to flaws in equipment designed to protect people from harm, not porn. Are YouTube worried that the manufacturers of the faulty kit will sue them for hosting evidence that could damage their product and their reputation?

    I think QW should get on a plane with people who watched that video.

    Moron.

    Why's she a "moron", Jillian? I mean, if my loved ones were about to board a plane that relied on equipment to prevent hostile elements boarding before take-off, I'd be damned grateful if someone had proved that the scanning equipment relied upon to prevent terrorists taking over the flight deck wasn't up to the task. Indeed, Israel's Ben Gurion airport authorities rejected the scanners currently used by America's TSA because their analysts had identified the poor performance of this kit as well. Previous to this young man, in fact.

    Seeing as how we all just carried guns through the TSA body scanners I think we would be safer than the idiots that rely on the government to protect them.
