Adam Savage From Mythbusters TV: "TSA X-Rayed my junk, but they missed two 12-inch industrial razor blades in my coat"

Video - Adam Savage tells an interesting story...

Nice job, TSA.  Is anyone surprised by any of this.  They rob us of our personal liberties in the name of increased security, Obama extends the Afghan invasion until 2014 and borrows $431 billion more for the privilege, while Al Qaeda shifts to Yemen and dozens of other citi-states, and Adam Savage gets through the x-ray scanner with 24 inches of razor-sharp steel.

Adam Savage Mythbusting Airport Security: "What the F*ck, TSA?"

Why Was This Boy Stripped at Airport Security?

[Updated with Official Statement by the TSA]

Update: The TSA has admitted the incident in an official statement, but they claim that no claims have been filed by the father:

A video is being widely circulated showing a shirtless boy receiving secondary screening from a Transportation Security Officer (TSO). A passenger filmed the screening with their cell phone and posted the video on the web. Many are coming to their own conclusions about what's happening in the video which is now perched at the top of the Drudge report and being linked to in many other blogs and tweets. We looked into this to find out what happened.

On November 19, a family was traveling through a TSA checkpoint at the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Their son alarmed the walk through metal detector and needed to undergo secondary screening. The boy's father removed his son's shirt in an effort to expedite the screening. After our TSO completed the screening, he helped the boy put his shirt back on. That's it. No complaints were filed and the father was standing by his son for the entire procedure.

It should be mentioned that you will not be asked to and you should not remove clothing (other than shoes, coats and jackets) at a TSA checkpoint. If you're asked to remove your clothing, you should ask for a supervisor or manager.

They were not looking for 12 inches of steel, they were more interested in his johnson.

I will say again, exactly how many white people, African Americans, Oriental Americans, children, nuns, Jewish Americans, hot chicks, and people with medical implants have we had attacking America with airplanes in the last 10 years?

Perhaps someone in government can tell us why we are presumed "terrorists", yet they are not. The conservative right is so liberal anymore it is hard to tell the left from the right. You know, those people who look like Congressmen in the airports could really be imposter's looking to get a bomb on the plane...

Though TSA would probably miss the bomb to find their johnson also, "yep, he has a johnson, let him go". The real terrorists will just start using private charter planes or national big box store shipping containers, it is not like Osama can't afford it.

Naked Body Scanner Companies Heavily Lobbied Politicians to Push Use in Airports

I'm guessing the TSA smurf in the private room never saw Adams' junk. He was still masturbating to the image of the 8 year-girl that went through the scanner just before him.

Why the TSA Practices Could Result In Public Rebellion or a Terrorist Attack

But DB, this will get the people to either Riot the TSA, or just stop flying. Something is about to happen here in America. The people have had enough. We all know this is next...........................

Check this out................................
Crap, wait till the Christmas Season and all hell breaks out............& my post a few days ago, the Muslims are going to get to "Pat Them Self's Down"...........This is just more goverment Bull-Shit ! Its becouse of the Muslims we here in America have to go threw this "Bull Shit"....!

Subject: WARNING: Very Graphic Video of Bombing Aftermath “The Butt Bomb.”

Just when you thought it couldent get any worse..............next the TSA will start doing cavity surches before you can get on the airplane. Evan that Prety little wife and cute little 12 year old. Then we should of seen it comming, Ha ? Or, everyone just needs a Cat-Scan at the airport. Wonder if Obama Care will cover the cost.....?

I am posting this because the sequence that begins 8:45 minutes into the report shows the results of the attempt to kill a Saudi official with an "internal bomb," and may be of interest to people seriously interested in the effects of such explosives. But it shows the body of the would-be assassin in graphic detail, so be warned.

And You Thought TSA Pat-Downs Were Bad...
As you slog through security lines this holiday weekend, wondering if you should join the ranks of the anonymously naked observed by an unseen TSA agent or go eyeball to eyeball with one who pats you down, and pats you up, and pats sideways and roundabout with a little probing here and there—and there!—just remember it could have been so much worse. The specific terrorist bomb plots and propaganda that brought us to this humiliating state of affairs began more than a year ago with what some cops discreetly called “the body bomb” and others, rather more coarsely, called “the butt bomb.”

Doctors sound TSA germ alert for STD's...........

Syphilis, lice, gonorrhea, ringworm, chlamydia, staph, strep, noro and papilloma viruses all are part of the possible fringe benefits when airline passengers next go through a full hands-on pat-down by agents of the federal government's Transportation Security Administration, according to doctors.

<Gazes into Crystal ball>

The Department of Homeland Security today announced that any citizen revealing any failure or ineffectiveness of the TSA screening procedures will be consider to be providing material support to terrorist, punishable by not less than five years imprisonment without judicial review due to National Security.

Adam Savage and his partner did a show "proving" that Oswald did it! Ha!!!!!
I trust nothing these clowns say. Corporate shills fronting for the man!
It is just like Bugliosi talking about going after Bush after having done a nonsense tome about the JFK assassination.
Adam Savage makes me sick!

Sad, yes, but worse is the fact that the TSA and radiation machines were precipitated by false flag events.
Just search Kurt Haskell and Christmas Day Bomber and read about how an Indian Intelligence Service Agent from RAW ushered the Christmas bomber onto the flight from Amsterdam into Detroit over the protestations of the flight crew and the hysteria resulting therefrom allowed Chertoff's Company (you know that Chertoff, the same Israeli Dual Citizen who headed the FBI investigation into the 911 False Flag when all of the evidence mysteriously disappeared and most of the building pieces were shipped off to China for meltdown) to have the radiation pornography machines installed in US airports. .
What a bunch of criminals- what a crock of shit.

If you ask any TSA personnel, they won't know who really did 9-11, the 7/7 London subway bomb, that the U.S. Senate proved the DH oil well in the GOM was blown out on purpose, that the underwear bomber was a CIA set-up, or any of another 1000 relevant questions to national security, because they DON"T CARE. But they sure can find your junk in a hurry.
