X-rays won’t detect liquid or gel bombs

WASHINGTON – The government’s new order that all airline passengers put their shoes through X-ray machines won’t help screeners find a liquid or gel that can be used as a bomb.

The machines are unable to detect explosives, according to a Homeland Security report on aviation screening recently obtained by The Associated Press.

The Transportation Security Administration ordered the shoe-scanning requirement as it fine-tunes new security procedures.

H.L.s Take
So let me see if I got this right. Now instead of having your shoes swabbed for explosives they just have you put them through the X-Ray machine even though that does not detect bombs.
Why don’t they just swab everyones shoes for explosives. I know they do it to me every time.
Maybe they don’t really want to find the explosives. If a plane blows up afterall they can take even more of our freedom away.

    This story came from the Associated Press. How else do you explain what they are doing? How else do you explain the gross incompetence in our Homeland security department almost 5 years after 9/11?

    I am talking about the part where you say they want another plane to blow up. Then they can take more freedoms away.

    Explain to me how YOU as a citizen of the US are any less free then you were in 2000 heck or 1995 for that matter??

    Try not to sound too much like a conspiricy kook ok?? Those who are advertizing here might want to distance themselves from that kind of non sense.
