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.
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.
