Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Report: Airport X-rays DON’T detect explosives - Bush has been Making Americans Take off their Shoes Off for Nothing

The Associated Press has learned that airport x-ray machines are unable to detect explosives in shoes according to a Homeland Security report that the Bush Administration has had since April of 2005. On Sunday the Bush Administration made x-raying shoes of passengers mandatory, but most airports had been doing it since 2001.
In its April 2005 report, "Systems Engineering Study of Civil Aviation Security — Phase I," the Homeland Security Department concluded that images on X-ray machines don't provide the information necessary to detect explosives.
So even though the Bush Administration has known that x-raying shoes is useless in detecting explosives in shoes for more than a year they continued to have passengers take off their shoes and have now made it mandatory. How much more ineptitude and absence of true protection from terrorists can the American people take?

Vote for change this November.
