Hidden Government Scanners Will Instantly Know Everything About You From 164 Feet Away
Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your bodyagents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you.
And without you knowing it. The technology is so incredibly effective that, in November 2011, its inventors were subcontracted by In-Q-Tel to work with the US Department of Homeland Security. In-Q-Tel is a company founded "in February 1999 by a group of private citizens at the request of the Director of the CIA and with the support of the U.S. Congress." According to In-Q-Tel, they are the bridge between the Agency and new technology companies.
Their plan is to install this molecular-level scanning in airports and border crossings all across the United States. The official, stated goal of this arrangement is to be able to quickly identify explosives, dangerous chemicals, or bioweapons at a distance.
The machine is ten million times fasterand one million times more sensitivethan any currently available system. That means that it can be used systematically on everyone passing through airport security, not just suspect or randomly sampled people.

I think it is about time to put our foot down. Not quite sure how we do it though.
Guess that whole secure in their persons and property thing got left by the side of the road.
If this is for real, forget airports - they will be installed at grocery stores, post offices, sports stadiums, bus stations- you name it - Cowardly New World is here.

More than you would imagine from reading a headline and excerpt.
The where, though, is 165 feet away....

I read the hyperbole-loaded article. Not surprisingly, it’s loaded with hyperbole.
Wonder if this scanner can fit on a drone? That would sure help the Health Care Nazis, eh? They could put Bloomberg in charge. /s
We must turn all this around, it is getting to the breaking point. I think that is what they want. We break and they can REALLY change things. I don’t even like to think about it.
Sounds like the junk from the Terminator movies, made real.
I wonder if it can detect flatulence.
'you name it'? Okay, welfare offices.
I’ve been telling people for a few years already that gun rights will soon be a moot point. This is the proof. When they start mounting these things on light poles and telephone poles along with cameras(that can ID you from your face) on every pole, your puny antiquated little guns won’t mean SHIT. If they scan something on you they don’t like, they will instantly revoke your gun “privileges” and issue a warrant for your arrest. Then the drones will swoop in and tazer your ass from 30 feet above your head and wait for a paddy wagon to come hog tie you and haul you to a detention center.
Mark my words. It is less than 20 years away.
Thanks for the link.
However, discerning a lot about your chemistry IS NOT the same as knowing everything there is to know about you.
Words have meaning, and the outlandish claims in the article you posted are *still* hyperbole. Or, in the vernacular of the day, “bullshit”.
For this particular invasion of privacy? Here's the perfect new suit for the world traveler;
Talked with some guys that were trying to get $$ to develop just such an IED detection device about six years ago. never heard any more about it.
