That TSA employees are giving themselves cancer by irradiating innocent travellers is perhaps the most striking bit of tragic justice we've yet seen in this entire fiasco. TSA agents commit felony crimes every single day against innocent travellers, molesting them, illegally detaining them and humiliating them as part of the "security screening" procedures. They're also irradiating them with the naked body scanners that we all know Janet Napolitano openly lied about. As a side effect of that irradiation effort, TSA employees are also irradiating themselves. Cancer, not surprisingly, will not be far behind.
Why are the body scanners causing cancer clusters among TSA employees? As we reported yesterday, Janet Napolitano lied about the safety of the devices, claiming that NIST had "affirmed the safety" of them. NIST fired back an email that specifically explained NIST doesn't test the safety of products at all! Ever! Therefore, all the claims that these devices were tested and confirmed as safe was complete B.S. from Napolitano. Just an outright lie. Not a shred of truth to be found.
You see, when government has abandoned the truth as a matter of policy, it can only resort to lies to further its agenda. The truth no longer has any place in the U.S. government, where criminals and thugs simply make up whatever lies they want and then pass them off as "truth" to the press (which dutifully reports all government lies as truths). This is precisely the case with the TSA and these naked body scanners. It's also the situation with the economy, the unemployment rate and the national debt, if you follow economic news. The American empire has become what the Roman Empire was right before its fall: A tragic cabal of professional thieves and liars who run the government and steal from the People.
Now, even though the NIST did not test the safety of these machines, it did warn airport screeners to avoid standing next to them because the machines clearly emitted doses of radiation that could mutate DNA and cause cancer.
The bulk of TSA employees, who we've already established are among the most intellectually-challenged individuals who are still somehow employable, don't seem to care that they're getting fried with radiation every day on the job. In fact, many TSA employees don't even understand the laws of physics, as has been demonstrated over and over when they tell travellers truly idiotic things like, "There's no radiation from these machines."
Gee, how do they think the machines work? Do they think they're magic? Who needs radiation when you can just use magic to see through people!
The one notable upshot from all this is the realization that TSA agents might experience so much DNA damage from standing next to those machines that they will be rendered completely infertile and therefore have no ability to reproduce. This, the scientists say, is called "natural selection." Those best adapted to surviving will pass on their genes to the next generation, while those who fail to protect the integrity of their own DNA get removed from the human gene pool. I can't think of a more appropriate example of natural selection in action. Darwin eats TSA agents as a mid-morning snack, it seems. So maybe those radiation machines do have a purpose after all...
All kidding aside, there's a kind of poetic justice in the idea that these agents who terrorize innocents will one day find themselves on the receiving end of a chemotherapy drip. It's not that we wish suffering upon anyone, but this is a suffering they have brought upon themselves. At what point, I wonder, will the cancer-stricken TSA employees finally figure out the government is lying to THEM, too?
