Leave Your Thoughts at Home (Land Security)

September 26, 2008

This is right off the Sci-Fi channel. Homeland Security is working on a scan that reads your mind. That’s right; if you have Evil-Doer thoughts you will be arrested.

It has a series of sensors and imagers that read your body temperature, heart rate and respiration for unconscious tells invisible to the naked eye — signals terrorists and criminals may display in advance of an attack.
But this is no polygraph test. Subjects do not get hooked up or strapped down for a careful reading; those sensors do all the work without any actual physical contact. It’s like an X-ray for bad intentions.

That is right, if you have a bad day, words with the spouse, or just pissed off because of the delay going through security, you could miss that flight. They ran the test on 144 people in Maryland, and they didn’t know about it. This and other things about this scan bring up privacy issues. However The Watchers of the Homeland say they are not becoming Big Brother.

Once you are through the FAST portal, your scrutiny is over and records aren’t kept. “Your data is dumped,” said Burns. “The information is not maintained — it doesn’t track who you are.”

This seems simply amazing, seeing that they have the Naked Machine, and are involved in the advancement of RDIF Chips.

The Transportation Security Administration promises no one will see the revealing images except trained security agents staring at computer screens in a nearby room. And, they say, the body scans will be deleted after agents examine them just long enough to determine whether any suspect materials – such as types of metal, rubber, plastic, or liquid – are concealed beneath the travelers’ clothing. That should take about 12 seconds.
Passengers who refuse will most likely have to submit to a physical pat-down.

As far as the RFID Chips, Homeland Security is developing a Supper Chip to be placed in drivers license allowing them to be tracked and pinpointed from 30 feet.

The licenses come equipped with radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags that are readable through wallets, pockets or purses from as far away as 30 feet. Tiny microchips encoded with a unique identification number are incorporated into the licenses.

The ‘enhanced’ driver’s licenses are just the latest addition to the growing array of ‘tagged’ items – including but not limited to toll passes, office key cards, school ID’s, credit cards, clothing and phones – that will be voluntarily offered through selected states, but privacy and security experts are concerned that people who sign up for the program aren’t aware of the risks involved: anyone with a readily available reader device can also access the data on the licenses remotely and track people without their knowledge or consent.

So as you can see they are playing big brother and it is starting to look like there plan is about to reach its pinnacle.
