Homeland Security Detects Terrorist Threats by Reading Your Mind
Tuesday, September 23, 2008

By Allison Barrie

Baggage searches are SOOOOOO early-21st century. Homeland Security is now testing the next generation of security screening a body scanner that can read your mind.

Most preventive screening looks for explosives or metals that pose a threat. But a new system called MALINTENT turns the old school approach on its head. This Orwellian-sounding machine detects the person not the device set to wreak havoc and terror.

MALINTENT, the brainchild of the cutting-edge Human Factors division in Homeland Security's directorate for Science and Technolhttp://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,426485,00.html#ogy, searches your body for non-verbal cues that predict whether you mean harm to your fellow passengers.

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.

What is with the misleading story titles?

The device doesn't in any way, shape or form read your mind.

That implies IT reads your THOUGHTS.

It is a device that reads body signals.

Yeah, it sounds ridiculous, I mean, who isn't anxious when they're at an airport?

Which, in turn, might cause your body temperature to rise together with other fluctuations.


Just another example of how the government uses UNWITTING humans for experimentation.

Thankfully, this one didn't involve grotesque experimentation, but what were these unwitting humans exposed to?

What does this device project onto your body in order to make its' calculations?

Is it safe?

Why don't they test their own people?

Also interesting is that the reporter was invited to write a story about this testing and knew the exact number of citizens who were used unwittingly and wittingly.
