Surveillance footage of engineer fooling $1 billion dollar devices released

Newly released video shows engineer Jon Corbett passing through a TSA body scanner with a metal object sown inside his clothing, illustrating how the federal agency’s $1 billion dollar fleet of scanning machines are completely useless.
The clip shows surveillance camera footage of Corbett passing through a body scanner with a metallic object attached to his shirt without being apprehended by TSA agents.
Corbett performed the same stunt at both Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Cleveland-Hopkins, after which the TSA ordered both airports not to release footage of the incidents.
Corbett’s original video concerning how he was able to easily trick the devices went viral when it was released back in March, prompting global headlines and a huge slice of egg on the face of the TSA.
The federal agency responded by tacitly admitting the claims made by Corbett were true. In its blog rebuttal, the TSA concentrated more on trying to downplay the incident than actually addressing the fact that Corbett’s crude method of sneaking a metallic object through security had been successful – rendering the controversial and expensive body scanner program completely worthless.
