Who's Profiting On the TSA's Use Of Scanners? George Soros And Michael Chertoff
Wonder why the TSA spent billions of our tax dollars on scanners that don't detect explosives hidden in body cavities and can be easily fooled by someone who knows what he's doing?
Wonder no more.
One of the major contractors for the machines is a company called Rapiscan, and their political connections are impeccable.
One of Rapiscan’s chief lobbyists is Susan Carr, a former senior legislative aide to Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee who personally approved the contract.
Another shill for Rapiscan is George W. Bush’s Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, who earned part of his salary going on a media tour promoting the use of these scanners without disclosing that he was a paid employee of Rapiscan.
And finally, the big enchilada. None other than George Soros, Obama intimate and the primary financier of the Left's infrastructure owns 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. Not surprisingly, OSI’s stock has appreciated hugely since Rapiscan got their lucrative guv'mint contract.
Amazing how the dots connect, isn't it?
