Cape Town - Women with silicone breast prostheses are advised to carry a doctor's letter with them if they want to escape inspection by American customs and security officials.

The Netcare travel clinics have issued a warning to women who have had a mastectomy and who use external silicone prostheses as they are targeted as a potential terrorist threat by American security officers.

Dr Andrew Jamieson, director of Netcare travel clinics, said since the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 reports have been received from time to time of people with prostheses who experience problems at airports, especially as a result of increased security measures. [Read More]

This would apply to <transgender> individuals as well so make sure you have documentation including receipts if you use false breasts.

Before HRT I used to wear these, will the madness ever end.  But how would silicone breast prostheses show up during a security check.  Is there a scan that detects them, or silicone?  Or did the woman tell the security officials that she was wearing them?

new security training ... "Grope for America" ... we have a similar measure here "Grope for Australia".

oddly it doesn't seem to make any of our citizens feel safer, the ungrateful swine!

Hay that is clever.. I wonder if there is a substance like silicon that goes boom.

What is the government supposed to do when it is trying to protect itself and it’s people when the peoples trying to hurt it do not play but any rules?

No something like this should never have to be, however people should not be trying to murder each other either.

Imperfect solutions for imperfect worlds.

Definitely something to watch like a hawk though. :\

I guess when terrorists buy silicone breasts they don't get a reciept? I assume all prosthesis stores have terrorist alarms that go off and they get no reciept. It is just another dumb measure that will not stop anything but will embarrass and delay many good people. My daughters husband flew to Ohio and back before he got home and realized he had left a full .22 clip in his backpack.     :icon_pistoles:           :eusa_doh:

without getting into too big a rave, i just ask you to note that the new "Security" measures have had these results:

1) NO terrorists have been caught anywhere -- no, not one!

2) ALL citizens have lost significant freedoms, everywhere.

do you think our our leaders are stupid? No?  then this must be the desired outcome:

* keep the masses uninformed and afraid.

* make social benefits dependent on military service.

* allow the security forces to arrest anybody, anywhere, anytime and hold them indefinitely without charge or trial.

This is an old, old recipe.  It is the basis of Empire, of Dictatorship, of the Police State.  It is so classic that you can read the measures, in detail, in novels even, like Orwell's 1984.

And if you want to cheer me up, start babbling about the Western Democracies, and how we have free'n'fair elections, i could use a good laugh ...

Hello Kitten,

I really have to agree with you, (in some countries) the removal of rights and freedoms in order to protect the people is classic.  I'm really surprised that people are still falling for that old form of a benevolent dictatorship.  I for one, like you, cherrish my freedoms, and I use my vote to protect them, as everyone who can, should.
