(NaturalNews) If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video has to be worth millions. And until millions of words expressing doubt, distrust, angst and displeasure at the ongoing multi-billion dollar scandal that is the Transportation Security Administration, don't expect the air travel experience in America to improve anytime soon. Or security, for that matter.

An incredible new video by Jonathan Corbett, a privacy rights activist who runs the Web site, "TSA Out of our Pants" and is involved in a Fourth Amendment lawsuit against the agency, shows just how worthless the TSA's billion-dollar body scanners really are (except, of course, for screeners to be able to scope out attractive men and women).

In the video, Corbett demonstrates how easy it was for him to take a metal object through a TSA airport security checkpoint in Cleveland in March of this year, one that was equipped with an expensive body scanner. Corbett videos the entire process, but the video he posted online at his site includes airport security video of the incident as well, which he says he obtained from the airport and the TSA after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Moreover, he claims the TSA became aware he was able to breach one of the most expensive pieces of airport security equipment currently in use and has spared little effort in trying to kill the story.

TSA warned media not to cover the story

"Let me tell you what the TSA has been doing since March to keep us safer - nothing, but covering this all up," Corbett said.

After his initial video of the incident was released, Corbett says the TSA began threatening mainstream media outlets against covering the story, adding that "several" media outlets reported that a TSA spokeswoman sent them a letter "strongly cautioning" them against sharing information that the agency was, in essence, violating basic civil rights by photographing travelers naked for what turns out to be no appreciable benefit.

Corbett said that a number of outlets ignored the TSA's plea and ran with the story anyway. A quick Google search by NaturalNews found that among them were London's Daily Mail, the New York Daily News and Australia's News.com.

So far, Corbett, an engineer, has been able to slip metal objects undetected through the international airport at Cleveland and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida. He went on to say that the TSA has informed both of those airports "to withhold security videos" which show him defeating the scanners and surveillance equipment. He went on to note that the TSA "frequently releases surveillance videos when it is in their interest."

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Corbett explained how the loophole in the system works.

Metal object in specially sewn side pocket invisible

Producing several images produced by the TSA's body scanners, Corbett said:

"You'll see that the search victim is drawn with light colors and placed on a black background in both images. In these samples, the individuals are concealing metallic objects that you can see as a black shape on their light figure. Again that's light figure, black background, and black threat items."

But, he continued, "If you have a metallic object on your side, it will be the same color as the background and therefore completely invisible to both visual and automated inspection."

Incredulous, he said, "It can't possibly be that easy to beat the TSA's billion dollar fleet of nude body scanners, right? The TSA can't be that stupid, can they? Unfortunately, they can, and they are."

In the surveillance videos, Corbett is seen passing through the scanners in both airports with a metal object slipped into a pocket that he sewed directly on the side of his shirt. He was able to get through the checkpoint without TSA agents - or the backscatter X-ray machine - discovering the contents of his side pocket.
