TSA Invades Roads & Highways With VIPR Checkpoints

I’m sure this is poised to become much more wide spread now that al-qaida is quote “on the brink of using a nuke bomb.” Reported on The Vancouver Sun: http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Qaida+brink+using+nuclear+bomb/4205104/story.html

TSA Invades Roads & Highways With VIPR Checkpoints

The TSA has announced its intention to expand the VIPR program to include roadside inspections of commercial vehicles, setting up a network of internal checkpoints and rolling out security procedures already active in airports, bus terminals and subway stations to roads and highways across the United States.

Up until now, commercial trucks and other vehicles only were subject to warrantless searches and radiation scans at specially designated “state-owned inspection stations” traditionally set up at rest stops next to highways. These internal checkpoints, run by Homeland Security, the Department of Transportation, and the TSA, involve trucks being scanned with backscatter x-ray devices in the name of “safety” and “counter terrorism”.
