All it takes is a swab of saliva and security personnel can use the machine to gather genetic intelligence in less than an hour. The tests show personal details about one’s ethnicity, race and lineage. Current DNA test methods sometimes take several weeks.
Here’s a nice little quote from Richard Selden, the executive chairman of NetBio, the company that developed the scanners:
“This can be done in real time with no technical expertise. DNA information has the potential to become part of the fabric of day-to-day life, and this facilitates the process.”
Do you know what that means? It means that lowly, DHS approved morons are going to be in charge of gathering your DNA and running it into a machine. This company NetBio has stuck to the fast food mentality and taken something complicated like DNA science and made it really simple like the idiot proof fryer at KFC.
That’s great, people with a KFC IQ taking our DNA while employed for the government. That could only happen in America I tell you what.
The DHS is now going to sell people on taking DNA from them at checkpoints or whatever other situations they set up. Hell, they’ll probably start taking DNA as requirement for flying just to make sure you don’t have too much terrorist DNA in your blood.
