poster, which will be released nationally. The models will be photographed in sexy
skivvies while posing in front of an airport body scanner.
frequent fliers, PETA staffers appreciate the TSA's job of helping to safeguard
America's skies. And in the same way that Charlie Chaplin famously deflated
Hitler in The Great Dictator, we
would like to make a mockery of the Al Qaeda mindset and lighten the mood. Our
ad will also be a public service, reminding people that we can all live longer
by avoiding a far more common threat to our national well-being: a meaty diet
that is associated with illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and

PETA Files readers know, vegetarians and vegans are significantly healthier and
trimmer and less prone to the major killer diseases than their meat-eating
counterparts are. TSA agents (and others!) who want to look bomb in their underwear can check out PETA's vegetarian/vegan

While the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and privacy advocates play hot potahto over proposed full-body scans at airport security checkpoints, we at PETA say, "Bring 'em on." Pourquoi? Well, several reasons, really:
Metal underwear! That's right: Coming soon to security checkpoints everywhere, TSA employees will get an eyeful of our message to NASA as caring individuals educate TSA employees about NASA's plans to blast as many as 30 monkeys with one huge dose of radiation. The agency will then imprison the animals by themselves in tiny steel cages and subject them to years of tests in order to assess how the radiation damages their brains and bodies. Unlike the rays emitted by airport body scans, this extreme radiation may cause brain tumors and other types of cancer.
Officials at the TSA have already been alerted that PETA's metal underwear is on the way. But we are wondering—will you expose TSA employees to the truth about NASA's experiments on your next flight?
