Schools in China and India use sabotage devices to thwart fraudsters. In Mexico, sabotage devices are allowed in churches and hospitals. Pakistan allows intervention in banks and libraries.

When President Obama walked on Pennsylvania Avenue after taking office, all cell phones in the area were blocked. The U.S. military used a sabotage mechanism to thwart a roadside bomb attack in Iraq.

In fact, strict U.S. interferometric measurements apply to everyone except government officials. This raises the question: is it correct?
