    Except that they weren't taken through the body scanner. They went through the X-ray scanner in his laptop bag, IIRC.

    True. But it further shows the idiocy of digitally strip-searching people while missing obvious stuff. Perhaps if they'd spend more time looking for stuff they're supposed to be looking for instead of peeping at passengers and sticking their hands down people's pants, they might not miss so much.

    The simple fact of the matter is, every week that Blogger Boob posts the weekly "great catch", it's obvious these items were caught with the traditional WTMD/baggage screening. No NoS necessary.
