    Never let a several months-old alert "crisis" go to waste:
    TSA trying to capitalize on the embassy closures pushing Benghazi off the front page:

    Why should Al Qaeda ever blow anything up ever again? They've already figured out that all they have to do to make the NSA, State Department, DHS, and TSA crap their collective panties is to leak a little "chatter." We already know that the thieves, thugs, and dolts at the TSA will overreact to anything - including jokes about bombs in pockets that are patently empty, cupcakes, and beeping alarm clocks. They'll never pass up any opportunity to pretend they're doing "security" stuff.

    I posted some info over in the Travel Alert thread on why we may be hearing about this so-called terrorist threat all of a sudden.

    I have no doubt that it's because the NSA needs deflector shields at full power.

    No, Obama needs delfector shields. His government is so far out of bounds that its not funny.

    Seriously. Remember the good old days when the worst complaint you could make about a POTUS was in regards to his sexual indiscretions with a government clerk? Now we have government clerks paid and mandated to engage in sexual indiscretions with the traveling public.

    Nice (expletive deleted) work, Obama.

    "Though the Transportation Security Administration has long been concerned about liquid explosives being used in potential devices -- as it was during the failed Christmas Day bombing in 2009 -- the new tactic allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing into the liquid to make the clothes themselves into explosives once dry.

    "It's ingenious," one of the officials said."

    Due to this new threat, all travelers will be restricted to Three (3) articles of clothing, which must be put in one (1) one quart (1 qt) bag before being scanned at the checkpoint. We'll all just have to adjust our moral standards to conform to this new reality. -- Pistole
