Apparently brown folks need a good consistent tale to enter the U.S. with a pressure cooker. Heaven fordbid that they should have to buy one at WalMart after arrival. Global Post: Saudi man with pressure cooker arrested at Detroit airport What object is technically legal to bring on an airplane but most likely to get you thrown in jail? In the wake of the tragic Boston bombings, pressure cooker now seems to be the most likely answer.Hussain Al Khawahir, a tourist visiting from Saudi Arabia, was arrested at Detroit Metro Airport after officials found that he was missing a page from his passport and was carrying a pressure cooker in his luggage. In the criminal complaint, viewed by the Detroit Free Press and other agencies, officials allege that Al Khawahir changed his story about the pressure cooker.Police say that he first claimed that he was bringing the pressure cooker from Saudi Arabia as a gift for his nephew in Ohio, because pressure cookers are not sold in the United States.He then admitted that pressure cookers are in fact sold in the United States, but complained that they are cheaply made, US officials allege. At his court appearance today, however, federal officials didn't make it clear whether or not they think the suspect was actually planning an attack. Article in the Detroit Free Press (link bolded above) gives better coverage of the story.
