Booby Bob is right to a point -- the watch needed to be examined and cleared. If protocol called for a bomb squad to investigate it, fine. However, the description of McGann contriving to "conceal" the device by putting his coat on top of the bin (something many of us do everytime we pass thru on of their checkpoints) must have come from TSA. Clearly they were complicit in this smear and are only now trying to distance themselves form the debacle. In this early statement, at least, Nico "Pants on Fire" Menendez is fairly neutral: However, there is also no evidence of TSA distancing themselves from the arrest of McGann until the case unraveled. I'd love to see the checkpoint video of the arrest -- I'd bet the screeners are giddy with glee and high-fiving one another after they caught the big one.
