    Maybe they're going to test underwear?

    I'm not all that alarmed by this. With at least 4 law enforcement agencies, I can see bulk purchases of .40 caliber ammo, even reasonable quantities of sheet explosives so they can evaluate the latest trends in middle-eastern undies.

    I'm much more alarmed by the low-life scuzballs that work for these agencies.

    I wonder how strong their chain of custody is? Knowing TSA's past, it wouldn't surprise me if a few pounds goes missing.

    Maybe this is related?

    Government Security News: TSA to purchase 1,400 pounds of explosives for canine training program

    And as a bonus, we can all start mixing some in our garages:

    1400 pounds seems excessive -- that's a LOT of explosives.

    Well, well, well. Do you mean to tell me that they actually train the puppies to sniff explosives and not drugs? This is a pleasant surprize! Who'd a thunk it...:confused:

    Enough for 2800 coordinated false flag operations.

    The GSN article looks like the same RFP. They will probably use it in propaganda videos showing everyone how they are protecting them. Of course they'll imply that anyone can hide hundreds of pounds of explosives in their underwear because it is in sheet form.

    The stupid sheeple will probably go along with this without actually stopping to think about it. Thinking makes a lot of people's head hurt so they avoid it.

    Now the TSA is providing something worth stealing to their criminal employees. How long before some of those explosives are taken home or sold?

    All right, not a TSA supporter here, but what the heck is wrong with investigating this explosive material, and see if it can be detected? You might need a bunch of it to send around for detection and testing purposes.

    Look, the enemy knows they cannot get into the cockpit, and they have since tried via shoes and underwear to bring planes down. Why NOT make clothing (underwear) out of this stuff and detonate it on a plane when the plane is over a major city?

    It's already known that our enemy is willing to commit suicide (those that think that 9/11 was a false flag operation I care not to hear from- you have no clue).

    As to TSA's criminal employees, what did we have at Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, etc. in 1998?

    There's a lot of ways to bring down the USA, and some of it had been done with Wall Street greed, and that did not take our "enemy" to do that.

    My big fear is not them bringing down a plane again, but getting some of their morons to strap a bomb on and walk into a mall or theater, or train or bus and blow themselves up.

    I was in London in 1996 when an IRA idiot blew himself and others up at Aldwych circle one night on a bus. I was at my hotel a few blocks away, and heard the blast. I KNEW it was a bomb, and it was.

    Now, this is not an excuse for the TSA to check every bus, train, car truck, etc. However, might it be nice if they at least do some investigating into the latest in explosives?

    700 pounds each of two explosive materials. That is more than what would be needed for any detection testing. With the poor management at TSA I am concerned about how they will control and account for ~3/4 ton (1400 pounds) of explosives.
