Airports Warned About Terrorist Dry Runs - But, What The Fuck Are They Going To Do About It?

You know, with the John Doe law and all. So fucking stupid they are.

Ok, so terrorists may conduct dry runs. And, who is going to tell on them, when one can have the life sued right of oneself, just for mentioning that you think, perhaps, this or that guy might be a terrorist.

Anyway, from the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON - Airport security officers around the nation have been alerted by federal officials to look out for terrorists practicing to carry explosive components onto aircraft, based on four curious seizures at airports since last September.

The unclassified alert was distributed on July 20 by the Transportation Security Administration to federal air marshals, its own transportation security officers and other law enforcement agencies.

The seizures at airports in San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston and Baltimore included "wires, switches, pipes or tubes, cell phone components and dense clay-like substances," including block cheese, the bulletin said. "The unusual nature and increase in number of these improvised items raise concern."

Security officers were urged to keep an eye out for "ordinary items that look like improvised explosive device components."

The 13-paragraph bulletin was posted on the Internet by NBC Nightly News, which first reported the story.

A federal official familiar with the document confirmed the authenticity of the NBC posting but declined to be identified by name because it has not been officially released.

"There is no credible, specific threat here," TSA spokeswoman Ellen Howe said Tuesday. "Don't panic. We do these things all the time."

Ok Ellen, I won't panic. None of us will. We'll just sit on our hands like good Germans, and ignore the tragedy unfolding, you stupid bitch.

Oh Jeez, did I say that?
