Thread Name: Suspect Item Shuts Down Jetport!
Subject: RE: Suspect Item Shuts Down Jetport!
What struck me was this quote:
"He didn't do anything wrong technically," said Robert Dyer, TSA's security chief for the jetport.
Note that "technically", how grudging can you get? Why didn't he say "He didn't do anything wrong"?
Actually I'm pleased they are willing to stick their neck out when they get suspicious. But a bit worried that they appear to think that a pipe bomb has to be shaped like a pipe.
What I'm wondering is, how the hell did InOBU, just a few weeks ago manage to get across the Atlantic both ways, without apparently causing any major disruption to services? I'd have thought his uillean pipes would have caused the checking machines to have a nervous breakdown. Not to mention Larry himself...
