Bottles Test Positive For Explosives

Are you terrified yet?

Notice how she hasn't been arrested? It's because these machines aren't definitive in their ability to determine if a chemical is an explosive or not.

Now I'll admit, this could finally be a real plot to blow up a plane, but I doubt it. It's more likely I think to be some sort of lotion that has a trace chemical signature that the sensor picked up as a 'hit'.

This sort of event probably happens fairly frequently, but now we have to hype each one, in order to terrorize us properly.

CEREDO, West Virginia (AP) -- A West Virginia airport terminal was evacuated Thursday after two bottles of liquid found in a woman's carry-on luggage twice tested positive for explosives, a Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman said.

"The bomb squad is on site and the woman is being interviewed by the FBI," Amy von Walter said.

A machine security checkpoint screeners use to test for explosives registered positive, and a canine team also got a positive hit, von Walter said.

The level of stupidity and paranoia in this country amuses me. How is that lady going to stay fresh if they explode her douche? Bastards!

Wease,

Can you rent "Why We Fight" at your local video store?
Just saw it yesterday. Verifies all you been sayin' about the military/industrial/thinktank/neocon/lobbyists/congressional complex sucking this country dry and making permanent war our raison d'etre.

I feel trapped and helpless inside a giant criminal enterprise.

I'm sure the fact that the woman involved was Pakistani had nothing at all to do with the heightened hysteria. Facial cleanser? Those open pores are a threat to national security ma'am, now lets take a look under those bloomers.
