**** UPDATE, 07/19/07: Turns out the shoes contained a pedometer and the liquid was . . . ? Thank goodness that’s all it was. But still a huge TSA screw-up. ****
More Desperate-But-Not-Serious with the TSA over at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field airport.
Mark L. Jackson of Mark’s Soap Box writes that, this morning, the TSA lost control of a bag containing shoes with “electronic components” attached to them (Richard Reid, Shoe Bomber, anyone?) and a strange liquid substance. He writes that the TSA still didn’t find the bag or the passenger after re-screening all passengers.
Watch the video at CBS 8. You and I wait in lines and remove our shoes. And we use the stupid 3-oz containers in the 1-quart bag.
But the guy/girl who carries the pair of Nike Air Shoe-Bombers and large container of strange liquid gets lost. Thanks, TSA. Exactly what the terrorists envisioned.
