A Saudi Arabian (that means, Muslim) man brings five weapons, including a stun gun, on a flight from the U.S., but, no worries, because the TSA says “no link to terrorism,” something they always say when there IS a link to terrorism.” Well, at least he was taking the weapons from here to Saudi Arabia and not the other way around, right?

A Saudi man was busted at JFK Airport after the Transportation Security Administration spotted a stun gun and four other weapons in his checked bag, sources said yesterday.
Mohamed Hefni, 54, was arrested in a first-class lounge at JFK at 4 p.m. Thursday after agents found the contraband in his luggage before he could board his Saudi Airlines flight to Riyadh, authorities said.
TSA Agent Ann Marie McLewd initially spotted the outline of weapons inside a black bag that Hefni had checked — and a peek inside the luggage by TSA Agent Phillip Desnyo revealed a fully operable battery-powered electric stun gun.
Desnyo also found three “electric stun batons,” an “electric stun pen” and a large can of pepper spray in the bag authorities said.
Hefni, who had been living on the Upper East Side, was arrested by Port Authority cops on misdemeanor weapons charges.
Hmmm . . . I wonder on whom this man was going to use these weapons. And why would someone need a “stun pen,” unless they know they are going to use it one someone they know who is sitting next to them or very close?
