UPDATED: WTF?! FBI Detains Pressure Cooker Found in Man’s Luggage, But Not Man (Who Had Bomb Making Lit)
**** UPDATE: It turns out that the man with the modified pressure cooker also had bomb-making literature and batteries wrapped in tape on him. And, yet, they let him go????? WTF?! See video, below. ****
The Boston Marathon terrorist attacks were not about pressure cookers. They were about the religion of the people who used the pressure cookers to murder and maim nearly 300 Americans: Islam. But, because we are a nation dominated by political correctness (and no common sense), the FBI has started investigating pressure cookers, instead of the TSA profiling Muslims. Take the man who was stopped at a Hawaii airport with what appeared to be a modified pressure cooker in his luggage. Yes, a modified pressure cooker sounds suspicious, and why would you have that in your luggage? On the other hand, the FBI let the guy go (if his pressure cooker was so dangerous, why let him go?), and instead “detained” the pressure cooker for further “analysis.” (Maybe they will make soup or stew with it?) That’s absurd.
The FBI held a passenger for questioning Wednesday when he tried to check in at Hilo Airport luggage containing what appeared to be a modified pressure cooker. The item was found during a Transportation Security Administration screening. On April 15, two bombs made from pressure cookers killed three people and injured 260 on at the Boston Marathon.
In Wednesday’s case in Hilo, authorities did not arrest or charge the man with any crimes and he was released. The FBI did seize some contents of the man’s luggage in addition to the pressure cooker. No explosives were found in the luggage or on the passenger, the FBI said. “The pressure cooker will undergo FBI analysis,” a written statement from the FBI said.
“The FBI does not believe that this incident poses any imminent threat to civil aviation based on our limited investigation thus far,” the FBI said. FBI Special Agent Tom Simon would not provide the passenger’s age, where he lives or any further details on the case.
Yes, we are a nation of security theater, NOT a secure nation. Not even close.
Profile people, NOT cooking devices.
And if a guy has a modified pressure cooker AND bomb making literature AND batteries wrapped in tape, um why the heck are you setting this guy free???
FBI = Famous But Incompetent.
