Dry Run #784,359?: Who’s Testing the System with Toy Grenades?

By Debbie Schlussel
I coined the phrase “Dearbornistan,” but the whole Detroit area is The Greater Empire of Metro Detroitistan (or Dhimmistan–take your pick).
The latest example of this is the tiny, tiny, tiny blurb the Detroit Newsistan “dedicated” to a major story:

Romulus: Screeners Shut Down Terminal
A toy hand grenade shut down part of the McNamara Terminal at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport for nearly an hour on Monday, officials said. The screening gate in the center of the terminal was closed about 2:15 p.m. when officers found a suspicious package sent through screening by an elderly woman. The terminal reopened just after 3 p.m



Real or Fake?: Can You Tell the Difference?

Gee, just after the FBI and TSA warned us (and airports) to be on the lookout for toys being used to hijack and/or blow-up planes.
Strangely, they don’t disclose the identity of the person carrying the toy grenade. Gee, I wonder why?
Maybe the “elderly woman”‘s name is Hamida. And why would an “elderly woman” be taking a toy grenade on a flight?
Where there’s smoke . . . .

In these recent news stories about the Los Angeles and Chicago airports failing miserably, missing 70%, they were both run by government security. San Francisco has a private security firm doing theirs, they missed 20%. What’s the set up at Detroit, inquiring minds want to know.
