I am waiting for some intelligence to figure out possible employment of breast implant bombs or similar.
mothers have been asked to prove their breast pumps work, and drink breast milk to prove its really milk.
To be fair, don't forget the shoe guy.
You mean the shoe guy that took such a small amount of explosive it wouldn't have done much damage, and was stopped by other patrons before anything could happen?
There is a proven example of people with checked weapons shooting people at the terminal but they ban kindles.
Realistically getting something onto a plane is not *that* hard. Its getting the conspiracy to stay around and not get caught before some patsy (normally below intelligence) can perform the act and do enough damage to make a difference is far more difficult.
The term is "security theater" they need to be seen to be doing something to make people think things are safe rather than actually doing something about it. Also there is the "if some other idiot took on a shoe bomb why didnt they do something about it" syndrome, even though the treatment is worse than the risk.
To really do something about it the US needs to not pay minimum wage to some uneducated guy in a uniform, but to focus on information gathering and working with marginalized communities.
