Except when it's not an Arab.  Like the British born shoe bomber.

Yes, let's all cower under our beds in fear of people who think setting C4 on fire is the way to exploding planes.

Nothing would bring me more glee than having ALL Islamic terrorists try that.

Nitrated hexamine and similar compounds are toxic when burned.

Not healthy.

It's really irresponsible to suggest that suicide bombers try to use simple fire to light plastic explosives.  undecided

Alternatively they may try setting their underoos on fire. That's cool too.

If they can't probe him rectally, then they'll probe him with all the legal/LEO resources they can throw at him. Cry

And to add continued petty TSA-style insult to injury:

Quote
Michael J. Aguilar, chief of the TSA office in San Diego, called a news conference at the airport Monday afternoon to announce the probe. He said the investigation could lead to prosecution and civil penalties of up to $11,000.

TSA agents had told Tyner on Saturday that he could be fined up to $10,000.

“That’s the old fine,” Aguilar said. “It has been increased.”

Probably because of inflation.  Dog's gotta eat, ya know?

It is much more powerful to seek Truth for one's self.  Seeing and hearing that others seem to have found it can be a motivation.  With me, I was drawn because of much error and bad judgment on my part. Confronting one's own errors and bad judgment is a very life altering situation.  Confronting the errors and bad judgment of others is usually hypocrisy.

I can't help but wonder if they're now going after this guy with both barrels to try and discourage others from opting out on opt-out day? Which if it gets enough public participation, will get a lot of media coverage and give the TSA the metaphorical bloody nose.

If they are, bad move on their part. They're reading the mood of the country about as well as Pelosi did.

Supposedly "unsaved" scans from a courthouse.

The US Marshalls that did this, did it illegally.

Suppose they'll be held accountable?

Suppose anyone else saved pics on nekkid scanners?  Suppose they'll be held accountable?

Ayep.  Welcome to the future.  It's a lot like the past. 

I had to agree with the folks that say we're living in science fiction.  We have swarms of semi-autonomous drones that we use to assassinate our enemies in many places around the world, we have massive active domestic surveillance programs, any telecommunication connection can be tapped on the fly, we can communicate across the world in full video with barely noticable lag or expense, we have robots active on other planets, we genetically modify life every day, we can actually move around individual atoms and do interesting stuff with them, people are starting to do biological engineering in basement labs to create new life, etc.   Most of this so routine, we don't even think about it. 


Some of us are not surprised that we ended up with combination of Firefly, Shadowrun and Count Zero instead of say, Star Trek where everything is so neat and clean.   Tech changes.  People don't.  Governments don't.  We had a chance on July 2, 1776, in June 1783 and another on July 1794.  Looks like we've badly blown those.  But each and every day is a chance to turn the ship around...
