I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the TSA issuing a report stating that they are finding ‘strange’ items trying to get onto planes and think that it may be a ‘dry run’ by terrorists. They ask us to be on the ‘lookout’ for terrorists, but then fail to tell everyone what the people looked like that were pulled over for suspicious materials in their bags. the political correctness is reaching a dangerous level. I have pulled out the seizures from the bulletin that was posted from an article on My Way.
San Diego, July 7. A U.S. person – either a citizen or a foreigner legally here – checked baggage containing two ice packs covered in duct tape. The ice packs had clay inside them rather than the normal blue gel.
A US person? Ok, I’m an American, I work for a very small start up company that has nothing but Americans working here. So I’m looking at these US Persons, and I see an Asian girl, a black guy, and myself (I’m Italian/Lithuanian for those keeping score at home). We are all US persons, we look NOTHING a like. But that’s only the first part, how about the second part?! Or a foreigner legally here. What?! What type of foreigner, and how do you not know if this is a US citizen or not?! But of course, that person is here legally, don’t you worry about that, there’s no way an illegal alien would be here. What did this foreigner look like- Was he a Middle Eastern Male in his mid 30s? Details please.
Milwaukee, June 4. A U.S. person’s carry-on baggage contained wire coil wrapped around a possible initiator, an electrical switch, batteries, three tubes and two blocks of cheese. The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives
Once again, A US Person’s baggage. What type of US person. Was it just some techy geek from Wisconsin that couldn’t leave home without his electronics and blocks of cheese?
Houston, Nov. 8, 2006. A U.S. person’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a 9-volt battery, wires, a block of brown clay-like minerals and pipes.
Once again, this is US person. You know what a US person looks like right? Where is the description? Was this a male or a female? Was this person still wearing his hard hat and reflective vest because obviously he just left the construction site and was catching a flight home to meet up with his family.
Baltimore, Sept. 16, 2006. A couple’s checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a block of processed cheese taped to another plastic bag holding a cellular phone charger
A couple- okay. Now, back in the 50s I would just assume that this is a man and a woman, but nowadays a couple could mean anyone. I’m really getting worried with all the cheese that Wisconsin has become the new hotbed for terrorism. What was the race of this couple? Are all 4 of these instances involving the same group of people? Should we be on heightened alert for those people?
Your homework tonight- to go out and surveillance any US Person or foreigner (who is obviously legally here), and make sure you keep a vigilant eye on their behavior. Just be careful to make sure that the John Doe provision passes before you do anything, I don’t want anyone getting sued on my account for being a vigilant citizen- I mean US person.
