    They are removing the restrictions on those too.

    Hate (not really) to say it, but gels, liquids, pocket knives, etc have nothing to do with “security” as El Al, and Israeli security, among others, have known for a long time, it IS about “profiling” BEHAVIORS, not ethnicity, race, or nationality.

    Our Border Patrol and Customs officers have known this for decades, and it’s why they’re trained to observe BEHAVIORS of persons crossing the borders, or coming into the country on airliners or other transportation.

    The TSA “rules” were written by morons (political appointees, NOT “Civil Service”) put in charge after 9/11 who had kindergarten level of education about actual security.

    Fire the TSA goons & replace them with security agents highly trained in behaviour profiling & we’d have safer flights w/a lot less hassle.

    The TSA can’t tell the difference, either, because the explosive they are supposedly guarding us against does not exist. These restrictions were put in place after some nitwits blabbing about “liquid explosives” were arrested. In fact, the closest chemical to that which they were discussing would require one component stored in dry ice, and would have to be mixed precisely or they would get no effect. This does not require rifling everyone’s bag for shampoo bottles…
