This Week in TSA Drama

Baghdad TSA Bob reports in:

A belt buckle knife was discovered after a passenger walked through the metal detector at Fort Lauderdale (FLL).

A one-inch blade was detected concealed within a shoe at Spokane (GEG).

A passenger at Lubbock (LBB) approached checked baggage screening, dropped off his bag and stated, “There are two pounds of C-4 in there, be careful...” He later stated it was an “off-handed comment.” His off-handed comment resulted in his arrest and the closure of the terminal for over two hours while the bomb squad ensured the airport was safe for travel.
