This Week in TSA Drama

Baghdad TSA Bob reports:

A WWII era inert bazooka round was discovered in a checked bag at Chicago O’Hare (ORD).

A passenger at Portland (PDX) told the officer checking his ID that he had a bomb in his cell phone.

A Denver (DEN) passenger in the gate area was overheard on his cell phone stating: “I am going to blow up the plane.”


  1. That is most likely a non-functioning display version of the German WW2 era Panzerfaust. I don't see the purpose of the TSA making it a headline, nor do I see the harm in bringing that as a luggage at an airport.

    There are many history buffs in this country and we should be allowed to transport pieces of history without this level of scrutiny from an irrelevant organization. Especially, when it was already verified that it was inert and posed no threat.

    I don't understand the need of TSA bloggers to embarrass innocent, law abiding citizens.

    I wonder how long it is before they start blogging about dangerous undies carried by women on flights.

  2. If this really was what the guy is claiming it would be all over the media.
