Do we really want to open up the latest security threats to a public discussion? No.
The TSA needs to stick to what they are good at...
As safe as confiscating water bot..er...potential bombs and throwing them in a trash can...with all the other potential bombs...right there...in the big group of people...
Hmm. Maybe this is becoming a thing. TSA clerk in CVG made me pull my iPad out of my bag and run it separately this past Friday.

Government gets intelligence on a possible imminent threat about a passenger carrying XYZ and plans to do XYZ. Really think we should start holding public town halls to see if we all agree we should step up security in an area?
That intelligence should not be considered credible unless it also includes a possible suspect or suspects. "Everybody" is not a suspect and shouldn't be treated as one.
Its targeted towards certain carriers to certain destinations at the moment.
But I heard that was just racism.
"At the moment."
I fear that we all have political battle stations that we are so used to jumping to now that when something of actual consequence comes about we wont even see it.
We have two reliable reports from actual pilots here that it was at local CONUS airports. CMH and CVG.
Pretty clearly more skullduggery from Suthernjets. First they steal JetBlue's gates now they're trying maintain their hideous IFE empire through turrurism!
Because they were asked to put an iPad in a bin? That's different than a ban on inflight usage from targeted airlines and city pairs. I dislike the TSA and this administration and the CF they are as much as anyone, but I am willing to assume they are doing this to disrupt a planned attack they have intelligence on. If they extend it worldwide in purpituity "just in case" then it will be a different story.
The only targets are Oceanic Airlines flights from Krakozhia.
Nonsense. Krakhozia dissolved shortly after Tom Hanks was allowed to leave JFK.
They don't operate any, but like State Department Travel advisories they do operate on the feeding trough of DIA Intel dumps which guide policy.
I'm amazed at the shock of people that actions like this to disrupt possible movements against us are occurring. Yes interruptions to the status quo or inconvenient, but interrupting your steady state patterns are one of the most effective tools to deter and subvert hostile tactics.
There are actually a large number of airports/carriers being reviewed at the moment who will possibly lose their direct access to US airports because that first line security/customs they operate are so abhorrently inadequate we need to route those people through second stage screenings at a place like Heathrow or Frankfurt in order to insure the moron in Kuwait/Bahrain/etc wasn't just Inshalla'ing people through when he is sitting at an X-ray scanner that hasn't worked in months.
Sorry if that sounds like a rant, but I just went through Kuwait International the other day with most of my Brigade S2 element and we were astounded at the stuff we saw.

Are you saying it's no longer the terrorist threat TSA would have us believe..?
I had to pull my laptop out in Miami the other day at one checkpoint, an hour later it was fine in the bag at another at the same airport. It's more likely just incompetence.
