TSA Increases Scrutiny Of Phones On US-Bound Flights

From an irony proof Associated Press:

TSA: Some on US-bound flights must turn on phones

By WILL LESTER | July 6, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Passengers at some overseas airports that offer U.S.-bound flights will be required to power on their electronic devices in order to board their flights, the Transportation Security Administration said Sunday.

The TSA said it is requiring some overseas airports to have passengers turn on devices such as cellphones before boarding. It says devices that won’t power up won’t be allowed on planes, and those travelers may have to undergo additional screening.

"As the traveling public knows, all electronic devices are screened by security officers," the TSA said in the release announcing the new steps.

American intelligence officials have been concerned about new al-Qaida efforts to produce a bomb that would go undetected through airport security. There is no indication that such a bomb has been created or that there’s a specific threat to the U.S.

How can there be anything to worry about? Obama has destroyed Al Qaeda. And Obama and his media minions have told us constantly that there is no way Al Qaeda can be a threat to the United States.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson recently ordered the TSA to call for extra security measures at some international airports with direct flights to the United States…

"We continue to evaluate things," he said. "The screening we have right domestically from one domestic airport to another is pretty robust as the American traveling public knows. In this instance we felt that it was important to crank it up some at the last point of departure airports and we’ll continually evaluate the situation." …

Mr. Johnson is so right. You can’t be too careful screening people allowed to come to the US.

    don’t worry, they also made those 60k “children” at the border remove their shoes before crossing into the U.S.
    and judging by those recently released purchase orders, they must have checked their underwear for explosives , too.

    Sgt Bergdahl shared his fine tuned cell phone & language skills to the TSA.

    why would a terrorist bother to fly into the U.S. when you can simply walk across the border?
