Were the Dutch acting stupidly?

TSA RED flags considered PINK

Just a little FYI if you want to take something you shouldn’t be traveling with, just tape it to a bottle of Pepto Bismo. It will pass thru security no problem at all. That is unless you travel outside of the US. Well… then you got problems because you will be arrested for plotting a terrorist attack.

Airport security screeners in Birmingham, Alabama first stopped al Soofi and referred him to additional screening because of what officials said was his “bulky clothing.”

In addition, officials said, al Soofi was found to be carrying $7,000 in cash and a check of his luggage found a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, three cell phones taped together, several watches taped together, a box cutter and three large knives. Officials said there was no indication of explosives and he and his luggage were cleared for the flight from Birmingham to Chicago O’Hare.

Geez, this profiling of Muslims in Amsterdam has just got to stop. Perhaps they need to have some sensitivity training from the TSA.

Some snark while in Chicago Ohare the Pepto Traveler was given an application for the US/Muslim outreach program. Poor guy had he just filled it out he’d have a job now instead of sitting in a Dutch prison on terrorism charges.

UPDATE*At the last report, we are hearing even though al Soofi checked his luggage on a flight to Washington’s Dulles airport for connections on flights to Dubai and then Yemen, even though he did not board the flight himself, he and his friend who he met up with along the way and went on to Amsterdam with are no longer under suspicion.

Ahhhhhhh! America to the rescue- no Doubt POTUS alerted the Dutch that they were acting stupidly!

  1. I never realized that Pepto Bismo could disable
    a magnetic field then again I have no reason to do
    so.
    Seriously when are we going to open our eyes to the
    Fact “some” people want to kill us in large numbers?
    That “some” people continue to try to use airplanes to accomplish
    that?
    That no matter how hard POTUS tries to have us believe
    otherwise…it just ain’t so.
