U.S.A. Security Sucks

by duncanr

An Egyptian born American citizen (i.e., swarthy complexion ?) has been detained at Cairo Airport after arriving on a direct flight from New York.

The reason he was detained ?

Egyptian security check of his luggage found –

two pistols

250 bullets

two swords

and 11 knives

In case you didn’t notice my emphasis above, the man arrived on a direct flight from New York.

Guess someone might want to ask how he was able to board a plane in New York carrying such an arsenal of weapons in his luggage ???

  4. juile, you really gotta do something about that spasticity!! dave mentioned a drug called valium in his post today -perhaps it could help? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


  5. πŸ˜† Lynn – the way I feel about some people, the Valium will just make me smile while I’m yanking that nail file around …


  6. Oh, ignore Ratty when he starts waffling in the early hours of the morning – he likes his wine you know πŸ˜†


  7. In Texas, they would call that “lightly armed” …
