I hope they go to Hungarian PMITA prison. Why do reporters think they are above the law?

Empty toilet paper rolls with fuses on them does no constitute a bomb. If they actually had C4/Semtex residue on them, then maybe...

I'm sure planting fake bombs on airplanes and wandering around in unauthorized areas is perfectly legal in Hungary.

ah, the TSA. I didn't know they were responsible for airport security in Romania.

FTA: An investigation has been launched after the pair entered Baneasa Airport in Bucharest dressed in hats and overalls marked "Al Qaeda Airlines".

It's actually a local custom.

I'm just going to say this again so we can get back on track:

It's in Romania, people. Bucharest, Romania. not Budapest, Hungary.

And just because it's about airlines does not mean it's about the TSA.

Why would we invade them? As far as I know they don't have much, if any oil.
 
2007-12-10 05:43:13 PM  
I wonder how many times they've tried this and gotten caught? For some reason I doubt they would report about that. It's all about the fear and panic.

Al Qaeda Airlines...Leave the Bombing to Us!™
 
2007-12-10 05:47:05 PM  
Why is it a big deal if fake bombs made it through? We shouldn't worry about those. Why don't they try real bombs next time?
 
2007-12-10 05:47:16 PM  
It would have been so much better if they had waited to do this until April 1st.
 
2007-12-10 05:49:12 PM  
Seriously, this has become a joke; we freaked out in front of the whole world, and now our discourse descends into bathos.

What exactly is a "Al Qaeda Airline" uniforms?
I could go to a airport with a rag on my head and be in uniform

I have flown in and out of that airport many times.

It is pretty third world.
 
2007-12-10 05:58:02 PM  
Yeah, but let them try and get a bottle of water on an airplane !! Now that's 2 hours interrogation, then a cavity search.

I actually think that they should reward these people!

anyone who can sneak a weapon or box cutter on a plane should get free tickets for life.
the airline should be fined 1 million$ for each occurance
and every security person who had contact with said passenger should be fired immediately

or

when the fbi stages a "fake" security test,
the airport should be shutdown of any of their bombs get through the checkpoints

TADA problem solved

FTA: Two journalists wearing "Al Qaeda Airline" uniforms have walked into a Romanian airport and placed fake bombs onboard planes.

Like to see them pull that in U S America. They'd get their water bottles taken away.
 
2007-12-10 06:10:05 PM  
Airport security is a joke everywhere, it's just more so in the states, as the TSA has elevated security theatre to an artform.

Does it matter? They succeeded that time.

On a slightly different note:

A man with a 3.2oz tube of toothpaste was detained for 6 hours at the same airport

/ yes, it's sarcasm
// screw airport security morons
 
2007-12-10 06:12:29 PM  
I cant wait untill security gets so tight you have to take all your clothes off to go through a check point, then they can see the dirty bomb in my pants
 
2007-12-10 06:15:14 PM  
Wow - I thought for sure this would be the Chaser boys... sounds like one of their stunts.

boot20: A man with a 3.2oz tube of toothpaste was detained for 6 hours at the same airport

I have yet to see anything that beats Warsaw airport in asshatery. You know how in the US they have a sign every 20 feet saying you can't bring liquid on board? Well Warsaw airport has no signs at all, anywhere (at least that I could see).

It takes 3 hours to get through the lines (after baggage check in which is another hour or so) and so by the time you get to the gate your plane has already been delayed for an hour. Don't worry you won't miss the plane as there are 40 other people still in the middle of that line. Now they only tell you about the liquids ban at the very end of the whole security process. So yeah I got to hear such lovely statements as this being told to old ladies "Sorry you can't bring those expensive perfumes with you, you got to dump them. Well you can go back outside and mail them but then you need to stand in line again. Your plane leave in 30 minutes."

Ya, it seems if you fly into an Eastern European airport you are just pretty screwed. The worst part is it seems like most of them have random rules and random enforcing of the rules....blech.
 
2007-12-10 06:40:08 PM  
I hope they are executed for their conduct, which both encourages the terrorists with ideas, and bursts our collective false sense of security. They need to die in a fire....

We are paying a damn high price for the semblance of security, how dare they take this opportunity to yet again show us there are security holes big enough to fly a Zeppelin though.
