Family Security Matters
With sweltering summer heat and long lines, no one can be happy about the latest Transportation Security Administration edict on powering up cellphones (and other devices) before heading to the gate at some overseas airports.
Sure, it’s another TSA “hassle,” but the new rule is for a deadly serious reason.
The Department of Homeland Security believes – based on sensitive information they’re not sharing with us – that al-Qaeda is still targeting America, especially passenger aircraft.
This time the terrorist tactic involves building a bomb into a cellphone or other electronic gizmo that a terrorist can carry undetected through security onto a U.S.-bound airliner.
No real surprise; This is just the latest in explosive al-Qaeda cabals.
