Liquid in bottles closes KHTS all day


#1

The TSA sniffer machine detected something in womans carry ons at Huntington WV (KHTS) at 9:30 am this morning and the airport was closed. Bomb dog varified!
Airport still closed at 6:30 pm
This terrorist thing can effect even the smallest airport

So let me get this straight…

The woman was still at the airport late Thursday afternoon but was not under arrest, said FBI spokesman Jeff Killeen.

A screener noticed a bottle in a woman’s carry-on bag as she prepared to board the 9:15 a.m. flight to Charlotte, N.C., Booton said.

One bottle contained a gel-type facial cleanser, Killeen said.

The flight was allowed to leave for Charlotte, and the terminal was evacuated at 11:25 a.m., officials said.

So, it looks like her plane departed on time:

But the woman was detained and the terminal was evacuated TWO HOURS LATER??? I know that people in WV move slow (my family is from WV) as do government bureaucrats (I work in downtown DC) - but I guess WV bureaucrats move dangerously slow! Did it take 'em 2 hours to test the bottles, or 2 hours to decide to evacuate? THAT’S THE SCARY PART!

This incident, and the “claustrophobic” woman incident yesterday between London and DC makes me wonder if the terrrorists are making trial runs testing the system for future attacks…

I’m on 7 flights Sep 2nd, 3rd & 4th… :open_mouth:
