NatGeo Reveals the Liquid Bomb Plot

liquidBombPlot

Don’t you love the TSA’s 3-1-1 rule? Have we taken this security business too far? After all, what harm could possibly come from that Coke bottle that security agents eagerly confiscate from your grandmother’s luggage?

Apparently quite a lot.

National Geographic’s docudrama, The Liquid Bomb Plot, reveals the events leading up to the capture of a home-grown terrorists on the verge of blowing up 10 airplanes and killing over 2000 citizens using hydrogen peroxide injected soda bottles.

The show promises to play out like an intense spy thriller and the preview is both sobering and a little bit frightening.

The Liquid Bomb Plot airs at 9:00PM ET/PT on National Geographic.

    I flew for 20+, Pat and am happily retired.

    As for the gel bomb plot crap, it’s not crap. Gels and liquids could easily be used as ingredients for a bomb, so I support screening. On the other hand, so can solids. Most of those show up on the screenings, so kudos to the system.

    If you need to take a water bottle across the front, simply empty it beforehand and refill it on the other side. Yes, it’s tap water. I won’t hurt you.

    Although the threat is real, I do feel TSA is over doing it a bit. Even as flight crews we get that royal TSA treatment.

Please, share your thoughts and opinions
