Potential "Liquid Explosives" Helping Charity For The Homeless
The Associated Press reports that liquid items -- confiscated because they could be explosives -- at Eugene Airport, in Oregon, are being used by a charity for the homeless.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County has started picking up some of the things people have jettisoned for security reasons as they board flights.
Charley Harvey, assistant executive director of the charity, dug through trash bags Tuesday and took every bottle of shampoo and shaving cream he could find. The items will be distributed at the organization's First Place Family Center.
If liquid explosives were a real threat, the Transportation Security Agency probably would need a policy on how to properly dispose of items. If liquid explosives were a real threat, the government wouldn't want anyone -- including a potential terrorist -- grabbing such items in the airport trash.
Is it possible that the recent changes in airport policy weren't designed for our protection, but instead for the political gain of scaring Americans?
