Newsflash: TSA Does Its Job

inert suicide vest

In its “2013 Year in Review” blog, the Transportation Security Administration brags about detecting the above inert suicide vest in checked baggage. The SVEST was just one in a series of inert (that means little or no ability to react, geniuses) explosives items that agents found including:

– A landmine

– Blasting caps

– C4

– An IED

– A World War II-era bazooka round

TSA said they were apparently being used as training aids for explosives experts (or terrorists?), novelties or gag gifts. Makes you wonder what goes through someone’s mind as he’s packing his suitcase. Clearly not a whole lot.


About Chairman Mao

I like fomenting socialist revolutions and purging my homeland of pseudo-intellectualism and capitalist dogma. I also like sports, dogs and food (although I wouldn't consider myself a foodie).
