Loose lips?

Headline: Report: X-ray machines don't detect explosives in shoes

Oh ok, so we'll just let every Abdul, Osama, and Mohammed know that, so they can plot their next move. Real good. One wonders who the threat to security is some times.

The government's new order that all airline passengers put their shoes through X-ray machines won't help screeners find a liquid or gel that can be used as a bomb.

The machines are unable to detect explosives, according to a Homeland Security report on aviation screening recently obtained by The Associated Press.

Right, and so the AP thinks, "oh great, this will sell newspapers!" Yes, it will, to every radical bomb maker on the planet. Playing poker with the AP must be an easy and rewarding game.

Win-win for them. Not only will it sell papers now, it will sell papers when a shoe-bomber blows up a plane!
