I was mistaken, it’s Bismuth subsalycylate not subnitrate.

But having read your post I’d be inclined to check the actual compositio of the bottle. Just because it’s pink and smells like lifesavers does not guarantee its ID.

There are many household components that can be turned into very effective bombs.

This was most assuredly a dry run at a minimum. Imagine mixing the ingredients up during an airport layover in a toilet stall and then rechecking the bags. After the terrorist hops on a different plane to a safe haven country.

I will venture further and guess they were also carrying a boron based whitening toothpaste.

This is why the entire US based security system is insanity. You do not target items that may be used in terrorist attacks. You target the terrorist. The shaved mustache was a dead giveaway for further investigation.

The Israeli security experts after 9/11 said it best. You target the "terrorist" and you do not terrorize the passengers.
