Can you keep us pinged on this? Race and I have to take a shower.

Not with each other of course, but this is extremely interesting.

It certainly seems like airport/aircraft incidents are on an uptick.

A passenger was in law enforcement custody, the Transportation Security Administration said in a statement early Friday morning. Authorities did not provide details about whether the passenger had been charged or what investigators found.

Daisy, your flight will be find.

Depending on the airport, if it’s a larger one, TSA might send everybody through that machine to take nekkid pictures. You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to do it, just tell them (nicely but firmly) and they’ll give you a wanding/pat-down. They won’t be happy about it though. If they give you a hard time just be persistent but calm. Have a good trip.

Article updated:

The scare that closed the Miami International Airport for more than seven hours Friday morning was caused by a 70-year-old scientist who had a metal canister in his luggage that "greatly resembled a pipe bomb," a U.S. government official told CNN.

The item was rendered safe and no traces of explosives were found, the official said.

"So far there is nothing nefarious," the official said.

The man was detained but was not arrested and may be let go, the official said.

FBI Agent Michael Leverock said the man was cooperating with authorities and the item was being tested at a lab.

Most of the airport was closed for hours as a bomb squad team dealt with the suspicious item, which inspectors found when screening a checked bag.

A source close to the investigation told CNN that the passenger was an American and has a history that includes incarcerations. It was the man's history along with the suspicious item that ramped up concern, the source said.

what’s funny, is that it was some breaking story, I was late for whatever, had to shower, and I told someone to keep posting and watching the news while I bathed and was back online in 7 to 10 minutes!

and the rest, is history...

All the more reasons to burn a Koran on 9/11.

If a POTUS won’t stop Islam its “We the People” then.

I would risk inciting a dormant muslim now then to live in constant fear of them becoming more deeply embedded in our society, every day when CAIR complains it a positive note of freedom ringing.

The item was rendered safe and no traces of explosives were found, the official said.

So, if there were no traces of explosives, how could it have been rendered "safe"? Apparently it wasn't unsafe to start with.

If it’s Miami, it was probably full of coke.

Not sure if you read an update about this 70 year old scientist. He has a very worrisome background.

Apparently, since being released from prison, he is now a faculty memeber at Alfaisal University located in Domica, which is a Saudi University.
