The TSA has strict rules for "Known Shippers" sending out packages abaord airlines that originate here in the US, but not so much for shipments that originate outside of the US.

Those planes are full of Democrat absentee ballots. These planes have been quarantined so that the Philly unions can unload the crates of ballots out of sight of real Americans.

I’m sure there must be some French unions upset with UPS or the USA in general.

Those mostly apply to packages shipped on board commercial *passenger* aircraft, not cargo-only aircraft.

Wrong. NEST use to be TS-SCI or higher.

You can thank Clinton for declassifying/renaming NEST, and Bush for putting the spotlight on them with the .gov reshuffle of FEMA/TSA/DHS.

Need a job?

Makes you wonder if the Sept. 3 crash of a UPS plane in Dubai was an accident, or the first (successful) attempt getting through whatever UPS or cargo security layers are in place. Hmmm ...

Unfortunately, they might be military ballots that the dems don't want to make it to the precincts.

All-cargo carriers also have their own security plans, however, the TSA cannot control what's coming inbound to the USA aborad those planes.

This is their worst nightmare coming true...

The deployment, or non-deployment of NEST is classified Secret.

So, I guess we'll be able to read about it in the NY Times...

Rick Rescorla predicted the use of cargo planes a year before 9/11. He felt AQ would find it easier to take over a cargo jet and keep the fact hidden from authorities than taking a passenger jet.

With the security in place since 9/11 for airlines, I'd say AQ has discovered what Rescorla anticipated a decade ago.

"Makes you wonder if the Sept. 3 crash of a UPS plane in Dubai was an accident"

That crash was related to a shipment of lithium batteries that became over-heated, caught fire, and brought down the aircraft.

That's a different problem that the TSA is trying to resolve...

CNN : The suspicious package, which contained a “manipulated” toner cartridge, tested negative for explosive material, the source said, but it led to heightened inspection of arriving cargo flights in at least three cities — Newark, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennyslvania and a UPS truck in New York.

....

Tested negative for explosive material. Doesn’t sound like it was a bomb afterall. Could be all a false alarm...
