Liquid explosives found on woman at regional airport in West Virginia. The woman is an American citizen of Pakistani heritage.
But I feel much safer now that national security decisions have devolved to U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor. Much safer.
The Transportation Security Administration reports that a passenger's water bottle screened positive for an explosive material around 9:15 this morning. A second test was confirmed at 11:25. TSA is waiting for further testing to determine the exact substance.
NBC News reports that federal screeners found four containers of liquids inside a woman's carry-on bag during the screening process this morning. Larry Salyers, Tri-State Airport Director, tells WSAZ the woman is of Pakistani origin, lived in Jackson, Michigan and most recently lived in the Huntington area. She is being detained for questioning.
