If you travel internationally, expect some static in DC today, as a major terrorist plot was disrupted that planned multiple bomb attacks on US-UK flights. WTOP reports that the security lines at Dulles are incredibly long today as a result of the elevation of the security level at airports in response to this threat.
The TSA has also issued a Threat Level Change that prohibits liquids or gels of any kind in carryon luggage. Forget taking your soda on the plane with you. Forget packing your own shampoo. Forget carrying hand lotion. Hell, forget even toothpaste because it might target you for an extra special cavity search.
Yes, thanks to terrorists, flying is going to suck for quite a bit longer now. Thanks, assholes.
