TSA Buffoonery

Reuters has a hilarious story about the TSA's mistaking bottles of honey for bombs. But the best part of the story is that " two of the screeners smelled a strong chemical odor, complained of nausea and were rushed to a local hospital, where they treated and released."

That's right--two TSA screeners opened the bottles of honey and complained of nausea and actually went to the hospital to be treated. Somehow the honey tested positive for exploses called "
TNT and TATP." Is the TSA completely inept?

Reuters also reports "was shut down and evacuated for hours and flights diverted after the incident."

Pure idiocy.
