Cleveland Airport Confiscates Passenger’s ‘Dangerous Liquid’ Pies

A Cleveland airport considers pie filling a dangerous liquid, while at JFK the pie loses its incendiary properties. TSA employees seized at least a dozen of the baked goods from travelers.

Cleveland’s Hopkin International Airport considers pie filling a dangerous gel/liquid and TSA employees seized at least a dozen of the baked goods last week before Thanksgiving.

The pies were donated to the airport’s USO lounge, which caters to traveling soldiers.

Security analysts frequently criticize the TSA’s for a lack of imagination in dealing with terrorism. It’s nice to see them take so seriously a pie in the sky threat. — BEN POPKEN
