Kind of depressing that a flight attendant without shoes can outrun and evade security at LAX.

No flights from LAX to LGA. I guess they meant JFK. You have love NBC for their always accurate and well researched stories.

NSA phone records freely shared with law enforcement. No warrant needed anymore.

How does this happen under the nose of the TSA? AS a non-industry person, are not flight crews subject to MANDATORY inspections, not random checks? What is going on? 60 pounds of blow is a Death sentence for a lot of addicted Americans. But what if? 60 pounds of plastic explosive or two innocuous chemicals mixed in flight?
Scary stuff as a passenger who already feels like the 'SAFER THAN DRIVING" mystique is fading......

Interesting how 10 lbs. seem to have "vanished" between the two headlines...
