What a waste of precious resources. They look for "things" that may or may not be harmful. Did we forget the the 9/11 hijackers used box-cutters? Anything could be a weapon, in the hands of trained individuals.

Instead, they should be looking for terrorists, but the politically-correct bureaucracy instead looks for things.

It could also be that terrorists are doing this to learn about ways to get around TSA. If they're caught they go free. If they aren't, they learned something.
