Dynamite on a flight, no big deal

Bush's Homeland Security at its usual efficiency:

A stick of dynamite was found in a college student's checked luggage on a Continental Airlines flight from Argentina, authorities said, in one of six security incidents Friday affecting U.S. flights.

Federal authorities were investigating why the student, who got off the Continental plane in Houston before it continued to Newark, N.J., had the explosive, FBI spokeswoman Shauna Dunlap said. She said the student did not appear to be connected to terrorism.

Houston Fire Department Assistant Chief Omero Longoria said the man told authorities he works in mining and often handles explosives. Longoria said federal officials were investigating whether the explanation was true.
Ya think? A stick of dynamite and you don't think the kid was connected to terrorism? Unless this kid just came out of a cave, no one is going to put a stick of dynamite in their luggage unless they want to kill a lot of people, or they're a fool who deserves a little jail time. We're putting Muslims in prison for 5 years with no trial and no attorney for no good reason, and the dynamite kid is okay? Are these people for real?

Oh, it gets better:
In Buenos Aires, Marcelo Sain, head of Argentina's Airport Security Police, told local TV that authorities found "a Coca Cola bottle with mud, and inside it was a tube with ammonium nitrate, a little bit of dynamite and a detonator."

Mark Mancuso, deputy director for public safety at Houston airports, said the man told authorities the items were souvenirs purchased at a mine in Bolivia.
Right, because they were all out of dirty-bomb souvenirs.
