The details: "All travelers flying into the U.S. from foreign countries will receive tightened random screening, and 100 percent of passengers from 14 terrorism-prone countries will be patted down and have their carry-ons searched, the Obama administration was notifying airlines on Sunday."

The citizenry affected: "All passengers from countries on the State Department’s “State Sponsors of Terrorism” list – plus all passengers from other "countries of interest" such as Nigeria, Pakistan and Yemen — will receive “full body pat-down and physical inspection of property,” the official said.

"The countries on the State Department list are Cuban, Iran, Sudan and Syria. Other countries covered by the TSA directive include Afghanistan, Libya and Somalia. A complete list was not released."


Oh Joy of Joys! I am flying to Brussels soon. That means I'm also returning from Brussels soon. I am not on a list to receive the special up close and personal inspection, but I'm pretty sure there will not be a special line for the peeps from apparently unlawed countries.

That means we'll all be in the same line, waiting, standing, tendonitis aflame, back spasms going, and tempers on nuclear holocaust.

This is gonna be such fun.
