I don't care if liberal families get stabbed on planes, doesn't bother me.

""It is the judgment of many security experts worldwide, which I agree with, that a small pocket knife is simply not going to result in the catastrophic failure of an aircraft, and an improvised explosive device will," Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole told a subcommittee of the House Homeland Security Committee.

"And we know, from internal covert testing, searching for these items, which will not blow up an aircraft, can distract our officers from focusing on the components of an improvised explosive device," he said."

Funny, how twisting an official report makes you feel "manly", when you're a cowering little cretin. LMAOROFU~!

The rule will change back after the first flight attendant is carved up.

Of course MAYBE someone in the cockpit will be armed and be able to shoot the attacker(s). Hopefully without depresserizing the cabin.

Now, KING 5 News has learned that the first flight test to verify the system is expected to take off from Everett's Paine Field on Tuesday, followed by an official flight test for the FAA to demonstrate the system's performance.

The airplane being used for flight testing is built for LOT Polish Airlines, which as the first operator of the Dreamliner in Europe. LOT was hoping the plane would lead the carrier into a position of profitability.

LOT suffered embarrassment at Chicago's O'Hare airport on the night of the grounding as the airline was celebrating the start of Dreamliner service between Chicago and Warsaw. The inbound 787 from Warsaw never made the return flight and is still stuck at the airport two months later. The carrier says it's using leased Boeing 767s in the meantime.

Boeing says it plans to wrap up ground and flight tests by no later than the end of March, and then it's up to the FAA to certify the plane is again safe to fly, or request further changes and testing.

"I think by June we should be in good shape," said Michel Merluzeau, the managing partner and analyst for G2 Solutions in Kirkland.

You're a phocking idiot. LOT airlines has nothing to do with whether or not the TSA decides to allow passengers boarding flights in the U.S. to carry small pocket knives on board.
