US Government Thinks Wearing A Certain Casio Watch Is Evidence Of Terrorist Activity – WTF?

From Wikipedia –

According to The Guardian, “the Casio F-91W digital watch was declared to be ‘the sign of al-Qaida’ and a contributing factor to continued detention of prisoners by the analysts stationed at Guantánamo Bay.

TSA Has No Shortage of Stupid

New U.S. Transportation Security Administration rules also prohibit passengers from getting anything from their carry-on bags or having anything in their laps in the final hour of flight, the agency said.

Luckily Islam’s best and brightest are even more incompetent than the TSA.
