BREAKING: LIQUID CHEMICALS FOUND ON PAKISTANI WOMAN AT US AIRPORT

LGF.

The Transportation Security Administration reports that a passenger’s water bottle screened positive for an explosive material around 9:15 this morning. A second test was confirmed at 11:25.

NBC News reports that federal screeners found four containers of liquids inside a woman’s carry-on bag during the screening process this morning. Larry Salyers, Tri-State Airport Director, tells WSAZ the woman is of Pakistani origin, lived in Jackson, Michigan and most recently lived in the Huntington area. She is being detained for questioning.

FBI officials are on scene.

It's at Wayne County, West Virginia. (Thanks to Rusty for the heads up on that.)

Good God.

Thanks to Eric, who "questions the timing," and wonders why the government is so determined to gaslight poor Andrew Sullivan with all this "evidence."

RELATED: WOMAN WHO CAUSED YESTERDAY'S PLANE DIVERSION (a different incident) A "PEACE ACTIVIST" WHO'D RECENTLY VISITED PAKISTAN: But of course she is, darling.

A woman on a trans-Atlantic flight diverted to Boston for security concerns passed several notes to crew members, urinated on the cabin floor and made comments the crew believed were references to Al Qaeda and the Sept. 11 attacks, according to an affidavit filed Thursday.

Catherine C. Mayo, 59, of Braintree, Vt., appeared in federal court Thursday on a charge of interfering with a flight crew on United 923 as it flew from London to Washington, D.C., Wednesday.

...

Her attorney, federal public defender Page Kelley, said Mayo was "just barely lucid" when they spoke. "She's got some very serious mental health problems."

Mayo's son, Josh, 31, described his mother as a peace activist and said she had been in Pakistan since March. She traveled there often since making a pen pal prior to Sept. 11, 2001, he said. The pen pal hasn't been allowed to visit the U.S., he added.

Well, the left chuckled about how seriously the right took this yesterday (although, actually, we were pretty guarded about it, as we usually are).

The woman is deranged, and probably is not Al Qaeda, but it's pretty obvious this was something very serious. The left, apparently, would have us allow mentally disturbed women fresh home from visiting a "pen pal" in Pakistan (not permitted to enter the US, for reasons I think are pretty obvious) babble about Al Qaeda and urinate on the cabin floor without paying her much mind, because we're, I guess, supposed to psychically determine she's actually just a mental patient, not a terrorist.

Although I do have to offer two words.

Dry.

Run.

Not endorsing that. Just "airing" it.

Thanks to David Gilles.
