    Exclamation What was this guy thinking?

    Ran across this while I was surfing...What in the world would make you do something like this?


    WAS IT A POSSIBLE ACT OF TERRORISM, OR AN AIRPORT SECURITY TEST BY A WELL-MEANING SOLDIER? AUTHORITIES SAY THAT'S A CONSIDERATION AS THEY LOOK INTO A SECURITY BREACH AT TRI-CITIES REGIONAL AIRPORT FRIDAY. THAT'S WHEN A MAN WEARING A TRENCHCOAT AND TURBAN WAS PREPARING TO BOARD, WHEN SECURITY OFFICERS DISCOVERED AN ASSORTMENT OF KNIVES HIDDEN ON HIM. THE MAN IDENTIFIED HIMSELF AS A SERGEANT WITH THE TENNESSEE NATIONAL GUARD UNIT BASED IN KINGSPORT. NOW, THE FBI IS CONSULTING WITH THE U.S. ATTORNEY'S OFFICE, AND ARMY NATIONAL GUARD SPOKESMAN DEAN DUKE SAYS THE MILITARY IS WAITING TO SEE WHAT COMES OF IT ALL...

    Sorry for the caps...I cut and pasted, and the story was in caps, and I'm too lazy to change it all...lol.
