    This obvious stunt could be a decoy. This is what happened by the first world trade center bomb. A couple of guys tried to come into the country with obvious fake passports and there was a big deal made out of that. Meanwhile on the same plane, the real bombers made their way into the US with ease.

    1. This is a bit too obvious.

    2. Why would a terrorist take a pressure cooker on an airplane when they can innocently buy one when they arrive (perhaps along with a cookbook as cover)?

    3. Aren’t they going to require licenses for owning pressure cookers?
