Lazy?! I doubt it. Deliberately obfuscatory more like it. Announcement of the lighter-ban lift was broadcast far and wide by the TSA's public disinformation machine -- c'mon, it was top story on NBC's Nightly News the very same day!!!

No, if they really wanted this know "for our safety and protection," they would have set off the klaxons.

This simply and absolutely stinks of asinine maneuvering.
