Cookie and Toy Cause Airport Shutdown
"Essentially what they did find was a child's toy and some organic material in a bag that turned out to be a cookie," Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Jennifer Peppin said. "Those two items combined on-screen, they very much appeared to be an IED, and it turned out not to be." The terminal was reopened about 9:20 a.m. and passengers were allowed back in, Peppin said. Five commuter flights to Los Angeles and one flight to Salt Lake City were delayed, said Steve Shultz, an airport spokesman.
Those damned Al Quaida are a sneaky bunch. Next thing you know, suicide bombers will be selling exploding Girl Scout cookies door to door.
