More Homeland Insecurity fallout from the case of Nathaniel Heatwole, who carried box cutters onto two planes, undetected. Says Markey:
The Bush administration can't, on the one hand, say that this young man committed a very serious crime and then at the same time say that they didn't respond to the e-mail at the Department of Homeland Security because it wasn't an imminent threat. They can't have it both ways. Either the young man did something that was very serious, or he didn't.
