Returning from Rome to the US Re: [xmca] ISCAR

A little advisory based on my experience 2 years ago:

There's a terror alert in the US now based on "credible but unconfirmed" information for the period around the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

In 2009 I had not thought about the coincidence of dates when I booked my return from Cape Town on a flight to Washington's Dulles airport that departed Johannesburg on Sept 10 and then departed Dakar after refueling on September 11.

There was no alert then, but I assume it was because of the date that there were tons of extra security procedures both in Johannesburg and in Dakar.

So ... I would just suggest being prepared for things to take more time than usual, and not packing anything that could trigger any kind of suspicion.

just sayin ...
