So went the headline on Drudge. The article itself says:

Officials initially expressed concern after discovering that Besai’s house is located along a flight path for Newark Liberty International Airport. They later learned that used, inoperable AT-4 tubes are sold to the public through military surplus Web sites and other outlets.

It might as well have been used army boots – but the media had you thinking terrorism and downed planes, didn’t they! Gotcha!

Reporting like this is part of the reason why mass surveillance and national ID cards have currency in today’s political debate.
