According to this article at the WSJ blog, the TSA is “testing” X-ray machine software that “…can detect liquid materials used in bomb-making…”
The Transportation Security Administration will likely relax the restrictions on carrying liquids through airport security screening checkpoints in a year, TSA Chief Kip Hawley said in an interview.
“I think realistically in one year we, the TSA and foreign colleagues, will be a position” to relax liquids restrictions,” Hawley told the Middle Seat Thursday. “We are within a year of having the ability to differentiate threat liquids through the screening process.”
Given the TSA’s abysmal track record, I’m not holding my breath.
