Prior to 9/11 you could not take a knife on board an airplane that had a blade that was longer than three inches.

Then, for a while, NO knives were allowed.

NOW, you can take a knife that has a blade that is shorter than FOUR inches!

Does this make ANY sense?!

The 9/11 hijackers used retractable-blade box-cutters whose breakaway blades could be considered as being under TWO inches long under current TSA regulations!
