A similar situation happened in 2010 to a breastfeeding mom from Arizona named Stacey Armato. In Stacey's case, not only did she know the TSA rules about transporting her breastmilk, but she also brought a printed copy of them with her to show the TSA agents - and they STILL treated her like a security risk and a second class citizen. TSA later apologized to Stacey, but in an interview she gave, she explains that it was pretty much evident that any staff retraining which may have taken place didn`t "stick."

Smutleybutt & drworm2002: I did some quick research, and you're right, she was on business in Hawaii (and just going between islands, she lives there). BUT- I still view flying as a very special privilege (even if it`s required for your job) that comes with some sacrifices in order to maintain (or try to maintain) safety. Sure- the system isn`t that great, but it`s better than nothing.
Bottom line: I just don`t feel THAT bad for her. Sh*t happens at airports, man. Get out yo pump and deal wit it.

@Draculya: "Request half and half." My first true LOL of the day.
@AJ: I think you get this, but I believe what Lillian's saying is that Al Qaeda isn`t a *synonym* for "terrorists," it`s a *subset*. Meaning that while all members of Al Qaeda are terrorists (either by actual practice or support of terrorist practices), not all terrorists are members of Al Qaeda.
Lillian`s kinda hot when she gets all logical. =^.^=
