I hate to be the one to say it, but that's what I call "thinking outside the box..."

(or maybe INside the box...)

Can't wait to see how the TSA is going to play this one...

So... what's to stop a terrorist from shipping himself in a crate or ship container in order to get into the US?

What a strange coincidence... The ad on that page when I read it earlier was for DHL/Airborne Express! There is a marketing genius at work there!

If he brought his own food, it was probably better than that being served in a pax cabin. Smart

Okay, obviously what this guy did was insane and he's lucky he didn't die. But was what he did actually illegal? I mean, a $500+ shipping charge was paid, so it's not like he was a "stowaway" who flew for free.

Certainly, though, this shows that we need to take more steps to ensure that we know what's being shipped onto planes. If it's that easy to ship a person, it couldn't be too much more difficult to ship a bomb.
