What's next? Strip searches?

Apparently, the new rules are only for flights coming into the US from another country. Still... 1) That's a hell of a first impression for visitors to the country, and 2) it does a lot to deter US citizens from international travel, if they're going to be treated like criminals on the way back. Hopefully, these will be relaxed sometime soon, as (like half of the other terrorism-related TSA regulations) their effectiveness at anything other than pissing people off will likely be marginal at best.

[Update @ 12/30]

Looks like the overly restrictive restrictions were only temporary. Good.
