More airport security insanity: When a New York woman tried to board an airplane at JFK airport in NYC, the security guard found 3 feeding bottles of breast milk in her bag. The security guard forced her to drink a sample of breast milk from each bottle to prove that it wasn't a dangerous substance, refusing to allow her on board until she did so. Given that the US Transportation Security Administration has specifically stated that passengers can not be required to drink liquids before being allowed on a plane, she may have grounds for a lawsuit.
