They can not be serious.
Airline passengers soon may be able to board a plane without being asked whether they have kept a close watch on their bags. And starting right away, they can take drinks through security checkpoints.
I guess after failing to trip up a bunch of terrorists with those tricky interrogation techniques “Has anyone unknown to you asked you to carry an item on this flight?” and “Have any of the items you are traveling with been out of your immediate control since the time you packed them?”), they have now realized what the entire public has known since day one. These are needless hassles, not precautions. I guess mother’s will now be allowed to carry their breast milk through airports.
