John Kelly Laptop Ban – CWEB.com
The United States might ban laptops from aircraft cabins of all flights into and out of the country, John Kelly, Secretary of Homeland Security, said on Sunday.
Stressing the potential dangers of airborne terrorist acts utilizing in-flight electronics, Kelly said deliberations over whether to impose such a ban are ongoing.
“That means any electronic device larger than a cell phone would not be allowed on flights leaving the US, not just certain inbound US flights, as is currently the case. While Kelly didn’t say it outright, “we could read between the lines,” the aide said.”
