    US bans most electronic devices, including cameras, on flights from eight countries

    https://www.dpreview.com/news/274829...ight-countries

    If you are planning to fly to the US from some Middle-Eastern and African countries and carry camera equipment or other electronics, you should probably have a closer look at the new rules put in place by the Trump Administration on Tuesday.

    Passengers departing from 10 airports in Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates won't be allowed to carry on electronic devices larger than a cellphone. This includes laptops, tablets and cameras.

    The new rules took effect at 3 a.m. E.D.T. on Tuesday, and must be followed within 96 hours by foreign airlines flying to the United States from the affected airports – but not US-carriers. It is currently unknown how long the ban will remain in place.

    According to Royal Jordanian airlines, medical items are exempt from the ban and banned electronic items can still be transported in checked baggage. Officials estimate that overall 50 daily flights to the US will be affected. Homeland Security says the ban is not based on a threat of an imminent attack.

    I always want to keep all my electronics with me in my carry-on. Don't want them damaged/ lost/ or stolen if they are checked.

    Better to err on the side of caution.
    Looking at history of threat risk and 9/11 investigations findings, best to transform US into same kind of security centric Police State that Isreal is as long as US is entangled financially and militarily with Israel's role in occupation of Palestinians.

    Checking in for a flight has never been the same since 1967

    9/11 was to punish U.S. for Israel policy: Philip Zelikow 9/11 Commission Exec. Dir.

    Rather strange order. One would think it is bomb/terrorism related but I never take their justifications at face value. If it was terrorism concerns, why isn't Syria, Yemen or other hotspots included? Morocco but not Yemen? What other reasons could electronics be banned from incoming flights from only a few countries?

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.
