william points us to a Gizmodo post highlighting a TSA poster that appears to be suggesting that people photographing airplanes at airports somehow have nefarious intentions:
This really does seem bizarre. Is it really so evil to take photos of airplanes? Now, some might point out that they're just asking people to be "vigilant" (which is misleading anyway), but how does it help to suggest vigilance should be targeted at people doing an activity which is legal? It's the equivalent of crying wolf, and that doesn't help anyone.
