This wasn't an attempt to bring anything on the plane, but it was monumentally stupid. From the TSA blog: "A family member escorting a passenger at Phoenix (PHX) approached and Officer and stated 'I am a former Al Qaeda individual escorting a family member to her flight.'"

Safe to say the guy wasn't actually in al-Qaeda.
