Chertoff: Severe Disruptions for U.S. Air Travel; No Liquids

From the Homeland Security secretary:

"We believe that these arrests [in London] have significantly disrupted the threat, but we cannot be sure that the threat has been entirely eliminated or the plot completely thwarted... Currently, there is no indication ... of plotting within the United States."
"Due to the nature of the threat revealed by this investigation, we are prohibiting any liquids, including beverages, hair gels, and lotions from being carried on the airplane."
