"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Nothing new about this.  Cops have been using 9/11 as a weapon against all kinds of photographers since 9-12-01.  Run across some fascist cop/TSA/rent-a-cop at an airport who is on a power trip, and they'll go nuts if they see you with a camera taking pictures.

I know numerous photographers who have been detained and arrested (always freed later) for taking pictures of airplanes.  One even had his jaw broken by some Chicago cops for taking pictures from private property near O'Hare.  I myself got detained by a national guardsman and held at gunpoint by his M-16 in 2002.

For the record, there is no federal law or regulation of taking pictures at or near airports, except for the TSA regulation against taking pictures of the security checkpoints.  However, there are some local laws which prohibit it depending on the location.

Apparently being a Christian, being a military veteran, believing in the Constitution, and being patriotic are "suspicious since 9/11.  Or maybe that is from the day Obama was sworn in as POTUS.
