What I wonder is what they mean about “what if one of them seem odd?”.
People define “odd” differently.
It seems to me as if they only create hysteria over nothing and a lot more phone calls coming in from people who take this too seriously.
I mean, honestly, what tourist doesn’t seem “odd”? haha

You don’t stop terrorism with this kind of propaganda. Never have, never will.
