Posttraumatic Stress, my a**...

A report out of Memphis details the arrest of Lewellyn Muhammad, who tried to board a flight carrying a book, in which a Transportation Security Administration screener found razor blades and a note containing a date, and the name "Osama Bin Laden." The accused is on leave from work at FedEx....and this excuse really takes the cake:
His employer advised that approximately two weeks ago, Mr. Muhammad requested leave to deal with posttraumatic stress. Muhammad asked to leave because he needed to deal with severe anger issues. Mr. Muhammad told investigators that his posttraumatic stress condition has recently been aggravated by the Iraq prison scandal.
Riiiight.
