WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – Noted author and atheist Richard Dawkins tweeted his outrage after having to throw away a jar of honey before boarding a plane.

He took to social media to complain that “Bin Laden has won” after enduring this sticky situation.

It’s not clear why his honey was confiscated, nor did he state which airport he was at.

TSA rules state that any liquids taken in carry-on luggage must be in containers of 3 ounces or less.

After his tweet went viral, with many claiming he was making much ado about nothing, Dawkins responded that it wasn’t the honey that got him buzzing.

In followup tweets, Dawkins said he was venting his anger about blind adherence to arbitrary rules.

And forcing a slew of regulations that inconvenience people and limit freedoms, he argues, is why the terrorists have won.
