Authorities have charged a member of the U.S. military who was arrested after trying to go through a security checkpoint at a Texas airport with explosives in military-grade wrapping, the FBI said Sunday.

Trey Scott Atwater, 30, was stopped at security at the Midland International Airport about 9 a.m. Saturday. FBI spokesman Mike Martinez said Atwater is being held at the Midland County jail and has been charged with trying to bring explosives onto an airplane.

We the undersigned hereby petition the U.S. Justice Department to drop all charges against Sgt Atwater.

This Special forces Sgt made a honest mistake and does not need to face 10 years in jail. He has saved thousands of lives. According to the news media he has a silver star and been deployed to Iraq twice.

C-4 is harmless without a detonator. He was boarding with his wife. His intention was not a terrorist act.
