FBI looks into lasers (but not directly)

According to an article from the International Herald Tribune, the FBI is looking into the possibility that terrorists are working on taking down US aircraft using lasers--by aiming them at pilot's eyes.

There are reports of ten or so incidents since Christmas of this year in which pilots have reported having lasers stray into the censoredpit. It's not a strange occurrence, except for the frequency. The article cites a statistic that hundreds of cases have been reported in the last decade, including some where the pilot's have sustained damage to their eyes.
