This is a breaking story, and I can’t even get a confirmed name for the guy, much less which university is lucky enough to have him on its botany faculty, but what we have so far is that an Egyptian-American professor sailed through security at JFK with “six metal boxes containing two 9mm pistols, 250 bullets, two swords, and 11 daggers,” only to be stopped by security at Cairo.

His name is Mohamed Ibrahim Khalf, or Mohammed Ibrahim Marei, or something.

I’m sure I’ll be updating this.
