I went through security with no problems. So I assume this is fine with most security checks. The airport was HAJ - Hannover, Germany.

Just as an example (or rather, a counter-example), Air France allow premium class passengers to have two carry-ons and one personal item. There is no mention of exceptions to or from the US. There are probably many other such examples.

The contents of an FAA "Approved Carry-on Baggage Program" are described in this FAA document. Section 4 of this document requires, among other provisions, that carry-on egress from the aircraft not be impaired, that what a passenger can (and cannot) carry on board be specified, and that weight limits of luggage storage locations be observed.

For personal items, the published is 9"x10"x17" where the actual sizer dimensions are 9"x11"x18". However an airline knows ...

You are absolutely required to have your passport with you and highly recommended to have your valuables with you, plus medicines and other essentials, so it is normal to use a carry-on or personal item (or both) to have these. Most laptops even fit in personal item sizes which are more restrictive ...
