Al-Qaeda airline bomb plot disrupted, U.S. says. Please give our anti-terror people the credit they deserve.

The CIA and overseas intelligence partners disrupted an al-Qaeda plot to
blow up civilian aircraft using an advanced explosive device designed
by the terrorist network’s affiliate in Yemen, U.S. officials said
Monday.

U.S. officials said the CIA and other agencies tracked the plot for
about a month before moving to seize the device in recent days in the
Middle East outside Yemen, where the bomb was built.

    I just wonder what exactly did Homeland security have to do with it? Were any of the new powers that were passed after 9/11 played a roll or would have existing procedures have worked?

    Thank you Lord for our intelligence community & international partners who work closely with them. Another one foiled before any damage could be done.

    I am glad they didn't assume that they caught all the dirty laundry on the plane in Detroit.

    sort of makes you wonder how the first one was so successful then, huh? I know I do.

    The first one (9/11) was so successful because it was the first hijacking involving suicide bombers. It is much more difficult to stop people who do not care about their own survival.

    well that is one theory anyway.
  • Savious Joe Shw... 2012/05/09 11:34:57

    Because they used box cutters not bombs.

    that falls within the above theory also.
