I'm feeling a little dismayed at how none of this UPS bomber stuff makes any sense at all and yet our politicians are pumping up the BS rhetoric about the War on Terror.
If the bombs were meant to blow up the airplane, why address them to synagogues?
It's a simple question without a good answer.
This reuters article makes little sense, because of that fact the pompous politcal rhetoric of an Obama or a Cameron even less.
(Reuters) - Yemeni forces on Saturday arrested a woman believed to be involved in sending explosive packages bound for the United States that triggered a global security alert, Yemeni security officials said.
The arrest was the first in the case, in which two air freight packages containing bombs -- both sent from Yemen and addressed to synagogues in Chicago -- were intercepted in Britain and Dubai...
...Britain said the device found on a cargo plane at its East Midlands airport was big enough to down an aircraft.
"We believe the device was designed to go off on the aeroplane. We cannot be sure about the timing when that was meant to take place," Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters at Chequers, his country residence outside London.
Besides that, saying that the bomb on board could have brought down the plane seems ludicrous with the little smudge of white powder seen in pictures of the bomb. This material also tested negative for explosives in the first news reports which have since changed to "Explosives found in suspicious packages packed powerful punch."
Not to mention Yemen denies that the planes came from them.
