"BOSTON (AP) - A preliminary test found explosives in the sneakers of a passenger whose attempt to detonate the substance forced a Miami-bound airliner to be diverted to Boston under fighter jet escort."

...

"Several passengers said Saturday's flight was routine for the first two or three hours, but then some smelled something burning - perhaps matches, perhaps plastic. Since smoking was prohibited on the flight, an attendant went to investigate.

Passengers said the female flight attendant, whose name was not immediately released, jumped on Raja and screamed, ``He bit me! He bit me!''

"Four men pounced on Raja, passengers said, and wrestled burning materials from his hand. The men held Raja while other passengers handed over belts to tie him.

Some passengers described the rest of the flight as tense. Some people laughed at the movie, the comedy ``Legally Blonde,'' but some wondered if there were accomplices.

``Some thought this was a terrorist attack,'' said Geoffrey Bessin, a New York-born software designer who lives in France. ``A lot of others thought it was taken care of, and nothing bad happened, so let's go back to our movie.''"

Umm... what the fuck? Is it just me or is there something sorely wrong with this picture?

comming from http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/12/23/plane.investigation/index.html:

James said that when the man was being restrained, he uttered the words in English: "You'll see. You'll all see."

With law enforcement boarding the plane upon landing, the man said: "It will happen the way it's supposed to happen. The way it was written to happen."


I just saw the picture of him, dude looks evil.

I doubt it even was C4 as the media is claiming.

Now they're making passengers take off their shoes when going through checkpoints. GREAT.

if they don't do something about the security, sooner or later one will blow up. This seriously doesn't look like it's about to die out.

You can try to blow up C4 with a match as long as it takes an American to recognise irony trust me , it won't happen

From what I hear he was trying to use the match to light the detonator, and that doesn't make much fucking sense either really.

If it were a genuine terrorist them shoes woulda gone off, so I guess we should thank our lucky stars this guy was a fuckwit. =)

...as it takes an American...

As Rub would say, damn this world. Loosen up. The revolution ended over 200 years ago, and you Brits are still bitter about it. If it makes you feel any better Fods, I'm proud to be mostly British :)

on the site I linked to above said that it wasn't C4.

Precisely. The TV media is bullshitting right now (at least in my area).

You can't detonate C4 with just a match. Charlie-Four is one of the most stable explosives in existance. You can light it on fire, it won't go off. You can step on it, it won't go off. But do not step on it if it's on fire...

Ironicaly, Nikes were made by child labor in 3rd world countries at a nickel a piece. If this idiot was trying to fight American opression, he was taking the wrong aproach. :P

And in a case of double Irony, 'Everything Counts' just started playing on Winamp when I began writing this.
