How fortunate that the authorities got the guy on the plane who had explosives on board. He was planning to blow up the American plane just before it was due to land. I must say that something is drastically lacking in the security for airports overseas especially. This guy was on some list as a terrorist suspect yet he managed to get a visa from the USA .. then got a ticket .. no return... had no luggage .. and even his father had contacted the powers that be telling them of his radical views and his worry about what he might do. Thank goodness they got this one in time .... hundreds of people would have died. I sure do hope 2010 is a better year than 2009 seems to have been.
