Underwear Bomber's Misguided Tribute is Bottom Drawer

Suicide bombing is not only cowardly, cruel and demented, but now also pathetic.

Best-Selling Suspense-Mystery Thriller ARCHANGEL
PRLog - May 8, 2012 - The CIA has announced that a fresh suicide bomb plot by al-Qaida's Yemen affiliate was foiled last week. The plot had intended to take down an American-bound airliner to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death. Curiously, according to an Associated Press report released yesterday, the method chosen by the bomber to pay homage to bin Laden's inglorious eminence was an underwear bomb.

Obama's White House quickly released an informal statement stating, "We had no specific, credible information about active terrorist plots timed to coincide with the anniversary [of the terrorist's death] and reiterate that this device never represented a threat to the public."

According to Associated Press reports, the CIA seized the explosive, a version of the device used in the failed Christmas 2009 plan to bring down a commercial plane over Detroit. The new device, however, had certain improvements--it contained no metal, in hopes that airport metal detectors would be fooled. Whether new, controversial full-body scanners would have identified it is still unclear, and FBI officials are investigating that point as well as whether it could have actually brought down an aircraft.  The FBI has categorized the bomb as an "improvised explosive device," referring to a general class of roadside booby-trap devices used to hinder troops in the Middle East.

The bomb was seized by the CIA before the bomber had even chosen a target or acquired a plane ticket. No specific details on how or where the seizure occurred was available at press time.

If it can be said that a man is defined by the dignity of the gestures made in his honor, perhaps an underwear device qualifies as a fitting statement in this case.
