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."

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.
