    Christmas Bomb Attempt + Honey Inci

    Christmas Bombing + Honey Incident (no quotes yet)

    On Christmas day, on flight 253, passengers were making them selves comfy while anticipating a long flight home. Little did they know, their happiness was soon to be ended by al Qaeda member Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab. During the flight passengers heard a loud “bang” followed by the terrifying sight of the man on fire. Apparently, the man attempted to set of the bomb. Luckily the detonator was defective and the lives of the passengers were saved.
    Passengers and crew members quickly acted and were also able to append the man. Now with the plane in safety, questions are sparked. How did he manage to get the bomb on board? What’s wrong with airport security? To answer these questions and to put passenger’s minds at ease, American airports have lately tightened security. However, this scare may have led some airports to become a little… paranoid.
    In California, a whole airport was shut down due to two “suspicious” articles of luggage. The first belonged to Francisco Ramirez. When wiped down, traces of TNT were detected. Further test revealed that what occurred to be another terrorist attempt, deemed to only be bottles of harmless honey. What could have been a harmless confiscation, was turned into a full out shutdown. Many could say that these measures were reasonable, but the other “suspicious” bag may not be.
    As passengers tediously waited for their luggage to arrive from the carrousel, hounds raced on the scene with bomb squad following behind, apparently on a scent. The culprit, a harmless “marker bag”, used to indicate that all bags have been unloaded from the airplane. After a close examination the bag was indeed…harmless. One possible explanation of this is the over working of the dogs. Ever since the Christmas incident, dogs have been working around the clock. Those tired honkers may have just needed a break. As authorities scratch their head, some people can’t help but to feel angry. However, we can’t blame the people, they are only doing what they do for our safety and we need to appreciate it.

    Christmas Bombing + Honey Incident

    On Christmas Day, on flight 253, passengers flying from Amsterdam to Detroit were waiting for the plane to arrive at their destination. At first, nothing seemed awry and no one paid special attention to a 23 year old Nigerian man onboard. Little did they know, this man was more than he appeared to be. During the flight, passengers heard a loud “bang” followed by the terrifying sight of the man on fire. Apparently, this man attempted to set off a bomb. Luckily the detonator was defective and the lives of the passengers were saved. This man was later identified as Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab. It was also confirmed that he had ties to the al Qaeda.
    Passengers and crew members quickly acted and were also able to append the man. Now with the plane in safety, questions are sparked. How did he manage to get the bomb on board? What’s wrong with airport security? The secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano believes he was able to get on the plane due to the “lack of timely action taken beforehand by intellegence agencies…that received reliable information months before… that a Nigerian was in Yemen…being trained to carry out an assault.” To answer these questions and to put passengers’ minds at ease, American airports have lately tightened security. However, this scare may have led some airports to become a little… paranoid. While fearing a another attack, airports have buckled security, but in turn caused problems.
    In California, an entire airport was shut down due to two “suspicious” articles of luggage. The first belonged to Francisco Ramirez. When wiped down, traces of TNT were detected. Further testing revealed that what appeared to be another terrorist attempt, were only bottles of harmless honey. What could have been a harmless confiscation was turned into a shutdown. Instead of further examining the bags contents, airport security might have jumped to conclusions and thought of it as another attack. Many could say that these measures were reasonable, but the other bag had no excuse.

    Now weeks after the attempted bombing, we can’t to fear this was an omen of bad security and more terror to come. Only time could tell is America will ever be a safe place again? For now we can only hope and trust that our security does their jobs.
