Bomb Found On Iraq Flight

Wed Nov 24, 2004 5:53 pm

From Airwise: http://news.airwise.com/stories/2004/11/1101205784.html

The improvised device was found on Monday, a spokeswoman said. She declined to give further details but said security arrangements were tightened at Baghdad International Airport.

You'd think in Baghdad of all places Security would be tighter!

I suppose an inside job would the easiest answer. Would make the most sence too.

Which airline? And, how in heck could that happen? Makes it scary enough to have to go there without that kind of stuff going on. Maybe the airport security contractor is one of those which used to operate in the states pre TSA, using morons who should have been flipping burgers.
