ABC News: Photo of Failed Bomber’s Potentially Explosive Underwear
ABC News has posted this photo of the potentially explosive underwear worn by alleged Northwest 253 bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. As is well-known by now, it failed to go off, otherwise it could have been the first catastrophic crotch crash. The troubling thought: a harbinger of future air catastrophes? Meanwhile, from now on if a guy in a pickup bar says he has dynamite between his legs it’ll mean it’s time to call security.
Meanwhile, Al Qaeda’s Yemen affiliate is taking credit for the bombing attempt.
