A teenage boy found dead inside a hidden compartment of an Air Force plane after its return to Ramstein Air Base in Germany from a mission across northern Africa likely suffocated because of a lack of oxygen at high altitude, according to an autopsy performed Wednesday.

If a kid can get in the wheel well, so can a bomb.
(Too bad about the kid and all....)
That’s MY first impression... our C-130s aren’t any more secure than that?
Sounds more like a kid who read about the OBAMA AMNESTY PROGRAM.
Maybe he was just a “dreamer” trying to get in the welfare line. It’s a humanitarian crisis and Obama needs to send officials to give asylum to everyone in Mali so that they can come and vote Democrat.
That said, wow, that was poor security for a military aircraft, especially in a place like Mali. They were very lucky someone with a bomb didn’t notice that gaping security hole.
Hey, this is the new SOCIAL ACTION Air Force, run by a strong [unqualified bitchy] woman Sec of AF and staffed by 0bama's finest left wing fudge packers, where only politically correct thoughts are allowed and above all, no CHRISTIANITY and NO BIBLES! Understand? How would you expect them to take time away from that critical mission to do menial tasks like security? /sarc
It’s for the children. An act of love.
Maybe the bomb fell out.
“Maybe the bomb fell out. “
Yeah, don’t have him just hold it, you gotta put it in a vest or something. Doesn’t Hamas have a manual for this type of thing?
What is the survival time for ebola in a corpse, and what would be the effect of an uncontrolled outbreak at Ramstein AB - USAFE Headquarters?
Read ? L O L
Yeah, dont have him just hold it, you gotta put it in a vest or something. Doesnt Hamas have a manual for this type of thing?
Check his underwear.
Or a kid with bomb and ebola.
Who the hell was running security?
After you fire him, then figure out who the hell did the pre-flight check and fire him.
ok, maybe not ‘read’, but heard it.
