If this is AQ, there will be others - they never seem to do these things singly.

Why did they let him in?

The date is 10-01 ... a somewhat memorable date, which might be relevant considering past choices of dates by terrorists.

What is significant about 10-01? The popular Hall & Oates song?

Clearly Europe needs better explosives regulation. Austria should likewise pull out of Iraq.

...and more mosques should be built.

Oh, and girls should be forbidden from going to school or showing their faces in public.

Come on Europe, it’s the only way!

It makes no sense to me. He got past security, went into the embassy with a bomb and then came outside and put it in the street?

I wonder if there is any significance to Vienna.
On September 11, 1683, the Viennese drove a Muslim army out of Austria and back to the middle east.

My post was a question....from the article.

msnbc and some european newspapers tell otherwise . when he entered the embassy and the metal detectors triggered he fled and while he was doing so he dropped the bag on the street.

On September 11, 1683, the Viennese drove a Muslim army out of Austria and back to the middle east.

Only partly were "viennese" involsed in this famous battle.

First as to who fought the Muslim Turks

King Jan III Sobieski of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had been made Commander in Chief of
his own 30,000-man Polish forces (Lithuanians did not take part in the battle),
18,500 Austrian troops led by Charles V, Duke of Lorraine,
19,000 Franconian, Swabian and Bavarian troops led by Prince Georg Friedrich of Waldeck,
9,000 Saxon troops led by John George III, Elector of Saxony.

Second they were driven not back to the middle east but back to the Balkans where they stayed for several hundreds more years...raping pillaging, forcefully converting etc. until the first war of independence against them by the Greeks in 1821.

And by the way the Muslim Turks are trying to get back into the European Union today..hopefully they will not.

Austrian and German news sites are reporting that a second person, known to the initial suspect, has also now been arrested.

The suspect had tried to enter the US embassy, but then fled into the street when the metal detector at the entrance went off.

Austrian police say the 42-year-old Bosnian suspect in custody appeared confused and was not talking much.

Article just says he visited the embassy - didn’t say he was inside it. Probably just checking for a place to leave the backpack. Sounds like he got spooked and/or chickened out.
