Possible Bomber caught at Toronto Airport

Posted on 04/20/2010 12:37:58 PM PDT by kajingawd

Can't find anything online about it, but was watching CBC news and they are reporting that an individual with batteries in his shoes and " shrapnel " were found on his body. The reporter said at around 9:15 this morning...i think.

On his body? Is he dead?

Man, if I could find them with the little wheels in 11 1/2, I'd be a happy guy.

Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Not sure if anyone else here was watching it live when i was, but they had to go to the “ reporter on the scene “ twice. He was about to explain what happened at the airport when he was suddenly cut off...TWICE.
So twice they go back to the person in the Studio, she apologizes and goes to other news. Commercial break and the person in the studio gives the same explanation as the story on cbc.ca . The reporter on the scene didn’t get a third try. Though he might have now.
I took the time to come down to computer and see if it was mentioned anywhere, so i came here and put the link up when i found it.

When dirty moslems are caught in Canada, how does Omoslem suppress the report?

Does he call Canada and say, “This is Omoslem, and the United States is ordering you to suppress the investigation?”

It could be solely in the interest of the economy that most governments want to hush all these reports, regardless of what country. Bury reporters, six feet under if necessary.

“A traveller who stuffed his shoes with batteries and metal plates in a bid to appear taller put security officials on high alert at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport on Tuesday.

Shortly before 10 a.m. ET, a man travelling to Chicago was stopped by security.

It was the unusual contents of his shoes that set off alarm bells — specifically a series of concealed metal plates and batteries.

The man was detained, taken to a nearby police station and questioned for five hours. The incident drew the interest of Peel Regional Police, the RCMP and INSET, Canada’s integrated national security enforcement team.

But instead of concealing bomb-making equipment, the man was simply trying to appear taller, police eventually determined.

“If anything, it was a crime of vanity,” CBC’s John Lancaster reported. “He used a series of batteries and plates to make himself appear taller. Essentially, they were homemade lifts.”

The man was released without charges at 3:30 p.m. ET.

He boarded an afternoon flight to Chicago to connect with a flight to China.”
