If they were going to blow up these planes, they would have blown them up in the skies over the cities to inflict maximum casualties.

I think it’s a diversion, also.

I also think these four shootings at the Pentagon, Marine Museum and recruiting stations might have been some sort of “go” order.

And isn’t it convenient that Sheik Obama is going to be out of the country for a while, along with his immediate family.

Yep. And Hillary has already fled. She must have caught a whiff.

BBC chimes in with clearer information....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-11654481

Two East Midlands Airport alerts over suspect itemParts of East Midlands Airport have been sealed off twice following the discovery of a suspicious package.

Emergency services were called to the Donington site at about 0330 BST and evacuated a distribution centre.

The area was reopened just before 1000 BST but a cordon was re-imposed just before 1400 BST so the package could be re-examined “as a precaution”.

Airport authorities said public areas had continued to operate throughout the incident.

A police spokesman said: “The package is being re-examined as a precaution and as such the cordons that were originally put in place have been reinstated as a precaution.

“This has meant that a freight distribution building and a number of offices have been closed together with internal airport roads - Beverley Road and Argosy Road.”

Emergency services have not given details of why the package was re-examined after being declared safe.

"Why the hell are we allowing planes from Yemen to land in the US?"

We don't.

Most UPS planes fly through a central-hub, probably Europe in this case.

It’s the possible radiological and/or biological material that scares the hell out of me.

Prayers up!

It won’t help the Dems. But if the attack is bad enough and widespread enough, the elections will be postponed.

The REST OF THE ARTICLE...

Those people tested negative for hazardous materials.

The plane at Newark has not been identified.

Officials say they are taking these precautions due to an incident that happened overnight. A cargo flight flying from Yemen to Chicago, stopping at London, was checked when it landed and crews found a toner cartridge that had been tampered with and changed, but tested negative for explosive materials. Now they are taking no chances and are looking at similar cargo flights, especially those coming from Yemen into the United States.

“A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said officials found something suspicious on a cargo plane in Birmingham, England. But test results for explosives were negative.”

That’s good, and lends to the theory this may have been a diversion, or just somebody doing a shoddy job of re-manufacturing toner cartridges.

Is there a law giving the Federal govt the right to suspend elections?

UPS package tracker was down yesterday when I attempted to track a shipment ... perhaps a coincidence.
