Authorities interviewed several passengers on the Spain-bound Delta flight, including an Argentinian woman and a Pakistani-American. Two suspicious wires found in one of the planes bathrooms could have linked a battery and an explosive.
Investigators have not ruled out the possibility someone was putting together an explosive device when wires were found about a Spain-bound Delta flight, forcing an emergency landing, a law enforcement official said Friday.
There is the possibility somebody was interrupted, the official said.
They also interviewed a Pakistani-born passenger who was believed to be the last person in the bathroom.
A U.S. citizen for 11 years, he denied any knowledge of the wires and was let go.

“Pakistani-born passenger who was believed to be the last person in the bathroom.”
No explosives found, no blasting caps. Sounds like wire terrorism!
Thinking themselves wise, the TSA become fools. That is the problem with reactive maintenance, when you worry about the symptom, (bombs), not the problem, (terrorists).
Might I suggest we stop searching grannys, and search everyone or no one. Israel searches with scanners, interviews with agents and racially and other ways profiles. Perhaps we should copy them, instead of rolling dice.
It sounds to me more like a spoof.
Wires? Only wires?
Solid or stranded? If solid, they might have something there. If stranded, someone’s earbuds or wired headset, likely failed and they tore ‘em up.
Just let the TSA test everybody's drinks that are bought beyond the security gate, and that will make us all safer.
The BATF used to bust people with fender washers and aluminum conduit, saying they had parts for a silencer.
If there were any 3-year-old girls or geriatric grannies on board, they clearly need to get equal treatment.
The terrorist have won. The new World Order has won. True Americans have lost because our liberty just went to hell.
“They also interviewed a Pakistani-born passenger who was believed to be the last person in the bathroom. A U.S. citizen for 11 years, he denied any knowledge of the wires...”
Well, of COURSE he denied!!! So they then let him go. Shame on them for profiling, anyway /sarc
Force eveyonen to eat a bacon sandwich before flight. No more problems...
Didn't the 9/11 Muzzies regularly hit strip clubs in Florida?
Suspicious wires? Were they wearing masks???
” Suspicious wires? Were they wearing masks???”
Have they even questioned the wires yet? Run some high voltage thru’em, they’ll tell ya everything.
Everybody’s suspiciously wired nowadays!
I’m not positive but most likely they’d get a negative response.
If they are going to question the Pakastani - they have to find 1 white haired granny to question too.
Totally Wired! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT-ZD5Q8G2w
Someone cut the red wire?
A couple of wires on the floor and the Government uses it to pump up fear, and justify the existence of the massive Federal Gestapo that is dedicated to one thing: taking away our freedom. This has nothing to do with aircraft safety or national security.
Probably one of the cheapest terrorist attacks to date. Caused the plane to turn around, be thoroughly searched, delayed and inconvenienced all the passengers, and zeroed out any credibility of the TSA. And some relatives and others wonder why I don’t fly.
I would assume everyone was searched before they were allowed off the plane or at least allowed to go on their way. No explosives, no bomb. Easy as that. A couple of wires does not make a bomb.
“Force eveyonen to eat a bacon sandwich before flight. No more problems...”
Beautiful; this really has potential. So simple yet so effective. And it costs a whole lot less time, money, and aggravation too.
Huebolt for Director of Homeland Security!
My guess is that some woman wearing an underwire bra got fed up with it riding up on her during long flights and ripped it out but missed the trash can in the bathroom.
The Pakistani-born passenger couldn’t have done it. Paks don’t use bathrooms. Even if they did, just check their left hand to see if it stinks. If it does, then they did use the toilet. That would be a surprise. (You’ve got to know what our soldiers learned in Iraq and Afghanistan about the lack of toilet paper in those countries).
No, not all Pakistanis are primitives. Many are fine people but it only takes one to blow up a plane.
Bacon makes anything and everything better!
Especially long international flights!!!
If somebody was out to murder a few hundred people on a plane do you think they would balk at eating pork?
They are doing Allah’s will. Allah will understand you having bacon on your breath, surely he would.
