It’s not like this regime has no experience in gun smuggling operations.

In fact they are ineffective against airliners not because of a size of a warhead which is sufficient to knock any engine but because of a short range. Manpads are simply short legged to catch up with aircraft cruising at 30,000 altitude.
Helicopters aren’t an easiest target which are actually a low flying fighter-bombers. Twin engine aircraft are less vulnerable as you can find on many videos from Chechen-Russian war on YouTube.
In fact commercial airliners might make good targets on departure as well. It is certainly not a best time to lose an engine.

I was looking at the Drudge on my noon hour and saw the story. I decided to look at it in more depth when I got home from work. When I went to the Drudge, it was gone. However, a simple google search had pages and pages of the story. Here is a sample and that is up to page 2 in Google:

It flies at Mach 2, reaches up above 10,000 feet, and the aircraft needn't be seen against empty sky for targeting. Also the Grinch needn't score a physical hit for detonation --it also comes equipped with proximity fusing, so if senses an impending bypass, it will still trigger. Also if there is remaining fuel, this, too, will be blown in the explosion as a kicker.

Flight 800?
