Yemeni police have arrested a woman on suspicion of mailing a pair of bombs powerful enough to take down airplanes, officials said Saturday as details emerged about a terrorist plot aimed at the U.S. that exploited security gaps in the worldwide shipping system.

Investigators were hunting Yemen for more suspects tied to al-Qaida and several U.S. officials identified the terrorist group's top explosives expert in Yemen as the most likely bombmaker.

I'll bet Obama was playing golf instead of taking this sort of action in Yemen.

Deep in the foxnews article is this:

Rabbi Michael Zedek of Emmanuel Congregation said he was told by a Jewish leader in Chicago that the smaller Or Chadash congregation was one of the targets. The FBI did not confirm that, and both Zedek and Chadash Rabbi Larry Edwards said they had not spoken to law enforcement. Or Chadash members took the news calmly, Edwards said. The synagogue, which has about 100 members, serves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Jews and their families.

Strange a Jewish synagogue serving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Jews and their families. I would of never guess that going on, I guess I really don't know what out their in the real world. One wonders if they were targeting the Jews or targeting the lesbian, gays, etc. Maybe their were looking at killing two enemies with one bomb. One wonder who are authorities/spies are really looking out to protect. Strange world.

The target doesn’t matter...it’s making sure it gets in the news and security gets exposed.

The big thing is that the tip off came in time. So was it planned that way??

They're holding back a lot of dots.

The whole thing is strange. Why blow up cargo? Unless they were going to do it to spread nbc over a highly populated area.

Not long back a lady called in to Michael Savage’s program and she said her fear is someone infecting themself and getting on a plane. By the time we figure that out lots of people would be sick.

No wonder zero was gritting his teeth having to talk about it.

Weirdest terror story I can remember.

That's an old "in the box" scenario. Many ways to address it. It's been discussed many times.

There's a greater possibility from kids who don't get shots when they're babies.

Look at the whooping cough problem.

And polio in some countries.

But more people still die from the flu than just about anything.

It makes me wonder if this is what tipped off the Saudi Intelligence off to investigate . How many synagogues in the world have Jews, lesbians, gays, etc. Probably not to many unless your in the U.S.

When you ship, you check off a box that says there’s no explosives inside.

Not only that why address the packages to Jewish Synagogues, which might get more attention from security, if you intended to blow up the plane? A more benign address would make more sense.

I don’t know why i’m simply so suprised that freight,cargo,parcels etc from overseas entering here aren’t screened prior to being shipped,and i’m not being sarcastic either—all our employees put at risk,the possibilities of another Locherbee etc.

Yes, most likely. It was probably a trial run to find out our weak areas. Come on, they told us there were bombs and even had some covered in white powder and wires. Hellloo, follow the bread crumbs! That was the bait to start the intelligence agencies, here and in Britain, into motion. Then, all they had to do was sit back and watch. This is their popcorn time. Wait and see what happens. Next time, they won't give us warnings.

A "security gap" that has been there since the advent of air cargo and the Muzzies only now thought "gee, let's just ship our bombs!" Horse feathers!

Yesterday Fox News reported that there was no power source to the detonators but that seems to have dropped into the memory hole.

Yes and the post office will ask if there’s anything liquid, flammable, or potentially hazardous. The bad guys aren’t going to be honest about that though. 8^)
