This unemployed person was arrested with close to 80,000 dollars and a laptop with info on cyanide and nuclear materials in Dallas. He had just come
from Nigeria. I am sure that his intents were all good.
Sorry if this is posted elsewhere and I missed it. It is a dangerous world we live in. I am glad they caught this person, hopefully it will remind
people why we need to have heightened security on airplanes still.
Can you imagine the effect of releasing cyanide gas onto an airplane in flight? I assume the cockpits are airproof and presurized but am not positive
about this. In any case, Thanksgiving is just around the corner and the busiest flying holiday in the states.
Vigilance is the price of survival.
Edit: correction, he was arrested in Detroit en route to phoenix which is just a hop skip and a jump from LA and 3 super busy airports that go all
over the world and a few smaller, yet equally busy ones - LAX, John Wayne, Burbank, Long Beach, Santa Monica, etc.
