A German government minister has today revealed that a fake bomb found on an Air Berlin flight in Namibia was manufactured in the U.S. to test airport security.

OMG The UK mail online is saying a German minister is reporting that the bomb was a test run manufactured by the US. They raised the terror alert and delayed the plane, all because of a "test" wow how ludicrous is this war on the people becoming?

a US company that tests alarms designed the bomb, I wouldn't be surprised if they had some type of connections to the intelligence agencies, otherwise how does a private company just send a "test" onboard without any type of consequences? Can an American citizen "test" the airport securities with a fake bomb? Once again the government is assuming double standards, because if this private company doesn't get indicted for this then they obviously are working with higher ups within the government, it's that simple.

The company is supposedly Larry Copello Incorporated

Intelligence services probably have all sorts of companies, its how they get past laws, that gov programs have to adhere to.

I made a point in another thread but i feel it is actually more valid in this one based on the OP topic:

With respect to the test bomb, I am aware that there was only a detonator and a timer in the laptop bag but if that somehow managed to make its way on to a the plane, could it have been possible to construct a bomb on the airplane using other materials smuggled in by another person?

To me this seems very strange because, after the bag was detected, it was then later linked to a U.S company which makes products used to test security.

If a bomb had been constructed on the plane and detonated, would the same outcome have occurred?
Would that same company have come forward saying that it was their test kit, combined with explosives, which caused the explosion?

If a plan was in motion by some government or organisation to detonate the bomb this seems like a perfect way to deny everything seeing as they failed and they have the easy way out now by saying it was just a test device.

Interestingly, I am aware of a great deal of uranium mining occurring in Namibia and there are plans to open new uranium mines.


It scares me to think that there could be a possibility of somebody turning Namibia into an 'unstable' or 'terrorist harboring' country for the sole purpose of acquiring this uranium. I can assure you that Namibia is a lovely place with amazing citizens who rarely ever experience conflict and violence. The last sentence being based purely on numerous visits and holidays to Namibia and therefore, my personal opinion.

Maybe someone can offer some more insight, and shed some light on this subject and ideas.

Many Thanks

How does a US company get away with this? Either they need to prosecute someone now or they risk making it look like they are somehow behind it. Will they try to deny this claim or will they have some sort of glib rational that it's good for the world. This is really mind boggling, I'm wondering why no one else is commenting on it.

A CNN report that i was watching stated that the company who made the test-kit could not to determine who they sold the test-kit to, but that they did say that they do not sell to private companies.
Has anyone else heard something similar, i'm sorry but i was not able to find a source as I caught it on TV.

this is no doubt meant to rile up the Europeans against America, I haven't heard though what the whitehouse is saying about this, are they denying it or are they admitting this was some sort of crazy drill? What do you think about the divide and conquer angle blaming this on the US? or do you think the US is solely responsible? Or is it al CIAda? or al Qaeda? What do you think?

The state departement put the underwear bomber on the plane and then sat there and filmed the whole thing and still tried to pass it off as a real terrorist incident to justifiy xray kiddy porn machines and groping Jesse the body Ventura's butt....
So, I think anything is possible...

anwar al maliki (sp? ) while number three on the terrorist list, now number one, it has been revealed, has been a regular visiter to the white house since 911...
