Waiting For Answers On Terrorism Attempt

We’ll probably learn a whole lot more in the next couple of days about the Nigerian man who told authorities he was trying to blow up a Delta flight above Detroit.

It will of course be particularly important to know how he got the explosives past security at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, and whether he had enough to bring down the jet.

To those posting on message boards about lax European airport security, I have to say that I have never been as closely questioned and screened for a flight as at Schiphol. Lax really isn’t a word that comes to mind in that context.

    Unbelievably scary. Like I said before, I was astounded to see a man in the Athens airport drop his cigarettes and lighter in a container to go through the security screening line. I can’t bring more than 2 ounces of shampoo on a flight but this guy could light the cabin on fire?
