The underwear bomber and airline 'safety'
The news this Christmas day was alarming: another apparently al Qaida-connected terrorist tried to blow up a plane headed for Detroit. After further review, there are three deeper lessons we must learn from this incident.
Lesson 1: We are lucky. Thankfully, the plane landed safely and the passengers, other than the alleged bomber who concealed the explosive PETN in his underwear, were OK. We're lucky everyone was OK because of Lesson 2.
