You thought that Brit air officials were overreacting when they announced that mothers would have to taste the contents of their babies’ bottles in front of security agents before being allowed to board with the bottles? Think again, as you read this story in the U.K. Telegraph about the ongoing investigation of the bombing plot uncovered last week (hat tip: Little Green Footballs):
“Scotland Yard police are quizzing Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his 23-year-old wife Cossor over suspicions they were to use their baby’s bottle to hide a liquid bomb.
“The theory is one of the reasons security chiefs are now insisting mothers taste babies’ milk at check-in desks before allowing them to take bottles aboard flights.
“The pair are among up to 23 suspects being questioned over a plot to bring down nine airliners over five US cities, killing thousands of people in the air and on the ground.
“The questioning of the group comes as British Government sources yesterday revealed many of those suspects posed as relief workers to travel to al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan….
“Cossor’s grandfather, Nazir Ahmed, 84, said Abdula had travelled to Pakistan about four weeks ago.
“We didn’t understand what the hurry was and why he needed to go,” Mr Ahmed said.
