The Christmas Day Terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was mentored in London. The post and comments in this article from the UK's TimesOnline is an eye opener.

Here, a Somali man was arrested in Mogadishu with the same setup as Abdulmutallab. The authorities in Somalia had no problem isolating him as a suspicious character and they weren't doing full body scans.

Seems they are running 50-50 with this method, because the Xmas Day guy did get on the plane. Odds are that they will try this method again, methinks.

They're trying out a number of dry run type attempts testing our parameters in the air, Bernita. If we don't adopt some type of Israeli intelligent profiling all the machines and billions of bucks spent on politically correct nonsense will end eventually in disaster. The agents in Mogadishu picked out a suspicious character without a billion dollar body scanner.
