Quote:US 'foils new underwear bomb plot' by al-Qaeda in Yemen:wtf:
The US has foiled a plot by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to detonate an upgraded version of the failed 2009 "underwear bomb", US officials say.
The alleged device was seized in the Middle East after a CIA operation in Yemen and is being studied by the FBI.
Reports say no target had been chosen and no plane tickets purchased by the time the alleged plot was foiled.
Officials say there was never any risk to the public. It is not clear what has happened to the would-be bomber.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-17985709
So really nothing happened, it was just one big ƒück up involving the CIA and the FBI.
Was this guy involved
