Laptops, airlines, bombs and the brain dead
Tuesday, 21 March 2017
If you were going to make a laptop bomb wouldn't you make the detonator somewhere else? Mobile phone or iPod or something small?

And wouldn't you be happy for the laptop to go in the hold and not as hand baggage? A hole in a plane is pretty lethal wherever it is caused, I would have thought.

It's all beyond me and I have to assume that I am less informed than the experts or that they are less good at considering consequences and alternatives.

Certainly, if I'm wrong and that wasn't the way they would construct their horrid weapons, now they have been tipped off they certainly will.

Can security experts be that stupid?
