Glasgow Airport Incident

by Juan Cole

Apparent car bombing attack at Glasgow Airport. The two drivers appear to have been arrested.

The eyewitness description suggests rank amateurs with no training. They didn’t actually get close enough to do much damage, and their behavior suggests that something went very wrong– what with one of them on fire and trying to get into the trunk.

Larry Johnson points out that Friday’s similar incident in London was similarly a SNAFU.

Long may terrorists be clueless screw-ups who can’t start fires in cars because they leave the windows rolled up and starve the flames of oxygen, and who scramble around to manually detonate things while on fire themselves.

Just remember what screw-ups these guys are when Alberto Gonzales comes to you with a plea to repeal the Bill of Rights in order to deal with them.
