    For twenty years – long before 9/11 – the danger of terrorists armed with surface to air missiles shooting at passenger planes has been the secret fear of many top political leaders. In the late 90s, a terrorist network was nabbed trying to bring them into Newark Airport, but the airline industry and the government have done nothing to equip passenger airplanes with any defense against these always deadly missiles. Now Barack Obama has committed the ultimate sin: He has let 20,000 surface-to-air missiles escape from military depots in Libya. According to ABC News “U.S. officials had once thought there...

    South Korea's defence minister confirmed Monday that traces of high explosive were found on the wreckage of a warship sunk by a mystery blast, indicating it was probably hit by a torpedo. The 1,200-tonne corvette was split in two near the tense Yellow Sea border with North Korea on March 26. Suspicion has fallen on the North. Defence Minister Kim Tae-Young, confirming earlier media reports that had been denied by his ministry, said investigators had found traces of RDX explosive, which is widely used in torpedoes. The discovery means a torpedo was the likeliest cause of the disaster, Kim said...

The Cheonan broke in two and sank, killing 46 sailors. Data picture "Explosive traces found in the...

    MUMBAI: Police and security agencies here have got a specific alert — from the police of a north Indian state — about RDX having been smuggled into the country as part of a cement consignment from Pakistan and the target being an oil refinery. Officials said the high alert sounded at vital installations like railway stations and hotels in Mumbai last December was not a reaction to the 26/11 carnage but had its basis in this specific intelligence input. Officials also told TOI that more RDX could be coming in as part of cement or other consignments. But the alert...

Authors with the U.S. Office of Intelligence and Analysis added that they have "no credible or specific information that terrorists are planning operations against public buildings in the United States." The FBI and DHS analysts said they were releasing the note because "it is important for local authorities and building owners and...

    In the latest attempt to link the deadliest form of roadside bombs in Iraq to components manufactured in Iran, U.S. Army officers on Monday displayed plastic explosives they said were made in Iran and recovered during a raid recently in violence-racked Diyala Province. An Army explosives expert said the C-4 plastic explosives were used to make lethal bombs that the military calls explosively formed projectiles. The explosives were found alongside enough bomb-making materials to build 150 EFPs capable of penetrating heavily armored vehicles, according to the expert, Maj. Martin Weber.

    BOMBAY, India - A powerful military explosive — one often used by Islamic militants fighting in India's part of Kashmir — was used in last week's Bombay train bombings, investigators said Monday. Indian officials have linked the attacks that killed 182 people to Pakistan, and the use of RDX explosives is a hallmark of the militants, who get at least a degree of support from Islamabad in their fight to wrest the predominantly Muslim Kashmir from India. "The explosive used was a mixture of ammonium nitrate, RDX and fuel oil," said K.P. Raghuvanshi, who leads the anti-terrorist squad investigating the...

    No guards. No lights. No cameras. No alarms. A barbed-wire fence, a gate, a few warning signs and some locks are what guarded several hundred pounds of explosives, enough to blow up a large building. The security measures, which meet federal regulations, are what a thief faced sometime last week when the plastic explosives, 2,500 blasting caps and explosive detonator cords were stolen from a Bernalillo County storage depot. The explosives belonged to Cherry Engineering. The company is owned by Chris Cherry, one of the nation's most respected bomb experts and a Sandia National Laboratories employee. The security measures protecting...
