A little history about airplanes and liquids...... 12 years later, and our intelligence agency acts like.....oh what a shock. This could have been the big one. Oh my God....we had no idea. Yeah....keep voting for Republicans and allowing our government to remain the cesspool of incompetence that it has become. They'll keep you safe...... NOT.

Manila (dpa) - A foiled plot to bomb US-bound air planes in Britain bears a striking resemblance to a murderous plan hatched in the Philippines more than a decade ago and uncovered just days before a visit of late Pope John Paul II in 1995.

The 1995 plot, dubbed "Project Bojinka" or "Oplan Bojinka," would have been the first large-scale terrorist attack against commercial passenger air planes using "liquid bombs."

It targeted 11 US-bound airlines that had stopovers in East and South-East Asia. It was to have been carried out from January 21 to 22, 1995.

The plot was planned in Manila starting December 1994 by Ramzi Yousef, the convicted mastermind of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, and associates Abdul Hakim Murad and Wali Khan Amin Shah.

It was, however, foiled when Murad was arrested in January 1995 after a fire broke out in their rented apartment in downtown Manila, which the three militants had turned into a clandestine bomb factory.
