Security leak revealed.
Another blot on the Blotter:
U.S. Air Marshals Flooding German, British Flights
Richard Esposito and Rhonda Schwartz Report
As many as five or six U.S. air marshals are now assigned to each U.S.-bound flight from airports in Frankfurt, London and Manchester, England, because of fears terrorists might attempt a coordinated series of mid-air explosions, law enforcement officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com.
“We’re afraid someone in the back is going to mix something or light something up, so air marshals are being placed strategically through the plane,” said one senior law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the stepped-up security.
The stepped-up security on flights out of Britain’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester airports began about two weeks ago, based on intelligence reports that another al Qaeda hijacking plot was in the making, the officials said.
Is there any security secrets that the US media is not willng to share with the terrorists?
More… A close relative of mine is a US Air Marshal. He won’t tell me a thing about his work or position. Thank goodness for ABC. Now, we can all learn everything about this secret security program!
