France has received numerous threats from Islamic terrorist groups in recent months, especially since French troops were sent to fight in Afghanistan.
Security chiefs have been particularly worried about airborne suicide attacks similar to the ones on the US on September 11, 2001.

Unfortunately it will inspire the radicals for ever more crazy killings on airplanes. If they got this one they will go for more...if it was terrorism you can bet on more.

seriously, if it was a terrorist... why over the middle of the ocean? Why not over Rio or Paris? The whole point of a terrorist is to inspire terror. If it happens over the middle of the ocean where no one will know why or if it happened, their "cause" will never be known. Doesn't fulfill their mission. ...just a thought.

p.s. as far as we know, no terrorist organizations have taken credit for it which would happen almost immediately as they want everyone to know it was them... they want the media attention.

FWIW...

There was a terrorist plot a few years ago to bomb successive flights over NATS westbound from the UK. The cell (natural born english muslims, most of whom - if failing memory serves me - were doctors) had planned for at least 7 aircraft to go down in the matter of a few hours, each one at different points overwater so that no-one would know for hours or days what the he!! had happenned. There was a similar plot a few years before that for planes out of the Pacific, Eastbound from I think Singapore or the Phillipines.

Unless this was a test run, then of course they wouldn't announce it... as for the striking terror part, I've got a well-travelled neighbor who is very leary about getting on an Airbi until they can figure this thing out...

God Bless the crew and pax. Be safe out there.

I think that having airplanes disappear over the ocean would instill terror in many.

Every terrorist act has the perpetrating group plus another two or three groups claiming responsibility because that is the whole purpose to let people know you did it, but not a peep in ten days! the search for answers continues

Cool
At ease gentlemen, story has been rebuffed by French authorities. The names in question are very common (there are literally million of people called Mohammed or Ali) and that`s all there is to it.

"Loud Bang"- A plot to use commercial airliners as weapons, specifically to blow up the CIA headquarters and another plot to put bombs on U.S. airliners. This was briefed to President Clinton in 1996.

Clinton of course took a lawyers approach towards this rather than a approach for our national security....

Huh?
Take the easy route, blame it on BUSH

Good point. Bush did have them up against the ropes in Afganistan. Ready to deliver the final blow, Bush thought it was better to divert attention, money, and the military to Iraq and take out Saddams MASSIVE nuclear program and his ties to Al-Queada then to finish the job in Afganistan...Yeah Bush!!
