The 'Liquid Bombers' Series

This is the title page for my continuing series on the alleged transatlantic airplane bombing plot which was allegedly foiled in early August of 2006. I was guesting at a high-traffic blog at the time the story broke, and I got digging into this bit of news a bit harder than I ordinarily might have. I've kept digging ever since.

I will continue to report on the developments, and I'll update this page as appropriate.
