From the Irish Examiner, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
A NEW security threat has emerged as Washington gears up for an extravaganza to swear in President George Bush for a second term – limousines containing bombs.
US intelligence sources admit the fears were partially prompted by a 39-page document seized from al-Qaida. The paper details a mechanism for using limousines to deliver bombs equipped with cylinders of a flammable gas, according to Time magazine.
Bombs can be concealed in limos because the vehicles “blend in” and “do not require special driving skills”, it says.
The paper, titled Rough Presentation for Gas Limo Protection, is thought to have been written by Issa al-Hindi, an al-Qaida operative captured in Britain last year. It details how limos can access underground parking structures and “have tinted windows that can hide an improvised explosive device”.
