    I read that as "underwater" and was going to point out that they should try sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads.

    How long before TSA bans underwear while flying altogether? Hey, that could be fun.

    I've got an explosive device in my underwear.

    Might speed things along in the security line.

    The underwear bomber 2.0 was working for us.

    Yeah, pretty cool.

    I wonder if we'll ever find out who he is -- his nationality, and who recruited him? The Times only says that it wasn't the CIA that recruited him.

    I know the government was supposedly furious with AP for breaking the story but... sigh.... it's so easy to be cynical about this. The timing is a bit suspicious. Speaking as someone who will never ever vote for Romney, it's like in 2004, when those pesky terrorist threat levels always seemed to rise in lockstep with John Kerry's poll numbers.

    Saw somewhere that he's attached to the Saudi intel agency.
