According to the British (can we still use that term without being called "racist"?) Prime Minister, one of the bombs found in yesterday's Islamic attack on the West was designed to blow up the aircraft. The leftwing media is pulling the "Yemen is poverty stricken" meme out of its nonsensical narrative box. But an arrest made today was of a well-to-do, educated female Muslim and her mom. It's a family affair.
I do not believe this helps the Dems in Tuesday's election. They are jihad enablers (Obama being the worst of them all). His GITMO releases are in leadership in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen. That includes some Saudi muslims who were detained at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay – including the group’s deputy leader, Said al-Shihri.
Prime Minister David Cameron says the device in a package sent from Yemen and found on a US-bound cargo plane was designed to go off on the aircraft.
But Mr Cameron said investigators could not yet be certain about when the device, intercepted at East Midlands Airport, was supposed to explode.
A second device containing explosives was found on a cargo plane in Dubai. The US suspects al-Qaeda involvement.
In Yemen, police have arrested a woman suspected of posting the packages.
She was detained in the capital, Sanaa, after being traced through a telephone number she had left with a cargo company, officials said.
The unnamed young woman, described as a medical student and the daughter of a petroleum engineer, was arrested along with her mother on the outskirts of the city, a security official told AFP news agency.
US President Barack Obama's national security adviser, John Brennan, has phoned Mr Saleh to offer US help in fighting al-Qaeda, the White House said.
[...]Mr Cameron told reporters at his country residence, Chequers, that it was believed the explosive device intercepted at East Midlands Airport was "designed to go off on the aeroplane".

David Cameron: "We believe the device was designed to go off on the aeroplane"
"We cannot be sure about when that was supposed to take place," he added.
"There is no early evidence that it was meant to take place over British soil, but of course we cannot rule it out."
This is the same schmuck who wants to censure the EDL.
