But I thought of this when I read your piece and I thought I'd share it with you.
I interviewed Kurt Haskell - Underwear Bomber Witness - a while ago via Skype at the public library for my book club.
He related to us that when he started pushing for answers about the experience he and the passengers had on that flight, he started to get phone calls from someone telling him to shut up.
He went to tell us something about it and the Skype connection apparently cut out. I asked him again what he said and the Skype connect cut out momentarily again. (You can watch the youtube clip at the link above) I emailed Kurt after and asked him specifically about that. He said via email response that the guy who called him worked for THE ASIAN DEVELOPMENT BANK. He did not seem to recognize the name.
I relayed to him that the The Asian Development Bank is the company that is (or was at the time) funding the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline to the tune of 7.6 Billion USD.
L-3 is the company that conveniently had the full body scanners on hand for quick distribution to the airports.
I don't know exactly why. But I wanted to share that with you and the DP.
