Was the OU Suicide Bomber Incident a Test Run for the Real Thing at the Super Bowl in Detroit?

Imagine this scene:

Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander has just ripped off a 60-yard run for a touchdown and the extra point kick is good, evening the score in the Super Bowl with the Pittsburg Steelers at 14-all early in the second quarter at Ford Field in Detroit.

The celebratory fireworks boom, Seahawk fans are going crazy and .... wait, what is that in the stands .... oh no .... three suicide bombers have detonated themselves within seconds and ... the carnage is ... unspeakable. There is panic ... more carnage ....

If you think I am being alarmist, read this.

It could be worse, much, much worse. Read this.


Curt at Flopping Aces pulled together all the signs of an attack at the Super Bowl here. It's a lot of material, but put it all together and you just might want to cancel your flight to Detroit. Curt posted this roundup two weeks ago, but I am just today (2/2/06) finding it and only because Curt pointed it out to me.

That's great work, Curt. I would have linked to you much earlier if I'd known.
