Terrorist Attack at Moscow’s Domdedovo Airport

A suicide bomber set off an explosion this morning in the baggage arrival section of the Domodedovo Airport, which is the principal International Airport in Moscow. At least 39 people were killed and over 160 were injured.

The commentator here talks about “Airport Security”. Unfortunately the one area of an airport which is not secured is the arrivals area. In most airports, people can enter or exit that area from the Arrivals area of the airport at will without going through any security scanning. It would not have been difficult for a terrorist to sneak into that area pretending to be someone meeting an arriving passenger.

The ugly truth is Airport Security is really about protecting the expensive airplanes and facilities… Not the passengers.

No word on who the terrorists might be, or what their motivation is yet. Russia, like America certainly has a large enough whack-job population for this to have been a “statement” by a crazy.
