739. 1/15/1995

“In a file [World Trade Center bomber Ramzi] Yousef had created on his laptop under the heading ‘Bojinka’ he detailed how five of his men would plant bombs timed to explode simultaneously on 11 US airliners over the Pacific [in January 1995]. If successful the operation would have caused the deaths of up to 4,000 people flying from Asia to the United States and almost certainly shut down the entire airline industry.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
