On Second Though

Just a week or two ago the French government was quietly poo-pooing the threat from the canceled Air France flights. You remember that one where the alert went out hours before the flight was scheduled to take off, right? Big surprise that some passengers failed to show up.

Now it appears that French investigators are seeking a man with alleged al-Qaida links who failed to board an Air France flight on Christmas Eve.

American officials said the passenger had a French passport and was believed to have undergone training in Afghanistan. French officials said that the man was feared to have a small bomb whose components might get past airport security. The man was ticketed for Air France flight 68 from Paris to Los Angeles on Dec. 24.
