Authorities are investigating whether Hesham Mohammed Hadayet, the Egyptian who gunned down two people at Los Angeles International Airport last Thursday, met in the United States with Osama bin Laden’s deputy, an Arabic paper reported at the weekend.

Sure, Sully may be onto something, arguing that Hadayet was America’s first suicide bomber. That could very well be the start of a very scary trend.
