Umar Farooq Abdul Mutallib was Convicted of attempting to detonate explosives on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, on Christmas Day, 2009.
Abdul Mutallib studied at University College London in September 2005, where he studied Engineering and Business Finance, and earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering in June 2008.
After the operation carried out by Umar Farooq Abdul Mutallib, Barack Obama said;
“There was a mix of humanic and systematic failures, that contributed to the creation of favourable opportunities for this disastrous security breach to occur; and we must learn from this episode and move quickly to fill the gaps in our security systems”
After tremendous hardwork and large scale financing in the security field by the United States, Jihadists were able to overcome their obstacles. Abdul Mutallib crossed five international airports and neither their technology nor their equipments was able to detect the creative explosive package.
