: Well, at least they nabbed one:
A British arms dealer was arrested today in Newark on charges that he tried to sell a Russian-made surface-to-air missile to an American undercover agent posing as an operative for Al Qaeda, law enforcement officials said.
A shoulder-fired SA-18 missile and launcher, which had been made inoperable as part of a sting operation, were seized today by American investigators, acting on extensive help from Russian and British authorities, officials said. The missile, when armed, is capable of bringing down a commercial airliner.
In a case of life imitating HBO, the missile was smuggled into the port of Baltimore, the setting of the cop series The Wire.
