Delta Flight 1706 on the ground in ALBUQUERQUE

If any airport needs to be closely monitored, it would be Detroit.  Detroit and environs is home to the largest Muslim population in the US.  Signs throughout the facility are in Arabic and English. Most important, Detroit was the destination of the infamous December 25th underwear bomber in 2009.

This time around, the flight originated in Detroti and was headed to San Diego.  The nature of the “security threat” that has caused Delta flight 1706 has been diverted to Albuquerque, NM is unclear.  NBC News broke this story.
