Failed bomber

The failed bomb attempt on Christmas day and the failure of the security services is quite interesting from a data point of view. Apparently the agencies gave different databases which were not linked up properly. This is almost like in a badly run marketing or sales department. What the agencies need is a single suspect view. However the risk of errors is amazingly higher than in any marketing department.
