#1 If there was nothing to see it wouldn't have taken 8 hours. She was either being less than totally honest in her dealings with the police or there was something there. Perhaps not a bomb but something she didn't want found.
On the other side of things I'm amazed Cair hasn't adopted a plan to encourage these sort of things. Get enough Hijabs walking around acting suspicious with bags and you either (a) dull the population into accepting that until eventually they are no longer called in and one can take a bag bomb wherever needed (b) you get wonderful news coverage of the facists disarming innocent Mulsims because of their relgion. The result would be the same as police were told to back off and then bag bombs could circulate unimpeded.
