Mass murder in the skies: was the plot feasible?

Binary liquid explosives are a sexy staple of Hollywood thrillers. It would be tedious to enumerate the movie terrorists who've employed relatively harmless liquids that, when mixed, immediately rain destruction upon an innocent populace, like the seven angels of God's wrath pouring out their bowls full of pestilence and pain.

A decent article which stresses that the recent terror scare was really much ado about nothing. There was no imminent risk - the group had been under surveillance for a year and their scheme was seriously flawed. But much political hay is being made from it.
