** Nothing better shows how overly complicated their plan is than by remembering that step one involved [[spoiler:Murdering an American expatriate just so they could use his casket to smuggle the bomb on board the plane,and to get his wife and daughter on board the flight to set up a DeceasedFallGuyGambit. If the authorities even suspected that Gene was involved in Kyle's husband's death. Or if Kyle herself had stayed to cooperate with the investigation if the police suspected foul play. The plan would have been foiled before it even got off the ground.]]
