“In other words this bomb is so sensitive that the slightest movement either inside or outside will cause it to explode.” In 1980, a bomb was smuggled into Harvey’s Wagon Wheel Casino in Lake Tahoe. In an attempt to defuse it, it exploded and severely damaged the hotel. It was the largest domestic bomb to be detonated in the US until the World Trade Center bombing in 1993. And yet, no-one was killed.
The FBI continues to use the model of the bomb built for the trial for training.
