U2 Bests CIA in Security

U2 news article - from @U2: "
A single copy of the album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, one of three in existence, is on a global tour for preview sessions.

Chris Dwyer, of the band's record company Island, arrived yesterday with the disc in a briefcase handcuffed to her arm. (Edit) exclusive listening party. As a red light flashed outside the boardroom, mobile phones were confiscated as one of the company's staff half-jokingly patted us down for recording devices.

The CD was theatrically brought to the boardroom by another staffer dressed in a radiation suit, the message being that U2 have delivered their most explosive album in years. The fake bombs and missiles positioned around the room drove home the point."
