We seek broader engagement based upon mutual interest and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstanding, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful even when we do not agree. Obama
He was allowed to fly because Obama says we must respect it!
So tell me, me and my kids are harassed to no end when traveling. prodding, searching etc.? All for security. Grandmas remove their wigs, the disabled have their walkers confiscated, babies are seized, but this devout Muslim strolls on, chemicals in tow, unmolested.
We are living in a quasi-police state while the real perps, the real killers, our mortal enemies are given special treatment, special class status, the enemy combatants are giving special korans -- the very violent text that prescribes these acts.
Here is the first pictures on the plane of the Muslim airplane bomber.
From the CNN -- the Crescent News Network:
A Christmas Day attempt by a Nigerian [Mulsim] man who claimed he was acting on orders from al Qaeda to ignite an incendiary device on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 as it approached Detroit from Amsterdam has caused airport security to be ramped up during peak holiday travel. The Obama White House has called the incident "an attempted act of terrorism."
While the official threat level has not been raised, "there will be things going on that you don't see and I don't see," Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee, told Politics Daily. U.S. law enforcement agencies "will also be in very close contact with our allies, with all our terrorist agencies operating at full throttle." King predicted "delays will probably be minimal. I think its going to be more surveillance, more watching. I would not expect significant delays."
Homeland Security Press Secretary Sara Kuban said "passengers may notice additional screening measures putting into place to ensure the safety of the traveling public on domestic and international flights."
King told Politics Daily the 23-year-old suspect, who he identified as Abdul Mudallad, was not on a terrorist no fly list--but was on the U.S. database of suspected terrorists, King said. Though Mudallad claims to have been acting on direct orders from al Qaeda, ties have not been confirmed and he may have been inspired by, rather than acting in concert with, that particular terror group.
