Still a Threat

  • A Nigerian man who said he was an agent for al-Qaida tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane Friday as it was preparing to land in Detroit, but travelers who smelled smoke and heard what sounded like firecrackers rushed to subdue him, the passengers and federal officials said.

    Flight 253 with 278 passengers and 11 crew members aboard was about 20 minutes from the airport when passengers heard popping noises, witnesses said. At least one person climbed over others and jumped on the man. Shortly afterward, the suspect was taken to the front of the plane with his pants cut off and his legs burned, a passenger said.

    One U.S. intelligence official said the explosive device was a mix of powder and liquid. It failed when the passenger tried to detonate it.
Sadly, this is what air travel has come to. You never know who, what or when these assholes are going to use or come up with. We have to trust in their incompetence in making homemade explosives to remain safe when flying.

Here's some really bad timing though:
  • Tuesday, December 22, 2009 11:19 PM EST

    JOHNSTOWN — U.S. Rep. John Murtha told reporters Tuesday that he isn't convinced al-Qaida is still a threat to national security.
Ouch, bad timing there John.

John Murtha is also the person that called US Marines "war criminals" after some were accused (and later acquitted) of crimes in Iraq.

He's a true Democrat, hates America.

Al-Quieda and radical islam is a cancer that is spreading quietly and quickly within the U.S. but the Liberals just don't want to wake up and see it. And now with the prison in Illinois taking in these detainee's they get more of a chance to spread their disease to other inmates.

Delta plane coming in at O'Hare yesterday had the airport alerted, reportedly the pilot reported some type of fire on board. It was reported again on the police radio when the flight was 4 miles out, then nothing. Obviously it landed. Then I heard this on the news on the way home. Just wonder if there was a connection. This happened at O'Hare between 1400-1500 hours.

John Murtha, what a dropping from a billy goat's ass.

What the fucks wrong with the people in Pennsylvania? They're kinda like Chicagoans. They keep electing assholes thinking they may get a handout. Maybe B. Hussein Obama was correct when he denigrated and questioned the intelligence of rural Pennsylvanians at a San Fransicko fundraiser in 2008.

He was just trying to light his cigar and somebody stuck a firecracker in it. That was the noise the passengers heard. Now with all the increased security they're going to be checking all the crevices on the passengers. How the fuck did he get on the plane if he was on some FBI list? With a name like that, they shouldn't have let him get into the airport, let alone the airplane.

All who is really concerned

join the Terrorism Liaison Officer Program. There are no districts or Areas that you think are excluded from this program. It a thankless job based on you extra volunteerism. Every district needs as many Officers involved ad possible. Take the time to watch and listen to the available training videos. Also, sign up for email notifications, and keep urself updated with what's going, regional and national enforcement agencies.

Be vigilant and safe.. Terrorism, in it's many forms, is closer than what any one else might tell you..

God Bless.

That would be the logical assessment.

However, in the real world, with the DemocRATS in charge, they will most likely mug for the cameras, wringing their wrists and saying that some how this incident is our fault. At that point, Airport Special will be cut out completely because the Muslim extremists in this country will complain that they are being picked on.

This is what being PC and having the security personnel worry about being sued and losing their jobs instead of profiling.

To all you liberal tree hugging heads stuck in the sand people out there...profiling is a legitimate way of protecting ones ass and the collective asses of society.

Big muslim population in Michigan. Common for flights full of them to come in. Flight originated overseas where they don't have TSA, don't know how their security works but obviously it isn't that hard to get some powder and liquid on that plane.

Nasty stuff can be concocted with small amounts of powder and liquid. Enough to blow a hole in a pressurized airliner.

Cluster fuck at O'Hare yesterday, not enough people working, no traffic people, gridlock parking jams in front of the terminals. Police could only drive around in a car blowing the siren with blue lights on. Of course the good citizens ignored the police.

But the City saved money on personnel...

The bastard got on the plane in a foreign country (Nigeria) not the United States. Lax standards abroad are a problem beyond our control.

I want to thank the brave American hero who jumped on this bastard and prevented him from carrying out his murderous scheme on Christmas Day.

I read where the Nigerian terrorist got second and third degree burns on his thighs. One can only hope the burns singed off his reproductive parts. 72 virgins are no good with no dick and crispy critters for balls.

And the father of this guy was, no joke, the former head of some Nigerian banking empire. He is the guy, apparently, who I have been getting emails from for years offering to send me millions of dollars. Who would have thunk it?

There are any number of ways the TSA could, literally overnight, increase the security on flights ten-fold. They choose not to. This would be ZERO cost (or nearly so) and would use assets already available. What's it gonna take?

John Murtha, what a dropping from a billy goat's ass.

Murtha left the Marines in 1955. He remained in the Reserves after his discharge from active duty until he volunteered for service in the Vietnam War, serving from 1966 to 1967, serving as a battalion staff officer (S-2 Intelligence Section), receiving the Bronze Star with Valor device, two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He retired from the Marine Corps Reserve as a Colonel in 1990, receiving the Navy Distinguished Service Medal.

Is it just me, but why does it seem only MUSLIMS are out blowing up planes and wanting to kill massive amounts of innocent people? Is there a common denominator here, and why aren't we bold enough to point it out?

I don't know if you've seen today's Fox News website, SCC, but it states that this terrorist's own Father warned the US at least 6 months ago concerning his son's extremist religious views and avowed hatred for the West. The article further says that the father was shocked that his son was even allowed to board a plane headed for the US. The State Dept. also admitted that based on his father's notification concerning his son, that a file had been initiated, but that there wasn't enough 'negative info' to officiallÿ place the son on a 'no fly' list. It would appear, based on the article, that WE dropped the ball on this guy, and that the US ducked what could have been a disaster.
This terrorist even picked a seat which placed him directly over the fuel tanks of the plane.

This particular factoid from Wikipedia happens to be true.

As a non-braniac, I did fact check, the $200 million figure is quoted on Fox and CNN and the schedule for the airport is posted on the airport's own website.
