"The public isn't aware how many people are allowed to travel through the U.S. who are linked, who intersect with bad guys or alleged bad guys," a national security official said.

Although U.S. border enforcement officials have access to passenger data based on reservation lists and use them for preliminary assessments, the in-depth vetting by Customs and Border Protection only begins once the flight manifest has been generated, just a few hours before takeoff, and focuses on potential actions to take at the U.S. border, the official said.
Greeeeeeeaaaaat. So the ‘panty raid’ was ‘up in the air’? Argh!
They were wanting to read him his rights...just in case.

One would think they’d have had someone on-board the flight, just in case...
Just when you think we couldn’t be any stupider, we go and exceed all expectations......
It’s time to retire the brainwashed and braindead.
If DHS or Holder is reading this.... I’m sorry but....
NOBODY BELIEVES YOU.
I don’t buy this for a moment!
They wanted to offer him a beer in exchange for not being mad at us for keeping GITMO open so long.
