ABC Refuses to Identify NWA Incident as Terrorism

Two sentences contained in an ABC News article published today stand as proof that the network and its faux reporters are in denial when it comes to identifying terrorism and terrorists:

It is unclear how powerful the explosive could have been and what the man's intentions were. Initial reports were that fireworks or firecrackers had gone off on the plane.

Though writers Richard Esposito and Scott Mayerowitz had already stated in the article's second paragraph that they had learned the man said he was directed by Al-Qaeda to explode a small device in flight, over U.S. soil, they opted to include the sentences highlighted in blue above in the 11th paragraph of the article. Also, please note the headline: Man Attempts to Set Off Explosives on Detroit-Bound Airplane (see screen-shot above).

There is nothing "unclear" about the man's intentions -- unless, that is, you're a member of the mainstream news media, living in a state of denial much like the one in which President Barack Obama seems to live. He was out to kill passengers aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 as it was en route to Detroit from Amsterdam. 'Nuff said.

Perhaps one of these days, reporters might be more afraid of the public than of their paymasters and overlords?

Could it be because Hussein Obama and the “D”’s are in charge of National Security?

It is truly sickening. Zero is setting us up for another attack, by his trying to hide terrorist activities. I believe this idiot imposter that has taken up the office of the Presidency, has islamic ties & does not want to speak out against them. If anyone disagrees with me, that is your God given right...but until I see a bona fide birth certificate I won’t believe anything else...

BTW, A Merry Christmas to all the FReepers!

That's right. There is no war on terror now, because Obama has calmed the Moslem world and brought us all together. This must have been a mere isolated incident.

The end of the AP article stated that the motive behind the Christmas day attack is unclear. (Makes me want to scream and bang their heads into the wall.)

Only if they start feeling fear up close and personal like.

I am certain the man was a deluded member of some Christian fundamentalist group and not at all connected with the religion of peace. Besides after all of Obama’s bowing and scraping the whole world loves us. Sarcasm

If someone yells "Allah abkar" and fizzles a bomb and nobody gets killed, then it's not terrorism.
But, if someone yells "Allah abkar" and kills solders at Ft Hood that's um not Terrorism sither.

I don't get it.

This wasn’t terrorism, just the malfunction of a foot warming device, call in the Consumer Protection police and arrest the evil corporation responsible.

It was terrorism when everyone thought it was probably some redneck geek setting of firecrackers.

Once you throw the words al Qaeda and Muslim into the mix, the word terrorism goes out the window.

It's one of those goofy, "hope and change" things.

To ABC, the election of Reagan and Bush 43 were acts of terrorism.

Maybe Terrorist General Holder put out the word to the press: use the word “terrorist” at your peril.

You cannot have terrorism from Africans while “The One” is in office.

Must be attributed to something else... a misfiring Kwanzaa candle...

People have to wake up the fact the media folks are there to be propagandists not reporters. It's no accident that they've gotten these jobs. If they were to change their views they'd lose their jobs. Waiting for the media to voluntarily change is futile.

The state run media is waiting for their fax so they know what to call this incident.

As Rush has taken up saying "These media people are Repeaters, not Reporters".

Political correctness, which is going to get many of us killed, is a worldwide phenomenon.

Digust and hatred of political correctness, is also a worldwide phenomenon.

Fellow Freepers, Lurkers, Fellow Americans, just check in with what some of the British are saying about this situation involving one of these Muslim "youths" studying in one of their universities in London, on his way to kill nearly 300 people or more in Detroit yesterday (from UK newspaper, 26 December / Online Times):

Michael Jenkins wrote: Aren't we lucky that the teaching at UCL (University College, London) is so bad that he couldn't rig his detonator correctly? Fortunately he was an engineering student and not doing interior design.

December 26, 2009 11:40 AM GMT PAUL LAMBERT wrote: Hopefully this will encourage the US to put real pressure on the UK to finally tighten up it's border controls in a meaningful way as opposed to the lip service that is currently paid. December 26, 2009 11:06 AM GMT

Nova Prosper wrote: Lets not get distracted here, the main priority the country faces, is that we don't let the Tories reinstate fox hunting. Sorting out all the terrorists residing in our universities can come second ,third or more likely never.

Darren G wrote: Another 'student' that Labour let into our country i see. No more student visas should be issued until Labour are booted from power next year.

L S.A wrote: I agree airport security in Lagos, Nigeria is little more than a joke but what about at Amsterdam where this crazy guy boarded the plane. As a young man travelling alone, he should have been profiled and double checked anyway!!!

Memosa Spring wrote: What I don't understand is that hsould I happen to have an ingrown toe nail while I'm travelling somehow the security screening picks that up! How can it not pick up what he was carrying? I know Nigeria quite well. Security there is a joke. Just give a gaurd a cheap ball point pen and they'll let you into the departure lounge with whatever you want! Give them just one USA $ and they'll give you a box of matches ot go with it! Those who know Nigerian airports- especially LAGOS will know exactly what I'm saying.

Richard Beardsley wrote: Geoff POwell: the fact that he boarded a plane somewhere else is not the issue, yes the Americans could have kept a better tab on him but how many "students" are currently exploring the UK and taking an interest in the architecture of large important buildings. How many students are not studying? What is the average attendance in class? You would do nothing to harm the UK, neither would I. However not everyone has the same ideals. The underfunded army is doing what it can but this current problem makes the Irish problem fade into insignificance.

Geoff POwell wrote: Why don't you people read the article properly. He flew from Nigeria, the fact that he's studying at a British university has no relevance here at all. US intelligence knew about him, he was flying on a US airline and he changed in Amsterdam. The UK authorities have no part in the failure to stop this guy.

Richard Beardsley wrote: I love reading the Times beacause there are things covered that are not published in Australian sites and it's good to know what is happening elsewhere.This is worrying when the average bloke can see a pattern occurring here. Student from overseas, already on a watchlist, extremely religious, why is the UK so weak in naming and shaming these groups. Have we got so bogged down in Human Rights issues that we dare not offend a minority religious group that the majority of people in the UK already know who they are. The whole backbone of what used to be British has gone. No I'm not a fanatic or bigot, just seeing how the UK is when viewed from another country. Wake up before it's too late, if it's not already."
