The father of the terrorist reported his son to the US authorities in Nigeria 6 months ago.
A source close to him said he was surprised that after his reports to the US authorities, the young man was allowed to travel to the United States.
Thank God for that brave Dutchman! But what about all those boastful macho posts I read here on Free Republic about how airline terrorists better beware if they try anything like that again on a U.S. flight because they will be “taken down” in short order their brave American seatmates. According to news reports NOT A SINGLE American passenger made ANY move against the terrorist, even after hearing a bang and seeing smoke coming from his seat. (Full disclosure: I’m a proud American who gets a little tired of these big talkers)
