ABC NEWS seems to have the most information about this terrorist act-—
Because their religion commands them to kill infidels? Just a wild guess ...
Thanks, TSA - or FCC - or whoever is in charge of seeing that those on the no fly list don’t fly.
Earlier reports also said passengers subdued the terrorist.
Nothing more on that fact yet???
At least they have acknowledged the...man (terrorist)... was trying to blow up the plane,.,.
Because their religion commands them to kill infidels? Just a wild guess “
I am told Islam is a Religion of Peace.
From the ABC article:
“Obama then instructed that ‘all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel.’”
I guess now we will have to fly naked, that is all that is left.
These people have made me a ‘frequent driver’ for sure.
Make that FAA, not FCC - jeez - too much Christmas food!
Flight arrived from Amsterdam. TSA had nuthin' to do with it.
muslims are peaceful people. religion of peace and all that.
they love their kids too. never kill them, or anything.
Oh, our poor, baffled, clueless government. How many years will it take them to figure this out (or admit what every half-informed American has known at least since 9/11/2001).
Yep. And "Our diversity is our strength" and "we are not a Christian nation" and "War is peace" and "Your butt doesn't look big in those pants" ... :)
But Napolitano will tell Us that this MUZZIE was really a Peace Loving Angel that Loved Everyone and had probably been mistreated by “Vicious, Right Wing Extremist, Christian Church Goer, Who actually Works Full Time to Raise a God Fearing LL of Her FREEDOMS!” Napolitano will probably hire the Muzzie to train our Security Personnel.
Ahh, maybe because that's what muzzie's do?
All muslims should be strip searched before being allowed to board a plane. Anyone from a list of certain countries should be the same.
it was just Nigerian Christmas powder.
Just as long as they don't attempt to profile or search any Muslims.
