Well, I guess we know what these Nigerians have been doing with the money they scammed from us in the emails. Airline tickets in cash and non-metallic explosive devices.

I swore I was not going to get on FR repeatedly today...I had read all there was available on the first Nigerian would-be bomber and didn’t need to check on the news anymore...

succumbed to temptation when I came to the study to look up ‘the Master And Margarita’ on Amazon...

Thought, Oh Well, I’ll just check in for a sec...

And now a second Nigerian would-be bomber!!

god help us, every day there is something worse...

This just happened. A second plane. Apparently, the Nigerian flying from Amsterdam to Detroit on same flight number caused a verbal disruption & locked himself in bathroom. Left Nigeria with no luggage. That’s all I know at this time.

Looks like this is a new one:

DETROIT (AP) - A passenger onboard the same Northwest Airlines flight that was attacked on Christmas Day was taken into custody in Detroit on Sunday after becoming verbally disruptive upon landing, officials said.

A law enforcement official said the man was Nigerian and had locked himself in the airliner's bathroom. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

Delta Air Lines spokeswoman Susan Elliott said crew members requested that security remove the man from Flight 253 after he became disruptive. The remaining 255 passengers got off safely, she said.

Airport spokesman Scott Wintner said it was the same flight on which a man tried to set off an explosive on Christmas Day.

"The pilot requested emergency assistance upon arrival," he said.

Security and airline personnel are on edge since the attempted terror attack on Christmas Day, and the law enforcement official said that lesser incidents had been reported on other flights arriving in Detroit, but the incident with the Nigerian man had sparked the most concern.

And yet all the increased security is aimed at air travelers in general. How about just not letting Muslims get on a plane until they have gone through a complete body search. White Europeans have not yet adopted Sharia Law and the Quran.

Additional general restrictions will affect the economy - less people flying, less commerce. If Muslims were banned, there would be only a miniscule affect to the economy.

One loophole [maybe?] - we should let any Muslim that owns over a billion barrels of crude in the ground on our aircraft.

Nappy;
“This was a terrible tragedy for all involved,” Napolitano told reporters in the United Arab Emirates’ capital Abu Dhabi. “Obviously, we object to — and do not believe — that anti-Muslim sentiment should emanate from this.”

especially if his administration is constantly accusing the CIA and other first responders for doing their job.
