Skip to comments.Terror suspect's Houston visit raises questions
Posted on 12/27/2009 6:53:21 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
As some Houston leaders called on Sunday for measures to help guard against future terrorist attacks, others questioned why the Nigerian man charged with trying to destroy a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit spent time last year in Houston.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is believed to have traveled to Houston in 2008, but no details of the trip were available Sunday.
U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston declined to discuss any connection Abdulmutallab might have to the city, saying details of the investigation remain classified.
U.S. government officials did confirm that they are looking into his travel itinerary, but the FBI and other agencies refused to comment.
As chair of the Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection, Jackson Lee said government resources must be marshalled for technology and behavior analysis to focus on possible terrorism suspects who act alone.
We must note that the face of the alleged terrorist has changed. They are, in many instances, Westernized. They use blogging and Internet systems. Jackson Lee said. The red flag is that new terrorists of the 21st century having looked back on 9/11 now know the best mode is to fit in.

We all feel safer now.
Well I know we are in good hands now.
You are one worthless POS.
Who will protect us from our protectors? (RIP Mark Scott)
Little by little but fear not, Jackon-Lee in on the case...

With the rats running everything we won’t learn the truth about anything.
Remember that one of the mosques seized by the feds earlier this year was in Houston.
Despite calling for ramped-up security, she said she did not want to see profiling or any stigma attached to Nigerians, a demographic about 100,000 strong in the Houston region.
100K Nigerians in Houston?
How does she know that?
Maybe the new gay mayor of Houston can “fix the problem.”

Friend of Fort Hood gunman 'killed in attack on Yemen hideout'
An American-born radical Islamist, believed to have links to the Fort Hood gunman accused of killing 13 colleagues last month, may have been among 30 militant leaders killed when Yemeni aircraft bombed suspected al-Qaeda hideouts.
Anwar al-Awlaki, who reportedly corresponded by e-mail with Major Nidal Malik Hasan before the shooting at the Texan base, was thought to have been attending an al-Qaeda meeting in Rafadh when the airstrikes took place on Thursday.
ACORN told her so?
Abombamohammad is probably related to Sheila Jackson Leak, D-Houseon.
Sheila Jackson-Lee is a communist America hating evil woman.
I don’t want to hear one peep out of her when it concerns the safety of Americans. She would be VERY HAPPY if all conservative Americans were dead.
Thanks for the ping Jet Jaguar and BUMP.
He’s not dead.
I think it’s a little late to wonder what this islamist was doing in Houston when there are probably thousands of them in every major city in the U.S. Might we begin thinking more about that? Kinda like seeing the forest for the trees or vice versa?
Start profiling per Jackson-Lee's request!
