Officials: Somali Tried to Board Flight With Explosives Last Month

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Officials say a Somali national tried to board a commercial airliner in Mogadishu last month with powdered chemicals, liquid and a syringe that together could have caused an explosion. The hallmarks bear chilling similarities to the terrorist plot to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner.

Police spokesman Abdulahi Hassan Barise says the suspect was arrested before the Nov. 13 Daallo Airlines flight departed. It was scheduled to travel from Mogadishu to the northern Somali city of Hargeisa, then to Djibouti and Dubai.

This has nothing to do with US security. The plane’s destination was Dubai. This sort of thing could be a weekly occurrence in Somalia, for all we know.

Ever heard of a trial balloon? A dry run? Jail time over there for such a crime is probably non-existent. They might even get some free pirate booty.

“stopped a Somali last month”

the Somalis did, probably because they know what kind of Somalis to watch, ie. with profiling.

Thanks for posting. That Gorelick-like wall of separation must’ve been too high for our post-911 government to overcome so that they could connect-the-dots.

Who will protect us from our protectors?

Trusting nothing from officials, I question whether Flight 253-2 wasn’t another failed attempt.

What they are trying to do now is basically assemble bombs in flight.

What they need to do is just ban all powders and liquids of ANY size in carry-on luggage. That will take care of the problem, at least this incarnation of it.

Interesting, a country (Somali) with a barely functioning government, if you even want to call it that, can stop a attempted terrorist attack, yet the western world with all it technology and expensive toys can't !!!

Betcha Somali doesn't really care about things like profiling, diversity or multiculturalism

Yeah, no wonder this story will be deep sixed

I hope the Somalis didn’t violate his Due Process rights.

There is increasing evidence that Detroit is becoming its own Third World Country:

Two passengers on doomed Air France jet cleared of links to Islamic terrorism

By Peter Allen
Created 12:00 PM on 10th June 2009

Two men aboard doomed Air France Flight 447 have been cleared of having links to Islamic terrorism, it has been revealed.

Posthumous security checks into the backgrounds of the men found that they solely ‘shared the same name’ as known Islamic radicals, even though their bodies have not yet been found.

At this point I think that any "unusual occurance" on any plane is a terrorist attack no matter what our government tells us.

Why can’t these nuts blow their balls or feet off at some secluded beach? Is it because Islam is such a social, communal religion?

Here is Cheney’s full statement:

“As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.

“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency – social transformation—the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war.”
