Skip to comments.Officials: Somali Tried to Board Flight With Explosives Last Month
Posted on 12/30/2009 5:33:04 AM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo
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.

And if it wasn’t breaking on Fox News, it would be ignored entirely.
Actually, it is an AP story, so it should get some play....
They are letting this info out to save their own hides. “See, we stopped a Somali last month” (in other words, see, we’re on the job!!)
Perhaps, but Obama stupidly called the Flight 253 incident “isolated.” Most likely not isolated if other terrorists are trying the same method.
Block entry to all from countries infested with jihadis, and send all home who have come from there.
Striking similarities? How fabulously understated. Except for the itinerary and nationality of the perp, it’s identical. This should be shoved down the throats of media or administration apologists parroting the obvious fiction that this is an isolated incident.
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.
Was Dubai this guy’s final destination?
Do Dearborn and Detroit Michigan count as countries infested with jihadis?
The Detroit bomber was very recently in Dubai. The Somalia incident perhaps accounted for heightened security at Dubai prior to Christmas, and the Detroit incident probably has accounted for even tougher securty at Dubai in the last few days.
So what we have here are multiple, isolated, completely disconnected but totally identical incidents. Uh huh.
It’s a glorious time to be a jihadist.
So this little unheard of airline has better security than the big boys.
these isolated extremists just keep popping up, don’t they
meanwhile obama orders his security teams to gin up operation “whack a mole” by New Years’ eve
Wasn’t it the Somali’s who stopped him?
Freepers figuring out what the MSM and the Administration can't -- or won't.
When are they going to finally cover the kid and the brazilians or the Sheen 911 tape or Tiger Woods, America needs to know people!! /s
Yep, and I’ve got a fiver that says the guy they stopped in Somalia is one of the folks that have disappeared from the Twin Cities in the past couple of years....
Obammy did suspend his badly needed vacation in Hawaii for 10 minutes, before he teed off on the back 9, to calm the public not to worry. He has it well in hand that the “system” installed by his predecessor was faulty and that he would “fix it”.
