And if it wasn’t breaking on Fox News, it would be ignored entirely.
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!!)
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.
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
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”.
That was another “isolated incident.”
Ya get ‘em all the time.
Almost forgot you!!
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.
they did nothing to prevent the Kenyan from destroying the country..
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?
Western officials say many of the hundreds of foreign jihadi fighters in Somalia come in small boats across the Gulf of Aden from Yemen. The officials also say that examination of equipment used in some Somali suicide attacks leads them to believe it was originally assembled in Yemen.
The security official said the [Somali] suspect had a white shampoo bottle with a black acid-like substance in it. He also had a clear plastic bag with a light green chalky substance and a syringe containing a green liquid. The security official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to release the information.
The powdered material had the strong scent of ammonia, Bahoku said, and samples have been sent to London for testing.
I wonder which of the airline crashes since 2003 have been caused by this method?
I think the technique would have been tested until it was reliable, before deployment. One gets caught, one fails to get a high-order detonation, how many have worked?
