Posted on 01/02/2010 8:01:36 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
(CNN) -- President Obama pledged Saturday that the United States will hold accountable all of the individuals involved in the failed Christmas Day terrorist attack aboard a U.S.-bound jetliner.
"All those involved in the attempted act of terrorism on Christmas must know you, too, will be held to account," Obama said in his weekly address.
Obama also recently spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to receive an update on a federal review of "detection capabilities and ... enhanced security measures" put in place since the attempted bombing.
A new Transportation Security Administration directive requires airlines to physically pat down all passengers boarding planes bound for the United States and inspect their carry-on bags.
The directive also gives airlines the discretion to take other measures to prevent people from secretly assembling or igniting bombs on aircraft. Those measures include prohibiting people from keeping pillows or blankets on their laps during the final hour of a flight.

I feel so safe now.......
so, he’s going to throw his obamaice at yemen?
I believe that’s the first time The One has ever used the word “terrorism”...Nepolitano calls it “man caused destruction”.
I guess that’s progress.
...Justice = what you get when you go to court.
...in other words the guy could get off too...all he’s got to do is demand a jury of his peers...and given all the Muslims in Detroit, that’s no problem.
BS! He is not going to do a damn thing.
so, all of the gitmo detainees have been conversing amongst themselves, at least the almost 100 from Yemen surely have...I’m guessing this means we will hold them accountable in Cuba...right?
With free public-financed defense lawyers and all rights normally given only to citizens...
If you read further into the article you will see that, “President Obama went on to warn that all people connected to the terror plot will have their health care options eliminated and will have to stand in a corner.”
When told of President Obama’s response, Osama Bin Laden laid down his weapons and began to weep.
“hold accountable all of the individuals involved”
He will spill everything once we waterboard him a few dozen times. No Wait! Can’t do that anymore. Never mind.
All the while telling you how tuff he is.......obama is the enemy within.
so there is more than one isolated extremist involved?
Or is he threatening the intelligence analysts and the Northwest desk agent at Amsterdam?
He sounds ridiculous. Like a school principal threatening the student assembly for flooding the bathroom even as a piece of toilet paper sticks out from under his shoe
I’ve also been very curious about the lack of coverage on the heroes aboard this flight. but then again, if I had been responsiblity for foiling an Al Quaeda planned attack, I think I’d want some anonymity...probably much better than depending on this government for protection.
pillows. thats important. glad they fixed that loophole. at least for the last hour.
I’m suddenly reminded of that old Naked Eyes song
You made me
You knew you’d never keep...
Read them their miranda rights and move on.
I have no intention of flying anywhere, but this gives new resolve to that decision. They can't do it on International flights without doing it on national flights. If they do, they'll never be able to guarantee that one won't get by. Not to mention the personal affront of the issue itself.
Keep your damned hands off of me. You want to protect us? It's called 'Profiling'.
Yeah, he will do anything to get his golf swing down as he menaces Al Quaeda,
Bet if we looked art the “Security” budget, we’d find it was cut and cut and cut.
Plotters with an “s”??? Naw, that must be a mistake because the Big 0 said he acted alone. Oh, and throw in “allegedly” here and there. If it had been anything important, 0 would have spent longer than 13-15 minutes between the time he was finally notified of the incident to the time the motorcade left for the gym.
“Obama also recently spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to receive an update on a federal review of “detection capabilities and ... enhanced security measures” put in place since the attempted bombing.”
I would feel better if he talked with with Barney Fife.
That must mean a really, really long time out and no apple juice at snack time! That’ll show ‘em!
“””With free public-financed defense lawyers and all rights normally given only to citizens...”””
All part of Obama’s latest porkulus program to employ leftist/Marxist lawyers.
“”obamas justice will be to send them home, so they can fight again.””
Another poster referred to this as Obama’s “catch and release” program.
Obama also recently spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to receive an update on a federal review of detection capabilities and ... enhanced security measures put in place since the attempted bombing.
What we need is some justice against the muslim, illegal alien obama.
“Those measures include prohibiting people from keeping pillows or blankets on their laps during the final hour of a flight.”
So Mamas with little babies cannot nurse them to keep their ears from popping during landing...NICE. And sleeping toddlers? No blankie!!!
He is going to give them a stern talking to. If that doesn't work, he may even have them arrested.
So.. instead of “violating the rights” of young Islamic males with dark hair and dark eyes (which all terrorists seem to be lately), He’s ordering that grannies and kids and blonde models be patted down... to be fair.
...so he’s going to issue a “strongly worded statement” and take them to World Court?
Asymmetric jihadist warriors are not concerned and are definitely not accountable. The "attempted" act revealed by the insidious mind of the jihadist serves the secondary purpose to "strike fear into the hearts of the unbelievers".
After a week of thought, this is what the best minds in our government can come up with?
Who will protect us from our protectors?
Peace...what you get after you completely annihilate the enemy in war and destroy his will to continue.
Can you imagine the "justice" we'll get after NYC or Wash DC are smoking holes in the ground?
Did he issue this statement a week after the incident? If so, he must really mean business (sarcasm intented)..
ZerO has not followed up on getting the next panty bomber, but, has allowed them to learn from their mistakes. The next dozen airliners to fall out of the sky will be his responsibility.
Just like O.J. wasn’t going to rest until he found the “real killer”. And both he and Obama seem to believe such a search is best conducted on the golf course.
A Question is what is the Fort Hood Terrorist Obama is he a terrorist yet..All I can say is wait until November then you scum bags will pay at the polls..That is if you don't destroy the country with your terrorist friends..
Palin's son Trig has a higher IQ than Obozo.
Turn off this broken record.
Ah-oh, did anyone think to ask him whether he was referring to 'Social Justice', or the regular kind. You can't be sure of anything anymore!
The sentence for illegally hacksawing 3" of barrel off of a shotgun that came from the sporting goods store with an 18" barrel is 10 years in prison and a 250,000 dollar fine.
will be held to account
Ha Ha Ha they will be forced to write 100 times I will not do that again. Then given free health care and put on S.S.
“Words ——just words”.
Is this more of the Culture of Perversion by the Left or just another stupid bureaucratic rule? Since the last guy had the explosives concealed in his crotch I don't see this going anywhere. Either the TSA employee will not "pat down" that area, and it is therefore meaningless, or there will be some real showdowns at airports.
BINGO! The American public won't stand for this. This makes it personal and intrusive.
Yeah, right, whatever.......
