“A passenger was reportedly pulled off of an Emirates Airlines aircraft..”

Routine procedure now. Let the terrorist get on the plane and possibly endanger everyone, then pull them off as soon as it's discovered someone sceeewruud up.

Ideally this should be noticed BEFORE the schmuck gets on the plane. That’s why we have a list.

How incompetant are the staff at Emirates Airlines?

The no-fly list is now to be updated every 2 hours-—are they paying any attention to the rules?

How about giving Emirates a “time out” from flying into & out of the USA for a month or so? Something has to get their attention.

There will now be lots of false alarms. The government needs to demonstrate that it is doing its job. And the folks will be lulled into a false sense of security.

Good thing John Smith is not on the list.

Exactly. Our Homeland Security chief allows persons on the no-fly list to actually board international flights.

Napolitano - Incompetent from Day 1.

All they have to do is to buy the ticket 1:45 before the flight.
Why is the no fly list not in real time??

Both Clinton and Obama had/have one guiding principle when they make appointments. “Appoint someone dumber than me to the position. That way they will never challenge me.”

In Clinton’s case, you really had to be looking hard to find someone dumber. In Obama’s case, it’s almost impossible.

Napolitano is definitely eminently qualified to hold her position. (using the above standard)

We’re in agreement, to be sure.

“We were nothing but lucky to catch the NY Bomber.”

Is this another attack today? This was breaking on the link.

Bomb Scare On NYC Bound Bus

Snip: Police Capt. Mike Schwartz said someone on the bus called 911 and reported an explosive device after arrival in Portsmouth. He says police are in contact with people on the bus, but it was unclear why they remained on board.
The driver, who police say got off the bus, is being questioned.

Looks like a new one to me.

I honestly don’t understand why we continue to try to keep it ‘business as usual’ for travelers between terrorist states and our nation. Wouldn’t a moratorium make some sense?

If the Western nations simply froze all travel from terrorist states, it would cause Pakistan and other nations to deal with the terrorists in their midst, or go belly up.

Of course we’ve given them somewhere else to go, by building up China, one of the serious reasons why we never should have done this.
