Why do we need a smoking SUV to tell us that a terrorist attack is under way?
[T]he "no-fly list" is checked only daily by the airlines. When Shazad made his flight reservation by cell phone on the way to the airport, Emirates Air apparently was unaware that the "no-fly list" had been updated, and had no obligation to check it against the passenger list for that flight.
How -- in an age when every animal that can walk upright and has opposable thumbs uses them to "tweet" on "Twitter" and blog on "Facebook" and whateverthehellelse from their cell phones and BlackBerries -- could there not instantly be an e-mailed urgent notice to all airlines about Shazad?
Shazad has two things in common with Adam Gadahn, the California-born al-Qaeda spokesman and imam to the terrorist stars Anwar al-Awlaki: all three are U.S. citizens and all three are Islamic terrorists. How do we deal with those such as him?
The Obama administration has placed al-Awlaki on the "kill or capture" list, entitling him to his very own Hellfire missile if he's spotted. Gadahn is the first American charged with treason since 9-11, and has evaded capture.
Shazad is -- dare we say it? -- a Muslim man between the ages of 18 and 45. That population cohort, more than any other, contains Islamic terrorists. Pakistan -- at best a sometime ally -- has enormous territories where the writ of the government doesn't run. Shazad visited Waziristan -- in northwest Pakistanis bordering Afghanistan -- one of those territories controlled by terrorists and warlords.
Any American citizen who travels to Pakistan -- especially those who visit the areas such as Waziristan -- should be interrogated upon their return.

There is only one way to stop these BASTARDS! We must make it so very painful for everyone who was close to them that EVERYONE will get the message...”You put one of ours in the hospital, we put one of yours in the morgue”!
Sorry, Babbin. Terror IS the writ of government in every muslim country. It is the writ of islam. You cannot have a cohort (or a school, a swarm, or a noxious cloud) of muslims without having terror. And that is according to their own interminable fatwas, boring and drooling though they be.
