Nope, somebody MAD about ObamaCare!
A Rican with a knife? Never heard of such fantasy before.
He sounded so obvious to me, I thought it was describing a journalist trying to do some type of expose on airline “security.”
nothing to see here...move along....move along.
Puerto Rican Amish?
Are you sure his name isn’t Jose PolHammed?
just your run of the mill registered Democrat....
Don’t tell me, let me guess—a recent convert to the muslim faith, right?
Another misleading headline (a weak attempt to sensationalize?).
He was stopped at the TSA security point and no where near “boarding” a plane.
Also in his luggage were two lighters, a device that gives an electric charge via a wire when a button was pressed, scissors, matches, a flight simulator program and information about New York City, according to an FBI affidavit.
My guess is he is as Puerto Rican as, say MOHAMMAD was.
So..., the Muslims are coming through Puerto Rico now ... huh? Interesting ...
Hell, they can come thru anywhere.
Great tag line!
My guess is he is as Puerto Rican as, say MOHAMMAD was.
Dear Mrs. Dallas;
I see that you are a skeptic when it comes to the ROP. Shame on you.
For your penance, visit: http://www.actforamerica.org/
The system worked.
Flight was Jet Blue 860.
He was going to plant the weapons on the flight for a follow-up terrorist attack on the next flight on the same plane.
Or he was going to transfer the weapons to terrorist collaborators in the Boston air terminal.
Good work by the TSA.
Does anyone know how to find out the destination of this plane after it landed in Boston? Was it going to NYC?
looking for a new soft point-of-entry (now that they’re watching Portland, Maine)
I guess you got that right ... :-)
But I never thought the A-10 flight simulator on my laptop for entertainment could be considered a threat...
You know ... years ago (well before 9/11), I used to crash my plane (in my Flight Simulator) into the World Trade Building in New York, just for the heck of it ... LOL ...
Nowadays, I wouldn't dare do it, even on my computer, for fear that Obama would declare me a terrorist ... :-)
Probing the system, maybe.
What does ROP mean?
Flight is code share with:
Religion Of Peace (aka Islam)
Well, if you've only learned to fly straight or into buildings, and have no interest in learning to land the aircraft ........
DOJ press release here:
ROP = Religion of Peace. Others have invented much more descriptive titles for Muslims but I want to keep it clean and socially acceptable.
Pol was waiting to be assigned a public defender. Detention and bail hearings were scheduled for Friday.
The U.S. attorney’s office in San Juan said Pol was originally from Mayaguez in western Puerto Rico but now lives in Rhode Island. It did not release his hometown in Rhode Island.
...and a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and a thing which tells time.
IN A SEPARATE CASE...
DULLES CBP ARRESTS ALLEGED BOLIVIAN IMPOSTOR WITH PUERTO RICO BIRTH CERTIFICATE

Sterling, Va., - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Bolivian man at Washington-Dulles International Airport on Thursday on allegations that he was an impostor pretending to be a U.S. citizen.
Officers arrested Juan Condori Sejas, 51, after he attempted to use a Puerto Rico birth certificate and a U.S. Social Security Card to acquire a Customs seal on his Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport employee ID. A Customs seal allows bearers access to restricted security areas.
Customs and Border Protection officers are proficient at detecting fraudulent identity documents and suspected that the birth certificate that Conderi Sejas possessed is a fake, said Christopher Hess, CBP port director for the Port of Washington, D.C. This expertise is a significant deterrent to keeping illegal aliens, narco-traffickers and terrorists away from airport employment positions that could facilitate the smuggling of humans, weapons, currency or narcotics into the United States, and it helps to keep airline passengers safe.
During routine questioning, Condori Sejas allegedly claimed to have crossed the U.S. border with Mexico in 2006 without CBP inspection and that he purchased the birth certificate and social security card from a human trafficker.
The U.S. Attorneys Office for the Eastern District of Virginia is prosecuting Condori Sejas for immigration fraud.
CBP placed a detainer on Condori Sejas, who will likely be removed from the United States should he be convicted. Foreign nationals who violate U.S. immigration law may be barred from returning to the U.S. for a period of no less than five years.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
THANK YOU for the ping Jimbo123.

Man Arrested For Attempting to Carry Dangerous Weapons On An Aircraft
SAN JUAN, P.R., May 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A complaint was filed late yesterday against Jose Pol for attempting to carry dangerous weapons on an aircraft, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez-Velez, U.S. Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico, announced today. The defendant, who was going to board Jet Blue flight number 860, departing from Carolina, P.R., to Boston, was carrying a stun gun, a pepper spray canister, four box cutters and a switch blade knife.
Pol was in line to pass through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) check point at the Luis Munoz Marin Airport in Carolina, P.R. The defendant was carrying two pieces of luggage, one containing a laptop and the other containing items which could be used to threaten, incapacitate, harm, injure or cause the death of the security personnel on board the aircraft, and/or endanger the lives of the crew members and passengers on board the flight.
The TSA Officer asked the defendant to accompany him to the TSA security office. Pol voluntarily went and waited in the room until FBI agents arrived and took custody of him.
"Officers then discovered the knives as well as two lighters, six batteries, a button device with a wire that gives off an electric charge when pressed, a flight simulator program and New York City information cards."
I don't recall going to NY (that Cessna was s-l-o-w) but I do remember circling the VAB and the Shuttle on its pad at Cape Canaveral (Kennedy MSFC).
AFAIK, that Cessna is still sitting at the refueling station on Martha's Vineyard (or is it Nantucket?)...... '-)
Puerto Rican Officials Scrap Millions of Birth Certificates

(April 21) — In a dramatic bid to end fraud, identity theft and illegal immigration, Puerto Rico is voiding all birth certificates issued before July 1, 2010 — forcing more than 5 million people to apply for new ones.
The move will “protect the identity of all Puerto Ricans born on the island, and at the same time help the federal government with national security issues,” Luis Balzac, spokesman for the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration, said in a phone interview with AOL News.
According to the U.S. departments of State and Homeland Security, Puerto Rican birth certificates account for about 40 percent of all cases of passport fraud every year, ABC reports.
“There are so many [birth certificates] floating around. ... A lot fall into the hands of unscrupulous individuals,” Rosemary Macray, a State Department Bureau of Consular Affairs spokeswoman, told ABC. “We’re very pleased that the [Puerto Rican] government has taken on this initiative.”
Under the law, which was passed in December, some 4 million island residents and another 1.2 Puerto Ricans living in the United States will lose their current birth certificates. They must apply for new ones that have been redesigned to be less susceptible to fraud.

>>”...and New York City information cards...”
If this is FBI speak meaning “instrument approach plates,” that raises the incident to a whole new level. He can no longer be considered a simple minded fool.
He is either intending something nefarious, on his own; or he was being used as a mule for Terrorists. How many people can use a computer and still be unaware of what cannot be carried on an aircraft? Are there no Box Cutters for sale in Pawtucket? They need to be imported?
