WASHINGTON - The man removed from an Aeromexico flight bound for Mexico City Sunday was the subject of a terror warning issued for the U.S.-Mexico border last week, senior U.S. counterterrorism officials told NBC News on Monday.

Homeland Security had asked law enforcement in Houston to be on the lookout for a suspected member of al-Shabaab, an al-Qaida ally based in Somalia, early last week, the sources said

The man was thought to be headed for the United States via Mexico.

Yah, but bloodthirsty jihad is still no reason to protect our southern borders. Arizona is racist, dammit!

Houston is chock full of al-quaeda looking types of slimy greasy middle easterners who speak no english and sit around the coffee shops smoking like chimneys and glaring at everybody. I glare back and make them feel unwelcome. They have penetrated Houston in a big way.

See! We don’t need to secure the border for security reasons. Our intelligence enables us to catch them in the sky before they land.

The flight originated in France.

The flight's destination was Mexico.

The airline was Mexican.

The guy was on a U.S. no-fly list.

The flight was diverted to Canada and the guy will have a court hearing in Canada.

Do you think the DOJ will apply for extradition? What would the charges be?

From the text:

Abdirahman Al Gaal. Member of Alshabaab a Somalian ally of Al Qaida. Yet it is stated he has resident status in the United States. Married to an American woman.

Strange enough with this information. Now since his court date is on Wednesday, we will have to wait patiently. I hope he is shipped back to France myself.

He hasn't had the time yet to completely undo all the intelligence apparatus GWB set up around the globe. But, he's working on it.

Is Houston another sanctuary city? Sounds like a target with all of the energy offices and surrounding industrial sites.

“They have penetrated Houston in a big way.”

Any neighborhoods in particular?

Brennan said jihad is a normal religious obligation that has nothing to do with killing innocents.

“Gaall is a Somali national but holds resident status in the United States, the counterterrorism sources said. His wife is an American citizen, said one official. He did not have the couple’s address in the United States.”

Oy.

I remember reading the story last week about the BOLO for the Somali in Houston, but now I am throughly confused. They (the Feds) thought he was already in the US via the Mexican border. Now, we learn that he was not even on the continent? And, they already had him across the border and in Houston last week? If people do not see a problem with this picture, we are in greater danger than I thought.

On the supposed wife of Gaall, you commented.

Ship her sorry ass to Somalia on the next plane.

Ah yes, the delightful encounter with an exotic culture. The heady experience of living just like old time pioneers did in early America. , This being close to the soil. She could go on Oprah later. She could trill about the "respect" the female has there, men doffing their hats etc. (chuckle).

The islamists in Houston generally hang out in the Galleria area (Palestinians protest there sometimes) or in the area West of the Galleria along Westheimer and Richmond and especially around Voss where the islamic school is. They are also building a big mosque near the west side of downtown, along Allen Parkway and Montrose. They are everywhere around the universities too.

Here at the link is an article about one who got caught http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/houston-another-muslim-terrorist-support-trial/

According to this Debbie Schlussel article, the Underwear Bomber came to Houston for 11 days in 2008. The Muslim Brotherhood is active in Houston too. http://www.debbieschlussel.com/14285/why-was-umar-abdulmutallab-in-houston-whom-did-he-visit-there-what-did-he-plan/
