Pair held after odd items turn up in luggage (WaPo won't print muslim terror suspects' names)
Washington Post ^ | 8/30/10 | Peter Finn

Posted on 08/30/2010 7:56:16 PM PDT by jimbo123

Dutch police have detained two men who flew from Chicago to Amsterdam on Sunday night after U.S. screeners found suspicious-looking items in their checked luggage before they departed, U.S law enforcement officials said.

Read the full article. The Washington Post muzzie-apologist writer pretends terror plotters on Chicago-Amsterdam flight aren't muslims by refusing to print their names. Not a mention. Also, no mention of the knives and boxcutters that were found in the muzzie luggage, also.

CNN doesn’t mention that they’re Muslims, either. Just ‘passengers’. Those Amish have a lot to answer for.

ABC News did mention their names.

A mobile phone taped to a Pepto Bismol bottle, three mobile phones taped together and three wrist watched taped together.

Gotta be a dry run.

Odd items? A marital aid is an odd item. A stuffed parrot is an odd item.

They were mock bombs.

One could say the Washington Post is odd, given they truly believe that by refusing to identify the terrorists by name, no one would find out they are muzzies.

ABC News may be finding out its ratings increase when it tells the whole story and doesn’t leave out important details like the names of the suspects and the materials they were carrying. As for the Washington newzpaper, the Compost is a good name for it or better yet the “Daily Fishwrap.”

They were flying to a Ground Zero victory mosque fundraiser in Yemen and joking about Imam Obama and Mayor Mike prior to their arrest.

I always duct tape my Pepto Bismol to my collection of personal electronic devices before I fly to Europe. Doesn’t everyone? Also, I never leave home without my box cutters, in case I happen upon some boxes that need cutting, and I am sure I am not alone in taking that precaution.

The article is either poorly written or you have to wonder why they were allowed to fly to Schipol after US inspectors found the items in their checked luggage. ??

The Compost article also failed to include “a box cutter and three large knives”, which was reported in the original ABC report.

So the WaPo article makes it look like these terrorist lead men were found to be carrying only some “innocent” items like taped-together watches and the like.

I wonder why The Compost failed to include that little detail. Sloth? Ignorance? Horrible reporting? Deliberate distortion? Trying to help out the Muslim terrorists? You make the call.

(BTW, I posted a comment at WaPo and noted the omission for future readers.)

Mohamed Nasser al-Soofi and Hezam al-Murisi. Mentioned a few paragraphs from top. No mention of religion; but of course,they could be Mennonites. . .

I read somewhere else that the reason for the Pepto Bismal was because they were having a case of the dry runs.

If they had a fling in B'ham, wouldn't they be risking their heads?

WaPo just added the names to the article. I’m sure it pained them to no end.

A marital aid is an odd item. A stuffed parrot is an odd item.

You're the TSA guy who went through my luggage, aren't you? Look, I can explain about the corset, the tutu, and the rubber snake. They were gifts. Uh...for Mom. Yeah, that's it.

That said. . .the headline is a bit insulting; in that it appears a smudge of story. ('odd items' turn up in luggage?) Kind of makes you not want to read the freaking story. OTOH. . .the MIA 'B' word is an attention getter.

The final insult. . .the last sentence:

"We don't know yet if these two end up being bad guys or are just really strange people," said one official.

For sure, IMHO; 'strange' does not begin to describe their appearance in photos.

Their story easily leads one to 'bad'. ..and much worse. And nothing strange about that.

????

The link above to the Washington Post does show an article with both their names.

Did that change from an earlier edition?

Did embarrassment affect them?
Did you imagine the whole thing?

A classic WP story. It’s just “ODD ITEMS” that somehow happened to “TURN UP” in their luggage.

Kind of like American Airlines Flight 11 “turned up” in the World Trade Center North Tower in September 2001.

They never quit; they cannot be shamed to tell the truth. The MSM is it's own 'protection racket'.

They are so pitifully, disgusting. . .

Depends. Figuring top Muzzie terrorists send others off to get their own virgins, maybe having a fling is ok also. I just want to know how you explain it to your 60 wives.

From the comments at ABC...

...Doesn't anyone care about the "box cutter and three large knives"?! Holy cow. These guys weren't just oddballs with a tape fetish.

And Pepto-Bismol isn't as innocent as it sounds: Bismuth is the heaviest non-radioactive metal in terms of atomic weight (in fact it was recently discovered to be ever so slightly radioactive itself). It would show up as opaque in an X-ray, like lead or uranium. There was method to their madness.
