Threat in Montana forces evacuation of Amtrak train bound for Oregon
Oregonian ^ | February 15, 2011 | AP

HELENA, Mont. -- An unruly passenger who was removed from an Amtrak train later made a threat that led to the train’s evacuation, an Amtrak official said Tuesday.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said Hussein Abdi Hassan, 24, was removed from the train in Browning shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday.

While being interviewed by authorities, the Minnesota man “somehow threatened the safety of the train," he said. Nothing dangerous was found.

The train was stopped between Browning and East Glacier. Passengers were taken to a middle school in Browning, where they were set up with sleeping bags and air mattresses.

Hey, it’s February in Browning.

Just strip him naked, write “Made Terrorist Threats” in big letters on the front of his body and his first name on the back, set him free on Main Street in Browning.

Then just sit back and watch!

This subhuman Muzzie debris should have faced a Browning.

“Hussein Abdi Hassan”

Pretty common name in Minnesota, these days. ‘Specially in Minneapolis, in the Cedar-Riverside area.....

No one has given me a good explanation about why train and bus passengers are not subject to the same harassment as flying passengers.

My guess is that the terrorists don’t have the opportunities to take over the operation of trains as they did air planes.

Many of us would prefer that air travelers were afforded the same lack of harrassment as train and bus passengers.

The Blackfoot reservation is a “sovereign nation”. Well, unless they need money, then they’re American. Wait until AMTRAK gets the bill from the tribe for this. It’ll make that $58 billion that Biden wants look like chumpchange.

Totally not true.

Imagine the utterly dismal scenario...
100,000 miles of track and the welfare TSA army of incompetents running about...

From the Strib article......

“Hassan then asked where his bag was. Told that he did not leave the train with a bag, Hassan laughed and said, “Damn fools, all of you. .... You did not find my bag? ... No one will survive on that train.” He then resumed laughing.”

Who’s laughing, now???

LOL! My first thought when I read the article was that the authorities should just go on local Browning TV and make a public announcement that they had no legal grounds to detain the suspect. Show his picture and turn him loose.

Sounds like he needs a good ass kicking back home in about a month for ruining people’s vacation.

I’ve rode that route a few times. It’s beautiful going through Glacier .

It would piss off the Federals such as the FBI if Americans were to privately profile wherever they go.

All it takes is taking photos of suspected persons of interest to Facebook or such.

I remember years ago videotaping my kids at Disneyland and a middle east looking single gentleman was right in my field of view, I still have the recording of him looking at me with open anger.

Planes, trains or busses, profile the passengers, forget about Big Sis, she don’t care about you anyway, do what it takes to get them removed, a little lie won’t hurt, tell a conductor you saw a person trying to remove the heel from his shoe or something.

Its OUR America, NOT theirs!

You miss my point. The Usurping Marxist Onada and his commie cronies keep telling us how concerned they are for our safety. If this were so:

1. Why can anyone off the street proceed deep into any airport before coming up against security? Islamic terrorists have already “attacked” airport ticket counter areas. Also, in some cases (particularly with respect to smaller airports) security is just a short distance from boarding areas. It would be easy for a coordinated terrorist attack to overwhelm security and hijack an aircraft before airport security had time to effectively react.

2. Given that airport security (poor as it is despite the inconvenience and sexual molestation of passengers) makes aircraft hijacking more problematical, why not go after trains and buses where there is almost no security?

Aren’t you even a little bit enraged at our government for allowing a bunch of Islamic terrorist ragheads to terrorize our country for so long? Aren’t you even a ittle bit enraged at the cost of this clusterf*** to the American taxpayer.

And all this because the political class does not have the will to do what is necessary to get a real handle on the situation.

I understand your point. The security we see such as the TSA incompetents and thieves are simply there as a public relations stunt. The feds make a public showing of providing security. In reality the actual security apparatus has been shown over and over again to lack the intelligence capacity to avoid surprises.

We’re constantly closing the barn door after the horses have escaped. We have major unsecured assets in this country that a terrorist group that was actually intent on causing a major disruption rather than a symbolic act could destroy and affect literally millions.

They are starting to be. See this thread:
