May want to look for and speak with the other 12 passengers on the flight manifest with similar names.

Any idea of how many of his co-religionists were on board? Perhaps an even dozen?

A switchblade is a necessity because you never know when you will meet up with a goat you got to butcher!

Riley says officers find knives and guns at checkpoints every day, but the number of weapons was unusual.

If the guy had a legit reason to be transporting the knives he would have discussed it with the airline first and they would have been packaged in his checked luggage, not kept in carry-on.

It's time to start charging these ‘dry run’ muzzies with aiding and abetting terrorism. Send them to Gitmo.
