A Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport with a pressure cooker, less than a month after a bomb using one of the kitchen devices was used to kill three and injure hundreds.

According to the article, the customs agent became suspicious when the customs agent noticed that a page had been ripped from the Saudi's passport.

I believe the information in the Fox News article is similar to another article on Freerepublic...

They do this kind of stuff every time they are caught...send in more to test the system as ‘innocent’ Muslims....further weakening our ability to profile them. They do dry runs just so they can cry to CAIR to sue..blah,blah,blah. It is a strategy.

Now they’re just effing with us, simply taunting us and rubbing it in our faces.

I recall shortly after 9/11 there were passengers reporting groups of Muslims boarding planes in full regalia and not speaking to anyone. Sort of odd, but maybe there were just testing the feasibility of another attack. Dry runs, as it were.

Pressure cookers are available for purchase at thousands of stores nationwide.

We might well ask what the test was?

This is the second Muslim that has carried a pressure cooker in a crowded place since the bombing that I have heard of.

The test? It is so they can cry profiling, call CAIR, sue and then our agencies are discourage from profiling any of them for anything.

You watch...there will be more...just like after 911, they purposely flew in groups...made Allah Akbar remarks...got up in flights when they were not suppose to...stayed in bathrooms way too long, etc. etc. on planes across this country for several years.

From the article:

“Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, urged caution.

“I hope that our government is not criminalizing people if they travel and have cooking items just because they are Muslim or come from the Muslim world,” Walid said. “I don’t think someone flying with an empty pressure cooker elevates to a level of terrorism unless the government has some other sound information.”

I live in an immigrant neighborhood where the biggest religion represented is Islam, but they are far from being in the majority.

ALL of these third-worlders LIVE OUT OF CROCKPOTS and PRESSURE COOKERS!

Fuel is costly most everywhere and pressure cookers allow you to cook things faster and better. This is the standard of cooking in most the world.

When they aren't doing the pressure cooker trick they GRILL things, and during Ramadan this neighborhood smells like an Indian restaurant!

That event is coming up in a couple of weeks ~

Then there are the Koreans and chop chi ~ they have any sort of get together and unless it's planned, huge pots of chop chi show up.

Yep...one of those things you can’t leave home without...right?? (Eye roll)

CAIR will sue...the TSA will fold..and soon you will see ME men traveling everywhere with pressure cookers just to confuse and weaken our ability to ask them anything. One day...the pressure cooker will go off because TSA or other agencies were afraid to check it.

See how that works?

Walid said. “I don’t think someone flying with an empty pressure cooker elevates to a level of terrorism unless the government has some other sound information.”

Then that person shouldn't mind having the pressure cooker checked, to make SURE it's empty, and possibly even the lid held by the flight attendants for the duration of the flight. After all, wouldn't he want to know the flight was safe for himself, as well as the other passengers? ;o)

Who knows ~ they're naive for the most part ~ about things you and I were born experts in.

We'd probably be as stupid as them if we grew up where they grew up.

Do not expect that people who believe in Islam are all that bright about anything else.

I wonder... can you yell “Pressure Cooker!” in a movie theater now?

I think it is more like psyops. The Saudis do something like the pressure cooker thing as an “in your face, what are you going to do about it? deport me?” It is the muslim humiliating the devil Americans.

Who is going to open it though if it is closed? What if the trigger next time was opening it? I don’t know..seems very problematic since that is what they use for IED’s all over the Middle East.

It seems to me this is either an in your face thing or testing and weakening the response by using CAIR to sue. Nobody has been flying with pressure cookers until now that anyone has heard of...the TSA and others checking these things have known for years that pressure cookers are used for IEDs.
