    Re: AP source: 2nd man arrested on jet in Detroit

    A second Nigerian man was arrested today in Detroit (Sunday 12/27/2009) on NWA flight 253 from Amsterdam.

    But no worries. Secretary of Homland Security Janet "the idiot" Napolitano said this moring that "US airplane terror attempt was not part of a larger plot".
    She also said that "the system worked" on CNN's state of the union this morning. Is it me or is this woman appear to be a bumbling idiot?

    Anyway on to the story. It is unfolding at this moment. I will update soon.

    So far it just looks like the guy was "verbally disruptive" and locked himself in the bathroom. There's no indication that after his arrest, he had any sort of weapon on him.

    But for the incident on Fri, I doubt this would have merited attention.

    The truth is we do not know at this time if the Nigerian man arrested just a short while ago is in any way connected to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab the terrorist arrested Friday. They are saying that he was unruly when he came out of the lav after being in there for more than 1/2 hour.

    Apparently this guy boarded a plane in Lagos Nigeria to Amsterdam then continued on to Detroit on flight 253. Its understandable that the pilot and flight crew are worried when the guy exits the lav raising hell.

    So in this thread you're saying we need to be objective yet in the Fort Hood thread you are saying the guy is clearly a jihadi terrorist. Nice double standard.

    If we don't know officially then we shouldn't assume, in any case. The court of public opinion has little basis in what is real.

    Did this guy kill anyone? Did he go in guns-a-blazin' screaming, "alluah akbar"? Is he connected to AQ? Did he preach jihad? Did he email radical clerics asking about killing Americans? We don't know any of that, do we?

    I see no double standard.

    You were ready to call Hasan a muslim terrorist and question the loyalty of all Muslims before we knew anything more than his name.

    Don't pretend like you acted responsibly and waited for all that information to come out.

    And, it turned out that I was correct. Huh?

    What did we know at that point? He was a Muslim. He had opened fire on American soldiers and he had yelled, "alluah akbar", during the attack. Far more than we know now. Yes?

    Get your facts straight before you flame me, buddy.

    And now you're just lying.

    The fact that he yelled allah akbar was not even hinted at until 12 hours after you made your claims.

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058348702

    The fact that he was a muslim was not known either - you just assumed that from his name and the (false) claim from others in the thread that he was a convert.

    When you concluded that he was a muslim terrorist, you knew this:

    -His name was terroristy-sounding
    -Someone had speculated that he might have been a muslim convert
