    They should have given him an ass whoopin' before his diplomatic immunity kicked in because he might have been joking about that, too......

    Re: Passenger tried to ignite shoe on United Airlines flight

    Can we then say some people that posted before this might actually be racist? They saw a header, saw he was from Qutar and loped him with terrorists. Now if the guys white n named Billy Smith and claimed he was just putting a cigerette out on his shoe would people have instantly thought him a terrorist or blamed the proper authorities for trying to smear this guy as a bomber?

    Fran Townsend, a former homeland security official under President George W. Bush, said that the person involved was a Qatar diplomat and that her sources said the incident may in fact have been a misunderstanding. She said law enforcement officials examined the man's shoes and were satisfied there were no explosives.
    I want to know if the diplomat denies having said he had a shoe bomb. If he does then this might be he says/ she says. Note how fast the media cruxifies this guy? It is almost complacient with its guiding headers in catering towards promoting "MUSLIMS ARE NON-HUMAN TERRORISTS". Noone ever tried to ingite any shoes. There was no shoe-bomb.

    I really wish they'd quit trying to **** with the planes. It's getting really annoying to fly anywhere and apparently except for the first time; they're ****ing horrible at it. God damned it...this is just going to make TSA more aggressive.

    Could we please have the title of this thread changed to reflect reality?

    Yes, another big government agency trying to control our lives. What right does the government have to "keep us safe" on airplanes?

    ... I can't tell if you are being sarcastic.

    Air planes can be rammed into buildings, kill thousands of people, damage property, and traumatize the nation.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    So which is it?

    CNN says it's no big deal and he's been released.

    Diplomat in flight disturbance released, won't face charges - CNN.com

    While Fox says he is was heading to meet with a jailed terrorist, and is being sent home.

    Fox News also has confirmed that the diplomat was on his way to Denver for a consular visit with a jailed Al Qaeda operative -- perhaps adding to the tension with the U.S. government.

    Uh oh. Some of "The Plan" must not have went right and their was a reporting slip up. I wonder if he was actually going to meet up with a suspected, proven or non-terrorist? Operation Super Fear?

    Well, obviously something happened, or it wouldn't be in the news...

    As to what precisely DID happen...
