    I'm sure his traveling companions don't say his name too loud at airports.

    That's how it works. Buying a mass of fertilizer is not as obscure a manner of waging terror as say only practicing takeoffs in an environment that had never witnessed such mental illness before.

    As for some Muslims looking like westerners, my bet is our border control is fairly well trained in "profiling", and connecting dots of potential hotspots that could provide camouflage for the idiot delivery system (the demented terrorista).

    Not every asshole will be caught unfortunately, but profiling will help catch many. It's when political correctness enters the equation that people get killed, and that after ample warning bells have been set off... as what happened at Ft. Hood. They knew the guy was a brick short of a full load, yet they closed their eyes because of PC.

    The people who look most obviously Muslim. Hijab, beard, a tagiyah are those least likely to be a terrorist as the aim is to not draw attention to one self.
    Profiling are we?
    Who is to say the terrorista's won't use this precise cover because some think they are harmless folk. Sorry, but Muslims have been responsible for these dastardly attacks around the world and none should be sloughed off as harmless. If they want to expunge the profiling, then these people should turn on the idiots and aggressively and constantly denounce them... but that hasn't happened.

    Instead, cartoons, cartoonists and film makers are protested and killed.
    Let's say they have their priorities a little farked up.

    ROTFLOL... especially don't be suspicious of those with a record of terror attacks that kill and mutilate.

    The Dutch continue to question two members of the Religion of Peace ... about the planned extermination of a American airlines flight from Amsterdam:

    A small tidbit to pass along...

    In my line of work, a high-ranking Jew diplomat once told me...."They only need to be lucky once. Your people need to be lucky every ****ing time."

    This whole series of incidents sounds very ominous.

    Update: "Unlikely that 2 men plotting terror"

    The FBI probe of two men arrested in Amsterdam after suspicious items turned up in one of the men's luggage is finding they were probably not on a test run for a future terror attack, a U.S. official said Tuesday, casting doubt on earlier suggestions even as Dutch authorities held the pair on suspicion of conspiring to commit a terrorist act.

    The U.S. does not expect to charge the men, a law enforcement official said. The two men arrested in Amsterdam both traveling to Yemen did not know each other and were not traveling together, a U.S. government official said.
    That's all well and good, but this gave me pause:

    TSA screeners took a closer look at his checked baggage. It was then that they discovered suspicious items in his bag, a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, multiple cell phones and watches taped together, and a knife and box cutter, according to another U.S. official who had been briefed on the investigation.

    None of the checked items violated U.S. security rules, so TSA allowed al Soofi to fly.

    Kip Hawley, the former Transportation Security administrator, said it is not unusual to find items like watches and cell phones bound together on flights to countries like Yemen. He said this would always catch the screener's eye.
    How the **** is that not suspicious? Who tapes cellphones to pepto bottles?

    It was a dry run. They were testing the system; looking for weak points.

    It sounds like the FBI is saying that's not the case.

    Right, sometimes, the FBI lies, to calm the public, or for political reasons.

    There is absolutely no reason to tape a cell phone to a bottle of liquid and to place that in your luggage, unless you hate your cell phone.

    Which is more likely? This guy hated his cell phone... or it was a test run of what will set off security?

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    They've probably received orders from higher up to say that. Like NASA, the FBI's primary goal is Muslim outreach.

    Oh I know, it's really darn scary. Have you heard about all the death threats coming into MSNBC and Moveon.org?....Oh never mind....the death threats I'm thinking of are coming into Freedom Works against Dick Army, Hannity and Rush. Those darn Tea Partiers, going after their own like that.
