    This whole thing is quite suspect. Despite the FBI saying no dry-run has taken place. They have offered no good reason for why the phone was tapped to a liquid bottle and why these men abruptly changed planes to leave the country without attempting to retrieve their baggage.

    I personally hope this was an inside test created by the FBI.

    I think I mused earlier about how much coverage this would get.
    Is it just me or is the MSM pretty much ignoring what I consider to be a big story?
    There are some little tid bits I catch here and there but no real discussion. I first learned of it when CNN scrolled it on the bottom of the screen. Then I saw it posted here.
    I admit, I haven't googled it yet, but I have TV or radio on almost all the time.

    Obama was on the phone 10 seconds after this story broke to give strict instructions, not to connect these Muslims with terrorism.

    Were you sitting next to him at the time or is this a grossly exaggerated assumption fueled by partisanship?

    From what little I heard on the radio news driving to work, it sounds like one of several possibilities:

    Some persons or government testing the airline security for purposes of preventing terrorist attacks.

    Terrorists doing the same, but for purposes of carrying out terrorist attacks.

    No sane person would tape cell phones together, watches together, tape cell phones to bottles, bring box cutters and knives along, and try to get those items onto a plane - unless one of the two possibilities I mentioned were the case (or something I didn't think of).

    I remember once getting asked to open my carry-on, as I had a roll of quarters in it.

    Ever hear of hyperbole? Having a bit of a stretch to make a bigger point?
    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.

    Yea, I am sure that the Oklahoma City bombing could have been prevented had we profiled Muslims in that city. Sheesh!! Religions don't commit terrorism. Assholes do.
