    I think it points out that we shouldn't judge until we have all the facts. It's an excellent example of that. We've no reason to believe it happened here -- but neither, as usual, do we have all the facts.

    And as your comment show, you again want people to change due to other people's emotional reactions. This is America, a country built on concepts of rights. Stop trying to take away people's rights because other people react irrationally.
    There is no guaranteed right to fly, Redress. Further, we've been taking away people's rights for a loooong time now because other pople react irrationally...including making marijuana illegal -- and the classic "No Shoes No Shirt No Service."

    Plane diverted to NM due to security threat; Delta Flight 1706

    Plane diverted to Sunport due to security threat | KOB.com

    A Delta flight en route to San Diego from Detroit was diverted to Sunport in Albuquerque Sunday morning due to a security threat.

    Delta released the following statement Sunday morning:

    Delta flight 1706, scheduled service from Detroit to San Diego, diverted to Albuquerque out of an abundance of caution due to a security concern. The flight landed safely and Delta is cooperating directly with authorities. Delta's first and foremost priority is the safety and security of our customers and crew. The flight was operated on 737 equipment with 137 passengers and six crew members.
    Perhaps a couple bigots at the helm.

    Perhaps not.

    I understand the fear after all that has happened over the past few years. However is it necessary to pull two individuals who have passed security off a plane, because they've made some people uncomfortable?
    thoughts?
    Yes, it's necessary and justified. Anyone who is insensitive enough to travel by air in the U.S., dressed like that, deserves extra scrutiny. They were probably taunting the American public.

    Yes, a protracted ambiguity really helps your case. It actually does. Since the only argument people have in this thread is that 'we don't know' that the imams going to an islamophobia rally weren't stirring up a plane on purpose. Are you all serious. Imams going to a session on islamophobia... acting up in a plane. You all couldn't read the irony before you made your arguments? This was probably case #98210981018929367120987430198429038 of xenophobia in action here.

    We have spent billions of dollars on airport security and all we have done is make it harder to hijack or blow up a plane in flight. So what???

    There is only one advantage to blowing up a plane in flight. It pretty much insures the death of all on board with a relatively small amount of explosive. Secondly, it creates insecurity with security protocols....again big deal.

    There are so many areas that are wide open where large numbers of people gather with next to no security that safety is a ****ing joke. Shopping malls, schools, sporting events, theaters, etc ...Whats simple is that you wouldn't even have to be suicide bomber. All the perp needs is about 60 secs to set it down/activate a fuse, then walk away and be out of the blast zone

    Fear is taking over the country. plain and simple

    Hmmmmmmmmm... paradoxical post.

    One flight returns to the gates and "fear is taking over the country. plain and simple."

    Yet...

    You admit security in hosts of other areas is lax.

    Re: Two imams pulled from plane bound for North Carolina

    You know what makes me uncomfortable on a plane? Babies and toddlers. They scream and cry and kick the seats. Nice to know that all I have to do is speak up, tell the flight crew that I'm uncomfortable with them, and they'll all be kicked off the plane for me.

    Sweet!

    Shoot, sometimes I really wish this was true. While we're at it, let's implement this for movie theaters as well. Let's all strike at toddler terrorism together.

    As an aside (and really more on topic), I've seen people pulled off because the people around them complained they smelled bad. Didn't that violate the rights of the malodorous?

    TSA and Airlines can prohibit to fly everybody who is drunken or suspicious., why not two imams?
