Whether he is an al-Qaida operative or a wannabe is not important. He must be stopped. Thank goodness there was a passenger brave enough to do it. Now it is up to the government to make an example of him.

Oh look at how fast our Mo-ron President has taken action. We might get a responce in a month or 2 after he has thought about it for a while. Maybe he will think about it while he walks the sands of Hawaii--whos paying for this one??? Trap funds anyone???

Are you being facetious or did you forget when 9/11 happened?

No, luck saved the passengers. The bomb did not go off as planned. That said, International security at airports is a joke.

Tom.I believe you are right. The other thing is that if they want to take a picture of my big fat arse to keep me save then go right ahead. I am sick of the ACLU saying that my rights are being violated.

Just like the rightwingers said nothing when the rich were robbing the system and asking the taxpayers to pay it back! Just like when SCABS put good workers on the street..........

another bull**** sceem to keep soldiers overseas..the government wants americans to think its ok now to keep pissing out money like water. Kill the towel head and bring our troops home. If we cant even keep a terrorist of a plane what good is it having thousands of troops in another country try to protect our "freedom" obviously we SUCK at protecting america give it up!! stop wasting my tax dollars

This is just a game or show with airport security in Rochester and the rest of the USA. 95 year old men, 10 year old kids, Rabbi's, 35 year old white men with NY Yankee's jacket on all frisked and screed for a long time while a 20 year old Middle Eastern Muslim just goes through security with no problem and gets on a plane with a bomb. We can not offend people. You smucks you are offending me. I am an American and live here and have rights. I can not take anymore.
