Heroic passenger helps foil attack on Detroit-bound plane

Full story: WHEC-TV Rochester, NY

An attempted terrorist attack on a Christmas Day flight began with a pop and a puff of smoke - sending passengers scrambling to subdue a Nigerian man who claimed to be acting on orders from al-Qaida to blow up the airliner, officials and travelers said.

I only wish I could have been that heroic passenger. I still would be there beating the living shit out of him. By the time we got to the gate, there would have been nothing left of that POS. Hats off to the passengers who didn't panic and took care of business.

No, luck saved the passengers. The bomb did not go off as planned. That said, International security at airports is a joke.
No, incompetence saved the passengers. This guy (like the shoe bomber) probably couldn't light a cigarette much less a in flight manufactured bomb.

<quoted text> 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.
First off it is spelled shmuck or s.hmuck if it doesnt get thru censorship.
Middle Eastern Muslims are not even half of the Muslim population- there are WAY more who are black African, Southern Asian, or Eastern Asian-Indonesian.
After 9/11 I predicted that terror groups will try to recruit those who are not what typical ignorant Americans envision as Muslim Terrorists- Arabic looking people.
Instead they will try to recruit Africans, Indonesians-Malays, Caucasians from the Balkans or Europe, Filipinos, Chinese who have a better chance of escaping suspicion.

Yeah, cuz he's not dumb enough to be a suicide bomber (it's a sin). After you tell him you're a Proddy Dog or an Orange and he'll blow you up in your car once on the ground. IRA invented the car bomb.

Obama:'We cannot fully know' motive of Ft. Hood shooter


http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blo...

President Obama says "we cannot fully know" what led Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to kill 13 people and wound 38 others at Fort Hood, Texas Thursday.

Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before the killings, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces the enemy, and opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam. His rampage at Ft. Hood has the markings of an act of Islamic terrorism.

But in his weekly address, Obama says, "We cannot fully know what leads a man to do such a thing." And while the killings were "heartbreaking" and "despicable" and "devastating," the president says, it is important to remember not only that Hasan's fellow soldiers responded bravely in coming to the aid of the wounded but also that "Americans of every race, faith and station" have served in the U.S. armed forces. "They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers," Obama says. "They reflect the diversity that makes this America."
