. . . IT FELL FLAT ON ITs ASS ! ! !
Let's go over what we now know, from open sources:
A man previously identified to the United States State Department as a radical Muslim Fundamentalist with sentiments sympathetic to al Qaeda and intentions to travel to Yemen to MEET with al Qaeda some how FAILS to make in on any "NO FLY" lists.
Terror on Flight 253: Wealthy, Quiet, Unassuming: the Christmas Day Bomb Suspect
The SAME man, with a Muslim name - Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab - of Nigeria:
A) bought a one-way ticket to the United States,
B) paid for it in cash,
C) checked no luggage on an international flight from Europe to the United States,
D) FAILED TO PRODUCE A PASSPORT -
. . . and they STILL let him on the flight!
Better let this guy on the plane - whatever we do, we don't want to be accused of racial profiling now, do we?
The nicest thing we can say about this entire affair is that it is a case of Political Correctness run amuck. In an incredible attempt to defend this mess, the United States Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano establishes herself as a blithering idiot:
If this incident falls within your success criteria, Janet, then Heaven help us.
OOOPS - it looks like that story about no passport has turned out to be something of a red herring.
New evidence surfaces that this whole thing was possibly a probe or diversion, to examine our responses.
