37. Taking this story as written this is a bullshit "Terra" propaganda piece.
Edited on Sat Dec-26-09 10:06 AM by shadowknows69
Doesn't pass the smell test at all. One law enforcement officer said this guy claimed to be AQ? Really? One source and then several saying not necessarily, but you go with the one source?

"One law enforcement official said the man claimed to have been instructed by al-Qaida to detonate the plane over U.S. soil, but other law enforcement officials cautioned that such claims could not be verified immediately, and said the man may have been acting independently inspired but not specifically trained or ordered by terror groups."

NOt saying it wasn't a terrorist attempt, but this AP story is biased and it appears the WH is jumping on it to play the "fear" card. I'm waiting to see what the device ends up being and if this guy was being so heavily watched and was on no fly lists, then how the fuck did he get on an international flight?

Shouldn't we be invading Nigeria now as well since this was clearly an Al-Qaida attempt, but he wasn't trained anywhere, just inspired by AQ. So doesn't that make the whole country of Nigeria guilty of harboring terrorists? Let loose the drones of war President Hawkman!!!

Yeah... :sarcasm: on that last part..... :nuke:
