Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up plane

DETROIT (AP) – A man who claimed to be an agent of al-Qaida was charged Saturday with trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day as it was preparing to land in Detroit, officials said.

The Justice Department said 23-year-old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had a device containing a high explosive attached to his body on Flight 253 from Amsterdam. As the flight neared Detroit’s airport on Friday, Abdulmutallab set it off – but it sparked a fire instead of an explosion, the government said.

A preliminary analysis of the device shows that it contained PETN, also known as pentaerythritol, according the affidavit filed in federal court in Detroit.

Abdulmutallab allegedly told passengers that his stomach was upset, then pulled a blanket over himself, the affidavit said. Passengers then heard popping noises that sounded like fireworks and smelled smoke before at least one passenger climbed over seats and tackled Abdulmutallab.

Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up plane

I can’t say I am surprised. An Islamic terrorist tries to blow up a jet liner over U.S. soil, and does it on Christmas Day. Imagine that! And imagine the significance of that day had he been a bit more successful. Imagine what would have been the reaction in militant Islam had that event gone off as planned.

Abdulmutallab claimed to have been instructed by al-Qaida to detonate the plane over U.S. soil, said a U.S. law enforcement official. But others cautioned that such claims could not be verified immediately. Another official said the U.S. had known for at least two years that that the Mutallab could have had terrorist ties and was on a list that includes people with known or suspected ties to a terrorist organization.

But… But… Wait… He was “instructed by al-Qaida to detonate the plane over U.S. soil”? How can that be? I can’t believe this is the truth. I can’t believe al-Qaida would do such a thing, I seem to distinctly remember this being said: Obama declares US not at war with Islam.

Didn’t Barack Hussein Obama recently say: The U.S. should reach out to Taliban? It seems to me that was what he was saying. After all, aren’t al-Qaida and the Taliban nearly one in the same?

We’re not at war with Islam, and there’s no Global War on Terror.

The Obama administration appears to be backing away from the phrase “global war on terror,” a signature rhetorical legacy of its predecessor.

In a memo e-mailed this week to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department’s office of security review noted that “this administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror’ [GWOT.] Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’ “ SOURCE

I am not making hollow statements, I’m not trying to indict the President using false information and made up statistics, I am using his own words, and the statements of HIS White House, that is what drives the Libbers over the edge, when folks like me use Obama’s own actions, his words and his nefarious associations to point out what is rapidly becoming apparent to anyone this is willing to open their eyes and take a look.

Barack Hussein Obama is one of the enemy. He may not be the one giving the orders to al-Qaida but he is certainly not going out of his way to prosecute them either. And until that blessed event comes to fruition, incidents such as this attempt in Detroit will continue to happen.

Barack Hussein Obama encourages the Islamic Jihad against America: Obama: “U.S. one of largest Muslim countries�, and he lies about his TRUE religious affiliation: Obama slips on TV: ‘My Muslim faith’.

Expect continued attacks against America in 2010, expect them to pick up in intensity as well as in frequency. We have mid-term elections coming up and the warriors of Islam love to disrupt elections, just look at their actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Our Department of Homeland Security, and their associates, will work hard to protect America, of that I am sure. But will Barack Hussein Obama allow them to do a thorough job? Will Obama allow of protection agencies to actually DO the job they are intended to do?

I think not. Simply look at the ridiculous *rules of engagement* our troops have been saddled with since The Obamessiah rose to power.

    The voters that put this asshole in leadership of our Country are a bunch of Fuckin’ brainless jackasses in the first place. Many were a bunch of stupid ass kids, hollywood, immigrants, under-educated minorities that were trying to do the PC crap but what d’ya wanna bet that plenty of muslims squeezed their way in to vote too. This country is full of them!!!!!!

    Obama’s not smart enough to call his fuckin dog in, let alone the orders of destruction in our country-he’s no more than a piece of shit puppet that the Muslims are using to destroy America. WTF happened to America? How can the Dumbocraps proudly say they supported this raghead? How can Americans who put him in the WH look in the mirror every single day. They’re all ignorant, ugly, self loving and self loathing BASTARDS!! I feel rage towards every single prick who supports this Marxist SOB & I want them all sent out of the US on a chunk of ice from Alaska. Drift away…..assholes!!

    btw: what would Michelle’s Bi-A-ch have said if this raghead succeeded and blew up our Airlines over Detroit? What would he do? I cant help but wonder what his speech would be like-how many would see the liar for what he is?! Thank God it didnt happen, this time!!!!!!

    Well, Happy New Year coming up. I hope they read him his rights–treated him gently–and have the trial in Chicago at the court house nearest Obama’s house. I say lynch the sob.

  4. comment number 4 by: BobF

    I’ve read where it was 3 hours before Obama was informed of the incident. Had he been told immediately, he would have issued a statement saying it wasn’t an act of terrorism, just like Fort Hood wasn’t.

  5. comment number 5 by: TexasFred

    And that Bob, is exactly my point… Obama IS one of the terrorists, albeit indirectly!

  6. comment number 6 by: extex_cop

    Let’s see now…Obama has been on office less than one year and we have already had 2 terrorist attacks on US soil. One killed 13, wounded many more…and the other failed to kill anyone because of a screw up or actions taken to stop him. So much for THIS President protecting the American people.
    One big question jumps out…IF this guy had been on a Watch List for around 2 yrs…..How in the hell did he board a plane?? Not to mention how he brought explosives on board.

    I hope someone wakes up and takes that call at 3am before more Americans die on our own soil….are you listening Mr Obama???? I will not refer to you as President any longer until you start acting like one.

    Now maybe a few more Americans will also wake up and vote out all the liberal asswipes….so we can take back America.

    WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. government officials tell The Associated Press that the Nigerian man charged with trying to destroy a jetliner came to the attention of U.S. intelligence in November when his father went to the U.S. embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, to express his concerns about his son.

    A congressional official said Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian, popped up in U.S. intelligence reports about four weeks ago as having a connection to both al-Qaida and Yemen.

    Another government official said Abdulmutallab’s father went to the embassy in Abuja with his concerns, but did not have any specific information that would put him on the “no-fly list” or on the list for additional security checks at the airport.

    Neither was the information sufficient to revoke his visa to visit the United States. His visa had been granted June 2008 and was valid through June 2010. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because neither was authorized to speak to the media.

    My Way News – Father of Nigerian would-be plane bomber warned US

    Now tell me this nation isn’t screwed and bowing to Islam!! When the guy’s own father tried to warn us? And he still got in? And damn near took out an airliner in the process?

    I understand the Brits have been on to this guy for sometime and have forbidden him entrance into the UK. I sure by this time this guy has been read his rights and has lawyered up and will daddy will obtain America’s best to defend this bastard. We will get little vital information from this jihadist unless he likes to run his mouth. Maybe, just maybe had Bush been in control this terrorist would have been turned over to the CIA and by now we would know what he had for lunch 3 weeks ago. Now we get no actionable intelligence and if other attacks are in the planning as soon as these guys iron out the wrinkles in this new explosive more attacks will come. Gee thanks Obama—the president who cares more about a terrorist rights than protecting Americans. It is becoming increasingly apparent that he is one of the bad guys. Bush did occasionally get something right whereas this bastard, and he is that, is yet to get anything right.

    I can’t believe the last posting from Fred. The guy’s father WARNED them and they still let him keep a visa. What is going to happen?

  10. comment number 10 by: HoosierArmyMom

    I guess they were too busy passing a health care bill that wasn’t written, only discussed behind closed doors and therefore not read before passing, to concern themselves with whether a “known terrorist suspect” could board a plane with explosives! This is some Congress we have, eh??? And of course the only thing Obama will have to say is that we should not jump to conclusions!

    I am so sick of this Commie/Terrorist bunch in the White House. I’m sure that our First Lady Chewbacca is really proud of her country now!

  11. comment number 11 by: Vigilante

    I’ll wager a bet, that when the father of this piece of garbage warned us
    , he was told ….Now don’t start jumping to conclusions just come to the whitehouse and we’ll set down and drink a beer and talk this over.
    (sarc)
    Why don’t we just seal the country off now and don’t let this bastard, his bitch, and his two offspring chirren back in?? I think half the battle would be won right there. He could possibly land in veneszuela and I’m sure hugo would put him up for a few nights. Where he went from there I really don’t give a flyin F#$%^K I don’t want to see innocent people get killed but it SURE would have been interesting to just hear what this half breed bastard would have said. Other than what I just wrote…Annie Oakley expressed my feelings as well.

    Welcome to Obama Land

    The hand of God was on that plane. 288 passengers and crew (countless lives on the ground) were saved by an Dutch Angel and now it is revealed that the explosives were sewn into his underwear, especially around the crouch area. Guess what was blown off of him.

    And Theologians tell me that God doesn’t have a sense of humor.

  14. comment number 14 by: Mr Pink Eyes

    And let us not forget that Janet Napoliticano refused to even use the word “terrorism,” she prefers the term “man-caused disasters.” This is the second terrorist attack on our soild since Obama became president and as you said I think there are going to be more. This man and his administration are so weak on this issue that they can’t even call our enemy what they are. al-Qaeda is laughing at us and plotting.

  15. comment number 15 by: BobF

    I guess they were to busy on the lookout for those guys who may carry a bible, are members of the NRA, believed in strong work ethics, and served in the US Armed Forces. Those are the ones DHS is really concerned about.

  16. comment number 16 by: extex_cop

    Yep Katie….who knows how many lives where spared that day.
    Probably the only thing we would have heard from Obama is…how many jobs he created because of it… when they started cleaning up and rebuilding after the crash…not to mention the ones that needed to be buried.
    Plus he would be able to push his Health Care bill…look at all the survivors that would need hospital care and years or therapy after that.

  17. comment number 17 by: mrchuck

    Well boys and girls: it’s about time for me to fire up the air compressor and get the nail gun, and go in an “interview ” this
    nice un-willing terrorist.
    Be back in a few minutes with the whole story…….

  18. comment number 18 by: Always On Watch

    Sooner or later, with the laxness of our national security personnel, “the bad thing” is going to happen.

    And BHO will still try to sing kumbaya with these Islamic barbarians. Watch for it.

  19. comment number 19 by: Right Truth

    When there is another terror attack, it will be blamed on the Bush administration. The Obama administration will say that the guidelines we are presently working under were put in place under Bush, thus it’s all his fault.
