Attempted Terrorist Attack
I suppose it's alright to use the word "terrorist" because
the White House actually has. The terrorist embarked in Nigeria where security is notoriously lax. He flew from Nigeria to Amsterdam (where US Air Marshals are not permitted) to Detroit. Here's the first reporting from Detroit's Free Press.
We are now hearing he was on a watch list but not the no fly list. Foxnews is reporting we knew about his ties to Al Qaida as far back as two years. His father had at one time reported him to the authorities for his extreme religious views.
It should also be noted that the passengers of flight 93 with their heroic action on 9/11 changed forever the dynamics inside the plane in this and every future flight. The passengers prevented disaster.
