Act of Terror or Overseas Contingency Act? Nigerian National Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab Arrested Attempted Terrorist Act

 

Barack Obama, so there is no war on terror, huh? I suppose the following would be classified as an “Overseas Contingency Operation?”

From firecracker to act of terrorism

Oh but wait, the White House says that today’s event was an attempted act of terrorism. The suspect was arrested, let’s hope he was read his rights.

The FBI is investigating the incident. President Obama, celebrating Christmas in Hawaii, was informed about it, a spokesman said, and he asked his aides to ensure that all measures are in place to provide security for air travel.

The suspect, Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, is a Nigerian national who claims to have ties to al-Qaida tried to detonate an explosive aboard a Northwest Airbus 330 on a flight carrying 278 passengers. The flight originated in Nigeria and went through Amsterdam en route to Detroit.

Passengers subdued the man and may have prevented him from detonating the explosives. Thankfully, passengers know now to get involved and prevent terrorists from committing these cowardly acts. This has all the similarities of Richard Reid, the shoe bomber.

The man said he was directed by al Qaeda to explode a small device in flight, over U.S. soil, ABC News has learned. Authorities have no corroboration of that information, and the credibility of the suspect’s statements are being questioned, officials said.

The suspect was identified as Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, who according to federal documents is an engineering student at University College of London.

He was flying from Nigeria to the United States for a religious seminar, according to his entry visa, which was issued June 16, 2008 and was good until June 12, 2010.

From Hot Air, the back and forth media reporting as to whether this nut/terrorist really has al-Qaida ties.  Also, they bring up an important point. How did this nut get a powdery substance through airport security?

According to US Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) , “Airline bombing suspect had ‘significant terrorist connections”

King, the top Republican member of the House Homeland Security Committee, described the suspect in the attempted bombing of a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit as a 23-year-old Nigerian national with potential ties to al-Qaeda.

A senior Obama administration official told ABC News Christmas evening that the Northwest airlines incident “was an attempted act of terrorism. We’re taking increased steps to mitigate any threats.”

The official said that earlier reports that the explosives lit were firecrackers were not true, but did not comment further on the nature of the devices. The official added that the administration as for now does not believe that the attack was part of a broader effort.

King provided the earliest confirmation that the suspect, whose name King said he had, might have been affiliated with terrorists.

“His name was in a database indicating significant terrorist connections,” King said.

      Leave it to Obama to down play “AN ACTUAL ACT OF TERROR”!! There was no “ATTEMPTED TERRORIST ACT”…the act of terror was carried out when Obama’s countryman detonated the device on the damn plane!!

      I know Obama is from Kenya and the TERRORIST is from Nigeria, but they are both from the same continent.

      “The FBI is investigating the incident. President Obama, celebrating Christmas in Hawaii, was informed about it, a spokesman said, and he asked his aides to ensure that all measures are in place to provide security for air travel.”

      I appreciate the use of sarcasm here, boys….his “aides”…hillarious. I guess you’re not smart enough to realize that those “aides” are the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of Homeland Security.

      Get a grip, children.

      SM: Once again a liberal thinking that they are just so much smarter than every one else. So you say those were the aides.

      The following was a quote from the Washington Post. Maybe you would like to send them your comment.

      This has nothing to do with liberal or conservative party warfare bullsh*t. The guy was on a list of people with terrorist ties and had been since before Obama was President. It’s good that there is such a list, but what is problematic is that it didn’t do any good! US security and global security should have made anyone on that list go through extra security measures before boarding a flight, and they dropped the ball. What’s the point of such a list if people on it aren’t put through the maximum security before boarding a flight? The suspect is the son of a millionaire Nigerian. He lives in a flat worth around £2 million in London. He was probably well-dressed, and, like the White House crashers, didn’t look shady enough to stop. This is ridiculous though, as there are plenty of rich terrorists — Bin Laden, for one — he comes from an über rich family that does business deals with the Bush family. Got to check them if they are on the list!!

      One of the largest group of muslims in the United States lives in and around Detroit. This guy was going to show-off to them by taking a plane down over the city.
      Hooray for the hero who immediately acted to subdue the terrorist and save the plane and its pasengers.
      It has been reported that he had a container of hydrogen peroxide strapped to his leg. Depending on the concentration of the material,it is capable of creating an explosion powerful enough to blow the fuselage of the airplane apart. This is a common chemical found in a medicine cabinet of most homes. Its concentration is two to three percent. Above fifty per cent, it becomes very unstable and does not have to be ignited in order to explode.

      Our government is only concerned about looking busy — not about getting the work done. So they put 550,000 names in a terrorist database, and then put just 1,000 on a no-fly list, and don’t bother to even give a second search to 97% of the others.

      Will our sparkling presidential couple fix this problem? Or will the Nobel Prize winner and his glamor-seeking wife decide that we should invade Yemen because it has al-Qaeda — and then attack another dozen countries that have terrorists (this one was in England and Nigeria before coming to the US).

      We are led by fools. Bush and Obama — dumb and dumber.
