For those enjoying their Christmas, there was an apparent attempt by a man supposedly affiliated with Al-Qaeda to blow up a Delta Northwest plane in Detroit. The device, which was apparently some sort of liquid, failed to detonate however, and the suspect was apprehended immediately.

The suspect is apparently a Nigerian national, though I still have no idea how they're connecting it to Al-Qaeda, except for this guy's confession. I question, however, if he's telling the truth. We'll see within the next few hours, I suspect, because you know Al-Qaeda will release a video.

Is this the ammunition against the Obama administration!? Is this the downfall of that evil anti-Christ socialist!? I doubt it, unless you're actually that stupid. As far as I know, the Obama administration never fiddled with the restrictions on air travel that the former administration put in, so to blame Obama is to essentially blame Bush. However, on that note, I suspect our air travel to be a tad more restrictive than it already is.

Merry Xmas!

It was supposed to detonate over Detroit. Which makes no sense since Detroit has one of the largest Muslim population in America. So here we can disregard Al-qaeda unless he's a freelancer.

Somehow I doubt the average Muslim religious fanatic views a person of his religion who is liberal enough to live in a country like the US as any better than a Christian in it. Hell, they probably think it worse.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

There were worries that it would crash into south-western Ontario. It makes sense that terrorists want to blow up Chatham...

First off, I don't see why it would matter if the terrorist was trying to detonate over a highly populated Muslim region, and he was only trying to blow up the plane anyway. It's a complete non-sequitur to say that disregards Al-Qaeda.

Profile of the suspect that tried to blow up the plane.

This guy was very privileged in his life, almost an upstanding citizen. Gotta wonder what can drive a guy from being a 'dream student' to attempted terrorist.

You think the terrorist attack failed, just
Look at the failed obama admin stimulus, "The National Institutes of Health got $219,000 in funds to study whether female college students are more likely to "hook up" after drinking alcohol."

Well I have no idea what the stimulus package has to do with terrorist attacks, but anyway, that is ridiculous and mismanaged spending indeed. But why only point out retarded Democrat spending?

Republicans spend 176 million dollars per year on abstinence-only sex education (this stat is 2 years old, I think).

http://www.washingtonpost.com...

Under Bush and the Republicans, The Pentagon got 127 billion dollars to build robot soldiers.

http://media.www.jhunewsletter.com...

My point is that Conservatives are quick to point out excess spending under Democratic watch, but are hypocritical or silent about their own excessive spending.

The US non-Immigrant visa application form asks the following question:

"Do you seek to enter the United States to engage in export control violations, subversive or terrorist activities, or any other unlawful purpose? Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization as currently designated by the U.S. Secretary of State?"

https://evisaforms.state.gov...

The immigration process, it seems, relies on ruthless terrorists being honest enough to put a cross in the "yes" box to be successful!

That's because it's not the DoD's responsibility to do so. Off the top of my head, the CIA, FBI, TSA, Dept of Homeland Security, and the Dept of State have the most responsibility.

Among the many DOD agencies are the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), and the National Security Agency (NSA).

Even if this wasn't inherently wrong, it makes no sense.

Given that, you know, times change, it makes sense that there be new state organizations designed to handle security threats in relation to that change. Otherwise, the government wouldn't be going the job that is laid out in its founding documents.

In other words, you're a hypocrite.

All i was saying was that we just keep adding departments to were i am not sure who would handle this.

It seems like the DOD would play a part with all of those expanded dept. the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), and the National Security Agency (NSA).
