I Thank you twice Mr. Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab Farina Al-Kabob (I added the last two names!). Once for being an inept terrorist, and again for the reawakening of awareness in the American people that there are nut jobs out there like you who STILL want to kill to "get even" by killing innocent humans, to score 72-virgins in the process and hope that your earthly family will be taken care of by the Mullah! I'm sure that you all know by now I'm that Mr. Mutallab is the "UFAM" bomber who tried to ignite a bomb on Northwest Airlines flight 235, but was thwarted by a fearless passenger.
Now I see that after a two-day clampdown Airline officials say that in flight security rules have been eased. At the Captains discretion passengers can again have blankets ontheir laps (about the only spot they actually keep warm!) along with other items and can move around the cabin during the tail end of the flight.
I thought that the terrorists had moved on from bombing planes, but apparently not. And I will have to do some serious thinking before I take my next flight. The train is looking pretty good these days. How do you feel, are you concerned about your safety at 37,000 feet? Do you think that this was an isolated incident, or, like an episode of "24" was only a diversion as the real terror act is about to take place? Will CTU Agent Jack Bauer save the day? And why was the suspected terrorist, forever known as "UFAM" banned in Britton and NOT in the U.S.? Yes he was on the terrorist WATCH list, but not on the NO-FLY list. I guess he wasn't suspected of being THAT big a terrorist threat so he could fly!
Listen to a debate between a prosecutor and a defense lawyer as they debate the mechanics of a possible trial of the UFAM Bomber.
