Probing For Our Weaknesses, Or A Dry Run, Or Both?*

13 January 2010 @ 10:41

I heard about this story yesterday on Fox News Channel but was unable to see the full report.  From MyFoxDC, Dennis Kraniak reporting [tip of the fedora to Michelle Malkin]:

Sources tell Fox 2 that a flight from Amsterdam into Detroit Metropolitan Airport was held on the tarmac after landing because of unruly behavior by some of the passengers.

The source says four men from Saudi Arabai were saying something in Arabic that alarmed four on-board Federal Air Marshals. The Marshals speak Arabic. A decision was made to stop the plane on the tarmac away from the passenger terminal and remove the men from the plane.

The Transportation Security Administration says the unruly passengers were interviewed by Customs and Border Protection officials.

But the TSA says the passengers were released and no arrests were made.

This is the same flight as taken by the Underwearbomber.

Over at Riehl World View, Dan Riehl has tried to get more details on the incident, but, as of 0710 this morning, hasn’t been able to come up with much because, as he puts it:

In looking for additional links after reading Michelle Malkin’s post here, it seems to me the Feds are doing a good job of making the complete story difficult to gather up. Otherwise, it would all be in one simple release.

Michelle Malkin comments:

Did they have visas? What kind? For how long? Who issued them and when? If they were indeed Saudi nationals, were they even interviewed by consular officials before obtaining visas to enter this country? Thanks to those confidentiality rules that protect them from any and all scrutiny, the State Department will get a pass again.

This, of course, is STOP for the Feds.  It’s been this way ever since 09/11.  A Muslim fires on an Israeli airline desk at L.A. International Airport and the Feds hush up the shooter’s religion.  Two Muslim snipers terrorize the D.C. area for weeks and murder people and the Federales refuse to use the word ‘terrorism’.  And the list of such reactions and obstructions by the national government keeps growing.

I think we’ve reached a point where we cannot rely on the government to protect us from the Jihadists who are waging war on America.  I think we have to be prepared at all times to defend ourselves.  The government has failed us, the law has broken-down thanks, in part, to our President’s refusal to fulfill his duties.  Therefore, we have to saddle-up and take our protection into our own hands.  This is our right as Americans, and our duty.


*They could just be screwing with us, or course.  There’s nothing that prevents the Jihadists from practicing Operation Mindf–k.
