From the NY Daily News:
The terror suspect who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound plane is the son of a Nigerian banker who alerted U.S. authorities to his "extreme religious views" months ago, it was reported Saturday.
The father, Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, a former minister and chairman of First Bank in Nigeria, is shocked that his son was even was allowed to fly to the U.S., family members told the Nigerian newspaper This Day.
So our government knew about this terrorist and did nothing. And allowed him to board a plane headed to our country. Can you say you're surprised? I mean, Major Hasan gave power point presentations on the joys of suicide bombing and all our government did was promote him up the military chain.
Regarding the terrorist on the flight to Detroit, thank God for the passenger who subdued this vermin. Bottom line lesson folks: if you rely on the federal government and the federal government alone to shield you from religiously inspired maniacs who want to kill you, your faith in your government may lead to your death.
If they couldn't stop a Major Hasan or the Nigeria to Detroit terrorist, -and they were on CLEAR NOTICE that both were jihadists- what makes you think they can capture others?
Hasan and this new terrorist were fish that jumped into the boat. And our government threw them back into the ocean.
If you see something, you better do something, cause the feds see something and do nothing.
