USA-FLIGHT/INCIDENT

[Editor’s note: The following article is reprinted from the National Post.]

Top 10 Disasters of Flight 253:

[1] Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is on a terrorist watch list and banned from the U.K. His father has warned U.S. authorities about him. He has no passport, checks no luggage and pays for a one-way ticket in cash. He is allowed to board Northwest Airlines Flight 253.

[2] Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano goes on TV after the Christmas day terror attempt and announces that “the system worked” and that “everything happened that should have.”

[3] The next day, the Secretary goes back on TV to explain her words were taken “out of context” and admits that the “system did not work in this instance.”

[4] Napolitano is not fired.

[5] After staying silent for three days while playing golf in Hawaii , Obama makes his first statement: He declares, despite all evidence to the contrary, that the al-Qaeda trained Abdulmutallab is “an isolated extremist.” The President refers to him as a “suspect.”

[6] The “suspect” is charged, lawyered up and given the right to remain silent — instead of being treated as an enemy combatant, thrown into a dungeon, and interrogated about other plots, al-Qaeda in general and the whereabouts of his al-Qaeda handlers in particular.

[7] The administration fails to use the word “jihad” in dealing with this terror attack by al-Qaeda and to admit that the U.S. is at war with Islamic terrorists who are inspired by certain tenets of Islamic theology.

[8] A policy of profiling is not immediately instituted for airline security.

[9] Obama does not announce his decision to keep Guantanamo open and to stop sending its detainees back to Yemen .

[10] Obama remains in office.

    Of all the egregious errors the author enumerated number 10 is surely the greatest tragedy. It's time for Americans to call for Barack Hussein Obama's resignation.

  • kbond

    Jamie – you summed it up perfectly this time re: the Almighty O. (He is so NOT Almighty…) Os actions speak louder than words!! The fact that O took nearly 3 days to comment, and another 6-7 days to return to Washington DC proves his incompetency …If George Bush had done this, the media would have ripped him a new one…but in Os case, he again gets a FREE PASS to do nothing….It's another feather in the hat for O – the most incompetent President to ever step into the Whitehouse. He and all his cronies are communists at heart. A true travesty.

    Instead of our leaders showing grief and asking forgiveness for our military murdered at Fort Hood (it was known for quite some time that the Muslim killer was a significant terrorist threat), the government let us know that their BIGGEST concern was that there might be a back lash against Muslims.

    It is quite evident that the Administration are more concerned about securing the safety of Muslim terrorists than they are in protecting innocents. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but almost ALL terrorists are Muslims. As one person commented: Discriminate or DIE. It appears Obama and our government prefer that we die.

    Council on American-Islamic Relations: “Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” – Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).

    Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who “kill themselves for Islam,”

    Controversial Muslim group
    gets VIP airport security tour
    Feds show CAIR latest screening steps,
    sensitive counterterrorism procedures
    August 18, 2006

    The Department of Homeland Security
    took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

    On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad.

    CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a “front group” for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

    Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges.

    During the airport tour, CAIR was taken on a walk through the point-of-entry, Customs stations, secondary screening and interview rooms. In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system.

    JIHAD Against Americans is UNOPPOSED by Washington

    Muslim terrorist training camps that teach murder of non-Muslims and violent Islamic conquest of America are allowed. They are not considered the enemy. Homeland security informed America who are regarded as the enemy: peaceful, patriotic Americans – pro lifers, tea party attendees, returning war veterans who risked their lives for America. God help America.

    'Chilling' new video: How to slit throats
    Jihad maneuvers taught at New York compound
    December 15, 2009

    By Bob Unruh

    A new video released by the Christian Action Network shows Muslim women at a compound in New York state practicing throat-slitting techniques and assault weapons attacks.

    The video was distributed by the makers of the movie “Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.,” which documents how a jihadist group has developed dozens of training camps across the nation.

    WND reported at the time how Jamaat ul-Fuqra has built 35 compounds – mostly in the northeastern corridor of the U.S.

    …The U.S. State Department's 1998 “Patterns of Global Terrorism” report notes the organization “seeks to purify Islam through violence.”

    The report continued, “Members have purchased isolated rural compounds in North America to live communally, practice their faith and insulate themselves from Western culture. Fuqra members have attacked a variety of targets that they view as enemies of Islam.”

    CAN, led by Martin Mawyer, has researched Muslims of America for years and has provided its video to the FBI, State Department and Homeland Security. To date, there has been no response from the government, the group said.

    …”Gilani has stated he is preparing his members to the Soldiers of Allah, and he's set up the most advanced guerrilla warfare training camps,” he said.

    The organization's “Homegrown Jihad” video includes a chilling scene of Jamaat ul-Fuqra's leader Sheikh Mubarak Gilani telling followers to “act like you're his friend. Then kill him.”

    According to the Religion of Peace website, there have been more than 250 jihad attacks by Muslims around the globe – including two inside the U.S. – in just the last two months.The death toll from the attacks has surpassed 1,400, the report says.

    It is clear Washington have no problem with Muslim terror attacks and are committed to NOT protecting the public. With the full knowledge that almost ALL terror attacks are committed by Muslims, Washington is vehemently opposed to profiling Muslims.

  • 2maxpower

    I'm sure there was more then 10 errors but this is a good start Jamie

  • WFB2

    Treating terrorist acts as just 'alleged' felonies is part of the loony left's effort to 'define' war out of existence.

  • johncarens

    11) President Obama's characterizing this oozing sore of a barbarian as a “lone extremist”, in complete denial of the likely ten million murderous Islamists there are in the world

    12) Now that the admission is out there by the President that this was a “systemic failure”, that we have not scraped the failed system, and allowed these private air carriers to decide who they will allow on their planes, and who they will not

    13) That mainstream journalists continue to slap themselves on the back for being able to pronounce “Abdulmutallab” instead of calling him “Islamist Creep”

    14) That CAIR gets any airtime whatsoever.

    15) That we have not banned all Muslim men between the ages of 18 and 35 named Mohamed from Arab countries bound for the United States on foreign passports without a sponsoring domestic agent.

    16) That we haven't made it clear the next time one of these Islamist creeps so much as sneezes in our direction we will reserve the right to take out Mecca at our discretion.

    17) That the United States hasn't officially declared war on Islamic Terror, and that we will win this war, and that we will use every tool at our disposal to effect this victory in 48 hours, if need be. Americans deserve to be safe from murderous, religious thugs whom we've done nothing to except prop up their oil economies.

    18) That we continue to insist that Islam is not a warrior religion, and beyond the fact that it is a Monotheistic faith that it shares no common features with the American Judeo-Christian dynamic, not the least because of its humiliation and subjugation of women.

    19) That President Obama continues in his vaporous hallucinations to believe that terrorist slime give one whit about whether or not Guantanamo Bay is kept open.

    20) That anyone has put more than ten cents down in Vegas on the one-to-one odds that we won't be hit catastrophically while this pipsqueak is President.

  • eerie steve

    Obama as a fellow man and a fellow minority you need to do the following: rebrand the War on Terror to the War of Terror and adapt a Reynhard Heydrichian, not Hitlerterian scheme of total domination. Really, let's see what America looks like when it is Satanic.

    For all intensive purposes, it has been from Jamestown founding in the 17th century to Hitler! It took Hitler and Tojo to reverse the inherent Satanism in America. Born from an exiled country who started Math, ie the perfect Satanic naricissitic logic which operates at an every increasing executive function.

    We cheer the pope yes, but to a degree. We also boo him for denouncing the crusades. Yes Osama we have those type of religious fanatics here as well too. We call them Narcs or Vice cops or junior police. But then there is the SWAT, and please to god you do not want to mess with the SWAT, praise be to Jesus in the highest:

    On talk radio someone also remarked that the jihadist boarded the plane without a visa to the United States. Now who flies from Nigeria to Detroit on Christmas day with a ONE WAY Cash paid ticket, without luggage, without a visa, without knowing anyone in the Detroit area, without ever having been in the US before without winter clothes,….in the middle of the winter? It is amazing NO ONE said, “Wait a minute, this guy ain't gettin' on that jet!” Also he was not thoroughly searched or questioned while he fit every profile available for someone requiring extra attention. Thank God he was too stupid or incompetent to set off his explosives….and thus hundreds of lives were saved.

    In the book “Dereliction of Duty” Lt. Col. Robert Patterson states: “By failing to answer the threat as it should have, the Clinton administration was guilty of gross negligence and dereliction of duty to the safety of our country, which the president was sworn to defend.” (p. 132)

    If Clinton was guilty of “gross negligence and dereliction of duty” then what words describe the complete ineptness and disregard of the Obama administration?

  • bushlikesdick12

    The American people elected Obama to change course and make a possitive impact on our interests abroad thus defusing the hatred towards us gained through the Bush Administration policies in part.

    The solutions and directions that Obama is clearing making in a responsible manner

    .1 Distance ourselves from being Israel's alley:The State of Israel has been a huge problem sense its development in the late forties. It has been at war ever sense and the international community, England and the U.S. specifically, didn't accurately measure the consequences of stealing land from the Palistine People and therefore infuriating the Muslim world in general. The steps following distancing ourselves from the State of Israel is to eventually let Israel care for itself. We shouldn't attempt to make peace between Israel and its enemies.

    If we completely cut off our support for Israel, then we will no longer be attached to this mistake and if all out war breaks out between the Muslim world and Israel, then it is their problem and not ours. — enough is enough.

    I don't agree that we should be spending more or even near equal on Israel and their problems as to what we need to spend on our families here in the U.S. so that they can earn a decent living and be able to afford decent health care.

    It isn't right the citizens of Israel have state sponsored health insurance and Americans can't even aford to heat their homes let alone see a doctor.

    .2 Stop our dependence on foreign oil and cooperate with other countries that buy oil and other resources from Iran and all M.E. countries. — Then Israel will be surrounded by only sand n*gers that own oil that is barely worth the cost of pumping. There won''t be wealthy Muslim fanatics to finance the exploitation of the poor Muslims thus strapping a bomb on them.

    Just like Republicans that are quick to volunteer our boys to the slaughter house for the purpose of lining their pockets, the Muslims will not longer have anything to cry about — except Israel of course and they shouldn't be our problem.

    Top Disaster of Flight 253:

    [1] He was passed through an Israeli Airport Security company check point.

    We can stop right there and ask, “What entity ultimately benefits from this action?”

    Who let him on the plane?

    “In politics, the clearer a statement is, the more certain it is to be followed by a ‘clarification,’ when people react adversely to what was plainly said.” – Thomas Sowell, Townhall.com, Tuesday, April 15, 2008

  • Len Powder

    Mr. Sowell's comment never applied more than to the Obama administration. They have 'clarification' sessions at the White House on a daily basis. That's what happens when you sit on your brains instead of using them.

  • Len Powder

    “Those whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.” Electing Obama was the first step in that destruction. Listening to this kind of nonsense fits right in. It's not Israel and the US we should be seeking to ruin but the Islamo-Fascists and the Far Left which has ruined enough economies, countries and lives already. They never tire of repeating the same mistakes because their minds scorn history and its lessons, dwelling instead in the land of fantasy and utopian delusions.

    So dick likes bush or whatever….how long have you been living in Israel? How do you like kosher food. Good, huh?

  • bushlikesdick12

    My local kosher deli serves my favorite — fresh smoked locs on a fesh onion bagel. The locs come from either Atlantic or Pacific Salmon — not farm raised.

    So Jews don't need Israel to maintain their rich heritage — no, on the contrary

    They stand the threat of going into extiction by insisting on being so controversial. Jews have a promise land — the U.S of A.

    I'm sure we can afford to immigrate the ones that don't get along with the Muslims if we make Israel a state of Semites in general instead of just a symbol of David's people.

  • bushlikesdick12

    How are we destroying the U.S. if we don't participate in Israel's problems?

    It would be like saying we would be destroying the U.S. if we don't finacially support Mexico.

    The problems is Mexico are far more in our direct concern than Israel. If we stop spending the time wasted time on Israel's reluctance to participate in peacefull solutions to their problems (like stop occupying land that doesn't belong to them) then we can use that time more in the direct benefit of the U.S. such as fixing the Mexican border issues.

    I much rather see our soilders beating the crap out of Mexican Drug Lords than wasting our time trying to fight Israels ongoing list of enemies.

    The only reason why Al Queda is targeting us is because of our affiliation with Israel and our greedy corporate influence of M.E. oil.

    Stop our dependence on M.E. oil and stop supporting Israel — final solution.

    Without being a copout and hiding behind stereotypical foils, just answer the question without lying.
