The would-be bomber paid cash and checked no luggage on a transoceanic flight. He was nonetheless allowed to fly, and would have killed 288 people in the air alone, save for a faulty detonator and quick actions by a few passengers.

Heck of a job, Brownie.

    Dr. Krauthammer for President!! Puts it to you doesn't he? No holding back the truth. Tells it like it is. Jihadist is the correct term not extremist. Lets face facts and respond to them accordingly.
