Well, explosive clothing for Muslims does tend to do that.
Got a joke in the mail the other day about a Muslim king asking an ambassador why in star trek there are Russians, Blacks, Chinese and English, but no Muslims. The ambassador leaned over and said that's because the story is set in the future...
Obama orcastrated the fiction of the killing bin Laden and the consequences were almost the destruction of an airliner and the murder of thousands of innocent
Kudos to the CIA.
That’s quite a handy tool they have there, Al-Qaeda.
>>”The ambassador leaned over and said that’s because the story is set in the future...”<<
Excellent punch line
looks like we’re all going to have start flying commando
Could be, but Fox is finally "breaking" the story...
I’ve had bigger bombs in my underwear.
Good thing we released all those Taliban prisoners so we could have peace. (sarc.)
I guess we know how they found this guy now. Thanks for the info.
SANAA, Yemen An airstrike Sunday killed a top Al-Qaeda leader on the FBIs most wanted list for his role in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole warship, Yemeni officials said. The airstrike resembled earlier US drone attacks, but the US did not immediately confirm it.
Fahd al-Quso was hit by a missile as he stepped out of his vehicle, along with another Al-Qaeda operative in the southern Shabwa province, Yemeni military officials said. They were speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations.
The airstrike came as the US and Yemen cooperate in a battle against Al-Qaeda in southern Yemen.
I heard about this on the radio and their story said “President Obama was informed about the plot in April and directed the CIA to take whatever steps necessary to prevent it. “
I thought, “Really? What amazing, bold leadership.”
It would’ve been worn by an Islamist jihadist, therefore the screening process would do nothing to keep the terrorist from boarding the plane.
1. Was this a composite bomber?
2. Did he look like Obama's son?
Michael Moore’s underwear are a threat to national security and life.
Your post is truly a keeper...awesome!
Now will they start profiling?
Time to remove Washington from Mount Rushmore. Make room for Hussein.
Really? What amazing, bold leadership.
His ability to see through the complexities of situations like this is... stunning!/s
My first thought was to wait and see if Al Qaeda whines and moans to see if it was legitimate. Then my 2nd thought was I wouldn't put it past this admin to bribe Al Qaeda to cover for them with a wink/wink that Obama will be able to do more to work with them after the election if they just go along with the phoney plot.
