"The suspect was identified as Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, who according to federal documents is an engineering student at University College of London."

"The man said he was directed by al Qaeda to explode a small device in flight, over U.S. soil, ABC News has learned. Authorities have no corroboration of that information, and the credibility of the suspect's statements are being questioned, officials said."

TO hell with these Muslim terrorists. Get the hell OUT OF MY COUNTRY!

I worked with some Dutch military while in Sarajevo and for the most part they were a bunch of blue haired freaks (literally had their hair dyed blue), but there were a couple of good ones. They mostly worked in intelligence, though.
The "Dutch Freaks" that contributed to your mission must be laughing their asses off knowing that the USA blew through 1 Trillion dollars making the Middle East situation worse. That's what we get for listening to warmongers.

Ignorance is bliss.
Several networks are reporting an explosive device...the statement was pap. But hey, don't let that stop a little Fake News love. Partisan is, Partisan gets. You have the temerity to suggest your comments were something other than partisan?

Pass whatever you're smoking.

Initially only FOX mentioned the connection.
Good to see you educated yourself before commenting this time.

Passenger Ignites Explosive on Delta Flight, Al Qaeda Connection Reported - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

funny how one source mentions a potential AQ link and the other completely ignores it... what were the odds?
CNN link goes to a headline of Explosive device set off aboard airliner I'd wager CNN jumped too fast but now all 3 networks are in sync.

As expected!

Whoever planned this stunt was sure hoping the USA will overreact and spend Billions more on the "war on terror"....LOL

The GOP will demand we scramble fighter jets. We'll double the number of Sky Marshalls. Let's attack Iran!

Now you can "terrorize" the American public with a mere firecracker!....lol
