Detroit bound flight targeted with explosive device
While Christians were celebrating the birth of Christ and praying for Peace on Earth, a terrorist from Nigeria eerily reminiscent of Richard Reid (the "Shoe Bomber"),and identified by a U.S. government official as 23-year-old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was attempting to blow another American airliner filled with innocent passengers out of the sky.
The suspect, identified as a Nigerian national, claimed to have extremist ties and said the explosive device "was acquired in Yemen along with instructions as to when it should be used," said a federal security bulletin.
This is not the first terrorist attack on U.S. soil since Barack Hussein Obama took office.
President Barack Hussein Obama, whose father was Kenyan, has encouraged "dialogue" with countries that have vowed to destroy us. It will be interesting to see his reaction to this attempted terrorist attack here in Detroit, home of the largest Muslim population in the United States.
