My oldest son spent 3 tours with the Marines in Iraq. He was there during some of the hardest fighting. One of the saddest stories he told was that the muslims would use little children, strap explosive backpacks on them and send them into convoys.
So it is not so impossible to believe that muslims here would not do the same thing.
My guess is that with the little variations between Islamic names, you find yourself with a list of persons with the same namesakes. It would be a little bit easier if they had matched this toddler's name with a date of birth. They'd avoid such mistakes given obvious differences! But why would the TSA care about international embarrassment? The agency is already a national shame.
Would have to agree with the TSA on this one point. If the name was on the no-fly list, the boarding pass should never have been issued. You would think the computer would catch that before letting them board.
We are the TSA, and we will not fall for the "incredibly cute" disguise. No sir, you're busted, little tyke!
Well, I can't seem to get all worked up over this. If the kid's name was on the No Fly List, then the TSA and the FBI were obviously looking for somebody with that name. Nobody in this story has mentioned WHY they were looking for somebody with that name. The fact that the person with the name was only 18 months old really doesn't matter. What if the TSA or the FBI got information that two Middle Eastern terrorists posing as parents of an 18 month old were planning to blow up a plane? This is not so far fetched. A few years ago when a major plot was stopped in England to blow up several airliners, a Muslim couple was actually going to use a baby to smuggle explosives on to an aircraft. So unless the TSA had a full explanation as to why this person was on the No Fly List, they were just playing it safe. What I DO fault the TSA for is letting the family on the plane at all. If they had any problems, they should have prevented the family from boarding the plane in the first place. Once the matter was cleared up, then they should have allowed them on the plane.
The bad thing about watchlists is that if you have the same name as a terrorist you get nailed. There needs to be more detailed information about every person on the list so they don't humiliate people like this. This is not acceptable.
I can't see any logic in this.
In this instance, I am going to side with the TSA because there have been numerous news items that Al Qaeda are planning on using humans (that includes even new born babies and pets). The way they plan on doing this is by planting non-metalic bomb materials inside the body of the either self aware suicide bomber or an unaware of the bomb mule.
Also, if this Muslim couple were so insulted, humiliated and what not.... why don't they stop pushing their head veils into our faces knowing how we feel about masks and hidden faces?
I have no problem with veils on the head only but not covering the face. Unless they are willing to take their face coverings off to show us a match with a photo ID card.
I'm with you. Muslims would have no problem killing their own child in the name of their dead moon god. I believe they stopped some muslims last year that were trying to sneak something in their baby formula? Or something along those lines.
I know what you are getting at, but I don't see why the KID's name was on a no-fly list. Seems to me it should've been the parents name if anything.
Al-Qaeda planting bombs in CATS and DOGS
Does the TSA think Al-Qaeda is planting bombs in babies going on airplanes?
I have a quote for you that fits terrorists like a glove:
"Nothing's unthinkable once somebody's thought it."
There have been recent reports regarding surgically implanted bombs;
It was K-Bob, I say that because I don't recall posting it. But if you have it go ahead and post it.
It's in York,SC. I told Gov. Haley about it and she asked me to email her office with the info. I did and they got back to me and said there was nothing they could do that it is a law enforcement issue. Law enforcement says there is nothing they can do. Bull to that. The governor should shut it down. There are at least 14 of these compounds aruond the country.
The guy behind it is the same guy behind the Daniel Pearl murder.
Was it you or Bob that posted that link to the mosque in S. Carolina with the

I hope they didn't get the idea from this scene
These people are sick and getting sicker !
I thought the "War on Terror is over"
Obummer is crazy if he thinks they will stop
Yep. I've been hearing about it for a few years. Breast implants, etc. They will stop at nothing including using women, children, and the physically/mentally impaired.
And I thought my kids were little terrors!
Seriously though, I wonder if this was just a case as having someone else's name or something
Yeah, I'd imagine. I've heard of mistaken identities before at airports. The TSA needs to start using a little common sense, though. Anyone in their right mind would know this little girl isnt' a terrorist. If there was anything it would be the parents, but they weren't on the list.
Right. And in the meantime, as the TSA agents swarm over an 18 month old, the real terrorists may very well be just sliding on by. I remember my brother telling me when he took his two young sons on a plane trip he warned them not to put their water guns in their backpacks. Of course they did. And when the xray scanners saw the first one, all the agents swarmed over to check out what was going on. In the meantime, the second child's watergun in his backpack want unnoticed. Luckily they weren't real terrorists with real guns.
This only proves that these TSA Zombies lack the ability to put one brain cell in front of the other!
