It still seems a common theme to terror attacks,prior knowledge ignored by the authorities...You would have expected them to take more notice in the post 911 era.

Especially in this case,when the warnings came from the guys Father...

Also the UK banned him from re entry-shouldn't that data have been uploaded to the US in real time-I thought we shared everything?

Well... I am somewhat wealthy, I'm not american nor british, I have a "world view" that could be consider by some "eagles" an extremist one: I do not agree with almost any of North American foreign policy, military actions, economics, et cetera.

Guess I should be on the "no-fly" list?
Guess I should be considered a "potential terrorist"?
Guess I am "an enemy of the republic

Rant aside, this storyreally seems strange.
It's almost "too good to be true" for the warmongers and those who are in great positions because of all the "terrorism histeria".

Come on: on christmas day? A muslim man? With a bomb? On a plane?
It's almost like a plot for a weak action movie, starring Steven Seagal or Van Damme.

Who comes up with these ideas?!

The ONLY thing that actually worries me about this entire story is the motivation of the PTB to be telling us all about it so soon.

In every other case of an event like this, an assumed plot, an interrupted attempt or failed attack, the FBI, CIA, MI5 and various other abbreviations step in and block reporting.

In a very short time we have various passengers telling all for the cameras, heroes telling how they acted, people explaining what they believe happened. There's a lot of information coming out about this, things that you wouldn't normally hear because it's deemed sensitive to national security.

Add to this that the BBC are reporting on it every hour, and that they are also showing a video on the site explaining and displaying in graphic detail what a device like this would do to a plane...

What the hell is going on?
What are the PTB trying to do?

Is it simply a scare tactic, or just a distraction from other more relevant stories, or both.

Call me suspicious, but the amount of detailed information being released and discussed is far higher than normal, and much more than would normally be permitted by the agencies involved in national security either in the UK or US.

Something is going on here, and I'm not liking this picture at all.

One does have a feeling, that more restrictive powers are going to be placed upon the law abiding citizen. TPTB are going to use this bomb attempt to do it, and to justify thier strict police state powers.

Those that are gullable enough, are going to accept it. Those who are not gullable enough, are going to face increased harrassment by the Authorities.

They do not need laws to do all this harassment of people and destroy individuals lifes. But clowns like this guy makes it worse for everyone. Then you get people like alex jones telling people to do something, and this guy does.

You have to wonder what sort of idiots some of these people are that destroy there lifes for nothing like this. He supposedly had a firecracker, and he did this on a plane, whyyyyy?

No one asks why do these people do such rubbish things, especially if he is at uni doing a degree, but that isn't saying much these days.

I look at this guy, and say wtf. It is like those arabs that went into glasgow airport with those gas canisters, and nothing happened. Why do these people throw there lifes away, and do something that will not work anyway.

This is why the ptb will win, as most people are really stup1d when it comes to this stuff. Why do you americans even think you would have a chance against real professional armies, if you ever did stand up. This is why i think the americans will never stand up. Go and play your games on xbox, and drink all your alcohol, as like this guy you will not do much.

This is why i always say to people, just do not do what the governments want. Stay passive and thats the only power you have, as when you do this it destroys it for all of us.

Your wrong for one I am not American. Also you know nothing what so ever about me, you basically have just made yourself look rather stupid to evryone else on ATS.

So next time you decide to post such an ignorant, comment, make sure the member you are targeting actually lives or comes from the USA. Idiot.

It is the same material used by shoe bomber Richard Reid when he attempted to blow up an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami three days before Christmas in December 2001. PETN is a colourless, crystalline material which is highly explosive and similar in chemical composition to nitroglycerine.
More sensitive to shock or friction than TNT it was developed by the Germans and used in the First World War.
It has become popular with terrorist organisations because it is small, easy to conceal and powerful. PETN is one of the ingredients contained in the plastic explosive Semtex, which was also a favourite with terrorist groups because of its difficulty to detect.
It is believed Farouk Abdul Mutallab had moulded a quantity of the explosive powder to his body, sewn into his underwear in a six inch packet. He then attempted to detonate the device using a syringe containing a liquid, which was later recovered on the aircraft by FBI agents.

Andy-It was PETN(a shoddy batch,thankfully)stitched into the guys pants-not a firework.
Same as the "shoe bomber" Richard Reid,who also thankfully failed.
Anyway,I know I would not have got past the pat down,if I had been wearing an explosive nappy-Last time I got a pat down it was damned thourough,but that was in London Heathrow,couple years back-during the "liquid explosive" debacle.

Wonder how this guy got through security?
A bribe maybe?-at least at Lagos...
