The officer said the man is a businessman who became ill during the flight.

But the real kicker is, on both interviews, different channels even, when referring to this guy, they both used the word suspect, not terrorist. That to me shows one of two things. Either a lot of prepping before ANYONE can speak on the MSM, or this whole deal is carefully scripted.
I mean if I stopped a dude from blowing up an explosive on a plane, burned my hand to do so, the word suspect would NEVER come out of my mouth...I don't know, I think this is going to lead to some things fellows.....
Any thoughts? Or am I looking two deep into things?

Food Poisoning Blamed In Second Northwest Flight 253 Bomb Scare
A second scare of a possible bomb on Northwest Airlines flight 253 Sunday was the result of a passenger who refused to come out of the bathroom because he was sick with food poisoning, law enforcement officials told ABCNews.com.
Officials gave an "all clear" message a short time later after interviewing the Nigerian passenger and determining he was, indeed, ill.

Now, I remember a thread a few weeks, maybe a month ago about African militia's becoming involved with Al Queda groups, getting funding and training.
This incident could be used to fuel the fire in order to get our troops or NATO troops sent into these other countries to quell the uprising of terrorism.
I see the same thing happening in Yeman as we can see today with Sen. Liebermans' responses.
Anybody else see the connection?
