Al-Qaida group says it was behind jetliner attack


news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON – Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula on Monday claimed responsibility for the attack on a U.S. airliner bound for Detroit on Christmas Day, saying it was retaliation for a U.S. operation against the group in Yemen.

Federal authorities met Monday to reassess the U.S. system of terror watchlists to determine how to avoid the type of lapse that allowed a man with explosives to board the flight in Amsterdam even though he was flagged as a possible terrorist.

LOL. Now what? That pesky Al-Qaida again!



The Obama administration has ordered investigations into how travelers are placed on watch lists and how passengers are screened, as critics and administration officials questioned how Abdulmutallab was allowed to board the flight. A senior U.S. intelligence official said authorities were reviewing the procedures that govern the lists, which could include how someone is placed on or moved between the various databases.

"Why wasn't he flagged at a higher screening level?" Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "How did he get an explosive substance on to the plane? All of those are serious questions that we are now looking at."


Now that's a very good question!!!

It is just a scare tactics. The invoked Al-Qaida to shift our attention from them. As the other thread states, Al-Qaida was invented!

Nothing gets by us anymore. It may get by some of us in 9/11, but not anymore.

This plane attack made as much sense as the fort hood shootings, which is very little sense.

Just more bureaucrazy gets created and more nuances

so we must act pre-emptively and take our freedoms away before they do
Enter patriot act, FISA etc...

Apparently they do.

Well....they'll have to try harder than that. It's getting stale and repetitive now.

Maybe now, they are just saying: "HEy!! Tell them it was us!!!! We will take credit."
Or maybe its just another excuse to play "world police" and set up in yet ANOTHER country that needs us.

Unfortunately that may be true. Just another excuse to invade yet another country!

It has been 10 years and we still see the same pattern.

Since its just U.S. propaganda in your eyes, you won't mind me posting a link to their terror support site where AQ posted the message would you?

You're not scared to see the site since its just U.S. propaganda are you?





Psst. You can relax, thats just a copy of the posting.

I don't know why anybody would want to take responsibility for a failed operation.

Guess it is one of the few ways to get their name on tv.

None of this makes any sense! Something is up, all right.

Correct Sir!

I'm not saying it is but are we being told what to hate? I think we take what the news says as life changing facts?

Bahahaha

The headline changed and now it reads

"Obama orders reviews of watchlist and air safety"

WTF? Why did they change the headline?
