Officials Admit Second Man Detained As More Witnesses Emerge

Or so the article headline says

This is for the skeptics, so let's analyze the latest thing Alex Jones has put out, written by Paul Joseph Watson

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have admitted that a second man possibly carrying explosives was detained after last week’s aborted plane bombing attack, contradicting initial statements by the FBI that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was the only person arrested or charged in relation to Friday’s foiled attack."

The article does not say who these officials are. The article also says "Officials have now been forced to acknowledge that a second man was detained despite initial FBI denials after two more witnesses came forward to validate Haskell’s account." But the officials are not mentioned.

The article says that the FBI is still denying "The FBI is still denying that a second person was detained in relation to the incident, raising suspicions as to whether the well-dressed Indian man is being protected by the authorities and for what reason."

But the article claims that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have claimed a second man holding explosives was detained.

The CBP website does not say anything about it. There are no emergency incidents at this time

And the news releases only mention drug busts

So where is Paul Joseph Watson getting his information?

The article states that Ron Smith told "“It is unknown why the person was detained or whether the person will face any charges,”"

Mlive does not say where they got their information from, only that "A person was detained by customs at Detroit Metro Airport on Friday following Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's alleged attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253, according to a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

It is unknown why the person was detained or whether the person will face any charges, spokesman Ron Smith told"

I created this thread primarily for the skeptics of Alex Jones, and to hear some of his input. I'd also appreciate people who have some good things to say about Jones. Not to put the whole focus on Alex Jones, if anyone else has information about Ron Smith or anywhere on the CBP website or Homeland security about this supposed admittance of a second man, I would like to know, so far the evidence is not concrete.
