you know this means more time barefoot in the airports again. :rolleyes:
Lots of confusion with this whole event.
According to CNN, another diplomat is saying that this is a misunderstanding. The story is that the man was smoking in the lavatory and when challenged by an air marshal, he mouthed off sarcastically "I was trying to light my shoe on fire."
FBI agents say no explosives were found in the shoes of a Qatar diplomat who was subdued by federal air marshals on a United flight to Denver Wednesday night after allegedly telling the marshals, "I'm lighting my shoes on fire."
Looks like some dickhead diplomat mouthed off to air marshals and caused one hell of a scare.
