    Fox News is reporting this breaking news right now. A man, a Qatari , is in custody for allegedly attempting to light something on an United Airlines flight from DC to Denver. Apparently this guy works in the Qatari embassy.

    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Here is the NY Times story on it:http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2010/...y-airline.html

    Apparently he was trying to light his shoes on fire. Are people going to wake up now? More than likely not.

    Well, at least he won't get accused of being smart. Unreal.

    After 9/11 and Richard Reid, there were zero attempts during the rest of Bush's term. Obama has been president for less than 15 months and this is the 2nd such attempt in the last 4 months.

    Air marshals took him down. Of course this is going to be explained away as an isolated incident and won't lead to profiling of Arab looking passengers. I don't give a rats all who get offended but it's time to start profiling.

    Published: January 3, 2010

    WASHINGTON — Citizens of 14 nations, including Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, who are flying to the United States will be subjected indefinitely to the intense screening at airports worldwide that was imposed after the Christmas Day bombing plot, Obama administration officials announced Sunday.

    So they're starting to wise up a little at least . . . .
