    So they're starting to wise up a little at least . . . .
    Well, chalk this up to a big ball of fail then.

    Careful there, mister. He was clearly a Muslim victim of "cold shoe" who was simply exercising his right to attain foot comfort by means of the sacred Islamic ritual of Sole Lighting. Your lack of sensitivity is appalling.

    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.

    It's called a 'dry run'.
