Nigerian man charged in Christmas airliner attack

DETROIT – A 23-year-old Nigerian man who claimed ties to al-Qaida was charged Saturday with trying to destroy a Detroit-bound airliner, just a month after his father warned U.S. officials of concerns about his son's religious beliefs.

The suspect claimed to have received training and instructions from al-Qaida operatives in Yemen, a law enforcement official said on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.


Just a month after US officals were warned about this guy? What the heck ?

  • They were warned by his father who had no details. He comes from a prominent Nigerian family. The father went to teh US embassy and told of his sons newfound "religious beliefs"...no info of an attack.  He has been on a FBI watch list for about 2 years, but again nothing specific...I guess like the Ft Hood shooter.....Seems the FBI and CIA are just letting these guys move about freely UNTIL something happens.....


    Also, Where did this man board the flight? Shouldn't THEY be held responsible??

  • Another government official said Abdulmutallab's father went to the embassy in Abuja with his concerns, but did not have any specific information that would put him on the "no-fly list" or on the list for additional security checks at the airport.

    Neither was the information sufficient to revoke his visa to visit the United States. His visa had been granted June 2008 and was valid through June 2010. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because neither was authorized to speak to the media.

  • BS isn't it. My dad was on the no-fly list and we had no idea why because he travels for work often...and he is your everyday, run of the mill, white Christian man. But then some pyscho islamic terrorist who's father warned the government about him is just free to board planes like nothing's wrong? That's the democrats for you though. Let's wait until something DOES happen before we do something about it because God forbid they actually checked this guy out or put restrictions on him because we wouldn't want him crying racism or anything right? It's all about making sure the minorities feel respected and treated properly...even if they are a extremist terrorist we wouldn't want to make them feel out of place.

  • Anon 11 no religion doesn't suck, But when you do harm to another in the name of it thats when its no religion and a CULT. But there are those on here who will stick up for these barbaric animals every damn time and scream that islam is a peaceful religion. Its sick and outright insane to defend these creatures.

    I posted a perfect example of one of these barbaric monsters holiday. Ashura, its a celebration for the grandson's death of their leader. During the festive activities they beat themselves in the head with a SWORD in rememberence of his death, because they didn't save him. I mean how barbaric is that? Violence is all they know, Always have and always will. NO matter how long they live. And we are in their country to try and civilize them? It won't ever happen, They are uncivilized animals and they are killing our soldiers daily. Its sickening. I say let them kill each other off and be done with it.

  • Obviously we are having quite a crises with the Islamic religion, every time this happens its the root of it.


    The problem is that no one wants to put a stop to it, and the United States knew about this? That is the problem, A out of control problem, is Obama that dumb? Not to have learned from 911? Obviously he is.

    That is your opinion, we dont stick up for these people, we speak out against the use information to inflame hatred of Islam as a whole. As you just posted, you say "barbaric monsters", "violence is all they know",, while this sort of ignorance is evident, and beng promted here, then it is our right to speak up and try to limit the disinformation campaign against Islam and muslims. Islam is a peaceful religion !!!!, I'm not defending those who commit criminal acts. I'm defending my faith from being maliciously aligned with them by those pushing the anti Islamic hatred.
