Diplomat Lights Shoes on Fire

Reports are still coming in as I write this, but the latest news reports are saying that a man who is a diplomat at the Qatar embassy in Washington, Mohammed al Modadi, attempted to light his shoes on fire on a flight from Washington, D.C. to Denver.

Apparently, and air marshall on the flight subdued the man, and he was detained and question once the plane landed. Early reports are also suggesting that he did not have any kind of bomb or weapon, but think he may have tried to light his shoes on fire to cover up a smell. (Smoking?)

Two questions come to mind.

First, with all the security at airports in the U.S., how does an Arab get through security with something to light his shoes with? And second, what are the odds this was some kind of test of airport security and airplane security? Maybe next time, we won't be so lucky.

I agree this could be a test to see what they can get away with.

Whew ... we escaped again. Darn good thing Obama is keeping us safe, eh?

The chuckle here (not) is that liberal pundits in the State Run Media are examing all the possible scenarios, except the one that is probably true. This was a test run.

Thank Obama it was just a peace loving Muslim. Just imagine what could have happened if this were some fanatical conservative they had allowed on board.

This stuff is too stupid for Saturday Night Live.
