The FBI, obviously under pressure, has finally admitted that a second man was arrested in connection with the Christmas Day underwear-near-bombing on an American airliner.
Now... I await admission as to a third player, the "Sharp Dressed Man" described my Mr. Haskell, who talked the airport folks into letting the Underwear Terrorist onto the plane... without a passport. C'mon, "authorities"... release the surveillance video! If you guys are going to call Mr. Haskell a liar again, then prove it. Release the video which will either show the Sharp Dressed Man... or show no such dude. And don't tamper with the footage, either!
Ronald G. Smith sent an e-mail to the Detroit News, the paper reported, apologizing that the information provided to federal investigators by two attorneys aboard the plane had not been made available earlier.
As WND reported, Smith and other federal officials repeatedly denied accounts of the incident by Kurt and Lori Haskell of Taylor, Mich., who described authorities handcuffing and taking away a second passenger.
Following the foiled terrorist attack, Haskell said passengers were corralled into a small, evacuated luggage claim area of an airport terminal. Then, he says, bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in.
"The man in orange, who stood some 20ft away from me the entire time until he was taken away, was immediately taken away to be searched and interrogated in a nearby room," Haskell explained. "At this time, he was not handcuffed. When he emerged from the room, he was then handcuffed and taken away."
So far there's three players suspected as involved... obviously the Guy with the Semi-Explosive Gitchies, the Guy in Orange and the Sharp Dressed Guy.
If it wasn't so serious, it'd be making me think a lot more about the Tom Hanks movie "The Man With One Red Shoe". Damnit... the foiled 12/25 terrorist act could make a pretty decent dramatic-action movie, what with all the fascinating characters and their antics and such. Throw in a couple of evil-eyed Saudi oil sheiks and bearded, sweaty, nervous Islamic thugs in cheap suits while we're at it. And have Arnold S. and Bruce W. blow 'em all away while making curt wisecracks. Damn... they don't make movies like that anymore... too many politically correct, anti-Free-World pieces of crap being pushed out of Hollyweird's butt these days...
