DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport controls

al_customs_032013.jpg

A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler"  status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers,  opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15  of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

  • I don't want to ruin anybodies day but I got a news flash people, this s*** has been going on a  long,  LONG time.

    Example:

    4086252916?profile=original

    Major Nidal Malik Hasan

    Born     September 8, 1970 (age 42)  Arlington, Virginia

    Was given a pass on college.

    Given a pass on medical school.

    Is Muslim and was given a pass in OCS.

    Incredibly, this guy was in for 23 years.

    The Army and "FBI investigation concluded that his emails with the late Imam Anwar al-Awlaki were related to his authorized professional research and that he was not a threat."

    His co-workers knew of his "extremist views" prior to the shootings.  The Reed Medical Center, colleagues and superiors were deeply concerned about his inappropriate behavior and comments, described by some as "paranoid" and "schizoid."

    The little king is only the current incarnation of a problem this country's had for a very long time.

    Most Americans really don't give a s*** what color, religion, etc someone is as long as they don't through bombs at us, but given the above and the fact that these people hate us and want to kill us for precisely that reason, maybe it's time we exercised a little discrimination, remember that old word from last century--it use to mean that a person could judge for themselves what's right, who's right or wrong, and be responsible for our own welfare, the welfare of our families, our communities AND our country. 

    There really are people out there who want to kill you Virginia and they will if you give them half a chance.

    Meaning, AFTER we relieve obama of his job, if not his life, we (all of us) are going to need a serious housecleaning--stop doing skin searches on little old white ladies and train herd and fast to defend ourselves, because we all got a lot of work to do and we've all let things slip for a long time.

  • This again begs the question.... Why did we not invade Saudi Arabia? I know why we didn't, most Americans are clueless though.
  • good for you mary i'm not flying anywhere either ever again ,we all need to stop flying till they get those s.o.b.s out of the airports

  • H$&@ NO !!! NOT FLYING ANYWHERE AGAIN , THAT IS FOR DAMN SURE !!
  • Paula Kennedy: Go ahead and sell him a bridge, over the Atlantic Ocean. He's so stupid maybe he will buy it and try to drive to Europe. That's one way to get rid of him.

  •    No one was supposed to hear about this , that is why they created all the hullabaloo over pocketknives .  The immediate days after 9/11 they should have banned ONE particular country from being here and those here should have had to leave PERMANTLY , after all fifteen out of nineteen of the butchers were " SAUDI ARABIAN " .  All the best muslims anywhere in the world are DEAD , regardless of nationality .

  • hmm...youd think since the tsa hasnt stopped not even one terrorist, that the american people would be on the trusted traveler list....WTF???

  •  Its been part of obamas plan all along. Smoke and mirrors! Our border with mexico is drug gang heaven. Whats to say the drug dealers from over there have connections over here. Reports are lately that borders are as safe and secure as any time in history. I smell shit right there. Reporters and tv stations both sides of the border are scared to death. In mexico theyre killing them by the bushel. The focus at the airport is but a tiny trickle of the overall plan. Our goverment supplies these factions. They are here in numbers. Right behind our backs and are prepping for the day. 

  • Rebecca-not only do they have no intention of making Americans safe. They want to harm us. Obama let felons out on our streets and closed the White House off to tours. He means to hurt us in very cruel ways.
  • That first guy looks just like one of the terrorists behind the masterminding of 9/11
