a passenger on board northwest flight 253 tried to explode a flight from amsterdam to detroit on christmas day in an obvious attempt by the obama administration to distract the public from domestic issues. president obama was not notified of the failed attack for 3 hours. why? BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNEW!! that is the only logical explanation for not informing the president that his country is under attack. the military was also intentionally in a stand down configuration and the flight was not intercepted nor were ANY flights that may have also had similar attacks occurring on board. the explosives were taped to the suspects leg which has proven beyond any reasonable doubt to have consisted of a concrete core.
