    Almost..missed him.. by that much.. Times Square Terrorist almost got away..

    ---------------------------------:eusa_eh:

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The no-fly list failed to keep the Times Square suspect off the plane.

    Faisal Shahzad boarded a jetliner bound for the United Arab Emirates Monday night before federal authorities pulled him back. Although under surveillance since midafternoon, he had managed to elude investigators and head to the airport.

    The night's events, gradually coming to light, underscored the flaws in the nation's aviation security system, which despite its technologies, lists and information sharing, often comes down to someone making a right call.

    As federal agents closed in, Faisal Shahzad was aboard Emirates Flight 202. He reserved a ticket on the way to John F. Kennedy International Airport, paid cash on arrival and walked through security without being stopped.

    By the time Customs and Border Protection officials spotted Shahzad's name on the passenger list and recognized him as the bombing suspect they were looking for, he was in his seat and the plane was preparing to leave the gate. They knew to look for him because of updates to the no-fly list made earlier in the day.

    At the last minute, the pilot was notified, the jetliner's door was opened and Shahzad was taken into custody.

    Shahzad somehow lost the investigators who were trailing him, the two people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the incident.

    The FBI and the NYPD declined to comment.

    The Obama administration played down the fact that Shahzad, a U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, made it aboard the plane. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano wouldn't talk about it, other than to say Customs officials prevented the plane from taking off. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the security system has fallback procedures in place for times like this, and they worked.

    The media played this like the Homeland Security Secretary people were all over this terrorist. They had many tails on him to see if anyone joined him on the flight. Now the truth comes out that these clueless overpaid idiots lost him & he almost escaped.

    The Obama Admin & the media are so busted in lying to the citizens of this country. On top of all this the Obama administrations minions & media were trying to pin this on the TEA Party.

    Fucking tyrannical communist oligarchy. Provda anyone?

    They tried their best to pin it on the tea party. Said suspect was a "white male" when in reality, the image confirms only that the guy was NOT a dark skinned black male. All other races could've matched, but they went with white male. Bloomberg took it a step further and said the suspect was a person who didn't like the healthcare bill.

    Now, Mr. Bloomberg, in the last 20 years, how many anti-healthcare bombings have occurred? How many bombings have occurred or almost occurred that were found to be motivated by a common theme? How you got so rich baffles me.

    Funny. When a local cop arrests Obama's friend for being an obnoxious asshole and obstructing an investigation, "the police acted stupidly."

    But when federal law enforcement, aka DHS, screw up everything in sight and almost let the guy fly away, they are heroic. But hey, you can't blame the feds too much. After all the suspect was Muslim and everyone had them looking for a white male who didn't like the healthcare bill, right?

    See, T.S.Eliot wrote 'The Wasteland,' which begins

    APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
    Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    Memory and desire, stirring
    Dull roots with spring rain.


    See, T. S. Terrorist... oh, never mind.
