    If Yemen lacks resources, and the Saudis are our allies, then why don't the Saudis step up? It IS in their back yard after all!

    I do not believe at all that this man acted alone and it needs to be investigated to the fullest of who else was responsible for helping this man to carry out this attack, America let us increase our security because this is proof that we are prone more for terroist attacks in our country.

    He got his mission from the Yenemen Al Qaeda.
    In fact most of the Al Qaeda involved in 9/11 and those who were in Afghanistan are mostly from yenemen.
    The Bush administration knew this.
    But Yenemen are oil people and friends with Bush and Cheney. So we never went after al Qaeda in Yenemen.
    We had 8 years to do it. but failed.
    I doubt the Republicans will allow anyone to set foot chasing al qaeda in Yenemen.
    Even though the Yenemen government plays both sides,
    Hmmm, reminds me of the days with Musaraff in Pakistan, and look at their situation now.

    No I'm sure that this terrorist did not act alone. He surly had got some kind of training to use the explosive he had. He most likely met up with al Qaeda in Yemen and got the explosive with some quick training as to how to set it off but he failed with the help of a passenger and the Lord! As this happened on Christmas day shows that they are the anti-Christ!

    A US Attorney observed the Muslim butt-bomber being accompanied by a well dressed older man to and thru the Amsterdam Security Gate.

    Was that other man a CIA agent, ISI or the Muslim handler?

    Obviously, US Agency's have copy's of these two individuals at Amsterdam's security gate.

    CNN, The American public have the right to view those photos.

    In Oct. 2009, a Muslim wearing a butt-bomb penetrated the heavy screening and security of the Saudi Royal family and stood next to the Saudi Princes security guards, dogs and screeners for at least 30 minutes waiting to 'greet' the Saudi Prince before the Muslim handler remotely beeped the detonator inside the Muslim butt-bomber.

    That was only 2 months ago, and World leaders along with Terror Experts all predicated more Muslim butt-bombers would emerge.

    We have Homeland Security telling the American Pubic they had no 'clue', huh?

    Homeland Security publicly releases the Dutch hero's name and home address for Muslims to attack him, huh?

    After seeing a witness who was on board the plane on CNN a few moments ago talk about a man videotaping the whole thing, I think not. This man who videoed stuck out to hear from before take off and amazingly enough, turns out he was standing and videoing the whole thing. He was the only one doing this. Sounds very fishy. Maybe you should talk to him.

    I'm sure all of us have at some time, made remarks we would cringe at if they were made public. Let's just accept Senator Reid's apology and move on. I want to hear NEWS, not some sensationalized comment.
