Did the system fail?
I don't think there is a system.
Help me connect the dots.
This guy gets on a plane without a passport (reportedly)
He pays cash for a one way ticket overseas and has no luggage.
His father had turned him in to authorities as being a radical.
His name was on a watch list.
And yet he got no additional screening? Are they crazy?
Meanwhile, I'm taking my shoes off, and jumping through hoops to make a good theater for Obama to show off.
Janet Napolitano won't even admit there is a threat from radical muslims.
We are doomed. All you can hope for is that the passengers will save the plane.
(and their own lives.)
Make up your mind right now, If you are on a flight, and see a guy trying to start a fire, or similar weird acts, you will take immediate action.
The passengers are the only hope.
