Al-Qaeda Wannabe Kept ‘Bomb’ on His Lap -- News from Antiwar.com

Al-Qaeda Wannabe Kept ‘Bomb’ on His Lap -- News from Antiwar.com: "Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, Abdulmutallab’s father, says he is shocked his son was even allowed to fly to the US, and says he contacted the US months ago to warn them of his son’s “extreme religious views.” The US says they knew of him for “two years” and he was on a list of potential terrorists.

Still, Abdulmutallab was not on a no-fly list, and his trivial explosive charge, which managed to only burn his own lap and the hands of a passenger who tackled him, was somehow not detected when he boarded the plane."
