Maybe people should stop calling Islamic Terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attack on Northwest Flight 253 a “failed attack,” or an “unsuccessful attack.”
Abdulmutallab may not have taken any lives, but Al-Qaeda (which has come forward to claim credit) and Abdulmutallab seem to have been pretty successful to me. I think this picture shows just how successful.
Al-Qaeda’s “Failed,” “Unsuccessful” Attack Was Pretty Damned Successful
Instead of profiling people–especially Muslim and Arab people–Americans all over the country missed their flights, missed out on cruises, and had to wait in line for hours, arriving at the airport hours ahead of flights and throwing out lip gloss, toothpaste, and orange juice.
So was it really a “failed” attack? Not really.
It was actually pretty damn successful.
