DTW Airport Security Breach: What Kaylan Policherla (& Al-Qaeda) Learned

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: Reader “Anon Twit,” an Indian Native, suggested that the feds got the name wrong, and that the suspect’s name is actually Kalyan Policherla (a Hindu name, though he could have converted to Islam), rather than Kaylan Policherla. Looks like “AT” is right, as I’ve found numerous documents identifying him as Kalyan Krishna Policherla. That’s interesting b/c the Federal Criminal Complaint and FBI affidavit have it spelled wrong, and likely his citizenship papers and other ID documents have it wrong, too. As I’ve noted in the past, this is why we constantly miss real terrorists, because they spell their names in a million different ways, and our computers aren’t trained to search by various different spellings, according to phonetics. ****

Yesterday, as I told you then, a man breached security at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, cutting straight through TSA security lines and refusing to stop when TSA screeners beseeched him to do so.  The man was described by some as “Arabic” or “Middle Eastern,” but I noted that those were politically correct euphemisms for a likely more accurate “Muslim” descriptor.

kaylanpolicherlaairportscreening

Well, now we know who the guy is,  Kaylan K. Policherla, a 27-year-old (some reports say he is 28) native of India who became a U.S. citizen five years ago and lives in Ohio.  But, while the CAIR crowd, including CAIR-Michigan chief and “ex”-criminal Dawud Walid a/k/a Delano Anthony Willis, Jr., are crowing that he’s not a Muslim and this means profiling Muslims is wrong, the jury is still out on just who Policherla is and his religion.  Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout Willis? We don’t know that he’s not a Muslim.  In fact, Kaylan is often a Muslim name, as is the case with Wall Street Journal writer, Melik Kaylan.  And India has 150 million Muslims, far too many of whom have come to our shores. Or he could be a convert to Islam.

Clearly, the FBI thought he was a terrorist or had some connection to terrorism, because they sent Special Agent Michael Thomas to the airport to investigate.  Thomas is on the Joint Terrorism Task Force and was the case agent on the Detroit Terror Cell case.  Read Mike’s affidavit and the Federal Criminal Complaint against Policherla.  Mike’s a good guy, and successfully fought off the absurd indictment against him and prosecutor Richard Convertino for having the nerve to actually get terrorism convictions against the Detroit Cell.  Yup, Mike Thomas saw how we treat good, patriotic FBI agents who “get” the terrorists.  We crucify ‘em.

We don’t know why Policherla did what he did–it still appears he was testing the system and/or conducting a dry run. But he sure learned a lot, and so did all of our enemies.  To wit:

Not only did Policherla breach airport security with no luggage and no ticket or boarding pass, but he parked his vehicle illegally, right in front of the airport terminal, the McNamara Terminal.  And he got to see what happens when you do all of these things.  I’d say he and his compatriots learned a lot.  They saw that if you park illegally in front of the airport, it is some time before you are towed–a great opportunity to bomb the place (remember the Glasgow International Airport bombing by Muslims?).  They learned that you can rush through security and won’t get shot down–a great opportunity to bomb a long line of people waiting to go through, early in the morning.  And he learned that when you go through illegally, the TSA has a magic wall that comes out from the ceiling, sealing off the entire airport–a great opportunity for your Islamic terrorist partner to get through before you, put together his plastic gun or what have you and hold the entire sealed-off terminal hostage.

Yup, Kaylan Policherla garnered a lot of intel for the terrorists, whether he was working for them or not, whether he’s Muslim or not.  And I say, the jury’s still out on both of those.  I’d venture to guess that he is likely both of these.

But I’ll tell you what we’ll hear plenty of, if, indeed, Policherla is a Muslim:  he’s mentally unstable;  he didn’t mean it;  he drove here with no luggage, parked his car in front of the airport, and walked right through security without heeding TSA officials’ calls to halt . . .  just ‘cuz.

Debbie, I think name should be “Kalyan” and not “Kaylan”. Kalyan is a common Indian name for men.

Either way, he was definitely testing the system!! If he’s an American citizen since 2006 – and it takes several years for Indians to become American citizens – he sure should know airline rules and where to go and where NOT to go.

He could either be a mozlum sympathizer or a Hindu convert to i-slam! That’s definitely a possibility. We already have quite a few Hindu converts floating around.

I hope they treat him like a terrorist and lock him up for good, but I guess that won’t happen.

AT: Nope. It’s Kaylan. Click on the link for the affidavit/federal criminal complaint. And yes, he could be a convert. DS

UPDATE: Looks like you were right, AT. The feds spelled it wrong, I believe. Pls. see update. DS

Anonymous Twit on February 9, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    he was in my class in med school. he called himself Kal. We all called him that. That’s his name. not kaylan.

    rossgrad on February 9, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Hahahahaha…seriously? This is the most hilariuos thing I’ve ever heard. This how stupid and ignorant white trash media is. I knew kal in med school. First off, the guy is a hindu. Hindus and muslims have the same relationship that muslims and jews do. So, just think how stupid it would sound if some kid with a yamaka ran past security and some ignorant white racist couldn’t tell the “assailant’s” race called him al-qaeda. Kal suffered from a psychiatric disease. The guy was a quite little bookworm in medical school. Seriously folks, get an education before you point fingers. … and to you Debbie, you are the most pathetic excuse for a journalist. You’re just a political clown. Didn’t you get booed off jerry springer for supporting lynching?

    ross doc on June 2, 2010 at 12:50 am

Also – people at the airport in line need to be more vigilante. I mean really if a guy was anywhere near me and he just walked through or ran or disregarded the TSA officer I hope I would have the stones to trip, tackle, or grab the guy. Here in Los Angeles it is a 2 check system – 1st check to see if you have a ticket then proceed to baggage check. This situation could not happen in LAX. All 20-40 year old men need to be more aware – we can’t leave everything to low paid low skilled security officers or even trained police officers. We all should help. Be more aware of your surrondings at airports, subways, large events, parking lots etc… Take a minute and just stop and look around. This applies to terrorists and just common theft crimes. A little eye contact can go a long way.

Lancaster on February 9, 2010 at 2:07 pm

You chose a very interesting word to describe
the situation. The TSA agents “beseeched” this
idiot to stop. It kind of sums up this whole
problem, doesn’t it? We beseech and beseech
these 7th century dirtbags to listen to us. They
laugh and keep on walking, bombing, etc.

Words don’t mean a damn thing to a person who looks
upon the speaker with contempt.

cirrus1701 on February 9, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Back in the 30s and 40s, the Communist Party had members who were secret Communists. They had their Communist Party membership, and even took positions against the Communist Party on occasion to protect the confidentiality of their memberships.

Is it not conceivable that Muslims could do the same thing when they thought it would benefit them?

Let’s see now. Muslims are about 1 percent or so of the population. So airport and terrorism incidents should only involve Muslims 1 percent of the time, right? Otherwise, if they are more than 1%, let’s profile them.

Little Al on February 9, 2010 at 2:19 pm

meant to say “hid” their Communist Party membership.

Little Al on February 9, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I think he was casing Detro Metro (full disclosure: I’ve passed through it several times in the past decade) for persons unknown. I don’t think Kaylan Policherla was working alone. He was clearly trying to identify weakness in US airport security. Had his car had a bomb and he was rigged with a suicide bomb belt, the consequences could have been catastrophic. Someone learned a great deal yesterday and rest assured, the incident at Detro Metro will not be the last.

America needs to wake the heck up!

NormanF on February 9, 2010 at 2:27 pm

This is big and you stated it Debbie.”Kaylan Policherla garnered a lot of intel for the terrorists” That is where I, as an American have a problem with.They are willing to get caught so they can advance their agenda.

Darlene on February 9, 2010 at 2:31 pm

From the article: “Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Monday’s incident demonstrates why ethnic and religious profiling are poor indicators of potential security problems.”

So we are supposed to believe because reporters said that the guy was “Arabic” that we should then not profile for Muslims or those from Muslim countries because he turned out to be from India? Huh? Does the CAIR barbarian think we are dumb enough to not know that there are Muslims from non-Arabic countries?

Another possible reason for this dry run: CAIR can get a public relations message out that because this guy was not from an Arabic country, therefore we should not profile for ANY Muslim. Sadly, liberals will be dumb enough to fall for it.

What we do know is that Hindus do not commit terrorism against America, and they assimilate into American culture, unlike Muslims. Therefore, there is almost no possiblity that the Indian responsible for the security breach was Hindu. The guy is surely a Muslim, but the CAIR spokesman hopes that the fact will never be reported, and that we can be tricked into thinking that because he is Indian, he is not Muslim.

JM on February 9, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I used to think we were somewhat safe around Detroit because, considering the number of Muslims around here, they wouldn’t, shall we say “dump” in their own nest. The Crotch Bomber kind of shot that theory on Christmas. This incident and a couple from recent years involving “innocent” Muslims riding school buses and having trunkloads of cell phones tells me they’ve figured out that Detroit, with its Leftist government, PC mentality and already thoroughly infiltrated Airport is a great place for “dry runs.” To further prove my point, in addition to the Mirandizing of the Crotch Bomber; this joker has only been charged with a misdemeanor.
P.S. India has the third largest Muslim population at 160 million after Indonesia and Pakistan.

Tom in Michigan on February 9, 2010 at 3:19 pm

Leave it CAIR to use this incident not to decry terrorism but to further its claims to victimhood. It’s way, way past time we start to figure out a way to drive these terrorist fellow travellers out of the country or into Federal prisons. Prediction: all this activity is a prelude to something really, really nasty. We’ve proven that we have allowed ourselves to become weak and therefore, vulnerable under Obama.

Tom in Michigan on February 9, 2010 at 3:29 pm

What is needed for pre-flight screening is a shielded scannner booth that will detonate any explosive packed or implanted on a person. Placing such booths at pre-boarding terminals be they bus, raiload, marine or aircraft should discourage this facet of terrorism.

oldguy77 on February 9, 2010 at 3:50 pm

I actually know for a fact that the individual in custody is South Indian, RAISED as Hindu, and comes from an otherwise normal family. Obviously, something went wrong here and he very well could be a convert. Maybe he is psychologically disturbed as well since he seems to be almost catatonic. I don’t know what he was thinking; obviously he wasn’t. And, how did the taser not work on him?

shoelover1981 on February 9, 2010 at 4:26 pm

This jackass will be in the news again someday or his prayer group anyway.

Jack Hoft on February 9, 2010 at 7:02 pm

He looks more Arabic than Hindi. He’s not that dark and his features are more typical of Middle Easterners. you can see a mixture but I’ll bet he’s from one of the Northern areas of India which were dominated by the Muslim Moguls from Persia for several centuries. I believe, it is where most Indian Muslims originate even today so I’m betting those who say he is are probably right.
But one question, why is it always Detroit?

mk750 on February 10, 2010 at 10:35 am

Going by his last name, he’s most likely from my home state Andhra Pradesh in south India. His name is Hindu-ish but he could easily be a convert, retaining his name (taqiyya 101).

I’m curious to know how he got his citizenship at 23. All the naturalized Americans who came from my state never got their citizenship before they were in their 30’s. Family-based sponsorship takes 15-20 years and not many Americans of south Indian descent sponsor their relatives. Unless he married an American citizen for a fast track green card/early citizenship.

Did the feds just write down his name on basis of what he said? Did they not check his license or any other document properly for the REAL spelling? He should be charged for *lying* to the cops. In India, when notorious gangsters are caught by the police, they initially give out fake names. Later after a round of torture (real torture), they give out their real names.

And then, the place is Detroitistan! This isn’t even a puzzle for the feds to solve, the pieces are all there in place!

Anonymous Twit on February 10, 2010 at 12:21 pm

The guy should be deported back to India. He is definately a hindu and has given ALL Indians of all religions a bad name. In court, he did not want to give his name or talk at all. Even though he knows English. And I don’t think he has a mental problem at all. But fyi, also just in the same week, another hindu from South India was also arrested for raping a woman in Royal Oak motel.
Shame on these ppl!

nom-muslim indian on February 10, 2010 at 1:22 pm

a little bit more revealed in this report:
http://www.dnaindia.com/world/report_indian-breaches-detroit-airport-security-charged_1346165

quote: “. . .India-born Policherla, who became a US citizen in 2005, ignored security officers who repeatedly asked him to stop at the McNamara Terminal and kept walking.

The authorities then activated the breach alarm, causing metal gates concealed in the ceiling to snap down, and blocked 27-year-old Policherla’s access to the boarding area. He was tasered by an FBI agent, wrestled down and handcuffed. Panicked passengers fled the terminal and flights were delayed for hours as the drama unfolded. . .On Tuesday, Policherla was charged with entering an airport area in violation of federal security requirements, a misdemeanour punishable by a year in prison.

He was also charged with resisting arrest, a two-year misdemeanour. Policherla, who lives in Ohio, stood silently in a Detroit district court before being ordered to remain in custody.

He did not respond to US magistrate judge Mark Randon when asked his name and other questions during the hearing. Despite the inclement weather, Policherla wore a long-sleeved shirt unbuttoned to his stomach, standing impassively with his hands in his pockets. A hearing on whether he will remain in custody is set for Thursday.

Court officials told DNA that Policherla filled a form in English seeking a federal defender and was cooperative with the pre-trial services. The court granted federal defender Dave Tholen’s request for a mental health evaluation for Policherla.”

wtd on February 10, 2010 at 1:25 pm

He could be from South India Andhra Pradesh state.
I don’t think he is a muslim.

Probably he is upset due to job loss or a family issue.

Raghu on February 10, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Raghu, there are quite a few Hindus who have converted and still retain their names for obvious reasons (part of their taqiyya, to fool kafirs). For instance, the Canadian terrorist Steven Vikash Chand. His middle and last name sounds Hindu-ish but he’s a convert to islam and a terrorist who was involved in the 2006 Toronto bombings.

Anonymous Twit on February 10, 2010 at 3:44 pm

I can’t believe all the stuff that is being speculated on this website!! Are you guys for real??? How can you make conclusions based on the information in the press, knowing that some of that stuff can be false. I’m appalled at all the talk about him being muslim trying to “test” the system or the fact that he can be a US citizen so fast. Did anyone ever think about the fact that he came here when he was young with his family??? Those indians that made comments on how he could get citizenship so fast, get your facts straight!! You can become a naturalized citizen 5 years after getting your green card.

As far as the “hype” as to him being a muslim convert that is ABSOLUTELY not the case. His name has been misspelled by the feds with all the technology that is available they can’t use it to find the right spelling of his name, which is KALYAN. It is a common HINDU name. He obviously has some issues psychologically if he’s not responding to even a judge asking him his name. People do crazy things when they are not in the right frame of mind. Unfortunately, Kalyan chose to act out or rather not act in the wrong place and at the wrong time, especially in face of the security scares at the Detroit airport.

Doesn’t anyone question the TSA and their reaction to the situation. At the Mcnamara terminal, you have to show ID and a boarding pass before even getting in line to go through metal detectors and/or screening. Why didn’t the TSA personnel stop him before that??? Why not physically barricade him before he even got to the “sterile area” and terminal escalators?? Everyone is speculating on whether he is muslim and/or terrorist but no one is talking about the fact he got past so far before they did anything. I’m concerned with my safety when I fly next time out of Detroit Metro. There are always TSA officers that are standing around and “working”, so why couldn’t they stop him??? Yes, Kalyan did in fact show that there is a major flaw in airport security in general since he was able to get past so many TSA officers before being detained. Regardless of whether he was not responding to verbal questions, commands they could have physically restrained him after the 2nd or 3rd noncompliant response instead of letting him walk right through. He did not have a boarding pass that should have held him up from entering the area where we all have to take our shoes, jackets and run them through the scanner. The days of non-passengers entering the terminal in the US went away when 9/11 happened so now anyone without a boarding pass or id can walk right in?? Not only is the US very lax in this area but the very last to adopt this policy. In other countries the only people allowed in the terminal are passengers. The TSA needs to get their act together especially in Detroit after the Christmas day incident. I’m not saying that he shouldn’t be prosecuted for violating airport security but obviously the government doesn’t think that he is a terrorist since they only charged him with misdemeanor punishable up to 1 year in prison. If they did think he was a terrorist, I’m sure the charges would have been more severe.

A: I’m appalled at your stupidity and naivete, and it only took me one sentence–not several long, boring paragraphs–to say so. Just shows they’ll let anyone into law school and the state bar, these days. DS

attorneytobe on February 10, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    Its not him, but you show the naivete in responding without any understanding of what would have happened. Are you really going to be attorney, if so people in your jurisdiction will be screwed for your stupidity.

As anticipated . . .family plays the mental illness card:

http://www.freep.com/article/20100210/NEWS05/100210042/1001/NEWS/Airport-fracas-suspect-has-mental-problems-dad-says

Airport fracas suspect has mental problems, dad says

The Ohio man accused of ignoring Metro Airport security until he was jolted with a Taser this week, causing a nearly hour-long shutdown of the McNamara Terminal, has suffered from mental problems related to a car crash, his family said today.

Kalyan Policherla, 27, was arraigned today in 34th District Court in Romulus on charges of resisting and obstructing a police officer during the security breach Monday. The charge is a misdemeanor that carries up to two years in prison if the Bryan, Ohio, man is convicted.

Judge David Parrott set bond at $10,000 for Policherla, who remained held at the Wayne County Jail. A preliminary exam is set for Feb. 24.

His father, Dr. Prasad N. Policherla, a neurologist for the Defiance Clinic in Defiance, Ohio, issued a statement today saying “his son has been dealing with some mental health issues and erratic behaviors since an automobile accident in September of 2009.”

A spokeswoman for the clinic declined to elaborate and said Dr. Policherla wouldn’t comment further.

Kalyan Policherla also faces a federal charge of entering an airport in violation of security requirements, a one-year misdemeanor. During a U.S. District Court appearance Tuesday, he did not respond to a request to say his name and was ordered held until a detention hearing in federal court Thursday.

Policherla ignored Transportation Security Administration officers as he walked through a passenger screening checkpoint Monday morning, authorities said. Policherla had no boarding pass or luggage when he parked illegally at the airport and breezed past security, ignoring demands to stop before he was subdued. Police said they found nothing suspicious on him or in his vehicle.

Airport gates were closed around the area of the breach. A portion of the terminal was evacuated and some passengers fled in panic.

wtd on February 10, 2010 at 7:11 pm

hey,

I have got lot of friends with name kalyan. It is a common hindu namein the state of Andhra pradesh (INDIA).

One of the biggest actor in the state of andhra pradesh is pawan Kalyan

kennedy on February 10, 2010 at 10:44 pm

He is a Hindu Brahmin from the South Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. Their native populace Speak the Language Telugu. I think he was being suicidal, wanted to be shot and killed.

raideri on February 11, 2010 at 2:11 am

Anyways, DS, i think you are just stirring the pot . A terrorist can do this anywhere in the USA, can happen in Grand Central, can happen near a crowded entrance outside a stadium,can happen in a high school football game!, if the will is there no one can stop, quit being tough on the airport security or focussing too much on the security at the airports. Its not like 300 million americans are always on planes and airports.

raideri on February 11, 2010 at 2:15 am

Sure enough, On the 5:00 am news on WJR, the old “suffering from mental problems” excuse was trotted out as Debbie called it. Aren’t there enough mental cases walking around loose here? Must we import even more from the third world? Spare me.

Warlord1958 on February 11, 2010 at 6:02 am

Edit: found out he is a different Kalyan..ignore my above post.

John on February 11, 2010 at 9:00 am

You got the name wrong in the first place! His name is ‘Kalyan’, not ‘Kaylan’. There is hell of a difference between these two. His dad says, he’s mentally ill but we’ll find out soon what the real story is.

Coming from the same country and state, I know for a fact that he’s not a terrorist for sure.

He is a naturalized citizen of this country and cannot be deported as some one suggested. In that case, every one have to leave this immigrant nation and the natives could have it back.

People, please grow up and stop profiling based on religion and origin. Evil comes in all colors and cultures.

Sol on February 11, 2010 at 10:10 am

Kal was a year ahead of me in high school. I was close friends with his sister who was in my graduating class. Kal is no terrorist like many of you are saying. I think you all need to stop profiling people. Kal comes from a very good family and they’re dealing with a lot right now, and all of the bad mouthing of their son isn’t helping. I know since 911 everyone is terrified about another attack on the US, but ask yourself this, if this was a mentally retarded white woman would this make national news…probably not. Just because he has dark skin doesn’t make him linked with any terrorist groups. I wish the best for his family in dealing with all of this. I hope none of you have to deal with an issue in your family like this and have strangers bad mouth your family.

Jennifer on February 11, 2010 at 4:33 pm

I knew Kal as family friend and he is HINDU.. not MUSLIM. He went to medical school and was in a car accident in september.. since then he has went to two different aiports claiming that he is the ‘king’ and asked to be let on the plane. he was in no way shape or form involved with a terrorist organization, he obviously now has some severe mental issues which is very sad.

nma1 on February 11, 2010 at 6:05 pm

It really made me sick to my stomach when I read this. Not because somebody got past airport security. Not because it was a indian man who did it. Not because someone is a “terrorist”. But to see how fast everyone is to judge a man because the color of his skin. Oh what an America we live in.

Ill tell you one thing. Kal sure loves America, allthough after the events and people thinking because they have a fancy blog they can say whatever they want and spread their racism around like aids, I wouldn’t love America so much. To be honest with you reading this made me love America less, that is for sure.

Kal is an amazing person. We were on the wreastling team together back in high school. I learned a lot about hindu culture from him, I saw his heart everyday when we were on the mats. This man is no terrorist, this is a man who loves America just as much as the next guy.

People should be ashamed of how quick they are to point fingers.

Oscar on February 11, 2010 at 11:05 pm

Way to publish wild, unfounded speculation.

This was probably an attempt at “suicide by cop.”

The FBI has a responsibility to investigate any such event.

When you use the word “Clearly,” you should follow it with objective evidence.

Airport suspect cited in Fort Wayne
Suspect said he was king of Amsterdam

Updated: Friday, 12 Feb 2010, 6:17 PM EST
Published : Friday, 12 Feb 2010, 5:35 PM EST

* Alyssa Ivanson

Two days before Kalyan Policherla, 27, was arrested for breaking airport security in Detroit, Michigan, he tried to buy tickets at Fort Wayne International Airport.

“He was not aggressive and he didn’t bring up any alarms,” Scott Hinderman, Director of Operations and Facilities for the Fort Wayne Airport Authority, said.

Hinderman said on Saturday Policherla drove up to the airport and got out of his vehicle. When security officers told him he wasn’t allowed to leave his vehicle unattended, he said the rule didn’t apply to him.

“He felt he could do that because he’s the king of Amsterdam,” Hinderman said. “That [response] was unusual, so we did run his plate and we did call the police department where he’s from.”

After leaving his car, Policherla of Bryan, Ohio, went inside and tried to buy a plane ticket at the ticket counter from every airline in the airport. He refused to show any identification and wasn’t able to buy a ticket. Hinderman said he didn’t know to where Policherla was trying to fly.

“Not able or not willing to show ID, I don’t know which one, is unique,” Hinderman said.

After he couldn’t buy a ticket, Policherla got in his vehicle and left. Officers did give him a $50 citation for his parking violation.

“He did not try to breach security and we didn’t have any issues. TSA didn’t get involved,” Hinderman said.

Two days later, on Monday, Policherla was arrested in Detroit Metropolitan Airport when he walked through security without a boarding pass. He was wrestled to the floor after a stun gun didn’t stop him. Policherla now faces a charge of violating security, a misdemeanor.

Policherla’s family said he has mental health problems and had no plans for violence.

After hearing that the man who was arrested in Detroit had stopped in Fort Wayne, Michael Womack said he wasn’t surprised.

“There’s people like that everywhere. TSA just has to be on their guard and be careful,” Womack said. “[The Fort Wayne airport] did the right thing and I think they have proper security measures. That’s good to know.”

wtd on February 12, 2010 at 9:29 pm

I am appalled by the xenophobic reaction of people . What did 9/11 make out of the great american people.. where are u headed – Acrimony towards muslims yesterday, hindus now – tomorrow who!

For sure kalyan had a bad accident because of which he has gone crazy. The dying thread shows that the case too has died . Hope Kalyan is relased by now and that he will recover soon.

Let me put some facts correct – ‘Policherla’ is an elite family of the peace loving caste – ‘padmashali’ in India. They are traditional weavers who prided on the clothes they made. They were hall mark of Indian economy before the Britishers came in and broke the backbone of Indian economy and the livelihoods of 99% of population in India’s self-sustained villages.
During Gandhiji’s ‘Satyagraha’ – the nonviolent moment that brought freedom to India , Gandhi was often seen spinning charka or Spinning wheel.

@Warlord1958 – Third world – Especailly India is the place u have come in search of peace once u exhaust the peace that comes from external objects.

Please note that America’s strength is assimilation of various cultures.. Almost 30% of intellectual capital in Silicon Valley is by Indians. You cant just scare away talented people from coming to Uswith rantings like those here..

Thank God I chose to stay back in India than coming and studying at Columbia university.

Balu Policherla on March 28, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    Yes…”Thank God’ you chose to stay back in India rather than come to the US to study at Columbia. It’s refreshing when two parties can reach a common understanding or agreement….

    Proud American on March 27, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Debbie, you’re an unintelligent, superficial, nasty little twat. Why do I say this? Why bother, I doubt you read these comments or you’d delete 70% of them. Just a few points:

“this is why we constantly miss real terrorists” – BULLSHIT. Then why aren’t planes just CONSTANTLY running into buildings?

“and our computers aren’t trained to search by various different spellings, according to phonetics.” BULLSHIT. Maybe not your yuppie little Macbook, but *I* can get (or write) software that does it…you dont think Homeland Security has it? Close-minded moron.

“but he parked his vehicle illegally, right in front of the airport terminal” — Yep, thats definitely something only a terrorist would do!

You’re typical, Debbie. You have your head wedged so far up your ass, you have no way to gain facts or learn truths from anything. All you can do is make things up in your head and CALL them facts.

You should do the world a favor and take down your website. And if you happen to have a gun and a bullet. Please.. use it.

I know who he is. He was a colleague of mine in medical school in Dominica. I do not believe he is a terrorist, though I do not know why he did what he did.
