**** 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.
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.
