Hussain Al-Khawahir: Saudi Arrested w Pressure Cooker @ Detroit Airport Lied to Authorities, Tore Page From Passport (From Qaeda Training Camp Stay?)
On Friday, I told you about a man caught with a pressure cooker in his luggage at a Hawaii airport. He also had bomb-making literature and batteries wrapped in tape. But the Famous But Incompetent (FBI) let him go, and detained the pressure cooker for further “analysis” (and politically correct stew-making, I’m sure). Now, a Saudi Arabian has been detained for having a pressure cooker in his luggage. Predictably HAMAS CAIR is saying it’s “just a Muslim with cooking tools.” But the Saudi also lied to police, changed his story . . . AND had a page torn out of his passport. Hmmm . . . where did he visit that he didn’t want the feds to know about? A terrorist training camp in Syria or Afghanistan?
The Shoe Bomber Richard Reid a/k/a Abdullah Al-Muhajir also ripped out a page from his British passport because he didn’t want American and Israeli authorities to know he’d been visiting his Al-Qaeda masters in Pakistan and Afghanistan. He documented in his journals how he put his passport in a washing machine in the back pocket of his jeans, so that his passport would be so washed out, British authorities wouldn’t note the torn out page when he sought a replacement at the British Embassy in Amsterdam, where he was staying in a youth hostel and used its laundry for his evil purposes. He got away with it, and gullible British authorities gave him a new passport, no questions asked, after saying he accidentally washed it in his clothes. The Saudi in Detroit wasn’t so smart.
Federal agents have arrested a Saudi Arabian traveler who arrived at Detroit Metropolitan Airport with a pressure cooker, a key component used in the Boston Marathon bombings last month. Hussain Al Khawahir appeared for a brief hearing at 1 p.m. in federal court on charges he allegedly used an altered passport and lied to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agent about the pressure cooker.
It was unclear Monday whether his arrest is terrorism related or a misunderstanding. But the prosecutor handling the case is Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel, who prosecuted the terror case against underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
I told you all about Jonathan Tukel, who couldn’t care less about Islamic terrorists and is a total phony.
Al Khawahir arrived at the airport Saturday from Saudi Arabia, via Amsterdam, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in federal court. Al Khawahir was traveling with a B1/B2 visa, which lets him travel to the U.S. temporarily for business or tourism.
Hey, another one of Marco Rubio’s sparkling future Americans!
He told agents he was visiting his nephew, who attends the University of Toledo. During baggage inspection, officers noticed a page missing from Al Khawahir’s passport. Al Khawahir told officers he did not know how the page was removed from the passport.
During the baggage exam, officers found a pressure cooker. Al Khawahir said he brought the pressure cooker for his nephew because the devices are not sold in the United States, according to the complaint. Later, he changed his story and admitted that his nephew had purchased a pressure cooker in the U.S. but it was cheap and broken.
Pressure cookers aren’t sold in America? Whoa. Quick, tell that to one of the nearly 300 people murdered or maimed by the pressure cookers this guy’s fellow co-religionist Tsarnaev Bros bought in the U.S.
But, watch, they’ll let this al-schmuck go. Just watch.
