Alhamdillullah [Praise allah], Obama Lifts Scrutiny of Fliers From Muslim Nations

By Debbie Schlussel

Just over a week after Barack Obama officially hired Muslim extremist Nawar Shora to be a Senior Policy Advisor for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Obama administration removed strict screening requirements for travelers to the U.S. from 14 “terrorism-prone” (translation:  Muslim) countries.


If you are traveling to the U.S. from Algeria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other assorted world paradises of the Islamic persuasion, now is your time to do Undie-Bomber, The Sequel.

The extra checkpoint scrutiny for these people has been removed, and, predictably, applauded by the usual whiner suspects from  CAIR, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (whose chief honcho’s wife, Dr. Layla Al-Marayati, heads a HAMAS-enabling charity).

The Obama administration is lifting an emergency order that has required extra airport screening of all passengers flying to the USA from 14 terror-prone countries, two senior administration officials said Thursday.

The emergency order was implemented after the attempted bombing of an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day.

The new system will treat all passengers flying into the USA the same way, regardless of nationality, said the officials, who were briefed on the policy. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy is not being announced until today.

Back to the same old failed “security” policy, which failed to catch the Undie-bomber.

The policy is the Obama administration’s latest effort to tighten international aviation security since a Nigerian man, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, boarded a flight in Amsterdam allegedly carrying explosives in his underwear. Authorities said Abdulmutallab attempted to blow up the jet, which landed safely in Detroit.

“Tighten” security? Like eating a brick of cheese “tightens” calorie intake.

In early January, the administration required foreign airports to give extra checkpoint scrutiny to anyone flying to the United States from one of 14 countries or who is a citizen of one of those countries.

Islamic groups such as the Muslim Public Affairs Council assailed the policy as profiling because most of the countries, such as Algeria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, are predominantly Muslim.

The policy being phased in this month will use intelligence snippets about terrorists whose full names are not known.

Authorities will put together information such as a terrorist’s partial name, facial features, recent travel history or home country. U.S.-bound passengers who match those descriptions will face extra checkpoint screening at foreign airports, according to one of the administration officials.

The system is tailored toward intelligence information and possible threats, rather than stopping people of a particular nationality, the official said.

Since government computer systems used for these purposes have repeatedly failed and have been shown to be boondoggles, good luck with that.

Though the Bush administration–always pandering to Muslims, as well–never had extra scrutiny for travelers from Islamic countries, it should have.  And just because Obama briefly, only slightly got it for a scintilla of time–only because a Muslim’s underwear failed to detonate–doesn’t mean it’s time to get rid of these brief, necessary security measures.  In fact, they were not enough because there should be extra scrutiny for Muslims coming to America from all nations, not just 14 Muslim nations.

As I always say, America . . . Desperate But Not Serious.

President Obama seems to be indifferent at best to the lives, safety, and convenience of his fellow citizens. CAIR and its backers seem to loom larger on his radar screen.

    Profiling based on “arab” or “muslim” will not work. How hard is it to wear jeans & a t-shirt … and give yourself a shave?

    Not that hard at all. People act like they’re so overt and easy to spot. Look at a good like Bashar Asad – Toss him in some US City – call him Jim – talk with no accent and what’s he look & sound like? He looks like a regular guy – that’s what. Security isn’t so simple – but the simpleminded think it is.

    ( It’s even pointless to try and discuss! )

    The only way to have true security – would grind the nation to a halt. Wonder why we don’t have true bulletproof security.

    ( Now our Army on the border & in our airports – I’d like to see that – that’s do-able security that has teeth. )

The CBC is reporting that the “extra screening” (which was done in the past if one travelled to the US) is now over. They’re saying it’s going to be much, much easier to enter the United States.

J.S. on April 2, 2010 at 3:50 pm

And this rule change benefits Americans in what way. when, say, I put my daughter on a plane to go visit her grandmother?

DS_ROCKS! on April 2, 2010 at 3:53 pm

He will pay for this at the mid terms. I’m truly glad that I have no reason to fly for a while. At least the rest of the year, probably. It can’t be a surprise that a guy that is as radically pro abortion as B.O. is, would have this much contempt for the security of innocent passengers on planes flying around in an aluminum tube.

Joe on April 2, 2010 at 3:54 pm

His naivete is truly terrifying.

Joe on April 2, 2010 at 3:56 pm

This a**-kissing of the Muslims is absolutely maddening; just as it was under the Cheney regime. If I hear “great peace loving religion” and Islam in the same sentence one more time, I will vomit. Apparently it is ok for the Muslims to kill those who do not share their absurd beliefs, and for their religion to encourage it, but it is forbidden in the USA to offend them or to say out loud that Islam is anything but “peace loving”.

DS hit the nail on the head; “….there should be extra scrutiny for Muslims coming to America from all nations, not just 14 Muslim nations.” Of course we know that will never happen, because that would be racist, biased, offensive, and the now dreaded “P” word; “PROFILING” (which in reality is nothing more that rational, logical police work). Bottom line: the USA will continue to kiss up to the Muslims ad infinitum, and when you fly it will continue to be pot-luck whether you and your family live through it.

Its just a matter of time before we have another terror bombing on board a plane.. and they won’t fail next time.

This Administration is terrif at cracking down on Israel, not so hard on our Islamic enemies.

America – desperate but not serious in the war on Islamic terrorism.

NormanF on April 2, 2010 at 5:24 pm

You guys are a bit obtuse on this issue. It doesn’t make sense to specially screen people from certain countries only, because terrorists will resort to increasing use of nonsuspect nationals, like Paulin Ramirez. Notice that today they will begin “intelligence screenings” which is just a basically Israeli way of screening, and avoids the nasty non PC “profiling” but amounts to the same thing. I think sometimes in your zeal to beat down, criticize, and demonize your opposition you overlook certain facts. Overemotionalizing only weakens your case. What you ought to be recognizing is that Obama has been pursuing policies mostly identified with Rep’s, like opening up offshore drilling and in this case introducing security profiling. As for talking with Hamas-get a clue! While Bush was publicly castrating Hamas, behind the scenes neocons had tertiary contacts with certain leaders via friendlies. Don’t be naive! the only difference from the rep’s and the dem’s who reach the level of top officials is the Degree to which they pursue certain international and geopolitical strategic policies. What you really ought to be thinking hard on is what alley the real power brokers are guiding us down and what the ultimate goal is. Regardless of which party is in power we are clearly headed toward a certain objective. Get smart yourselves and think about whether you are being scheistered and emotionally prodded into someone else’s agenda-like so much expendible fodder. Pawns in a bigger game. Make no mistake, they are deadly serious about Islamic terror because it is an extremely useful and effective tool. Think! With the Soviets down but the Russians not out, and China rising, what is the calculation of the grand strategy toward terrorism. Terrorism in the main, terrorizes the mind. It is most potent as a psychological weapon that manipulates psychologically. Statistically it hurts much fewer than typical conventional military actions. It has a purpose that can be capitalized on by those far astuter than mass hystericals. THINK PEOPLE THINK!!! What are you being prepped for, what will you accept as a limitation on your liberty in the name of security and terror?

O' fabian on April 2, 2010 at 5:57 pm


    wow another pseudo intellectual writes a f88king essay on a blog. We’re not impressed and still think it’s a damn dangerous idea to lift any sort of restriction on terror sponsor countries. White guilt is alarmingly being applied to islamic extrmists it seems more and more.

    Joe on April 2, 2010 at 9:22 pm

So the near miss just a scant three months ago wasn’t good enough for the “Obamination”. He’s clearly determined to enhance the possible murder of innocent American lives through proxy. If and most likely when a plane is taken down Obama would have met the grounds for a treasonous act.
Doing nothing, or not acting in time from a non-preceived threat is one thing, but to 1. appoint a Muslim to the TSA, and then 2. Basically call off any screening that would actually make sense. This is aiding and providing comfort to the enemy, and if lives are lost because of the obvious, then those deaths would squarely be on his shoulders. They would not be casualties in a war zone, they would be murdered victims directly caused by his actions.
Sadly, my horrid brain dead liberal “friends” will find nothing wrong with this decision as with a large portion of our society. They truely believe that Israel is the cause of every problem in the world.

O’ fabian writes, “Notice that today they will begin “intelligence screenings” which is just a basically Israeli way of screening, and avoids the nasty non PC “profiling” but amounts to the same thing.”

What they will be doing is only a pale reflection of Israeli screening. (Gotta’ get folks to their flights!) Israeli security *interviews* people, asking a few questions and watching how they respond. They don’t bother with security “theater” like forcing people to remove shoes.

A few days ago I flew down to FL and watched as the TSA rep at security talked to travelers about … sports. Not serious indeed.

Raymond in DC on April 2, 2010 at 6:17 pm

BO is the Muslim candidate. everything he does is in the Arab nations best interest not God fearing Americans. Ive begun to think of him as Achmandinajob-lite. Mark my words this is exactly who we’re dealing with in the White House at this time. Just as Bill Clinton was working for the Chinese.

ARISHEM on April 2, 2010 at 7:45 pm

The next muslim who successfully pulls something off on the plane or after he gets here will be another nail in Muslim Indonesian boy Obama’s coffin.

Bob on April 2, 2010 at 8:41 pm

I like reading comments on DS’s site. Her readers warm my heart.

Cameron Reddy on April 2, 2010 at 10:38 pm

He needs a crisis and he needs it now. his numbers are down and he has a lot more he wants to force down our throats before he is done. So ease up on the security. Parade a bunch of “christian” terrorists on the news. Keep yelling racists at the Tea Party movement and keep stirring the pot to see what explodes first.

Then start to take advantage of this “unforeseen” crisis.

as always, He Lies.

    @karen –

    You assume that Obama has a God. If he were muslim – he would have one.

    Obama has no God. IMO – he’s an Atheist.

    KyanWan on April 5, 2010 at 1:06 am

O’ fabian: You are right that the 2 party system is a travesty. However, I was waiting for “Jew global banker conspiracy” to appear in your rant, but alas, you held back. Excellent restraint!

Raymond DC: Of course talking about sports is an excellent screening tool. Didn’t you watch those old movies – “who won the Woild Series in nineteen fitty-tree? ” would always flush the Nazis out.

DS_ROCKS! on April 3, 2010 at 5:39 am

Well, O’HamasFabian has made an entrance. Don’t institute a measure because the enemies will find a way around it. A good justification for not doing anything. Why protect ourselves at all? The Muslims will circumvent anything we do so why try? Just surrender. I guess with all the dumbing down, CairFabian doesn’t consider the possibility that security measures can s u p p l e m e n t each other, not replace each other.

And of course, the US’s policy is not like Israel’s; they can call it anything they want but the substance is obviously different, with agents are afraid to identify Muslims as security threats on pain of being sued and knowing that our Socialist Government (to say the least) will not support them.

And of course the Muslims will like Obama’s offshore drilling (sic) policy; in words acknowledging the need for oil but not opening up the most crucial areas, and submerging even the potential opened areas in endless studies, and we all know where those will lead. By all means, keep up our dependency on the Mideast; support Obama’s policy.

And does Bush’s appeasement of terrorism make Obama’s OK? I guess to CAIR, yes it does.

And terrorism terrorizes the mind? Of course, but it does more. Just think of 9/11 or the Muslims killing Israelis. This post by O’Fabian is worthless trash; maybe this person is doubling as Hannity’s lawyer; they are about on the same level.

And the neocons had tertiary contracts? Just like anti-semites everywhere. Veiled, unsubstantiated global implications without a shred of evidence.

Little Al on April 3, 2010 at 7:26 am

Once again Debbie has pointed out something that isn’t mentioned by our 24/7 newsmedia. It’s not surprising given
Obambam’s love of the Muslim nations and his willingness to
take risks with our security.

Daniel K on April 3, 2010 at 10:00 am

Obama is a one term President. His con game to US Citizens is exposed, and over.

Truth on April 3, 2010 at 10:26 am

Another bow to the Muslims.

pat on April 3, 2010 at 1:36 pm

O’ fabian on April 2, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Spewed the following talking points:
“like opening up offshore drilling”

He may have relaxed a few off shore sites but according to insiders, the Barry Soetoro administration has banned any new drilling on over 32,000 existing domestic sites including the north slope of Alaska.

Just more lies to increase the cost of oil and make the Rockefeller another trillion dollars from their Middle East Oil holdings.

ScottyDog on April 3, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Obama is a traitor and should be held personally responsible if there is another terror attack on our country.

walter on April 3, 2010 at 4:45 pm

The Israelis haven’t got this problem on their airlines. Nor to my knowledge do they systematically abuse the flying public for Political correctness. Why not do the logical thing by hiring security consultants from Israeli airlines to do it their way?

Oh I forgot! We might hurt an Islamists feelings.

Revnant Dream on April 4, 2010 at 3:44 am

“It doesn’t make sense to specially screen people from certain countries only, because terrorists will resort to increasing use of nonsuspect nationals,”

This is like saying——It doesn’t pay to lock your door, the burglars will just break a window to get in.

Wrong. In security it pays to do the straightforward tasks first, as those discourage the most potential threats.
