My Airport, Your Airport; We’re In Trouble, All Over

By Debbie Schlussel
Surprise, surprise! Yet another Muslim got caught with dangerous material and a ton of cash at my local airport, Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
The man, Ethiopian Muslim (strangely, his religion is NOT mentioned in ANY of the news reports) Sisayehiticha Dinssa, had almost $80,000 in cash on him and info on nuclear material and cyanide on his laptop.
Oh, and by the way, we’re paying for his legal defense, federal public defender Leroy Soles, who also represented a member of the Detroit Terror Cell. One stop shopping.
That’s a guy they caught. But there are many like him and worse they have not caught or have been forbidden from searching as thoroughly. I know, based on info from Federal sources working there. And, whatta coincidence, he came to America through Amsterdam, just like shoe bomber Richard Reid once tried to do before settling on France as his departing point.


Frankly, the place ought to be renamed “Jihad International,” given the fact that there is a prayer room for Muslims (where people suspiciously congregate a la Paris’ de Gaulle Airport), many Muslims are employed to conduct TSA screenings (including at least one who supported Bin Laden, Sadeq Naji Ahmed), and still others are gate agents with full access to the airport (not to mention, Nada Houssaiky, the mother of the TracFonistan suspect who transported security and passenger info offsite). And how did “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad find out the super secret office location of the Federal Air Marshals’ inside Detroit Metro? I’m told he knew the exact address to which to send a Christmas card.
Then, there are TSA screeners Michael Sbandi and Joel Mayer, most recently of Dulles International Airport. They stole a crate from a bar, but a local sheriff doesn’t think it’s a crime. And though Homeland Security has suspended them, it won’t or can’t fire them and is hoping they’ll go away. Uh-uh. They’ve hired lawyers. Look for them to be back on the job real soon. Washington Post columnist Marc Fisher has taken the side of these slackers.
But as one Homeland Security agent rhetorically asks us,

What’s the point of looking for bad things instead of bad people when we have bozos like these doing the looking?

Exactly. What is the point? We’re in trouble, America.

Not only with the two TSA morons be back on the job soon- they will most likely sue the agency and get promotions. Back at JFK there is a woman who used to be just a INS officer. She used to fly to China and smuggle jade back through LAX. What she would do is- get off the plane @ LA go into the bathroom and put on her uniform and waltz right out of the federal inspection area. When she was finally caught she was suspended but the prosecutor didn’t feel like doing his job so after the charges were dropped she sued the Dept. of Justice for wrongful suspension and in the settlement was promoted to supervisor. So sadly- none of this suprises me.

I’m surprised he got caught in Michigan, of all places!
Oh well, it’s just one of them Muslims, there are tons of them who passed through Michigan points of entry without a problem.
So we don’t have to worry, our government is making sure that the Muslim terrorists find their way in this country.
Whew! I’m relieved. I thought our airports and borders are completely sealed!
Thank you Deb, you made my day!

Security is a joke at our airports, borders and ports. Hope the brave soldiers in Iraq finish training those security forces, soon. They need to secure and protect our Nation, while they train our Homeland Security, starting with bush and chertoff.

Great article, Debby. Just one word: PROOFREAD!

Well … I guess it’s a good thing that the bad guys aren’t much smarter than the good guys.
Having lived in and travelled to Europe many times over the years, I wonder if Americans would mind legions of cops patrolling their airports while carrying full-auto weapons and leading attack dogs.
Ya get used to it, but Americans tend to be pretty wimpish.
