UPDATED: WTF?! FBI Detains Pressure Cooker Found in Man’s Luggage, But Not Man (Who Had Bomb Making Lit)

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: It turns out that the man with the modified pressure cooker also had bomb-making literature and batteries wrapped in tape on him. And, yet, they let him go????? WTF?! See video, below. ****

The Boston Marathon terrorist attacks were not about pressure cookers. They were about the religion of the people who used the pressure cookers to murder and maim nearly 300 Americans: Islam. But, because we are a nation dominated by political correctness (and no common sense), the FBI has started investigating pressure cookers, instead of the TSA profiling Muslims. Take the man who was stopped at a Hawaii airport with what appeared to be a modified pressure cooker in his luggage. Yes, a modified pressure cooker sounds suspicious, and why would you have that in your luggage? On the other hand, the FBI let the guy go (if his pressure cooker was so dangerous, why let him go?), and instead “detained” the pressure cooker for further “analysis.” (Maybe they will make soup or stew with it?) That’s absurd.


Profile the Religion, NOT the Pressure Cookers

The FBI held a passenger for questioning Wednesday when he tried to check in at Hilo Airport luggage containing what appeared to be a modified pressure cooker. The item was found during a Transportation Security Administration screening. On April 15, two bombs made from pressure cookers killed three people and injured 260 on at the Boston Marathon.

In Wednesday’s case in Hilo, authorities did not arrest or charge the man with any crimes and he was released. The FBI did seize some contents of the man’s luggage in addition to the pressure cooker. No explosives were found in the luggage or on the passenger, the FBI said. “The pressure cooker will undergo FBI analysis,” a written statement from the FBI said.

“The FBI does not believe that this incident poses any imminent threat to civil aviation based on our limited investigation thus far,” the FBI said. FBI Special Agent Tom Simon would not provide the passenger’s age, where he lives or any further details on the case.

Yes, we are a nation of security theater, NOT a secure nation. Not even close.

Profile people, NOT cooking devices.

And if a guy has a modified pressure cooker AND bomb making literature AND batteries wrapped in tape, um why the heck are you setting this guy free???

FBI = Famous But Incompetent.

How can it be anything besides theater when Obama won’t even allow us to name them?
Profiling ha ha.

Excessive and Redundant Quran quote (21:44) quote –

“We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

Kind of answers itself that one.
Are they very clever or we just very stupid?

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 4:26 pm

oops typo again,

No they did not see for they are with stupid.

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 4:28 pm

Screeners also found bomb making literature and batteries wrapped in tape.

Why isn’t this idiot being questioned further or the FBI explaining why he isn’t being interrogated further?

One of my favorite lines from “Planet of the Apes” (1968 film) is when one of the apes describes man, “I believe his wisdom must walk hand in hand with his idiocy”

There is only so much we can do with the Kenyan at the helm. He has set guidelines that we have to follow. Get my drift?

A: Bush had the same guidelines. He was just as much of an Islamo-panderer. This has been going on since 9/11 (and actually before, when the Bushies refused to let Customs and the INS open Moussaoui’s hard drive b/c they didn’t wanna profile). DS

Agent on May 10, 2013 at 4:58 pm

It does seem logical to me. After all, we recognize that guns are responsible for shootings and killings rather than people, so it follows that pressure cookers are responsible for terrorism, rather than people.

Little Al on May 10, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Agent does have a point Deborah Lynn. They cant use the word “terrorist” and the Fort Hood Massacre must be referred to as “workplace violence.”

In other words, certain people are members of a protected class.

Where is my comment! on May 10, 2013 at 5:31 pm

We’re not told if he was an Islamic terrorist.

This is exactly the kind of behavior we’ve come to expect of the Famous But Incompetent.

And Islamic terrorists are laughing themselves to death over our detaining pressure cookers!

Only in America.

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Bush is just as bad…

That’s nonsense because the people now in key positions are people like Hagel and you know it Debbie.

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Sorry, frankz, I have to agree with Debbie on this. Bush might not have been quite the dhimmi Obama is, but it’s just a matter of small degree. And, he had the added dhimmi identification of being a rich oil guy. For those of you non-Texans, rich oil guys in Texas are seen as royalty. Apparently, the Bushes have been big buddies with Sauds for a long, long time. We’re all infidels to Sauds and rich oil guys.

    Lyndall on May 25, 2014 at 8:39 am

Also pre 911 is not really the same ball game because you could at least argue that Al Qaeda’s insanity was outside of America’s frame of reference then.

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 6:51 pm

It appears likely the man briefly detained WAS an Islamic terrorist. Now he has been released by the FBI into the the Great American Beyond.

That’s what happens when we refuse to profile Muslims. We place Americans at risk and as a result we are no safer.

NormanF on May 10, 2013 at 7:02 pm

On a positive note, maybe, on the NBC nightly news with Brian Williams, they were questioning Hilary’s response to the Benghazi attack, which was, more or less, “What difference does it make now?” They did question her statement. Move in the right direction? Probably not, but nice that even NBC understands that this administration is flawed.

WilliamMunny on May 10, 2013 at 7:21 pm

Yeah William but they only cover their ass when nobody is paying attention. It’s a little bit crazy like that…

Frankz on May 10, 2013 at 7:32 pm

I think the government is trying to get the American people, or at least the portion of them that know right from wrong and have some balls, to rise up in revolt. I think they want to do this so that they have an excuse to declare martial law, suspend the constitution and make Obama dictator. The total onslaught of opening the borders, amnesty, acts of treason, attacks on moral values and traditions, gun grabbing, tax increases, job losses, the purging and destruction of the military, the encouragement of criminal behavior, weird conspiracy theory behavior, lying to and stonewalling the American people and Congress, lack of a foreign policy that makes any sense, lack of protection of government agents, the military and the citizens, and this list is not complete or all inclusive, have to be designed either to push Americans into a revolt against their government,or simply the destruction of the United States of America by eliminating it as a superpower, as a first world economy, and as the freest and safest nation on the face of the earth.

I’m so tired of being fed a feces falafel and told it’s filet mignon.

Obvious dry run.

Witnesses say he was acting suspiciously before going through security. Leaving luggage unattended. Talking loudly on cell phone (didn’t say in what language). Either this is the dumbest terrorist of all time, or he was testing the system.

Clearly, the intent was to see if security at a smaller, “friendlier” airport (and Hilo is very friendly), might prove more lax. I guess not.

Adam on May 11, 2013 at 10:19 am

That’s an interesting take on it Adam although they were friendly enough to let him go.
Oh well, WTF they’re following the Bush guidelines apparently.

Frankz on May 11, 2013 at 10:51 am

We have to believe everything the suspect says and does, since his release, is being meticulously monitored to identify associates and gather more evidence.

One has to believe his release was calculated.

Visteo on May 11, 2013 at 12:37 pm

@Visteo (see above…)

I suppose one has to believe it the same way some Germans had to believe that the Fuhrer had secret weapons up his sleeve that would one day win the war for them.

I’m sure he’s being “meticulously monitored” in much the same way Tamerlan Tsarnaev was being “meticulously monitored”.

Wakey, wakey Visteo it’s time to get up now.

Frankz on May 11, 2013 at 1:26 pm


    Big difference, Franky. Had bomb making literature been found when Tamerlan was investigated after the Russian contact, we may never have had a Boston bombing.

    I’m not trained in criminal/terrorist investigation. Perhaps you are, Frank. I can only hope the authorities are doing their job and demand answers and changes when blatant failures are shown.

    We are currently spending far, far more money to protect us than we were before 911, but we can never guarantee all terrorist attacks will be prevented.

    The obvious failure was that Tamerlan was never questioned about the murders in 2011. That one or more of the brothers was involved is an intriguing possibilty. I’m still waiting to hear why Tamerlan was never questioned.

    Visteo on May 11, 2013 at 8:47 pm

I can see it now … “Cops arrest gun with man” … “Mangun kills 5 in Chicago” … “Knife held on suspicion of stabbing”

Keep on doin’ us a real good job there, effbeeeye, we’re acountin’ on ya.

Pray Hard on May 11, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Yep, we’re monitoring him … Oh, look, he bought a pressure cooker … Yep, we’re monitoring him … Oh, look, he bought some explosives … Yep, we’re monitoring him … Oh, look, he put a bomb together … Yep, we’re monitoring him … Oh, look he just blew a city block to smithereens and killed hundreds … Yep, we’re monitoring him …

Frankz on May 12, 2013 at 5:13 am

Sorry Debbie, we just CAN’T profile PEOPLE, especially based on their RELIGION. What is this, Nazi Germany? C’mon now. Personally, I’m all for banning things, let’s ban guns, pressure cookers, OH!, and bulldozers and pickaxes, too. Yeah, there were a couple stories about them this past week. To paraphrase the immortal words of Governor Andrew “Bela Lugosi” Cuomo, . . .

“NO ONE NEEDS A BULLDOZER (pickaxe, just name it) TO KILL A DEER!”

While we’re at it, maybe we can ban machetes. I can go to any one of a number of stores in the region and buy literally dozens of them at dirt cheap prices. I’m sure those 13 coconuts I chopped up yesterday evening would be all for it. Hmmmmm, maybe we should ban coconuts, too. I took them off the ground, but if one ever falls on my head from their 20-30 foot height, I could get killed.

Okay, that’s it, we’re banning coconuts, too dangerous for mere mortals to have growing on their farms, and for that matter, throw in mangoes. I’ve seen them do a number on windshields, yeah, no more mangoes, either. Just too much for people to have to deal with on their own, outside of the protection of their friendly FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DICTATORSHIP!!!

RT, I agree with you. That is actually a scenario that has been discussed for years, that The Golfer-In-Chief is going to try and create conditions that will push a situation whereby he can declare martial law, and then of course, all bets are off. Mike Savage was referencing this on his Friday show. He was asking the question of his listeners, “who is trying to push you in to an armed revolt?”

I am thoroughly convinced that The Community Organizer-In-Chief will keep trying to provoke. After all, that’s what he learned from his mentors, Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Cloward and Piven, Bill Ayers, etc. Dark and scary days for “this once great republic.”

Funny that this happened in Hawaii. The FBI field office in Honolulu sped over to the Big Island to take charge of the situation but they let the guy go? Now I know that it’s paradise and all and that the feds there are top notch but even they are that stupid right? Yeah I know dumb question. Of course they’re a bunch of politically correct mooks who are sent out to the “Aloha State” because the field office in Alaska was full. They let the terrorist go but kept the presure cooker because they probably mistook it for a rice cooker (spam and rice is a big hit out there). I feel so much safer from the scumbag Islamic ingrates knowing that the Factual But Idiotic is on the case.

Ken b on May 13, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Let’s not forget that The Fund Raiser-In-Chief grew up in Hawaii, and if I’m not mistaken, that’s where he was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis. I’m sure Hawaii holds a special place in the heart of our . . .

hmmmmmmm, can’t say beloved president, so I’ll just leave it at that.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on May 13, 2013 at 2:57 pm

You know Alfredo I have wondered sometimes when I disappear down the rabbit hole if it’s any accident that the beloved father of the nation was raised in the spirit of Aloha like many Muslims are supposedly raised in the spirit of the perfect peace of Mecca.

Don’t get me wrong Obama is phony Aloha and the ancient Hawaiians would have made short work of him.
But sometimes I do get to wondering about the man who would be king.
