Hussain Al-Khawahir: Saudi Arrested w Pressure Cooker @ Detroit Airport Lied to Authorities, Tore Page From Passport (From Qaeda Training Camp Stay?)

By Debbie Schlussel

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?


Religion of Pressure Cookers Not Used for Cooking

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.

Everywhere you go now, thanks to pressure cookers and muslims, there’s a new threat you have to keep in mind and even more alert you have to be.

I was with my family at a church in North Hollywood yesterday and at a street fair here in Simi on Saturday and security was nil. Nobody was paying attention to anything.

America is indeed the land of opportunity… for jihad.

DS_ROCKS! on May 13, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Just curious. Can a forensics expert take the passport and by examining any impressions (or other possible evidence) on pages that are left re-create any stamps or come up with something that can be used to determine where this guy was?

I_AM_ME on May 13, 2013 at 5:53 pm

Page torn out of a passport?

Debbie, this is so old school! With new biometric passports made out of hard plastic, there is no paper to destroy. All the information is encoded on the passport. I’m sure though Islamic terrorists will figure out how to erase them – problem is all the information is backed up on computer, so border authorities can tell if someone is lying about where they’ve traveled.

Still, I don’t expect this incident to lead to tighter border controls. That would not be politically correct! And we have to take the detained Saudi’s word for it he was just here on lawful business. Uh huh – yeah, sure. Besides, its all about a misunderstood pressure cooker, there’s nothing to see here and its time to move on.

It is just terrible and too late.

It is impossible to watch them all. They never should be allowed in …

I wasn’t allowed to bring 3 boxes of frosted flakes on a plane recently..go figure.

David B on May 13, 2013 at 6:14 pm

I am getting sooooooh sick of this. Given what Western countries have been through, 9/11, 7/7, etc. etc., it makes perfect sense to ban, yes BAN, all Muzzie travel into the West. Period. How many more people have to die before we start being proactive about protecting our citizens?! We know they’re coming but we dont stop them at their country of origin! Its insane! Do you hear me Debbie, INSANE!

Curious Quisling on May 13, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Why not just ban them from the West and have the US undergo massive deportation efforts for all of them, their offspring and all of their relatives that funnel money out of this country to known terrorist countries. Half of them do not even have to commit crime. They get government jobs, like this one Arab that came here about five years ago. He has an estate in Fremont, California, dubbed little Crapistan. In that one city alone there are 75,000. Anyway, his cush government job paid him a six figure salary. That was not enough so he submitted times sheets that equaled a million bucks per year in overtime. This S@#T went on for years. All they did was to eliminate his bogus OT. He basically got a raise and further protection from the public employees’ union.
    Go figure. The further fleecing of the taxpayer. State and county jobs are flooded with them and illegals from Mexico.

    Don’t be fooled. When they pass that immigration S!@T millions more will come here and your livelihood will be at stake. It is evidence that they want to eliminate not only the middle class but they want to decimate the hourly wage earner and make it a third world piss pot like India or Mexico.

    The same S!@T goes on with contracting the Golden State. They built a new bay bridge to the tune of 6 billion bucks and awarded the contracts to all foreign companies. Communist China was awarded the contract to provide steel. Of course, we send them out scrap metal, they then return to us metal with defects. After it was built, the bolts failed and several million is spent retrofitting the bridge with new bolts. By the way, when has China produced anything that is of good quality. They basically rip the US off and re-sell us counterfit S@#T.

    I am convinced that ultimately people that speak out against the government will be silenced, e.g., The Branch Dividians, Ruby Ridge and a host of other Americans that assert their constitutional rights.

You don’t have to yell. Yes I agree with you. Take it easy man.

minnie mite on May 13, 2013 at 6:22 pm

I am sure that this Saudi man was just going to use the pressure cooker to make a nice Kosher chicken soup, and he accidentally tore out the page of his passport to write down the chicken soup recipe.

Jeez Deb, you are so suspicious of everyone.

Jonathan E. Grant on May 13, 2013 at 6:31 pm

We know that the FBI knew all about the scumbag Tsarnaev Bros and yet they did not even consider them a risk, let alone monitor their every movement. Has the FBI learned its lesson? Will the Saudi be let go and not be tracked as Debbie suggests he might?

And why is it only the Muslim men with the pressure cookers? Aren’t the Muslim women doing any “cooking” any more?

Ralph Adamo on May 13, 2013 at 6:43 pm

Simple solution. Don’t let towel heads on airplanes. If it don’t ship by camel, it don’t ship.

He didn’t get the pressure cooker memo for his dry run.

Dale Zalaoras on May 13, 2013 at 9:07 pm

I seriously doubt that CBP management actually denied the applicant admission. I can see a possible deferred inspections, or perhaps getting FBI involved. But CBP is looking for firecrackers, mangoes and Tylenol #3.

#1 Vato on May 13, 2013 at 9:09 pm

Come on you don’t believe this crap do ya? They have to establish motive and articles used in the Boston bombing so the real story is obliterated. This is just another attempt to establish reality with Boston bombing.

Now Tuckel doesn’t have anything to worry about because…

“This year, Assistant United States Attorneys Jonathan Tukel, Michael Martin and Cathleen Corken, and Paralegal Specialist Darlene Secord from the Eastern District of Michigan were awarded the Attorney General’s Award for Excellence in Furthering the Interests of U.S. National Security.

Bad egg under Bush? Smelling like what passes for roses now though.

Fast and furious release schedule anyone?

Oh and look the guy they got an award for prosecuting is Nigerian.
Al Qaeda operative thrown under the bus by Al Qaeda racists for the greater good possibly?
Al Qaeda operative taking one for the team?

Frankz on May 13, 2013 at 9:45 pm

Clearly preposterous.
Clearly. Except when was the last time we got the truth from this administration. That’s not really so clear.

Frankz on May 13, 2013 at 9:49 pm

It is reasonable to conclude that this story from the mainstream media – at least to the extent that it seeks to trigger people with talk about pressure cookers – is a decoy.
While the Counter-Jihad Movement allows itself to get distracted by absurdist stories (what serious terrorist would attempt to “smuggle” a pressure cooker on a plane when they can be readily purchased?) about “pressure cookers”, those attempting to Islamise the West can continue unimpeded.

Nigel Waddington on May 13, 2013 at 10:28 pm

Sadly, 90% of Americans do not even know what a pressure cooker is or what is does. They probably think it is an APP or something on performed on social media.

AR on May 13, 2013 at 10:42 pm

@Nigel Waddington
“what serious terrorist would attempt to “smuggle” a pressure cooker on a plane when they can be readily purchased?”

The same kind that takes “bomb-making literature and batteries wrapped in tape” along with him on the trip.
They only need to be serious about killing people Nigel.

Amazing the main stream media is still reporting stuff like this I agree.
Well if they caught this idiot how many aren’t they catching.
That’s a story for you.

Frankz on May 13, 2013 at 11:02 pm

Anyone that is familiar with cooking and canning knows what a pressure cooker is. Some Americans still do that. There is no reason to bring one on an airplane,though, when you can buy them here. Unless of course you are an enemy of the U.S. and are probing our security. The towel heads do that all the time and Debbie often reports it here.

Hey Guys!

Please keep this “earwig song” in your head:


In retrospect, Voldemort was an amateur compared to these modern “POT HEADS”.

Now, every time you read or hear about a silly barbarian plotting to harm us infidels, sing the song and write your Congressional Representative about your concerns.

Frankz on May 14, 2013 at 8:18 am

    Hey Frankz

    Did you note how descriptive this guy was in stating those womanly features he believed made MUSLIM MEN uncontrollable concerning rape?

    Also, I think he quietly sat with those kids, secretly lusted for them, and truly appreciated the fantasy that is HARRY POTTER. Why? It reminds him of the “fantasy” of his beliefs!
    …just not as violent as what he believes.

    Here’s hoping the scarabs or the crocs get him.

    Dennis on May 15, 2013 at 11:01 am

I’m sure the Administration has quietly found a job for him, perhaps in the “Justice Department”………talk about oxymorons.

Victoryman on May 14, 2013 at 9:04 am

at least they nabbed the deadly pressure cooker… this terrorist is left powerless : )

kirche on May 14, 2013 at 9:49 am

We have said this many times here before. TRIAL RUN !!!
They will get focused on pressure cookers, when it will actually be something else.

Sal on May 14, 2013 at 9:55 am

I’m surprised they even brought him in. Don’t they just detain the pressure cooker for questioning and release the “culinary student.”

Adam on May 14, 2013 at 10:10 am

He probably told them that he was preparing a Halal meal and the dumb s!@ts said oh, okay. As long is it is for cooking, then you are good to go. BTW, would like a free path to US citizenship, welfare, WIC, food stamps, section 8, SBA grants, free child care, medicare, SSI, disability, social security, financial aid to any prestigious institution of higher learning, [to learn physics and chemical engineering] the ability to submit fraudulent tax returns to get up to a 100 thousand refund and endless entitlements that the sucker tax payer is forced to pay thanks to the politicians who have sold us out.

AR on May 14, 2013 at 10:54 am

Of course he will be released, with apologies. Debbie – I don’t remember who coined this one, but Famous But Incompetent, while accurate, is, I think, bettered by the “Federal Bureau of Islamicization”.

Phil on May 14, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Hey you ripped that off from Michael Savage. At least give him props.

    This country will do everything to appease the Muslims, illegals and immigrants. I predict that eventually the US will hand over our nukes to the Arabs. If it weren’t for oil, would anyone really give a rat’s ass about the Middle East?

    AR on May 14, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Islam poisons everything, including childhood memories of really good meals cooked in pressure cookers.
May Islam become extinct in our lifetimes.

Pray Hard on May 14, 2013 at 11:09 am

If he cook arab food for the neighborhood in the cooker he would do a lot more damage than explosives.

Larry on May 14, 2013 at 11:20 am

It is obvious he is a pressure cooker collector. He lied because it is embarrassing to admit to strange obsessions. The truth will come out…..eventually.

Visteo on May 14, 2013 at 12:57 pm

Not all terrorism is about blowing stuff up. In the Muslim world there’s the funding, support and organization which are huge undertakings.
In the western world there are the enablers and those who intentionally leave the door open.

Steyn: ‘How empty and dead’ were they to let Chris Stevens die for ‘Obama-Clinton fiction?’

“I cannot conceive of how empty and dead you have to be inside to put Ambassador Stevens through that, then leave him to die, and all the nonsense we heard about, ‘Oh, they couldn’t have got there in time?’ Oh, really? You had, it’s like a football match, is it? It’s like a football game, you’ve got an end time, you know they’re all going to pack up and go home at 5 in the morning or whatever? They didn’t know how long it was going to last. They left him to die. They decided to let their guy die in the confusion of the stuff happening in Egypt and Tunisia over the stupid no-account video.”

“I understand there is partisan politics,” Steyn added. “I accept that. You want your side to win. You put your side’s interests at heart. But I personally could not do that knowing the truth. She called him ‘Chris.’ Obama called him ‘Chris.’ ‘Chris’ this — no Ambassador Stevens, no Mr. Ambassador, none of that — ‘Chris, Chris, Chris,’ like he’s — they’re best buddies. They’ve known each other all their life. And then she tells the families of the dead that they’re going to get this video-maker, and they’re going to put him in jail. And all the time she’s doing that, she knows that is false.”

Frankz on May 14, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Until the government determines that Islam is a war with us (which they will not under this corrupt bunch of fools) we will be subject to pressure cooker and other types of attacks.

My take on Benghazi is that it was a CIA or NSA operation not an embassy, but working out of the embassy under cover. When the cover was blown the facility was attacked.

I would speculate that the House and Senate knew what was going on, through its committee structure. Therefore, the “investigation” is just going through the motions, in order to not disclose what was really happening there.

Just saying.

Panhandle on May 14, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Come on Debbi, the authorities just stated that he is not a terrorist nor is he a suspect anymore. You need to be more up-to-date.

Howard Fineman on May 14, 2013 at 4:34 pm


What we already know is quite bad enough and if America was still worthy of its name these butt monkeys would never have been reelected.
This is an ass covering exercise and any half intelligent person anywhere in the world now knows that the bunch of boobs running the show are hiding behind their official positions.
The damage to American prestige is incalculable.
Even if people support the administration ideologically I doubt they still respect it.
This kind of garbage only happens in banana republics and its time to take a good long look in the mirror.

Frankz on May 14, 2013 at 4:46 pm

The FBI wont be losing this guy anytime soon. Considering the world was telling the US government continually about bin laden,after the first attempt on the World trade center and they ‘dropped the ball’. As with any intelegence work they will have passed on his info to the relevent people (NSA et al) . Also,ripping a page from a passport is impossible ,you dont lose your info because just like a chip card ,the info is kept and the base system keeps a back up. We can thank the terrorists for that advance in technology.
It may be a fake story designed to make us feel good and show us they doing their job, but as anyone who has arrived at a US port of entry with incorrect details will tell you…You get sent back…!
if this guy really had a page missing from his passport,he will have been refused entry and recieved a “Green stamp” . (entry to US territories refused ) and detained ,pending deportation. It happens every day.
