A Michigan man who was aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 says he witnessed Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab trying to board the plane in Amsterdam without a passport.So, this is how the system works when it's working, Ms. Napolitano? Who gets on an international flight without a passport!
Kurt Haskell of Newport, Mich... said he and his wife were sitting on the ground near their boarding gate in Amsterdam, which is when they saw Mutallab approach the gate with an unidentified man.
...While Mutallab was poorly dressed, his friend was dressed in an expensive suit, Haskell said. He says the suited man asked ticket agents whether Mutallab could board without a passport. “The guy said, 'He's from Sudan and we do this all the time.'
You hear that, Janet? These guys "Do this all the time!" And the guy apparently had an accomplice, so let's knock off the lone wacko theories, shall we?
