Reuters reports Dutch military police are investigating claims that an accomplice (identified as “very well dressed Indian man”) may have helped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab board Northwest Flight 253 in Amsterdam on Christmas day without a passport, a story first told here on MLive.com

Claims that the Detroit bomber got on a plane for America while on a terrorist watchlist are false.  There is a process requiring an extensive background check and interview at the US Embassy before any travel.  Any existing visa would have been withdrawn, which would have prohibited travel to, certainly the US but also any nation not listed as a terrorist haven.  This check goes far beyond any “no fly list”.  We have also learned that, while in Amsterdam, the terrorist had been disguised as a Sudanese refugee with NO PASSPORT and had been escorted to the plane by an Indian “official”.  This was witnessed by a Detroit couple, both attorneys, who heard and saw all of it in detail.

The reports of Indian involvement are very strange.  India is the major opponent of Islam in the world, sworn enemy of Pakistan and very close ally of Israel.  Wide cooperation between the Indian and Israeli spy agencies (RAW and Mossad) are continually claimed by Islamic governments who believe these groups are responsible for terrorist attacks blamed on Islamic extremists.

In a stinging irony, Mutallab’s father served, not only a banker but as acting head of Nigeria’s Defense Industries.  This put his father in close daily contact with the large Israeli IDF and Mossad contingent that helped modernize the industry he ran and trained security and counter-terrorism personnel, including airport security, throughout Nigeria.

The cover story reported to the press begins falling apart in Nigeria when you examine the official process the State Department mandates for travel from that country to the United States.

Not only are Homeland Security, the CIA and FBI involved in clearing visas but the State Department as well.  This is the process our terrorist went thru:

Non-Immigrant Visas Qualifying for a Non immigrant VisaAccording to U.S. visa laws and regulations, all non-immigrant visa applicants must demonstrate to the consular officer that they have strong ties to their country of residence and must show that they intend to depart the United States after their temporary visit.  While there is no specific list of documents to be provided or things that must be done in order to demonstrate strong ties outside of the United States, applicants may wish to bring a variety of materials that can assist in demonstrating these ties.

To apply for a non-immigrant visa, you will have to pay the non-refundable $131 visa application fee at a designated branch of UBA Plc and enter the fee receipt number when making an appointment.

Non-immigrant visa applicants must schedule an appointment for a personal interview at http://nigeria.usembassy.gov.  Before you will be allowed to choose a date, you will have to fill out the electronic visa form (DS-156) and enter the barcode number in the space provided.  You then may select from available dates.  If all available appointment slots are taken, you will have to try at another time to secure an appointment.  The U.S. Embassy in Abuja opens new appointment slots every business Monday at 1:00 p.m. and the Consulate General in Lagos opens new appointment slots every business Monday at 10:00 a.m.

Each applicant may schedule only one interview appointment.  If you would like another appointment date, you must cancel the original appointment and make a new one.  An applicant who has double-booked appointments will not be allowed to enter the visa section.  You will have to cancel all previous appointments and make a new one.

Applicants must also submit some or all of the following, as noted:

  • (For all applicants) An international passport valid for at least six months beyond the intended period of stay in the United States.  Please note that the passport must have current and accurate biographic information and should have no observations.
  • (For all applicants) An electronic, barcoded non-immigrant visa application form (DS-156), with all questions answered accurately and signed by the applicant, available at the website listed above or at https://evisaforms.state.gov
  • (For all applicants) Two passport (5cm x 5cm) photographs with full face forward against a white background taken within the last six months.  Hair must not cover the ears. No photos with dark glasses or non-religious, tribal, or chieftaincy head covering will be permitted.
  • (For males between the ages of 16 and 45) Form DS-157 available at http://www.state.gov/m/a/dir/forms/
    Download Adobe acrobat (pdf) reader
  • (For students) Form DS-158, available at http://www.state.gov/m/a/dir/forms/
    Download Adobe acrobat (pdf) reader
  • (For students) Endorsed, valid I-20
  • (For exchange visitors) DS-2019
  • (For all applicants) Visa application fee receipt from UBA Plc.

Applicants seeking to enter the United States to conduct business may present evidence of an ongoing relationship with a U.S. firm or provide a letter indicating the purpose of the trip, the intended length of stay, and the firm’s intent to defray travel costs, if applicable.

Depending on individual circumstances, applicants may provide other evidence substantiating the trip’s purpose and specifying the nature of binding obligations, such as family ties or employment, which would compel them to depart the United States after a brief stay.

Please note that it is impossible to specify the exact form the evidence should take, as applicants’ circumstances vary greatly.  Consular officers base their decisions primarily on the personal interview and may or may not ask to see documents.

Additional Information

Almost all visa applications are adjudicated at the time of applicants’ appearance at the Embassy or the Consulate General, but some cases require additional processing that may delay completion.

At most, visas will be valid for two years, which means individuals can enter and leave the United States as many times as they want in that two-year period.  This does not mean individuals may stay two years.  U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers at U.S. ports of entry determine the period of time travelers may remain in the United States.

Applicants who attempt to obtain non-immigrant visas through fraud or willful misrepresentation of a material fact may be permanently refused visas and denied entry into the United States.

Individuals whose visa applications are denied may reapply by scheduling another appointment at http://nigeria.usembassy.gov.  Please note, however, that applications will likely be denied again unless the applicant’s family or economic situation changes significantly.

For student visa information, please see http://travel.state.gov/travel/living/studying/studying_1238.html. The site contains complete information about additional requirements for students, including I-20 forms, SEVIS fees, financial support, student qualifications, and electronic verification of admission.

Further information is available at http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html

Thus, our terrorist, who had been reported to the same embassy he was interviewed in, had a full background check and was interviewed by a “security officer” who was holding his complete file in front of him.  He was still given a visa though he was a known threat.

A further story from the New York Daily news tells a another story:

Michigan couple claims it saw Nigerian terror suspect trying to board Flight 253 without a passport



Lori and Kurt Haskell says they witnessed Flight 253 terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab trying to board the plane in Amsterdam without a passport.

A Michigan couple on the Detroit-bound flight that was almost blown up Christmas Day say they saw the Nigerian terror suspect trying to board without a passport.

Kurt and Lori Haskell, both bankruptcy lawyers, told the Daily News they saw a sharply dressed Indian man in his 50s – who did not get on the flight – trying to talk an Amsterdam gate agent into letting the suspect board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 without his passport.

If the suspect did get on the plane without showing his passport, the security lapse would be the most shocking yet. Nigerian authorities said Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, left Lagos on a KLM flight to Amsterdam with a valid Nigerian passport – No. A3921640.

It was not immediately clear if he showed the passport at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.The Haskells, who were playing cards on the floor near the Northwest check-in desk in Amsterdam, say they saw Abdulmutallab, 23, with an escort who was arguing with the gate agent.“He said, ‘He needs to get on this plane, but he doesn’t have a passport.’

The ticket-taker said something like, ‘You can’t board without a passport.’ The Indian man said, ‘He is from Sudan, we do this all the time,'” said Lori Haskell.“I think they were trying to make this guy look like a Sudanese refugee and take pity on him,” she said.“He was dressed all kind of poor,” she said, while the Indian man was wearing a “more expensive suit than we would wear to court.

The gate agent said they would have to talk with a supervisor and took them away. Kurt Haskell said the terrorist, who looked like a teenager, never said a word. The Haskells say they didn’t notice him again until they were all 10 minutes from landing.

Then flames were licking up the side of the plane, a flight attendant was spraying a fire extinguisher and passengers were jumping on Abdulmutallab.Kurt Haskell said the battle lasted just seconds. “He didn’t fight back at all,” he said.The Haskells, who were returning to Newport, Mich., from a safari in Uganda, said the passengers were held in the Detroit airport for six hours.

While waiting, they say, they saw a different Indian man taken away in handcuffs after a bomb-sniffing dog was alerted to his carry-on bag.

Were one to use normal investigative procedures, this is the most likely operating hypothesis:

  • Terrorist got on the plane in Nigeria with NO visa by bribing airport security, a common practice there, especially for one of the most wealthy people in the country
  • Terrorist was met in Amsterday by an intelligence agent from India or elsewhere who dressed him as a Sudanese refugee who might have been allowed on the plane
  • This was done as refugees can get on planes but face ICE detention on arrival in Detroit (I have some experience flying “no passport” to Detroit and being bailed out of ICE detention…good competent people working there)
  • ICE detention was not an issue nor identity check if plane was supposed to blow up

It has also been reported that video tape and CCTV of this process is available.  Passengers may made a video of the incident in Amsterdam and the boarding area is under video surveillance, all high resolution tied to biometric security which includes facial recognition software.

It is believed that an Israeli company had installed similar systems in Nigeria several years ago.

Now the blaming starts, Homeland Security, Obama, everyone is at fault.  Joe Lieberman is now calling for an extension of the Patriot Acts and the GOP is claiming this is a failure to protect America from terrorism.

However, most of the people at the level handing these issues are from the Bush era.  Do we blame Bush appointees who still fill most national security positions for a conspiracy to organize and cover a terrorist attack against America or do we tie Obama in for failing to remove these people?

Who gains from this?  Is this a conspiracy of “dumb” or a conspiracy of “bad?”

Is it something else?

Whatever it is, it isn’t what we are being told.

    Remember the bombing of the American embassy in Sanaa that killed 10 people.This was the work of Islamic Jihad.


    Except it wasn,t it was the work of Mossad blaming an Islamic group that were never even in Yemen,they were in Gaza.


    Mossad have been fomenting terrorism and blaming it on Muslims going back to the Lavon affair.India have followed the exact same tactic,remember Gujarat.Indians at airports,Mossad in Yemen and Mossad in Nigeria are three pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly.The part of the jigsaw that does not fit is the one with Al Qaeda written on it.

    I never believe this kind of stupid thing happen in front of our eyes. How can these people say; witout passport he wants to fly. if that the case WHO was the other man with expensive suits so IS IT secret service?or someone from the street he jus was walking around and he swa poor guy and he wants to help him?Hwo buy this kind make up story.But its easy to blame Obama or islam or sucurity. None of them responsible of this incident. Reason 1)his father is very close to MoSSAd and doing business with them and contacting with MOSSAD everyday.2)to increase the pressure to install the new techgnology to all airport that can scane the full body(most of this techgnology created by Mossad or CIA(someone wants to make money-they dont even care about what happen)

    “Northwest Bomb Plot ‘Oddities'” By Lori Price: 29 Dec 2009

    With background checks being so easy and cheap nowadays then why can’t we identify these people before the have the chance to even try and execute their plans.

  5. Brian  December 29, 2009 at 12:22 am

    There is also this comment from an article: This argument is especially compelling in light of what Mr. Haskell has to say about the aftermath of the Christmas bomb attempt:

    “FBI also arrested a different Indian man while we were held in customs after a bomb sniffing dog detected a bomb in his carry on bag and he was searched after we landed. This was later confirmed while we were in customs when an FBI agent said to us ‘You are being moved to another area because this area is not safe. Read between the lines. Some of you saw what just happened.’ (The arrest of the other Indian man). I am not sure why this hasn’t made it into any news story, but I stood about 15-20 feet away from the other Indian man when he was cuffed and arrested after his search.”

    From Brian: Well, Indians are not pals with Muslims who dominate there enemy country Pakistan. Hard to believe Indians are helping a Muslim in a terrorist act. However the Mossad (Israel’s intelligence agency) collaborates with the Indian intelligence agency and is eager to blame the Muslims. The Iran war is now more acceptable to Americans.

  6. Brian  December 28, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    I just watched the ridiculous Zionist ABC News report on the Nigerian bomber. They stated that an Al Qaeda organization based in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack. There is no bricks and mortar Al Qaeda organization; it’s a philosophy of resistance against American imperialism.

    Anybody can take a franchise including intelligence organizations. Israel’s intelligence agency the Mossad is will known for framing Muslims for terrorist attacks. Sometimes they infiltrate or create Muslim groups and mastermind the attacks. Sometimes they use their special agents who are experts at appearing and acting like Muslims. This is well known by the average person in the Middle East outside of Israel.

    I don’t know if the Mossad was involved in this event but a Yemen Al Qaeda group claiming responsibility adds to my suspicion.

    From an article: This information will not surprise any Arab living in the Middle East:

    Tuesday, 7 October 2008

    Yemen seizes ‘Israel-linked’ cell
    Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has said the security forces have arrested a group of alleged Islamist militants linked to Israeli intelligence.

    The arrests were connected with an attack on the US embassy in Sanaa last month which killed at least 18 people, official sources were quoted saying.

    “A terrorist cell was arrested and will be referred to the judicial authorities for its links with the Israeli intelligence services,” Mr Saleh told a gathering at al-Mukalla University in Hadramawt province.


  7. Brian  December 28, 2009 at 7:55 pm

    Well, based on your comments about their amazing equipment how the heck did the man whose name is in a special file get on the plane with a bomb strapped to his leg?

    Perhaps he told security personnel it was a phony bomb to add some hilarity to the flight and they smiled and let him on the plane and asked a stewardess to give him a properly chilled martini? Oh my. Somehow more Muslims will probably be arrested and tossed in jail.

    If intelligence agencies were deviously involved, they have their ways of covering up their mistakes. Bribes, threats and using connections with powerful people?

    Gordon you stated this:The airport in Amsterdam has a highly sophisticated facial recognition system on their HD CCTV system. The whole incident will be, not only in glorious living color but audio as well. They will be able to identify the “indian” if he has ever come into any European airport.

    From Brian: That sounds good. If by some chance they claim they have no video of the man or a grumpy wolverine ate the video I will get a little suspicious. Here is a good reason:

    From an article:

    does it make any sense that a supposed terrorist would choose to board a plane at the most Israeli-linked airport in Europe, where both ICTS and Shin Bet have control, where total body scanners are in use that should in theory detect his bomb?
    In short, this kid walks right past the scanners, past ICTS, past Shin Bet, gets on a plane, has his bomb fizzle, and announces he works for Al Qaeda.
    No Hollywood writer could come up with a plot line that stupid.

    http://whatreallyhappened.com/de/content/bomb-suspect-may-be-prominent -bankers-son

    The Israeli owned security firm ICTS that also provided security at two of the 911 attack airports had no video of the so called terrorists boarding the 911 planes. Only one video that was proven to be a fake and was quickly removed from the public and one that showed the fake Mohamed Atta at the Portland, Maine airport which was not an attack airport.

    The Israeli ICTS people being involved in the Amsterdam airport security does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

    • duffster  December 28, 2009 at 7:27 pm

      I have sat at the end of the terminal in Amsterdam where El Al does their passenger screening. They do a drive-out and load there…no direct walkon.

      without giving way national secrets, go to

      http://www.roamzonesecuritysystems.com and see what airport scanners can do.

      They can sample spectrum analysis from your shoes or belt at 250 feet and biometrically tag you for life…and do.

      The ‘facial recognition’ stuff is for telling amateurs about. Technology is decades beyond that.

      PETN, hidden under clothing can be picked up by a hyper-spatial camera at 500 to 1000 feet outdoors.

      The scanners are just for show. You are scanned before you reach the door to the airport.

      You are usually identified before you park your car or get off the train, bus or shuttle.

      Reality check time boys. This is what I do.

  10. Brian  December 28, 2009 at 4:47 pm

    It seems the well dressed man that reportedly assisted the Nigerian bomber was probably of Indian decent. Hmmm, based on my research the majority of terror attacks blamed on Muslims were probably not masterminded by Muslims.

    Intelligence organizations, especially Israel’s Mossad has been accused for years of orchestrating terror attacks and blaming them on Muslims. The London Train Bombings was a classic “use Muslims as patsies” in order to demonize Muslims and attempt to start a war.

    Since the Indian intelligence agency often collaborates with the Mossad I just wonder if anyone will look into this angle. All angles should be evaluated.

  11. disgusted  December 28, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    Yep,, seems that 40% increase in the federal payroll has really paid off!
    I feel SO much safer!
    When the Bush boys created an entirely new bureaucracy to ensure that all intelligence would be better shared I knew we were in very big trouble.
    Curious to see what the mainstream media was saying sunday night I watched “60 Minutes.” They were interviewing Henry Crumpton,, the ex CIA tool who still believes that Osama is still alive and active,, and Crumpton said that another terrorist attack was certain to be coming to America. He surely did his best to scare any fool who might have been watching.
    More fear, more war,, easy formula. “60 Minutes” has proven itself to be little more than a
    mouthpiece for the Pentagon warmongers.
    As long as we continue to send federal tax dollars to Washington we will continue to watch our dollars enable this senseless war machine. We enable it.
    We can’t even keep some dimwit teenager from trying to light himself up on a plane.
    Give me a break,, this is embarrassing.
    But I guess as long as people have jobs working for the federal government, there will be less fuss about the waste. Perhaps their plan is to have a third of Americans working for the federal government in order to prevent a revolution. Federal jobs were being talked about all day here on the radio,, seems they need more census workers,,, yeah,, more government employees,,, yeah,, I get it.
    You’re either with us or against us. Man,, is this out of control!
    Change I can believe in? Depressing. Secession,,, an intelligent and legal alternative. The absolute arrogance and sophomoric waste is such a national shame.

  12. Brian  December 28, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    I am wondering if an intelligence organization clandestinely recruited the bomb carrying passenger for this event in order to keep the “war against Muslim terrorists” an important issue with the public. To me terrorism is very exaggerated yet it’s important to justify wars that are actually for natural resources and the stealing of Muslim land. Were the CIA or the Mossad involved? I don’t know.

    Important information from an article: A passenger who boarded Northwest Airlines Flight 253 in Amsterdam with attempted plane bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab says the would-be terrorist had no passport and was aided by a sharp-dressed man who claimed Mutallab was a Sudanese refugee, just one of a plethora of startling inconsistencies surrounding an incident that has led to ramped up security and increased levels of harassment in airports.

    According to Kurt Haskell, an attorney with the Haskell Law Firm in Taylor, Michigan, “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.”

    Mutallab was a poorly dressed, young looking individual, but he was accompanied by a man in an expensive suit, Haskell told MLive.com.

    “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.’”

    Although Mutallab is Nigerian, Haskell said the well-dressed man portrayed him as a desperate Sudanese refugee in an attempt to elicit sympathy and as a way of bypassing his lack of documents.
    “The ticket agent referred Mutallab and his companion to her manager down the hall, and Haskell didn’t see Mutallab again until after he allegedly tried to detonate an explosive on the plane,” states the report.

      A big DUH on this one

      I wonder how many cover stories will come out today. Before they are done they will have blamed this on you, I am sure.

      The airport in Amsterdam has a highly sophisticated facial recognition system on their HD CCTV system.

      The whole incident will be, not only in glorious living color but audio as well.

      They will be able to identify the “indian” if he has ever come into any European airport.

      Maybe India has become Islamic. I know its crowded and they get awfully confused.

    Duffy, you hit the nail on the head.for me a quasi tin foil hatter yes this could be the backdoor terrorist job from the plants by the bush administration.there is no doubt the racist and the insane religous right want this president to go down on the other hand it could just be stupidity,however there is a lot of evidence for the failure or total demise of obama and his close advisors.

  14. Mike Bailey  December 28, 2009 at 2:37 pm

    Why do people even speak before they know all the facts? The man had a 2 year visa that was approved a year ago while Bush was still the President, it was only in the past few months the mans father told the US embassy in Nigeria his son was a danger, the process to advance him from a watch list to a “no fly list” was ineffective so who designed the process? Does it need to be changed the answer is obviously yes, even today Al Qaida in Arabia is claiming the attack was in retaliation of the airstrikes last week in Yemen, although the mans ticket was bought and paid for on Dec 15 days before the sir strikes in Yemen.

    Can we stop all “terrorist attacks” no they will happen, it is how we react to them that will define us as a nation, should we now invade Yemen? No, should the CIA and DIA step up actions by all means should we deploy the marines NO, we can NOT keep starting occupations of any and all nations that have terrorists, it’s not feasible is it?

    Let’s just be thankful no one died, but keeping 70 and 80 year olds in their seats for the last hour of each flight and away from bathrooms is a childish way to handle this. No bottles for babies etc, over reaction is worse than no action.

    Lieberman needs to retire he does not help anyone he is the party of Joe he makes Zell Miller seem sane.

    • duffster  December 28, 2009 at 5:37 pm


      How can you have a 2 year visa and be on a terrorist watch list? You could also point out that, while on that list, he would not have been able to enter the United Kingdom, which he had done several times.

      If he did have a visa and had a lifelong history of Islamic extremism, how did he pass that?

      Do we have information on when he was put on the watchlist? It was not his father that put him there.

      We show a 2008 visa which, however, should have never been issued. The process is still there…Islamic activist.

      Now we are saying he only came to notice 4 weeks ago?

  15. ulysees  December 28, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    to blame a previous administration for the complete ineptitude of the current administration seems improper. if the current community organizer in chief can’t put together a proper new administration, how is this bushs’ fault? this ninny has been in office just shy a year. yet he can’t/hasn’t put together anything but a bunch of thugs as czars of his own picking. maybe they told him in chicago that all this would be easy. the homeland security chieftess is a terrible joke on the americans that depend on secure travel. maybe a new stimulus package to outfit every airport in the world with our technology and personel? think of the job creation.

    • duffster  December 28, 2009 at 5:12 pm

      I disagree. Bush loaded every federal agency with appointments in key positions that would take years to eliminate, especially Homeland Security.

      When you look at the Hassan attendance at the “transition” meeting at George Washington University, you will see it to be ONLY a meeting of Bush officials arranging for this.

      That Hassan was part of it and then turned out to be a terrorist should upset you a bit.
