Probably wasn’t concerned about Double Miles on his card, though

For al-Qaida, Detroit was just the cheapest flight

When an admitted al-Qaida operative planned his itinerary for a Christmas 2009 airline bombing, he considered launching the strike in the skies above Houston or Chicago, The Associated Press has learned. But tickets were too expensive, so he refocused the mission on a cheaper destination: Detroit.

When I’ve said (in conversation) that my family is included in the list of legitimate targets kept by our enemies, I’ve been told that I have nothing to worry about because Murdoc doesn’t live near any real high-profile targets. Well, what if flights into Gerald R Ford International are discounted?


  1. Wow, looks like we really are bleeding their finances dry.

    That’s a pretty big change from 9/11, when the pukes lived large and spent big bucks on strippers in the days before they martyred themselves.

    This is not nearly as glamorous. Can’t be good for recruiting.

  2. Murdoc is spot on……….anyone who thinks it’s impossible in their backyard is “livin’ the dream”.
