I sent this letter to Fox News, if anyone can find this stuff out it'll be them;
(In regards to the NYC times square bomber)
You shouldn't be asking how this terrorist was able to board a plane...you should be asking how many others have done so.
Check how many 1 way tickets are sold on Emirates, Saudi Air, Air Arabia, Libyan Airlines, Syrian Air....as compared to American & European Airlines. I'm sure you could get the manifests and cross check the ratio of "do not fly" passengers on those as compared to American and European as well. You are looking at the small picture and assuming it was a "mistake", what if this mistake has happened repeatedly?
