Handcuffed In Seattle

I give up. Clearly we are doomed. Let ninme tell the story.
A young man, on a watchlist, shopped to the CIA by his own father, who spent time in Al Qaeda-controlled lands learning “Arabic,” who began his travels in sketchy west Africa, who paid cash for his ticket, who checked no luggage, who HAD NO PASSPORT, gets on a flight and tries to blow up a plane.
A noted and respected war journalist and blogger lands at SeaTac and gets arrested by TSA officials who want to know how much money he makes.
Arrest the heroes, let the bombers through.
