Just caught this on MSNBC: [url]http://www.msnbc.com/news/676895.asp[/url] A man was subdued by passengers after a flight attendant witnessed him attempting to light what appeared to be a fuse in his shoe. The plane was escorted by F15 to Logan, where the suspect, bound by 20 leather belts by passengers, was handed over. His shoes contained a "C4-like substance." Can C-4 by detonated by flame? (If it is c-4) To the passengers who jumped and subdued this dirtbag: HOOOOYAAAAHHH!

That guy LOOKS like a frigging terrorist. If he came to my door, I'd shoot the SOB.

Heard on the radio yesterday that there was two doctors on board the plane and they "sedated" him some. Good old black bags!

I think if I were on that plane, the doctors would have not needed to sedate him. Maybe stitch him up a little....

From the reports, it sounds like this guy is a nut case looking for his 15 minutes of fame. Maybe the guy's under the influence of something? We will just have to stay tuned to see the facts as time goes on.

Why is it that the terms "exploding shoes" or "shoe-bombs" make me laugh? If they had worked, it would have been awful... BUT, when you get caught trying, and failing, to make your own shoes explode, you sure seem foolish.

This should be put in the manual: If a guy try to board a plane and he looks like Abbu from the Quick E Mart. And he has a passport with a white guys name on it. Search him a little more thoroughly than the other guy.

They should bring him down to Ground Zero, and set those loafers off, while he's wearing them. That outta be good for a few laughs.

CNN is reporting that he is from Sri Lanka of all places. Possibly a Tamal Tiger.

Tie him up to a bed mattress and stand him up in a tub of water. Get a car battery and have fun! [devil] Learned that from a Turkish Police Officer.
