LINK: Nigeria banker fears son is alleged plane attacker - Yahoo! News will someone please explain to me why a man on a terrorist watch list was let on the mother f*cking plane to begin with? why even bother to have the freaking list? i get my ass jumped at airport security for having a tiny tube of lip gloss in my purse, yet a man with suspected terrorist ties apparently has no problem. this does not inspire confidence in the "system".
