And what couldn't be funnier than a Muslim man trying to blow up 163 souls?
I'm not even going to bother with the notion that this was supposed to be humor, I would probably vomit.
What did catch my eye in this article though was this take on the whole incident by both the Ambassador of Qatar and a spokesman from the
US Office of Islamic Affairs US State Department.
A State Department spokesman told FoxNews.com the incident is currently being handled as a "law enforcement issue."
"If and when that changes ... the department may or may not have something to say on it," the spokesman said.
Qatar's U.S. ambassador, Ali Bin Fahad Al-Hajri, cautioned against a rush to judgment.
"This diplomat was traveling to Denver on official embassy business on my instructions, and he was certainly not engaged in any threatening activity," he said in a statement on his Washington embassy's Web site. "The facts will reveal that this was a mistake."
Just a few questions:
Where the Hell is the mistake here? How can a man smoking in an airplane bathroom illegally and then joking about blowing up the plane be some kind of a mistake?
Why the Hell isn't the State Department interested in this case?
