We know why you fly

1) Parents warn American embassy that their Nigerian son has become a radicalized Islamist and worry that he'll strap a bomb on himself and blow Americans up
2) Great Britain revokes Nigerian man's Visa because he tried to enter GB on "false pretenses"
3) Nigerian's name is included in database of known Islamic terrorists, but database watch list doesn't stop him from traveling to U.S.
4) Nigerian man buys ticket to Detroit with cash
5) Nigerian man boards flight from Amsterdam to Detroit with only carry on luggage
6) Nigerian terroist backed by Al Qaeda tries to blow up plane over Detroit

Sounds to me like a bunch of giant red flags were ignored and we're lucky this guy's plan was thwarted by an alert passenger.
