    Oklahoma man held before boarding plane with bomb

    OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma man was taken into custody after he tried to carry a bomb on board an airplane on Wednesday in Oklahoma City, an
    FBI spokesman said.

    Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr., 24, was detained on Wednesday morning after a security screener using an X-ray machine saw the device in his luggage as he tried to board a flight to Philadelphia at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City.

    "Although the investigation is in its initial stages we have found no apparent connection to any type of terrorist activity or group," FBI spokesman Gary Johnson said.

    Johnson said the screener saw an "improvised explosive device" in Dreyling's carry-on luggage.

    A woman answering the phone at Dreyling's home on Wednesday night declined to discuss the matter.

    Johnson said Dreyling would be charged in federal court on Thursday with possession of an explosive device at an airport.

    I don't want to be too harsh on this guy. If he's guilty I would favor letting out of jail after 200 years or so.

    Kudos to the airport screeners who never seem to get any compliments.

    If this guy wants to blow up a plane with himself in it, then put him in one of those old war planes that sit in that desert. Put some TNT under him and blast away. Give 'em what he wants.

    Exactly. So much for the profiling argument from the conservatives.

    For once can we make this discussion more insightful that a "us vs. them" dung-slinging fest?

    Surprise me. Give the front office here a reason to keep these threads open.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I don't know what you been reading but I have seen many well in-depth analysis on issues from both sides of the aisle many with valid points. "For once" means that there has never been an insightfull discussion in your opinion and I strongly disagree with that assessment.

    Re: Oklahoma man held before boarding plane with bomb

    Gee! A Oklahoma man caught in his home state of Oklahoma, trying to board a plane with a bomb, and this proves that OVERALL profiling doesn't work? What was his intent in doing so? It's not yet known. Obviously a deranged or mentally disturbed individual. If it is discovered that it was due to a radical Islamic teaching telling him to do so, and he wanted to kill as many American infidels as he could, then some may have an argument. I doubt that is the reasoning we'll discover as to why though. In other words, its not something we are seeing as a consistent pattern. Can we say the same with the other?

    I'm glad he was stupid enough to hide it in his luggage.... where at AIRPORTS all luggage is screened. So he was bound to get caught. Why? We have implemented the technology, in this particular instance, that was pretty much gonna catch him - an x-ray machine.

    The fact is - we have a situation/climate in this world now were foreign terrorists from a particular ethnic region/background, and following a perverted form of Islam, have already done so, and continue to target mass transit systems and heavily populated areas, in order to kill as many innocent as possible.

    And if some want to naively dismiss that fact, then so be it.

    Bu as Jaycint pointed out - how was he caught? Is it feasible to use such screeners at subway stations, such as NYC for example, where large amounts of people are going to and fro? If so - GREAT! Do it!

    That is all, and any American, regardless of ideology, is asking. But the fact is - civil liberties group think that even those search methods are an intrusion and unconstitutional.

    I don't want or even like profiling. I hope they do come up with the technology that makes it obsolete. Possibly thermal imaging devices to detect explosives and weapons. Machines are great; but they can't subdue the suspect.
