Como si el Nóbel le hubiera dado pase ilimitado para hacer babosada y media, ahora viene con sus nuevos controles y su discriminación. ¿Que otra cosa es?
La Administración de Seguridad en el Transporte (TSA en inglés) de Estados Unidos publicó la lista de países en los que se hará mayor hincapié en la revisión de viajeros, luego de que un pasajero trató de hacer estallar un avión de Northwest Airlines que estaba a punto de aterrizar en Detroit
Las nuevas medidas de seguridad aplicarán para todos los pasajeros, pero a los que provengan de las naciones de riesgo para EU serán sometidos a revisiones de cuerpo completo y de su equipaje a los que provengan o hagan escala en:
- Arabia Saudí
y a Chandler Bing nadie le puso “peros” para irse a Yemen escapando de la Janice…
Y la gente va y dice cosas como “Si no tengo nada que ocultar, no debo temer pasar por esas máquinas”…bla bla bla… ¡como siempre! a la gente sólo le importa cuando ya las cosas le afectan personalmente. No piensan en cómo estresan a gente de esos países, los discriminan y atrasan sus itinerarios también.
“Si yo no atacara o interviniera en otros países, no tendría nada que temer”, diría yo.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama prepared Tuesday to update the public about steps the government is taking to keep it safe after an alleged terrorist’s failed attempt to destroy a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner on Christmas Day.
Gibbs declined comment on whether anyone would lose their jobs because of the incident, saying the reviews were yet to be completed.
Since the attempted attack, the government has added dozens of names to its lists of suspected terrorists and those barred from flights bound for the United States.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian who claims ties to al-Qaida, remained in federal custody, charged with trying to destroy the Northwest Airlines flight as it approached Detroit. He is alleged to have smuggled an explosive device on board the aircraft and set if off, but the device sparked only a fire and not the intended explosion.
Abdulmutallab’s name was in the U.S. database of about 550,000 suspected terrorists, but was not on a list that would have subjected him to additional security screening or kept him from boarding the flight altogether. That omission prompted a review of the National Counterterrorism Center’s massive Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) database.
The U.S. has dramatically stepped up counterterrorism aid to Yemen, and President Barack Obama over the weekend promised a close partnership with San’a to fight the al-Qaida offshoot in the country. The group is blamed in the Christmas attempt to bomb a U.S. passenger jet.
Yemen’s government has enthusiastically accepted the aid and has vowed to act against the group, carrying out its heaviest strikes against its hideouts in years last month, with U.S. help.
However, Yemeni officials have repeatedly said Western aid should be limited to training and funding counterterror forces, apparently worried that Washington will try to take a major role in directing the fight. They have repeatedly shown discontent over suggestions Yemen cannot handle the job itself.
On Monday, Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi dismissed warnings by some in the United States that Yemen could spiral into greater instability like Afghanistan and Pakistan.
“The situation in Yemen is different and cannot be compared to Afghanistan and Pakistan,” al-Qirbi told journalists during a visit to Qatar, according to Yemeni media.
“There is international concern over al-Qaida in Yemen, and Yemen is able to deal with these groups,” he said. “But it is in need of help in training and preparing its counterterrorism forces, as well as economic aid because at the heart, the problem is economic.”
Over the weekend, the head of Yemen’s National Security Agency, Ali al-Anisi, played down the threat of terrorism in his country, “Yemen is not a refuge for al-Qaida, as some claim. These are exaggerations.”
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that internal unrest and a surge in al-Qaida activity in Yemen pose a global threat.
Clinton praised the Yemeni government for recent steps it has taken to combat extremists but said that at the London conference the United States and its allies will tell the Yemeni government that there are “expectations and conditions” it must meet for it to continue to enjoy support from the West.
