A Nigerian man who said he was an agent for al-Qaida tried to blow up the Northwest Airlines plane Friday as it was preparing to land in Detroit, but travelers who smelled smoke and heard what sounded like firecrackers rushed to subdue him, the passengers and federal officials said.Not much information yet but it looks as if the herorism of everyday citizens may have saved this flight from possible disaster and tragedy. The politically correct Democrat White House may try to sweep it under the rug but any way you put it, it's called terrorism.
Flight 253 with 278 passengers and 11 crew members aboard was about 20 minutes from the airport when passengers heard popping noises, witnesses said. At least one person climbed over others and jumped on the man. Shortly afterward, the suspect was taken to the front of the plane with his pants cut off and his legs burned, a passenger said.

Hey, White House: It's called t-e-r-r-o-r-i-s-m
We are not safe ... terrorists have not given up.
