    I have noticed that EVERY time the news points out that someone is a "U.S. citizen" what they really mean is that the person is an immigrant from some shit hole country. It's kinda like "young person" or "group of teens" ALWAYS equals black people. When it is a white guy that was born here, they never point it out. "Josh Rawdon, 27, a natural-born American, is charged with..." I wonder what other "News Codes" we will start to pick up on as things get more and more PC.

    What a gay plan. The most this plane could probably carry is like 5lbs of C-4. What the fuck is that amount of explosives really going to destroy from the outside of a building? Obviously 5lbs inside a room would fuck shit up, but crashing into the outside and exploding would probably be a waste of time.

    While you are pretty much correct, I will say one thing in defense of that practice - there are different issues when dealing with foreign vs. domestic terrorism. For example, if he was a foreign national the first question is "how did he get in?" With a domestic terrorist, that's not an issue, etc.

    Oh, I know there is a huge difference, but to the news, shouldn't every U.S. citizen be considered equally an American? You know what I am trying to say here? Once you are accepted as a U.S. citizen, you're in the club and should be treated just like any other citizen. I just think it's funny how you don't even have to hear the name of the person to know that they are a foreigner as soon as you hear the broadcaster say, "A U.S. citizen is charged with planning a terrorist plot..."

    Yup. By hysterically trying to avoid sounding racist, they actually end up sounding racist. That's political correctness in a nutshell.

    Most likely a steady diet of Jersey Shore and Keeping Up with the Kardashians episodes supplemented with videos of squirrels riding Jet Skis.

    Hipsters. Once everyone started doing it in the '70s, it wasn't cool anymore. Luckily for aspiring hipster terrorists, that timetable means that jihad is almost vintage. As soon as all the posers die off via suicide bombing, it'll be cool again.

    My uncle (Robert s. Fagenhouse) is a janitor at one of the pentagon inner rings. He wasn't worried in the least, after they got nine elevened they set up a proton force field surrounding the whole building. He was actually out on comp for a few weeks because he broke his nose on it running back from his lunch break.

    All citizens are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    Come back to the board when you have some factual information and learn how to spell.

    This has to be one of the most retarded terrorist plots in the history of retarded terrorist plots. This makes strapping bombs to retards look like a good idea.

    How would you activate C-4 in this situation? A pressure switch in the nose of the plane?

    I was under the impression that C-4 required an electrical charge to ignite.

    Easiest way is with a blasting cap. There Are electrically fired and percussion blasting caps. I only delt with the electric ones in the airforce. Like others have said, a remote control aircraft can't carry enough
    C-4 to do any serious damage.

    I thought I heard that the plan was to just use the explosions to get people to evacuate the buildings and then have snippers picking them off
