Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the man accused of trying to blow up an airplane over metro Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, appeared in federal court Tuesday. A trial date has now been set.
However, it was actually more interesting to hear from a couple of the passengers that showed up at court. They had an interesting theory about what really happened.
“The U.S. government escorted them through security without a passport and, we believe, gave him an intentionally defective bomb,” said Kurt Haskell.
It’s a startling allegation from two local attorneys that were on-board the 2009 Christmas Day flight to Detroit when Abdulmutallab allegedly tried to blow up a bomb hidden in his underwear.
