So, Extreme Freedom hits home. Excerpt... "I never heard the word 'bomb' on the plane," McAlhany told TIME in a telephone interview. "I never heard the word bomb until the FBI asked me did you hear the word bomb. That is ridiculous." Even the authorities didn't come out and say bomb, McAlhany says. "They asked, 'Did you hear anything about the b-word?'" he says. "That's what they called it."
Now, I think the official story, as of now, is that he may have said something about a bomb after he was off of the plane. So this fellow wouldn't have heard it, but it stuns me that this whole scenario seems to be largely acceptable. You feel safe? Seriously? An American citizen has been gunned down in his own country, by his own "protectors", for what seems to amount to a mentally ill man's panic attack... That's not something an American can lie down for is it?
There are some who are of the opinion that you have to "break a few eggs to make an omelette," Well, you may quickly find that position untenable when it is your egg being broken.
The man's name was Rigoberto Alpizar, he was a fellow citizen with a wife and family, and he was guilty of nothing.
