Alert ticket agents at the Continental Airlines ticket counter in Houston may have recently averted a major terrorist strike in the United States.
The drama began to unfold when a passenger named Edward Allen attempted to board a flight to New York. His name turned out to be on the Federal government's no-fly list. Allen was immediately detained and questioned for several hours. Suspicions grew when the alleged perpetrator was unable to provide a drivers license. Nevertheless, Allen--who no doubt was a well trained and highly disciplined Al Qaeda operative--stuck to his ridiculous story of being a four year old toddler.
I feel safer already.
