Today's Seattle Times reports that
Two Pakistani men are being held in Seattle after an airline employee at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport found one of their names on a terrorism-related no-fly list Saturday night.Some friendly advice to all aspiring al-Qaeda sleepers: After you successfully infiltrate into the United States, avoid getting on airplanes where you might be detected. Instead, why not hang out in Seattle, where the city government will celebrate and protect you.
One of the men, 36, carrying a British Columbia driver's license, paid cash for a one-way ticket to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport. After the airline employee called 911, the man left the counter, abandoning his ticket.
The other man, 29, who had a New York driver's license, also paid cash for a one-way ticket to Kennedy Airport on a different airline, police reports show.
After their arrests, the men told investigators they paid to be smuggled into [Washington state] from Canada last month, two sources said.
