Saudi Man Arrives at Detroit Airport with Pressure Cooker in Suitcase

This one surely will be chalked up under the ‘stupid criminals’ chapter, or maybe the “Oh, for God’s Sakes.” Pressure Cooker-500x500

A man flying in from Saudi Arabia this weekend was stopped by a Customs agent. He apparently had a few pages missing from his Passport (unbeknownst to him, of course). And when the agents looked in his suitcase he had brought along a pressure cooker (maybe not realizing there are Walmarts in the US?)

It has not been a month since terrorists killed and maimed many through the use of a pressure cooker bomb in Boston.

However, the ever helpful people at CAIR urged caution.

“I hope that our government is not criminalizing people if they travel and have cooking items just because they are Muslim or come from the Muslim world,” said Director Dawud Walid. “I don’t think someone flying with an empty pressure cooker elevates to a level of terrorism unless the government has some other sound information.”
