My Son The Terrorist

Suspected terrorist. But still.

Alhaji Umaru Mutallab thinks that the guy who was arrested for trying to bomb a plane might be his son. MIGHT be.

In Nigeria, the father told The Associated Press that his son, a former university student in London, had left Britain to travel abroad and may have gone to Yemen, an unstable country on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula where al-Qaida has increasingly found safe havens.

The AP story adds that “Alhaji Umaru Mutallab said he didn’t know exactly where his son was and planned to speak with Nigerian authorities Saturday.”

Methinks saying that you don’t know where the kid is is the right move at this point. “Oh, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab? My son? Yes, I know where he is. He’s getting on a plane. Said he has a new friend — Al Kie something? Kie Dough? Can’t remember. Just glad he’s got something to hang with during the holidays.”
