Flight diverted because of Christmas ornament

I know there are real jihadists in the world. I really do. I know there are Muslims who want to kill us. I've studied Islam for many years. I know what their scripture teaches. But do you ever get the feeling that jihadists see stories like this and think, "Why even bother? These silly Americans are afraid of their own shadow!" Home of the brave...HA!

    Associated Press -

    A spokesman says a Northwest Airlines flight from Detroit was briefly diverted to Tennessee after someone found a suspicious package that turned out to be a Christmas ornament.

    Delta Air Lines spokesman Carlos Santos wasn't sure who found the package midway through the flight to Orlando, Fla., or why they thought it was suspicious. He says the flight was diverted "out of an abundance of caution."

    The 75 passengers and five crew members on Northwest flight 2364 were taken off the plane in Nashville around 8 a.m. Friday while dogs searched it.

    They were allowed to reboard about two hours later. It was a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit that authorities say a Nigerian man tried and failed to blow up last week.

    Delta Air Lines owns Northwest.
