Newport couple: A passenger on Northwest flight 253 had a bomb inside his carry-on bag

Editor's note: This story was recounted by a couple who claim they were on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253. I can not confirm the veracity of this story. It may or may not be true:

Kurt and Lori Haskell, who were allegedly on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 and sat seven rows behind Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian terrorist who tried to ignite an incendiary device on the plane, claim that after the flight had landed, a bomb-sniffing dog was sent in to check the bags, and that something was detected in another passenger’s carry-on bag.

The New Port MI. couple also claim that an Indian man tried to help Mr. Abdulmutallab board the plane without a passport. Source - Monroe News

Bear in mind, that even if Mr. Abdulmutallab managed to board the plane in Amsterdam without a passport, it does not negate the fact that he was issued a US visa and that the TSDB refused to include him in their 'no fly' list, undoubtedly a byproduct of Obama's politically correct and inept policies.

Kurt Haskell also talked with MLive.com about the incident and had a little bit more to say:

FBI also arrested a different Indian man while we were held in customs after a bomb sniffing dog detected a bomb in his carry on bag and he was searched after we landed...

While we were in customs..., an FBI agent said to us "You are being moved to another area because this area is not safe. Read between the lines. Some of you saw what just happened."(The arrest of the other Indian man). I am not sure why this hasn't made it into any news story, but I stood about 15-20 feet away from the other Indian man when he was cuffed and arrested after his search.

What also didn't make the news is that we were held on the plane for 20 minutes AFTER IT LANDED!. A bomb could have gone off then. This wasn't too smart of security to not let us off the plane immediately.
I haven't the foggiest notion if this story is true or not, or if what security personnel found inside the passenger's carry on baggage was indeed a bomb, but if both of these things are true, it would mean the Obama administration is playing damage control and is not telling us the complete story. However, I reiterate once again that this story may be a total fabrication, or the couple might have misconstrued what had they had seen. We'll find out the truth in due time.
