Here we go again, another “walk through” by Israeli security
You cannot put a deported terrorist on a commercial airline, especially by himself. It it grossly illegal to do such. Anyone on the no fly list, which all terrorist suspects are supposed to be on, can never fly commercial for the rest of their lives.

In another interview on Inside Edition, Haskell described what happened:
Attorney Kurt Haskell – shoe bomber witness
An earlier CBS news report today stated:
Let’s look at the Wayne Madsen report on the failures at the airport in Amsterdam along with direct ties between this case and the shoe bomber Richard Reid:
Wayne Madsen Report on Schiphol
The Mutallab case also resembles that of another attempted plane bombing, that of the hapless “shoe bomber” Richard Reid.
Madsen points out the well-established family ties to Yemen thru his wife. He further points out how Israel managed to bring the terrorist son of Mutallab through multiple airport security obstacles with the same ease the United States shepherded a known terrorist through a visa process. What we hadn’t seen is how much this process had been tested during the “shoe bomber” episode.
For a number of years, passengers at Schiphol flying to the United States have been subjected to intense grilling by security personnel linked to an Israeli firm.
US bound passengers at Schiphol are asked a number of personal questions, including where they have stayed either in the Netherlands or in their country of origin. Hotel receipts are routinely requested by security personnel and the addresses of private temporary residences are recorded.
Mutallab boarded a KLM flight in Lagos for Schiphol where he transited for his onward flight to Detroit on Northwest/Delta.
Shoe Bomber, Richard ReidSix months prior to Reid’s near shoe bombing of American Airlines flight 63 from Paris to Miami in December 2001, while memories of 9/11 were still fresh in everyone’s mind, Reid attempted to board an El Al flight from Schiphol to Tel Aviv.
Reid was taken aside by El Al security and identified as a terrorist suspect. Reid paid for a one-way ticket with cash and would not reveal what he planned to do in Israel.
