No, but like he said...

' "Controversy sells," Khalaf said. "It brings a lot of attention. Everybody wants to label all Arabics terrorists just because a couple of people messed up. Well, I'm going to play along with that character. I'm going to let you think I'm one." '

He's asking for alot of trouble. Not sure he should've been fired, though.

It was this same type of empathy, tacit support, and lack of will to condemn that led to Manzanar and similar camps in Canada. If Khalaf doesn't believe what he is saying, not only is a charlatan as an artist, but he is ignorant of history and is in for a dose of reality.

I'm surprised the FBI didn't send some field agents down to IAH and question this dude after they found out all that stuff on the internet. I thought DHS was all into fighting the war on terror via the internet.

Surely all employers Google before appointment nowadays, can't be held up as an invasion of privacy, the web is a public domain.

HOUSTON - When Bassam Khalaf raps, he's the Arabic Assassin. His unreleased CD, "Terror Alert," includes rhymes about flying a plane into a building and descriptions of himself as a "crazy, suicidal Arabic ... equipped with bombs."

Until last week, Khalaf also worked as a baggage screener at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

"I've been screening your bags for the past six months, and you don't even know it," said Khalaf, who also said Thursday that he is not really a terrorist and that his rhymes are exaggerations meant to gain publicity.


yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. Ok.

This guy is (in the words of my boss) Stupid #1.
