The man they call the underwear bomber entered a surprise guilty plea in a Detroit courtroom today. The terror suspect admitted he tried to blow up a jetliner to retaliate against the US.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab stunned the federal courtroom when his lawyer announced he wanted to plead guilty to all 8 counts against him including attempted murder and the attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The accused terrorist calmly and clearly told the judge he understood exactly what he was doing by pleading guilty . He admitted he tried to blow up a bomb in his pants on a jetliner from Amsterdam to Detroit two years ago. The judge asked him a series of questions to determine his competency, then she began to list the crimes he's accused of one by one.

Conspiracy to commit terrorism, attempted murder on an aircraft, attempted placement of a destructive device. The 25 year old man listened and agreed to everything including decades in prison the counts carry.

Abdulmutallab is the well educated son of a very wealthy Nigerian business man. In clear, well spoken English, he read a statement in court describing exactly what he did and why.

He said he had an agreement with at least one person to carry out the attack, and that his attempted bombing was to fulfill a religious obligation and to participate in Jihad and retaliate against the U.S. for its relationship with Israel and for the killings of his Muslim brothers and sisters around the world.

His letter of confession finally ended with a threat… The confessed terrorist said the U.S will eventually pay for what it has done.

    This dummy was used to help push the body scanners at airports. Eyewitness on the scene saw him being ushered thru customs without the proper paperwork and passports. His name was already on the watch list. Chertoff and others have made millions off this false flag and have further pushed this fake terrorist cartoon into the minds of so many millions of you sheep. Tell the real story and expose the real terrorist behind the curtain WCTV. The truth is but a google search away.

    Someone needs to give him back his underwear and let him finish the job by himself in an open field. He said he wanted to get to heaven not Detroit on that flight.
