Let the "Why Do They Mistrust Us?" Laments Begin

The Nigerian Vice President, Goodluck Jonathan, spoke about the Christmas Day attack by one of Nigeria's citizens:

"The vice president lamented the incident where a Nigerian is alleged to have attempted to bomb an American aircraft, describing it as another challenge to the Nigerian government and people," said a statement from his office released late on Sunday.

"This will bring unnecessary harassments and scrutiny to other Nigerians who want to travel outside the country," he said.

Far be it for me to suggest this is less about their convenience than our safety.
I guess this reminds me to be grateful that Vice President Biden hasn't commented on the attack.
