President wants everyone but himself to pay more
Topic - Richard Reid
Ten years ago last month, the now-infamous "shoe bomber," Richard Reid, boarded an American Airlines flight bound for Miami from Paris, intending to kill himself and all of the other passengers by detonating an explosive device he had concealed in his shoes. What was unknown at the time is that Reid was not supposed to act alone. Saajid Badat - like Reid a British citizen - was supposed to ignite his own pair of explosive shoes on a different trans-Atlantic flight, but he dropped out in the plot's final stages.
The Obama administration is accusing Republicans of enabling Islamic terrorism. The White House has sent out John Brennan, President Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, to defend its mishandling of the failed Christmas Day bomber.
"From 50 scholarships in 1981 to more than 250 this year, more than 3,200 McNeese students have directly benefited from H.C. Drew funds," said Richard Reid, vice president for university advancement and executive vice president of the McNeese Foundation.
He said he and Reid met the leader of the Malaysian group at a McDonald's and afterward gave the group one of Badat's shoe bombs.
