No danger here. Move along.

From Fox News: The Qatari diplomat who caused all the angst was on his way to meet an imprisoned Al Qaeda operative:

The 27-year-old Qatari diplomat who caused a full-blown, midair security scare when he tried to sneak a cigarette and then joked about it will probably be catching the next flight to Doha, a senior State Department official said Thursday.

“His ability to function effectively has been compromised,” the official said, adding that the diplomat will probably not be returning to the United States after the incident.

Fox News also has confirmed that the diplomat was on his way to Denver for a consular visit with a jailed Al Qaeda operative — perhaps adding to the tension with the U.S. government.

The State Department comment came after officials already were calling for Mohammed Al-Madadi to either be recalled or expelled for doing just about “everything wrong” on board the United Airlines flight to Denver late Wednesday.

Thank goodness he wanted that cig real bad.
