Baggage screener fired for rapping about terror

HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- 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.

"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."
Messed up?!?!?!?

Well, I guess that he got the attention that he was craving.

some people's children... sheesh!

It also shows a total lack of ability to improvise. He could have read the thread and posted relevant thoughts in that space.

Where the hell is that? :D I can't spell it either, so I just use GITMO. (I was in the navy, and since the marines are the navy's army, I think I can use the contraction without being called out for never having been there).

And GITMO, is what this rapper should be getting...besides, every body knew the beggining of the end was in sight when the Sugar Hill Gang hit their peak. Rap died when ICE-T came out with the cop killer album...
