Tonight on 360°, new calls for RNC Michael Steele to resign after a series of gaffes on his watch. Meantime, Sarah Palin with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann at an event in Minneapolis today and giving a shout-out to the tea party movement. We've got the raw politics. Plus, the U.S. government targeting an American-born Muslim cleric. It says Anwar al-Awlaki needs to be killed or captured. Details in tonight's crime and punishment report.

    smoking on a plane? wait, is this 1983?

    Why should diplomats have "immunity" on such activities? They should not. Anything remotely terrorist or criminal – they should be held accountable. Otherwise, fly your own aircraft man!! I think the society is owed some assurance of safety from 'diplomat' MORONs!!!

    Truly hope it is some kind of "misunderstanding" and Not a real security issue.

    How morbid to be using Earl Woods' recorded voice out of context. And for profit. And approved by Tiger. Wow. A sick new low for tiger and nike, if that’s possible.

    @carolyn j

    how did he fet the lighter on the flight? or matches? because i smoke they all way's take my my lighters and matches... see i would rather them strp people naked if need be, i fly alot when they detain me i don't get angrt because i understand safety.american workers are to easy at tsa.

    I guess they're not doing a good enough job...i travelled over Easter and got on a total of 5 different flights... i had a lighter on me and all flights did not even confiscate it from me. This disturbed me! Really! I could've done all sorts of things with that lighter on those flights...

    At least there were air marshalls on board to protect the plane. It is a relief it was not a terrorist attempt. No security is fool proof.

  27. LisaL -Canada

    not only would it be stupid to make a joke like that at an airport, but trying to sneak a smoke on the plane wasn't too brilliant either

    People who would joke about something like this are dangerous.

    So glad it's not a bomb. The guy is an idiot if he made a joke about it. In fact, I think its a federal charge.
