Second Man Detained from NW Flt 253: Kurt Haskell Account Vindicated ?

Kurt Haskell and his wife were passengers on Northwest Flight 253 on Christmas Day. Kurt Haskell has a few stories to tell. The FBI is interested in Kurt and his stories, but their stories and Haskell's stories do not jive. Video below.

Kurt Haskell and Lori Haskell

According to Haskell, while waiting to board Northwest Flight 253, Kurt Haskell saw Abdulmutallab and a "smart dressed" Indian man at the flight desk. Haskell heard the "smart dressed" Indian man tell the person behind the desk that Abdulmutallab was a Sudanese refugee, had no passport and  needed to get on the flight." The desk attendant sent the two down the hall to a Manager's office. Haskell says the "smart dressed" man told the desk attendant "we do it all the time." That was the last Haskell saw of Abdulmutallab until the attempted bombing happened and the bomber was taken off of the aircraft.

After landing:

According to Haskell, everyone aboard 253 were detained with their carry-on luggage in an "evacuated luggage claim" area in the airport. Officials with bomb sniffing dogs arrived. The dogs hit on a bag belonging to a "30-ish Indian man." This Indian man was not the same man Haskell saw with the bomber inside the airport. Haskell calls this man "the man in orange." The man in orange was taken to another room by authorities. He was not handcuffed going into the room. He was handcuffed when he came out of the room.

Authorities then told the group they were being moved to another part of the terminal because "this area is not safe." Haskell said the entire time the passengers were detained (some 6 hours) no one but law enforcement was allowed into their area.

Here's the rest of the story:

After Kurt Haskell, an attorney in Michigan, told his story online about the bomber and the "smart dressed man" before boarding the plane, and the story of "the man in orange" being handcuffed and led away after deplaning, authorities refused to admit a second man was detained until about December 28th when FBI officials said "the man in orange," was simply a legitimate but "sick" businessman, and they deny [or have ignored] the story about the drug-sniffing dogs and the man taken away in handcuffs. At this time, the Dutch officials declare that Abdulmutallab had a valid Nigerian passport, despite the conversation Haskell says he overheard.
Here is a portion of a statement by Kurt Haskell:
The FBI has, since we landed, insisted that only one man was arrested for the airliner attack (contradicting my account). However, several of my fellow passengers have come over the past few days, backed up my claim, and put pressure on FBI/Customs to tell the truth. Early today, I heard from two different reporters that a federal agency (FBI or Customs) was now admitting that another man has been held (and will be held indefinitely) since our flight landed for "immigration reasons." Notice that this man was "being held" and not "arrested", which was a cute semantic ploy by the FBI to stretch the truth and not lie.

Just a question, could that mean that the man in orange had no passport?

However, a few hours later, Customs changed its story again. This time, Mr. Ron Smith of Customs, says the man that was detained "had been taken into custody, but today tells the news the person was a passenger on a different flight."
Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott has said a man was "verbally disruptive" which caused flight crew to request law enforcement meet the aircraft upon landing.

However the FBI later released a statement saying the man was not a threat to the flight and was merely ill.  "The investigation shows that this was a non-serious incident and all is clear," the bureau said.
Haskell is asking the Dutch police to release the video of the "sharp dressed man," which they admit they have viewed.
Please note that there is a very easy way to verify the veracity of my prior "sharp dressed man" account. Dutch police have admitted that they have reviewed the video of the "sharp dressed man" that I referenced.

Note that it has not been released anywhere, You see, if my eye witness account is false, it could easily be proven by releasing the video. However, the proof of my eyewitness account would also be verified if I am telling the truth and I am.

There is a reason we have only heard of the video and not seen it. dutch authorities, "RELEASE THE VIDEO!"
