Nappy Jan's people DECIDED NOT TO PICK UP THE PHONE, calling New York area air carriers regarding Faisal Shahzad, WHO SUCCESSFULLY planted a bomb in Times Square...that SUCCESSFULLY initiated.
Just exactly WHY...??? According to the story, the FBI asked the TSA not to call the airlines...except for a few domestic lines.
I've read that the Feds wanted Shahzad on the plane, perhaps hoping he would contact others in a network once he thought he was in a secure place...maybe even other passengers on the same flight.
Still, it sounds like a cluster-fark of the first water. There is no way the FBI will confirm the notion they asked TSA not to call. The TSA has made such calls in the past.
