Unsurprisingly, Canada's champions of "accountability" and "personal responsibility" want you to understand that it's always someone else's fault. But then, a curiosity:
There is also the detail that the woman who came off the plane was photographed and the woman who was then trying to get on the plane did not match the photograph.
It was the Kenyan security at the airport who caught this. It was not just the passport photo.
Um ... say what? This is the first I've heard of this little detail. Does security at Kenya's airports actually take a photograph of every single arrival, then manually compare that photo with each outgoing passenger? Really? Because I can't imagine the logistical nightmare that would ensue.
And again, unsurprisingly, Blogging Tory "Neo," rather than show the slightest bit of skepticism about this brand new talking point, is all over it like, well, "Neo" on dead minorities:

"marie says... It was the Kenyan security at the airport who caught this. It was not just the passport photo."
as alice would say... curiouser & curiouser.
Or as we here at CC HQ would say, retardeder and retardeder.
Tune in next week when "marie" accuses Suaad Hagi Mohamud of being a cocaine mule, and "Neo" is all, like, "I knew it!"
BONUS TRACK: Oh, dear ... poor Neo, hopelessly ignorant yet again:
and you actually think the kenyan authorities, who arrested, processed and detained this woman were all conspiring against her?
Perhaps someone should explain to "Neo" how it was the Canadian authorities in Kenya that decided that Mohamud was an imposter, voided her passport, and handed her over to the Kenyans for prosecution. On the other hand, that might involve Neo eventually writing something that was correct, and we don't want to push him into unfamiliar territory. It might frighten him.
WHAT THE HELL? Dr. Dawg in the comments, quoting DFAIT:
Ms. Mohamud was initially stopped by Kenyan officials because her photos did not match. When Ms. Mohamud originally arrive [sic] at the airport a photo was taken of her by Kenyan immigration officials and when she arrived at the airport to depart the person who presented Ms. Mohamud passport did not match either the passport photo or the airports entry photo.
I have to ask, even if Mohamud no longer resembled her 4-year-old passport photo, how could she possibly not resemble the airport entry pic taken only two weeks earlier? Oh, wait, I remember -- the Canadian Dumbfuck-o-sphere is claiming that she handed off her passport to, what, a sister? But if you believe that, you have to believe that, after the "imposter" was denied boarding, everyone conveniently turned their backs long enough to allow Mohamud to slip back in unnoticed.
Is that the talking point? Seriously, is that the fairy tale the Dumbfuck-o-sphere is pushing now?
