Kurt and Lori Haskell stated that they saw Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab board the flight from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport without a passport, after the intervention of a wealthy looking Indian man in his 50s. In response, Dutch authorities claimed that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab did have a passport, in contrast to other witnesses.[4][5]

The security at Schipol was alleged to have been the responsibility of ICTS International‎.[6][7]

Only the Indian man spoke and what the Indian man said was this man needs to board the plane and he doesn't have a passport. And the ticket agent then responded, well, you need a passport to board the plane. And the Indian man said, well, he's from Sudan and we do this all the time.”
