Who is Safe from Terrorism?
On the 18th of this month you may have seen in the media a small article about how a flight was delayed because one man would not stop talking on his cell phone.
This incident should not have been a small article: it should have been plastered all over the media.
These are the events of that day according to a passenger who was on the plane.
Air Tran Flight 297, Atlanta to Houston, 17th February 2012.
11 Arab men dressed in Muslim attire boarded the plane. Two sat in the First Class section, whilst the rest sat along the length of the coach class.
Whilst the stewardesses were giving their safety speech, one of the Arab men in the First Class started talking loudly, in Arabic to one of the Arabs in coach, who was answering back in the same manner.
Two stewardesses went to the man in their compartments to ask them to stop using their cells. The men ignored them. As this was happening, two of the other Arabs, a row apart, started watching a porn movie that they had made the previous evening on their camcorder. They were discussing the movie in loud voices. A third stewardess went to them to ask them to turn off their camcorder. Other than telling her “shut up infidel dog” they ignored her. All eleven of the Arabs started talking and moving around the aircraft.
If Passengers Give Trouble
The pilot, realizing that there was a problem in the passenger section, returned the aircraft to the terminal.
TSA agents and police entered the aircraft and escorted all the Arabs off of the plane.
After a short delay, the agents returned with all the Arabs. A startled stewardess asked the agents what was going on. They replied that the Arabs and their luggage had been searched and as nothing had been found, they were clear to continue their flight.
The stewardess said that she could not fly with these men. The rest of the crew agreed and they all left the plane. Shortly afterwards the TSA brought a new crew on board.
At this point the rest of the passengers started to object, saying that they would not fly with the Arabs either. Enough of these passengers refused to stay on the flight that the flight had to be cancelled.
Now I am only guessing but I do not think that these Arabs were either Al Qaida or Taliban, otherwise they would have been arrested. Terrorism though is not always about killing, it is sometimes about disrupting the peaceful everyday activities. So this may not have been a “dry run” for a later act of terror, merely a mission complete.
These Arabs were more likely though, Saudi friends of the wealthy elite that secretly control the US government and the media. Wait a moment though, weren’t 16 of the 19, 9/11 terrorists Saudis?
Do not worry though, as long as YOU don’t carry your tin of baby formula on the plane and remember to take off YOUR shoes in the airport, you’ll be safe.
It is good though, to see how the monies from taxes and from the air ticket surcharges are being spent.
Why though was none of this in the US media?
- Can Inland Security Do This?
Often incidents occur that are stopped from being reported by different government agencies. Is this an abuse of the agencies power?
- Is the War, on Terrorists or Terror?
We are told that we are winning the war on terror. Is this true? What will define success and is it possible to have two winners?
- Nationality of Terrorism
Why is it that Israel are so quick to apportion blame for the attempted diplomatic killings? Why are the US in support? Is there a war on terror or just excuse?
