Planning To Kill You
WASHINGTON - Airport security officers around the nation have been alerted by federal officials to look out for terrorists practicing to carry explosive components onto aircraft, based on four curious seizures at airports since last September.So think what that means.
The seizures at airports in San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston and Baltimore included "wires, switches, pipes or tubes, cell phone components and dense clay-like substances," including block cheese, the bulletin said. "The unusual nature and increase in number of these improvised items raise concern."
The bulletin said the a joint FBI-Homeland Security Department assessment found that terrorists have conducted probes, dry runs and dress rehearsals in advance of previous attacks.
The bulletin said the passengers carrying the suspicious items seized since September included men and women and that initial investigation had not linked them with criminal or terrorist organizations. But it added that most of their explanations for carrying the items were suspicious and some were still under investigation.
The four seizures were described this way:
• San Diego, July 7. A U.S. person — either a citizen or a foreigner legally here — checked baggage containing two ice packs covered in duct tape. The ice packs had clay inside them rather than the normal blue gel.
• Milwaukee, June 4. A U.S. person's carryon baggage contained wire coil wrapped around a possible initiator, an electrical switch, batteries, three tubes and two blocks of cheese. The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives.
• Houston, Nov. 8, 2006. A U.S. person's checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a 9-volt battery, wires, a block of brown clay-like minerals and pipes.
• Baltimore, Sept. 16, 2006. A couple's checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a block of processed cheese taped to another plastic bag holding a cellular phone charger.
These are just the ones we know about.
Somewhere, somebody is tabulating all the different ways they're trying to get bombs on planes, to find out which ones aren't found.
Somewhere, somebody is directing these people in trying different methods of concealment.
Carefully and patiently working out how to destroy our way of life and kill thousands of innocent people.
We can bet these people are probably muslims. Who else?
And when 20 airliners all blow up in the sky at the same time one day, perhaps anytime now, some will still be worried about the inconveniences of "flying while muslim" rather than saving your life.
That's the whole point of the flying imams who want to sue anyone who raises suspicion -- it's to make these attacks easier. That makes those imams saboteurs by the way and they should be executed.
Instead, they get a news conference.
And what are Democrats thinking in killing the John Doe amendment? They'd rather you die than offend a muslim.
So when it happens, will we still worry more about offending muslims?
Or since we can't stop further bombings and don't know who among them is doing it, will we detain and/or deport every last one of them?
Answer that again after it's your child who gets murdered.
Or indeed, when it's yours you just hope gets to grow up with the freedom to fly safely.
