Kerry knew about security hole at Logan airport & did NOTHING

KERRY KNEW ABOUT 9/11 BOSTON HIJACKING PLAN YET DID NOTHING

Speaking of Kerry’s apathy concerning the war on terror, according to Washington investigative reporter Paul Sperry, Kerry often boasts how he “sounded the alarm on terrorism years before 9/ 11,” referring to his 1997 book, The New War.

But Kerry didn’t blast it when it really counted, Sperry wrote – four months before the hijackings, when he was hand-delivered evidence of serious security breaches at Logan International Airport, with specific warnings that terrorists could exploit them:

"Former FAA security officials say the Massachusetts senator had the power to prevent at least the Boston hijackings and save the World Trade Center and thousands of lives, yet he failed to take effective action after they gave him a prophetic warning that his state’s main airport was vulnerable to multiple hijackings,” Sperry wrote in the March 15 edition of the New York Post. Again, as Kerry continues to accuse Bush of “misleading America” into the war in Iraq, the Kerry media cabal has flatly refused to expose Kerry’s treasonous dereliction of duty in responding to a tip that could have prevented the hijackings at Logan International Airport. Much like Clinton’s fear of racial profiling, Kerry did nothing as well.

Saying "KERRY KNEW ABOUT 9/11 BOSTON HIJACKING PLAN" and failing "to take effective action after they gave him a prophetic warning that his state's main airport was vulnerable to multiple hijackings" are two entirely different things.

Might he have done something about Logan? Sure.

However knowing about security breaches and "that terrorists COULD (emphasis mine) exploit them" does not mean he knew they WOULD or WHEN.

Don't do yourself a disservice, make sure you have the facts properly represented.
