Women at Love Field 'acting suspiciously'
Dallas police and federal terrorism officials are investigating two women, both dressed in camouflage pants under their traditional Muslim robes and scarves, who were seen conducting what appeared to be surveillance and acting suspiciously at Dallas Love Field.
One of the women, Kimberly "Asma" Al-Homsi, 42, of Arlington, who is on probation for a 2005 Garland road rage incident involving a fake grenade, is said to have long-range assault rifle and explosives training, according to a Dallas police intelligence bulletin issued March 5.
"I'm a trained sniper and proud of it," Ms. Al-Homsi said in an interview Thursday after first refusing to comment on whether she has any terrorism ties. She then said no.
Police officials said they have no direct evidence the women have ties to terrorism.
On the afternoon of Feb. 25, Ms. Al-Homsi and a friend who could not be reached for comment, Aisha Abdul-Rahman Hamad, 50, of Irving, were spotted at Love Field wearing Muslim robes and camouflage pants and "acting suspiciously," the bulletin states. The surveillance video shows one of the women walking back and forth, apparently pacing off distances.
When confronted, the women told officials they were looking for the Frontiers of Flight museum. They left in a red Honda. Descriptions of the incident and the car were circulated at the airport.
Two days later, the museum executive director was leaving for the evening when he noticed the Honda parked facing the runway. A woman, later identified as Ms. Al-Homsi, was sitting on the hood, looking through binoculars at the airplanes. He told the women the museum was closing, and they left.
Police issued one of them a citation for having no front license plate and failing to change her address on a driver's license.

"Asma" Al-Homsi???? - Lock em up!
Muslim terrorists don't kill people, long-range assault rifles and explosives kill people.
the picture is a good example why middle eastern men aren’t the only people to watch
Yikes! Throw a burkha on that!
Sounds like another ‘flying imam’ incident. Probe defenses and then scream racism when caught.
She obviously suffers from Von Hippel-Lindau disease.
Anyone that ugly should be hung like a man.
From WFFA-FOX in Dallas:
Richardson police may upgrade charges against a driver accused of road rage.
Kimberly Al-Homsi allegedly threatened a man with a hand grenade yesterday.
She then led police on a chase from North Dallas to Garland. It turns out that the grenade was not live, but she could be charged with making a terror threat.
Police say the hand grenade wasn’t the only alarming object police said they found in Al-Homsi’s car. They also confiscated additional ammunition that could have been used to create an explosive.
“As officers approached the car...they saw what appeared to be a couple of hand grenades inside the car,” said Sgt. Kevin Perlich, Richardson Police Department.
Officers backed off when they discovered the explosive and called the Garland bomb squad, who pulled out three hand grenades.
Police checked the grenades and said they were real but did not have explosive material in them so they were not actively explosive, but they did find other ammunition inside the car.
“It is very serious,” said Officer Joe Harn, Garland Police Department.
Police said the incident started as road rage between Kimberly Al Homsi, 41, and a male driver.
“She pulls out what appears to be a hand grenade, pulls the pin and starts making threatening motions like she is going to throw it at him,” Harn said.
The male driver called Richardson police and they found Al-Homsi coming out of the parking lot of the Brighter Horizon’s Academy in Garland where she had just picked up her teenage daughter. Police investigated to see if Al-Homsi made any threats while at the school.
“From what we could tell right now, there were no other threats made to anyone else other than the motorist which she had the altercation with,” Perlich said. “So, no sign she was a harm or threat to anybody.”
Police said they have not discovered why she had the items in her car
Who is this "Brighter Horizon" that owns an Academy?
Maybe she is........
I just spit coffee all over my screen, keyboard, and half of my desk!
You meet me to it. If no burkha available, her own tee-shirt would do. NOT
This is a joke... right?
