Dry run at Detroit airport? “Arabic man” ignores instructions from security guards, part of airport shut down
They thought maybe he didn’t understand English, but he did. So what was he doing? “Security scare closes airport concourse,” from UPI, February 8:

Naaaahhhh.

At the very least, it would make this a "damp" run

Authorities activated the breach alarm, causing metal gates to snap down, isolating the section around Concourse A.

Information gleaned. Jihad marches on.

Thanks for the post/link, Race.

Half the TSA, baggage, and general airport personnel are probably Arab anyway. That should be a comforting thought.

I have to fly in April and while I’m looking forward to the trip, I am dreading the airport drama, the bare feet, the little shampoo bottles etc.

My worry is that while Detroit seems to be the center of concern, something sinister is being planned for elsewhere in the US.

"It worked really well. This guy had no place to go," said Michael Conway, airport spokesman.

A laden terrorist would have ignited a bomb inside the secure area of the airport.

I totally agree shot the damn Muslim. Mollycoodling terrorists is not working. Give them the same treatment they would receive in their home country - cut off the hands, behead them. Did they give Pearl a fair trail. Treat O the same way. The largest Muslim Population in Dearborn MI. A terrorist attack does it signal Muslims to rise up and attack their neighbors. Something is a brewing. Life in a city is not good.

I just flew back from London. as the flight near New York City a disheveled middle eastern looking man started pacing up and down the aisle. He did that all the way to Atlanta. Could be his legs were tired or maybe he was just messing with us. But my sense is that people are watching this crap and on the ready.

When you think about it, these so called “dry runs” are not a dry run but a successful act of terrorism. Operations are disrupted, people are scared by the actions and there is serious ecconomic disruption and out right loss. A so called dry run is an attack.

I don't think these are dry runs. I think they are attempts to invoke excessive reactions by law enforcement or airline employees, and then later sue for discrimination.

I say that, based on the only two Arabic people I've had close dealings with in my professional career -- both of whom have a history of frivolous lawsuits.

Detroit might constitute a 'decoy' -- keep everyone's attention & energy & resources on Detroit, as a camoflage for a different location altogether where their next terror attack is really planned.

Detroit probably isn't the target --- however, IF it is, then the Islamists have said that any muslims who die in an attack on America will go immediately to Paradise as Martyrs.

It would be interesting to know the general movements of the Islamic population groups in the USA, as evidentally they often encourage Muslims to move away to safe areas.....

‘Detroit might constitute a ‘decoy’ — keep everyone’s attention & energy & resources ‘

These Dry Runs at any airports are smokescreens.

The next attacks will be:

1) Schools
2) Malls
3) Large sporting events
4) Infrastructure( think RR bridges over the Mississippi)
5) Large public gathers and then let the media blame the ‘right wing’ fringe further dividing this nation

I don't think that any of these alleged "Dry Runs" are successful terror attacks.

NO way.

Sure, there's chatter on a bunch of online forums, and there's a few blogs which delve into them -- but this constitutes an infintesimal tiny percentage of one percent of the entire American population.

It may be different for you, but in my offline world, there is absolutely no one who follows anything about terrorism and they find me extremely odd if they happen to ever realize that I'm fairly current on much of it, and where I'm not current, I can locate the info I need online pretty fast.

Indeed, the people I run into are not scared about terrorism, although several have commented that it's too depressing to think about, so they studiously ignore anything & everything about it.

Prepared?

Huh? Prepare for what?

So what if the DHS and Red Cross have repeatedly stated to prepare for a minimum of 3 days -- THREE LOUSY DAYS, but no --- preparing means that you're a weird survivalist paranoid kook.

AND... there's also a huge percentage of the BHO supporters who sincerely believe that the terrorists are merely overgrown juvenille delinquents who DESERVE to be angry at the USA.

Those Americans aren't scared of the terrorists, either.

I'm also not scared, I've been DE-sensitized, it's difficult to remember feeling any fear & terror about future terror attacks.

I'm positive that massive terror attacks will occur in this country, to me that's simply a hard cold FACT, not anything to fret over, there's nothing I can do with the small exception of trying to remain vigilent of my surroundings when in crowded environments.

Security guards at first thought the man didn't understand English and therefore didn't understand their questions, but when he was taken into custody, he began to speak in English, Conway said.

I had a guy change lanes directly into me (he honked at me as he was doing it). He played like he spoke no English, until the polic ticketed him. Then, he was like Johnny Cochran.

I just flew back from London. as the flight near New York City a disheveled middle eastern looking man started pacing up and down the aisle. He did that all the way to Atlanta.

I had the same thing happen to me on a trip back from Cozumel to Dallas. A man from Lebanon was sitting right next to me and my girlfriend. He was in the aisle seat. Soon after take off he began pacing the aisles, then got back in his seat and placed his head between his legs like he was praying. Then got back up and started looking out the emergency exit doors, just freaking everybody out.

I told the s.o.b. he needed to sit down because he was making EVERYBODY on the plane nervous. He made some excuse about being afraid to fly over the ocean and such. He was also asking questions like "are we over Texas yet? or "are we over the U.S. yet?" just scaring the crap out of us.

Finally, once we landed and came to a stop, he literally bolted as fast as he could to get to the front of the plane, pushing people aside, etc.

Customs grabbed his sorry ass and detained him. I called the the next day and the airline told me he was still in custody but would not release any more info.

This was all 2 months after 9/11. Scariest flight I ever took.

YEP.

And even though they MIGHT be doing this intentionally, I've read over the past few years, starting a little while after THE FLYING IMAMS, that plenty of people think that it is FUNNY to scare Americans in airports, so they intentionally try to do so -- of course, meantime, some of those who have that strange sense of humor have become very rich with discrimination lawsuits which may have encouraged many others.

I've read so many books and articles about terrorism, that I am DE-sensitized to feeling FEAR, of any type, much less outright TERROR.

Terrorists and terror attacks are simply a FACT of life.

Nah, the reason that stuff hasn't happened yet is NOT because of what BRENNAN says is this administration's success in combating terrorism, but actually due to the wish of al-Qaeda to outdo 911 -- AND that takes years in an environment of heightened security.

So I believe that there will be MULTIPLE simultaneous terror attacks occurring in both rural & urban areas of America --- attacking a whole variety of targets like your list suggests, but in MANY locations and all of them within days of oneanother.

However, I don't believe that even that will successfully 'awaken' the public. They don't care.

And with the mouthpiece of this administration Brennan talking about how America's justice system can deal with terrorists just FINE, thank you --- it would take multiple dirty bombs and harbor nukes to get the military involved in any terrorist attacks on the homeland.
