FR exclusive: PERSON OF INTEREST removed from flight from LAX Feb 19
A personal friend | 02/20/2010 | Racebannon

Posted on 02/20/2010 9:26:08 AM PST by RaceBannon

It's going on all the time

I have a friend who is in the airline business who told me of a questionable incident on a recent flight of his. For his security, the details have to remain non-disclosed.

But it is going on all the time.

message is below

There isn’t much to it but take it. My experience simply begs a question that’s being ignored as to how many times daily this type of incident is occurring.

Subject: Personal experience on another flight today.

FYI:

I was on United Flight #0966 today. The flight departed on schedule from Los Angeles (LAX) at 7:50AM for a 3:35PM arrival at Dulles International. I wasn’t in the best of moods after being subjected to extra screening “care” by an ambitious TSA agent that just wanted to reach out and touch me (full-body pat down). My wife received the same treatment.

We landed ahead of schedule but were informed, by the cockpit, to stay seated due to several individuals coming aboard. Shortly thereafter, two uniformed law enforcement agents came down the right-hand aisle of our wide-bodied jet to secure possession of a young bearded man who appeared to be of Middle-Eastern descent – big F’ing surprise, right. He was quickly removed, with his carry-on bag, from the plane.

The flight attendant that I questioned would only acknowledge that there was a security issue with this passenger. A few moments later, I noticed that a half dozen plainclothes officers gathered at the gate to review what appeared to be passenger lists, etc. They were soon joined by a ground crew member.

Best,

J

They must be upping it, it’s been awhile since they took down a US plane. Maybe they’re promising the next one 100 virgins.

Well, obviously pre check-in screening didn’t bother to check the list of names on the watch list.

What is disconcerting is that this 'intervention' occurred after plane landed. . .and not before it took off!

Absolutely.

I wish I could reveal what the other friend said, but it isn’t good.

Lets just say, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

And all the usual suspects have the same ethnic appearance.

None of these incidents get published, and if it’s a flagrant violation, it becomes an “not terrorist related, disgruntled person acting on his own, ethnicity not mentioned” kind of thing. They are not as concerned with the public as with the airline industry staying profitable...lobbyists at work?

We drive everywhere since Pan Am 800 (1996) and 9/11 (2001). That’s why our cars have so many miles on them. Our dog generally goes with us, and he’s been coast to coast several times over the last 8 years (that’s how long we’ve had him.)

*shrug* If he had blown it up in mid flight, that would have been the end of the trip as well.

What's the difference? </TSA>

I carry a package of bacon bits.

One TSA guy looked at them and blandly asked “Making a salad?”

I said “Naahhhh, it’s for terrorists.”

His buddy wanted to know what bacon had to do with terrorism...

TWA 800. And it is very troubling. Center fuel tank, my eye. That plane was brought down by a missile.

I’m jes’ thinkin’... what if this was like the panty bomber situation, where before the fellow boarded your plane, he came in to the secure area of your airport via one or more legs on which a subsequent security problem was discovered, perhaps discovered outside the USA. Meaning that he was assumed to have been screened (for no-fly status, proper passport and visa, etc.) when he really hadn’t been, or something like that.

I like your idea. Good for you! But next thing you know CAIR will have bacon bits banned from flights cause it would be considered a terrorist act against Muzzies.

Great they apparently took the potential trouble maker off the plane after it landed.

A couple of years ago my wife and were flying back from Jacksonville, FLA with a layover in Vegas.

This was a few days after the uproar re no liquids on flights.

TSA was all over everyone. I intervened, when they over reacted with a WWII combat fighter pilot that was being miss handled.

Later, when we were on the plane before the take off and asked two young women to leave. The women were a little drunk, loud and protesting the new restrictions.

What we didn’t realize was the rear door was opened by the crew, 4 security people came aboard and escorted two probable MEs off the plane and back out the rear door. Those of us in the front of the plane didn’t know that happened, and most in the back didn’t see the young women being escorted. We found out what happened later at the luggage carousel.

Nothing that I know of was published about the escorting off the probable MEs and the young women in front.

Cavity search!

I recall reading about an assassination attempt where the hit man had a PETN suppository up where the sun don't shine. No airplane was involved.

Was it TWA? It’s so long ago now that I’ve forgotten. We had tickets to fly to CA 2 days after that plane went down in New York Harbor, and we decided to drive to CA on the spur of the moment. We called Northwest Airlines and they said that they fully understood and said that we could change our tickets without any penalty. Re-used them about 8 months later. I’ve flown once since then — to Ireland — can’t drive there. The dates of our trip were 9-8-2001 with a return on 9-15-2001. Guess what happened while we were in Ireland?

I don’t think Obama cares a hoot about the arilines staying profitable.

I’m firmly convinced Obama really wants America to get hit again .. BECAUSE THAT WOULD GIVE HIM THE “OPPORTUNITY” TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW - STOP THE ELECTIONS, AND IMPOSE WHO KNOWS WHAT UPON AMERICA.

Remember what Rahm said, “Never let a good opportunity go to waste”.

Maybe practical, kinda funny, but saying stuff like that at a TSA inspection can escalate to a situation beyond your control, for sure ruining at least your day.

I had a long post here which went over the problems with thinking it was a terrorist missile, but it has departed into an FR memory hole. (I do have the text someplace, but not on the computer I am using now.) Bottom line is that JFK planes bound for Europe are normally at 19,000 feet well west of where TWA800 was stricken. NO ONE who posits a terrorist missile thinks they would have anything capable to that altitude. It is true that a combination of circumstances kept TWA800 to 13,100 at that point but no terrorist would be lying in wait at a place where his missiles would normally not have the range to reach his target.

I was getting ready to board a flight out of Philadelphia the other day and saw something I had never seen before.

The preboarding was taking place when a group of four TSA officials wheeled a metal cart through the crowd and set up an additional security checkpoint right outside the gate. They pulled individuals randomly out of line and started searching their carry on bags.

The first person they pulled out of line was a middle aged, business woman. Come to think of it she kind of looked like Janet Napolitano. Heh.

Has anyone else ever seen this type of additional security scrutiny before?

"Lets just say, it’s going to get worse before it gets better." When more airliners start falling out of the sky for no good reason the Feds will do their best to cover it up, but at some point they won't be able to and something will have to be done about the problem. More than likely the American public will suffer for it like we are doing now.
