SNIPPET: "According to police, three baggage handlers were loading luggage on to a flight bound for Bermuda around 10:56 a.m. when two of the handlers noticed a third was not wearing an identification badge.
When questioned about it, the third man took off and has yet to be found by police."
SNIPPET: "Investigating agencies include the Philadelphia Police, the F.B.I. and Homeland Security."

Since it’s Philly, I’m guessing it’s one of those dastardly Mennonites.
What is up with Philly?
“Plane out of Philadelphia grounded due to security problem”

PHILADELPHIA, P.A. (October 7, 2010) —
SNIPPET: “Reports are saying someone was helping to load the plane with cargo did not have proper identification.
More than 100 passangers were taken off the flight, and authorities had the airplane towed to a remote location at the airport to sweep the plane for any suspicious cargo.
Philadelphia police said the person helping to load the plane was dressed in airline uniform, though the person’s whereabouts were unclear, and it was unclear whether they were loading cargo or passangers.”
Just about anyone working at Denver airport is a Somali.

SNIPPET: “The incident began sometime after 10 a.m. as baggage was being loaded onto US Airways Flight 1070 departing for Bermuda.
Sources told Fox 29 News that two US Airways baggage handlers noticed a third man apparently dressed in an airline uniform was helping to load the plane for its flight. When the employees asked the man for identification, the man ran off, drove away and has not been located.”
What did the third guy look like? Did he say anything? If so, did he have a foreign accent?
Unknown (from online reports) at this time.
For some reason, the incident has the feel of a Seinfeld episode, with some convoluted reason Kramer winds up loading the plane until he is discovered and runs away.
The last time I flew out of Newark, the guy who check my bags and ID at the curbsite check-in had a Mohammed name tag.

I guess you haven’t flown through Detroit? Are you in for a surprise.
No person is "illegal".
He's just an undocumented baggage handler.
"We don't need no stinkin' badges!"
"The system worked!"
"We can absorb a terrorist attack."
"Nothing to see here. Move along!"
Was it Cigar Guy!?!
As long as that baggage handler wasn’t Amish, I think we’re ok.
What kind of “strange baggage” was he handling?................
OK, I’m guessing the mystery baggage guy is either:
1. Secret Agent Dan Maes (looking for UN bicycles), or
2. James O’Keefe (looking for ACORN hooker underwear).
Most likely a low life thief looking for an opportunity to grab a few things from luggage.
Lancaster is so close by - the first thing I thought was Amish
It was a member of the Cincinnati Reds trying desperately to find where their offense went, since they obviously left it on the plane when they got into Philly.
