Girl sends terroristic tweet to AA, gets unwanted response
WFAA Channel 8 ^ | 4/14/2014 | wfaa,com

Posted on 04/14/2014 10:00:52 AM PDT by freedumb2003

A Twitter user thought to be a teenage girl has received unwanted notoriety after she sent a terrorism-themed message to American Airlines. (snip)

The girl – who identified herself as a 14-year-old named Sarah in her now-suspended Twitter account – sent this tweet to American Airlines' @americanair account Sunday morning.

"hello my name's Ibrahim and I'm from Afghanistan. I'm part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I'm gonna do something really big bye."

American responded, saying: "Sarah, we take these threats very seriously. Your IP address and details will be forwarded to security and the FBI."

(snip)

According to a tweet sent out by Rotterdam police in the Netherlands, the girl has been arrested.

Stupid is as stupid does. If it wasn't so important it would be damn funny and a great example of "actions have consequences."

she is an idiot but she did not actually threaten to do anything except something big. Not really enough to be a real threat

Suppose the something big is the adoption of a puppy? Won't American Airlines be in for it THEN?

Pretty nonspecific to be called a 'threat'.

Say “I have something big planned for this flight” right before boarding and see what happens.

“Something Big” is what the terrorists were saying before 9/11. It is tantamount to saying “I will be setting a bomb.”

It might not be specific but it sure as hell is a threat.

Well hell, I plan something big for tonight. I guess that’s a threat now too? It really means I plan a nice big meal, but... no, it’s a threat now.

When did we start making stuff up outright?

“I will wake up tomorrow on time to get to work” must mean “I have a thermonuclear device that I will place on the Eiffel Tower and detonate”, under these new rules of language.

When did the entire f***ing world lose it’s damned mind?

Don’t get mad at me. It is the post-9/11 reality.

Like I said, say that while boarding. You will miss your flight and might never be allowed to travel on that airline again. Even if the “something big” was to propose on the flight.

Just like you can’t say “That movie? What a bomb!” on a plane.

It is a reality. Just like worm-eaters who say they won’t fly b/c they don’t like the idea of the TSA. Get used to reality.

Oh c'mon, you're smarter than that.

When you say you're from Afghanistan and part of Al Qaeda (correct spelling) followed up by "something big" the implication of that something being a terrorist attack is hardly a stretch.

Chick was at home, not boarding, and she issued no actual threat. This 'case' will be dismissed but the kids life will be upside down for a while anyways.

Posting to an airline is the same as boarding. That is reality.

I agree she won’t see charges but she might not be able to fly on any airline for a long time (if ever).

Hard to say what the fallout will be but it won’t be good for her.

Except for REALITY in this case ended up the same as if someone was boarding.

Go ahead and prove your point. Post exactly what she did on UAL or BA or any airline.

Then tell me how this is a radical distortion of reality when they let you out on bail between your arraignment and imprisonment.

That is because the planet has gone quite insane, and reality is whatever authorities declare it is at that moment.

Except for REALITY in this case ended up the same as if someone was boarding.

The best predictor for future behavior is recent past behavior. That the authorities have reacted in an insane fashion recently, tells me they would react the same with me in that future.

So, she's not boarding a plane. Not scheduled to board a plane. Makes no specific threat whatsoever. ARRESTED.

Crazy.

Someone says they are al quaida and have something big planned for an airline?

Reality says lock him/her up.

As I said, “something big” was EXACTLY the terms used by the terrorists prior to 9/11.

But, go ahead and take the test I proposed. Test your libertarianism to post-9/11 reality.

Wrong, she directly implied a threat as I demonstrated in my post above. Personally, I hope the little snot-nosed brat gets some form of punishment. I bet her parents could use a dose too based on how well their little darling is turning out.

You don't know that, in fact the airline couldn't have known it from a "tweet" from an unknown source claiming to be in Afghanistan and a member of the Taliban.

The airline had no choice but to take the threat seriously and turn over the information they had to the authorities as I'd hope they would if you or I were boarding that plane.

You claim she didn't make a threat: I claim she did. Using "Afghanistan", "member of Al Qaeda" and "something big is about to happen" is absolutely a threat that MUST be taken seriously. I don't care if it's a "tweet", something that pops up on our computer screen, or a note via carrier pigeon. The three elements of the threat I just stated above have to be taken seriously in a responsible society.

I just don't understand how you don't see that.

“The judge will probably mandate AA meetings.”

Some fools think “anonymous” means they can say anything, with impunity.

Fact is sometimes crimes are revealed in their unburdening themselves of past wrongs, and the police get notified and they get arrested.

Be careful what you say in AA meetings.
