Passenger captures dramatic video of SWAT team storming Toronto plane
CNN ^ | June 26, 2014 | Shelby Lin Erdman

Posted on 07/26/2014 4:16:16 AM PDT by Innovative

The airline said the Panama-bound plane was forced to return to Toronto Friday morning about 45 minutes into the flight after a passenger, identified by authorities as Ali Shahi, made a "direct threat against the aircraft."

Witnesses told CNN affiliate CTV that Shahi said he wanted to bomb Canada.

Short Video. Waaaaaayyyyy more of that d!ck David Gregory than I’d ever care to see.

I guess we’ll be hearing now how the DHS, FBI, TSA et al stopped another terrorist threat, huh?

A bunch of uncultured Canuck pigs storm a plane, imitating their Yank brethren. BFD.

A better plan would have been to dump Mr Shahi on West Virginia.

I don’t understand why you are making fun of the elite SWAT team. They just knew there is a threat on the plane, didn’t know who — what would you have them do, ask politely, “Could the terrorist please raise his hand”?

To make fun of this, especially after 9-11, is pathetic.

The terrorist was subdued over West Virginia. The situation was under control of a competent flight crew. These idiots had the time it takes to fly from West Virginia back to Canada to get their act together. Instead, they opted for fascist theater, doubtless to prove they have same amount of testosterone as their big brother pigs south of the border.

To make fun of this, especially after 9-11, is pathetic.

Screw 9-11. To the extent we change our ways as a result of 9-11, the wogs have won!

Better to NOT change our behavior and have many more terrorists attack on the same scale or larger than 9-11?!

Because a SWAT team is a dynamic entry team and represents significant danger to everyone on the plane who is NOT making threats.

Everyone on the plane is already contained so they sure aren’t going to bomb Canada from there.

9/11 is not justification for everything some thug on steroids wants to do with his taxpayer funded toys.

Excuse me. But the ‘elites’ in this country have overused that “after 9/11” excuse to excess, IMO.

They have used the banner of terrorism to create a whole agency dedicated to egregiously arming itself to the point of a private standing civilian army for Obama. Billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition, thousands and thousands of “personal defense weapons” (also known as M-4s). The BLM, USPS, Agriculture Department, IRS and so, so many other agencies all have the SWAT team equivalent. For what?

We have nearly every agency, city and town in this country now with a SWAT team. Armored vehicles, mobile command centers, automatic weapons, body armor - all the gear you’d need to storm Fallujah. For what? To raid some guy’s house in the middle of the night, shoot his dog, shoot him, his kids (drop a flash bang in the crib like here in Georgia) and then say “we followed procedure” when it turns out they had the wrong house?

I was answering a question that someone else had about what they said. You can take it how you will - I don’t care. But please don’t give me that 9/11 stuff. We’ve gone way, way beyond that now. It’s the citizens they’re after now.

The only change in behavior we need to prevent another 9/11 is to not sit back and trust our govt. Thats already happening, other passengers will take care of business.

Whats also happening is our govt is monitoring Americans far more than they are monitoring our enemies. Because we represent a threat to THEIR personal power.

The terrorist could still have blown up the plane with the passengers — or have you forgotten the “underware bomber”?

I read recently that the terrorists perfected that explosive material.

You mean before they actually got through their security and they caught them at the scanners type of “caught”?

Off hand, I’d say ZERO. I know they claim stopping a lot of them, but most of the higher profile ones were where the particular terrorist action failed (shoe bomber, underwear bomber, and the like.)

If he had had that capability, he would already have used it to dump the airplane in flames on whatever is below the approach to Toronto. The SWAT team would have been useless.

I never said the Canadian thing wasn’t legitimate at all. In fact, as an action it was successful. I only remarked about their orders.

Listen very carefully to the video where Gregory isn’t playing reporter......”hands up, heads down” repeated rapidly. In some instances it slurred to “hands-up-heads-down” now extrapolate a little “....-up-heads-down-hands...” Just saying.

Other than every one of the SWATters saying it all together and some sequentially, how clear is that? Especially when you have an M-4 pointed at you?

The Canadians actually did a pretty good job given the circumstances. Had this been in the US, I fear the consequences would have been much worse.

You’re right, none. They haven’t caught a single ‘terrorist’. They’ve groped a lot of old ladies and little children, ruined lives of good people, and cost a heck of a lot of money.

This and your post #18 sums it up pretty damn nicely.

In ObaMao's America, every citizen is a potential terrorist and every terrorist is a potential citizen. The burden of proof is on the citizen to prove otherwise.

If I was on a flight headed anywhere & a threat was made, I would be praying for SWAT (or any other agency) to come through the door with as much fire power as they could carry. I would not give a flyin’ you-know-what how many times I heard “Hands up, heads down!”

The entire exchange between the pseudo-concerned Anderson Cooper and the soccer mom, blonde reporter exemplified perfectly the cynical, leftist media angle on anything “terrorist” and involving Muslims. In their tone and words both “reporters”, who basically knew nothing, implied skepticism regarding the threat the man presented.

It's looking more and more like 9/11 was a setup nudged by covert agents. A spectacular attack to tear up the Constitution “for the greater good”.

Just like every terrorist attack “thwarted” since 9/11 was a setup by undercover feds spoon feeding ideas and technology to some idiot Islamists.

And after trillions of dollars and a decade of war we got zero proof that we got the man supposedly responsible for 9/11. Islamic burial at sea my f’n ass.

I’m not sure 9/11 was a planned event of collusion, ignorance, incompetence or deceit on the part of our government.

I tend to think that Clinton was in large part responsible, and I think that Jaime Gorelick, as the number two in the Justice Department who set up the wall between CIA and FBI was equally responsible in essence. She later presided as a CEO in Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac and made millions as well as a principal contributor to the 9/11 after action panel. Egregious duplicity there.

Finally, as for Osama, they’ll have to show me detail pictures of his bullet ridden body AND proof they dumped HIS body in the ocean. Very fishy story there. Unbelievable in fact.

Based on government actions since 9/11, I’m almost certain they were involved and it was not ignorance.

Why not carry a couple of wooden pencils on the plane with you. When the opportunity presents itself, shove one through the guys kidney and the other one into his neck. Give him a taste of your threat to his life for disturbing your flight.
