    BOSTON —Medical crews in hazmat suits have responded to an arriving plane at the international terminal at Logan Airport. A source told NewsCenter 5 that six passengers on board the flight had become sick. The plane, an Emirates airliner that had arrived from Dubai, was surrounded by ambulances and emergency responders in white and yellow suits. Massport, which runs the airport, did not respond to several phone messages on the nature of the incident. However, international airports around the country are on alert for Ebola, though there was no indication that was related to the emergency response. Read more:
  • Logan Airport is Too Important to be Run by the State

    THE STATE ETHICS Commission came up with three solutions to state Senator Dan Wolf's conflict-of-interest problem. Allow me to suggest a fourth. Wolf is the pilot and entrepreneur who founded Cape Air in 1989 and over the next two decades built it into one of the country's most successful regional airlines. He was elected to the Massachusetts Senate in 2010, and now hopes to run for governor. But the Ethics Commission ruled last month that Wolf was in violation of state law, which bars elected officials from having a business relationship with any state agency. Since Wolf still owns...

    Sources told FOX 25 there was an American Airlines flight that was headed to Chicago. There were two men on that plane – not sitting next to each other – and speaking Arabic. There were some concerned marathoners on the flight so the plane was brought back to the gate and the two men were escorted off the plane.

    Passengers flying through Boston’s Logan International Airport will notice the security screeners are chattier than usual, but it’s not an improved customer service policy. On Tuesday the Transportation Security Administration began a test-run at Logan of its SPOT program, which stands for Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques... “...The vast majority of passengers will experience a casual greeting conversation with the BDO as they go through identity verification,” a TSA spokesperson said. “A small portion of passengers may get selected for an extended, but still limited conversation.” Since its creation in 2007, TSA’s SPOT program has grown almost fifteen-fold.

    Clueless security screeners at Logan International Airport — the launching pad for the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center — were unaware of the terror threat posed by Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network, didn’t know how to spot Mace and even had trouble speaking English, according to astonishing revelations in newly released court documents.

    A shoeshine man at Logan International Airport was arrested yesterday on drug charges for allegedly offering customers a puff along with their buff. Anthony D. Scott, 47, of 170C Westview Ave. in Dorchester was charged with three counts of distribution of marijuana after a monthlong investigation by state police and federal agents, said David Procopio, a state police spokesman. Police arranged the sting after they were tipped off that Scott allegedly was selling small quantities of pot at a shoeshine stand in Terminal C, Procopio said.

    Adding former Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s name to Logan Airport is a dumb idea. In a June 19, 1964 plane crash, the senator almost lost his life. The senator’s nephew, John F. Kennedy Jr., died in a plane crash off Martha’s Vineyard. Rep. Lori Ehrlich, a Marblehead Democrat, filed legislation today that would rename the airport Logan-Kennedy International Airport. Everybody needs to slow down and take a breath. The Senate Institute at UMass might be nice, then a school here or there and maybe a hospital wing or cancer center, but let’s not overdo it and let’s be smart. Ted's...

    An irritable passenger offended by security grilling faces bomb threat charges in court today after reportedly telling Logan Airport security Saturday he was an Al-Qaeda terrorist here to “blow things up.” Massport officials tell the Herald the 27-year-old man had a ticket on his bag from Dubai of the United Arab Emirates and security began asking him questions. “He seemed aggravated and said ‘I’m Al-Qaeda and I’m here to blow things up,’ ” said Massport spokesman Phil Orlandella. Orlandella said the man, Asfaw Ermiyas of Washington, D.C., was taken into custody at the AirTran gate Saturday night at 7:15 p.m....

    The computer circuit board on Star Simpson's sweatshirt that security thought may have been a bomb at a Boston airport isn't out of character for her, according to the Maui woman's background, school affiliations and online supporters. But her mother, Stephanie Simpson, said it may have been a mistake because Star used the shirt the day before on career day at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and when she went to pick up her boyfriend at the airport. "It was just sleepyheads. She must have been just asleep to the fact of where she was going," Stephanie Simpson said.

    The links between Nick Berg and Zacarias Moussaoui, once described as the 20th hijacker of 9/11, opened now room for new speculations, if there are deeper ties between the OKC Bombing'95 and 9/11, than thought before. Apparently Berg knew also Moussaoui's roomates. One of them was Mujahid Menepta, who is connected to both 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1995 OKC bombing.

    October 26, 2004 - There is one thing John Kerry is consistent on: his propensity for manipulating the truth. From Vietnam to the floor of the senate to the halls of the United Nations, Kerry has stretched and exaggerated to create “the truth” and has done so without compunction. His latest “over the top” invention is his “two-hour meeting with the entire UN Security Council.” The crafting of this tale should tarnish his image in the eyes of his supporters, if not we should consider their intelligence highly suspect. Throughout his campaign he has embraced the mantra “Bush lied.” Starting...

There are two Senators from Massachusetts. Senator Ted Kennedy, 317 Russell Senate Office Building Washington D.C., and Senator John Kerry, 304 Russell Senate Office Building Washington D.C..

    Kerry fumbled, Bush picked up the Ball! Nancy Salvato September 11, 2004 In light of John Kerry spouting off about how he would have handled the minutes after the Twin Tower attacks differently than President George Bush, I think its time to look at just how ineffective Kerry truly is when it comes to fighting terror. It’s too bad there wasn’t a 9/11 commission set up to investigate Kerry’s actions before the travesty of New York. I would contest that the wrong people have been investigated for failure to prevent the largest act of terror on our soil –to date!...

    NYC police on watch for Port courthouse bomber By Andy Smith and Stephanie Akin Staff writers New York City police are targeting a man who bombed Newburyport Superior Court 28 years ago, saying he poses a threat to next week's Republican National Convention. But an anti-war activist group has accused police of trying to "smear" their reputation by linking the group with the convicted radical who terrorized New England with a series of bombings in the 1970s. New York City police say Richard J. Picariello, 55, is among 50 activists whose criminal histories will earn them extra attention next week....

    <p>March 23, 2004 -- I am writing to respond to misleading statements made by Paul Sperry in his March 15 Opinion column, "The Warning Kerry Ignored." The column is wrong on the facts and in its assertions. In fact, Sen. John Kerry's office promptly forwarded Brian Sullivan's tape warning of security lapses at Boston's Logan Airport to the Department of Transportation's Office of the Inspector General and contacted the General Accounting Office. Both of these federal offices have the authority and capacity to investigate security concerns.</p>

Too bad he didn't blast it when it really counted - four months before the hijackings, when he was hand-delivered evidence of serious security breaches at Logan International Airport, with specific warnings that terrorists could exploit them. Former FAA security officials say the Massachusetts senator had the power to prevent at least the Boston hijackings and save the World Trade Center and thousands of lives, yet he failed to...

    Israelis with military or security experience seem to have the inside track with U.S. corporations and government agencies looking for anti-terrorism expertise. Boston's Logan Airport - which came under heavy criticism because it was the departure point for the jetliners that brought down the World Trade Center - hired a former security director for Israel's El Al Airlines in October. In New Jersey, where authorities were faulted for poor intelligence operations after it was learned that several suspected terrorists lived and worked in the state, Gov. James E. McGreevey recently appointed an Israeli as his special counsel on homeland security....
