Hmmm.....

The following story is interesting on several levels, and unless I just missed it, it didn't make the news around here. Among the unintended takeaways of this story is the glaringly obvious fact that the billions in tax dollars that the TSA has cost us has only been effective in enriching special corporate interests (and providing jobs for government flunkies), which after all was the real intent all along.

The article suggests that "dry runs" for more hijackings may be taking place on commercial airliners. This has been confirmed by the airlines, the pilots union, and the FAA, but the TSA said that "no further investigation is required". Really? These hyper-aggressive cretins, who are busy groping people's privates and harassing the elderly, amputees, breast-feeding mothers, or pouring out expensive conditioner, can't be bothered to investigate middle-eastern males who are behaving suspiciously?

Why would that be? Simple incompetence, and the denseness the TSA is known for? Or is it because they already have their marching orders, and/or know the "suspicious" men are probably Mossad practicing for their next attack on America? You tell me.

Excerpt from WTSP.com in Tampa:

....A memo obtained by the 10 News investigators from the union that represents pilots for US Airways says that "there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat."

UPDATE: Memo in 10 News Investigation causes concern from terrorism experts

Koch says, "What most security experts will tell you that if a dry-run is occurring, the attack will shortly follow."

The pilots say the most recent dry-run occurred on Flight 1880 on September 2. The flight left Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. and headed to Orlando International. Crew members say that shortly after takeoff, a group of four "Middle Eastern" men caused a commotion.

The witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach, toward the flight deck door. He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom "for a considerable length of time."

While he was in there, the other three men proceeded to move about the cabin, changing seats, opening overhead bins, and "generally making a scene." They appeared to be trying to occupy and distract the flight attendants.... Read the rest here.
