Plot to blow up JFK International

Feds arrest 3 in alleged JFK airport terror plot

Four Muslim men were foiled from carrying out a plot to destroy John F. Kennedy International Airport, kill thousands of people and trigger an economic catastrophe by blowing up a jet fuel artery that runs through populous residential neighborhoods, authorities said Saturday.

Three men were arrested and one was being sought in Trinidad on Saturday. In an indictment charging the four men, one of them is quoted as saying the plot would –cause greater destruction than in the Sept. 11 attacks.”

Cries that

  1. These guys were incompetent
  2. Their plans had no chance of success
  3. More people die in traffic accidents than in terrorist attacks
  4. That this is nothing but a Bush plot to keep us all living in a climate of fear

  1. Or in Thom’s case, ‘peanut allergies kill more than terrorism.’ still doesn’t mean we shouldn’t lose focus.

  2. But Murdoc, 1. These guys were incompetent 2. Their plans had no chance of success 3. More people die in traffic accidents than in terrorist attacks 4. And this is nothing but a Bush plot to keep us all living in a climate of fear Just like 9/11 Why shouldn’t the media report that?

  3. I am a little surprised that the mohammedans appear to be of African descent. This adds new problems in looking out for these folks because they are not in the mold of middle eastern mohammedans ala Bin Laden and Atta. This, along with the caucasian Albanians who wanted to trash Fort Dix, will make racial profiling much more difficult. Other than religion, the only commonality between Atta, these black guys and the Albanians is that were foreign born. I believe we are playing Russian roulette with our immigration policy and lack of credible border enforcement. Unfortunately, Bush and Co. have been AWOL on this issue and I don’t see it improving. I can’t even imagine how many of these bastards are already living in the USA, maybe in a sanctuary city, secure in knowing they will never be deported.

  4. This says to me that we need to issue more H1B visas. After all, what damage could an engineer with murder on his mind do? Hmm, you don’t think they could use knowledge as a weapon, do you? No, surely not. We might as well let them flood into the country and program our computers, and design our airplanes, highways, bridges. Just because they want to kill us, doesn’t mean they won’t do just as good a job as an American engineer, right? We are fools. We give them all the money, training, and access they need, and then wonder how this kind of thing could happen here. Then we have these liberal idiots who think if we just deny it is happening, it won’t be a problem. It’s just too bad the terrorists don’t always kill the right people. At least they tend to concentrate on the big cities. That makes the odds of killing a liberal much greater.
