Jihadists Steal Commercial Jets, Raise 9/11 Fears

Jihadists have stolen several commercial jetliners in Libya, raising concerns with intelligence officials about 9/11-style terror strikes as the 13th anniversary approaches, several news reports say.

The Algerian news site al-Fadjr on Aug. 6 said 11 aircraft went missing from Tripoli International Airport during fighting between militias, IHS Jane's 360 reports, but says the Algerian report was "probably not credible."

Subsequently, Mohamed Frikha, CEO of the Tunisian airline company Syphax, told Tunisia's Shems FM that two Airbus-A320 aircraft belonging to Libyan company Ifriqiya were missing from Misratah, Jane's reports.

And most officials say they can't do anything with them, any more they can with all the other military equipment they've gotten hold of.

Quoting Billiejeens:

They probably can use them to hit cities in the middle east.

Probably more efficient, though, to sell them and use the money raised to buy things designed as weapons.


The point about 9/11 is that America didn't know those planes were being operated by enemy forces until too late.   They were already on the radar pattern as non-hostile aircraft with valid IDs.

Well that would suck.  At this point, the U.S. need to stop acting as if we rule the world.  It only makes us a target.  Shut our pie hole.

However, no credible sources are reporting this.  Even Fox News is referencing a well known inflammatory "media site."

No doubt if you were forewarned about 19 terrorist hijackers using American planes to crash into bldgs before 911, you'd have a similar statement. No worries, can't be done.

So it's America's fault terrorists hate us? Do you really believe if Americans huddle down in our country, keep our mouths shut, evil people will leave us alone? You don't understand hate, intolerance, a diabolical drive for power and control do you!?

I don't listen to Al-Jazeera but some of you may.


Missing Libyan jetliners raise fears of suicide airliner attacks ...


Al Jazeera television reported in late August that western intelligence reports had warned of terror threats to the region from 11 stolen commercial jets.

They've gotten hold of all kinds of military equipment left there by US . There is a helicopter headed for your home, LOL.
