[url]http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/4103565.htm[/url] Posted on Thu, Sep. 19, 2002 FBI: Next hijackers may not look the part Los Angeles Times Service WASHINGTON - FBI officials issued a bulletin Wednesday warning about an alleged plan by al Qaeda members to hijack a commercial airliner in the United States using Muslim extremists of non-Arabic appearance. ''Purportedly, al Qaeda members have discussed using [b]Chechnyan Muslims[/b] affiliated with al Qaeda but already present in the U.S. for such operations in order to avoid security scrutiny at airports,'' the bulletin said. ``Once aboard the aircraft as many as 10 or 20 hijackers seated in first class would overwhelm the crew and seize control.'' Additionally, the bulletin warned, al Qaeda members have purportedly discussed using ``improvised explosive device components transported onto commercial aircraft in carry-on luggage. The components -- consisting of clear liquids possibly mixed with coffee -- would appear to be nonthreatening but would become highly explosive during flight.'' The sourcing of the information suggests that it was based upon ''discussions'' among al Qaeda members prior to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to the bulletin. ''The FBI possesses no new information indicating that such operational planning is currently being pursued by the al Qaeda network or any other group. However, law enforcement and security agencies should remain alert to the possibility,'' said the warning, which was sent to joint terrorism task forces throughout the United States. Can someone explain why I shouldn't be pissed?

Heck, why bother with European Muslims when they could probably just recruit a bunch of American citizens to do the job? Just think about it. No passport problems, already in position and ready to strike at the evil Satan that is America. They could probably recruit on D.U. Or the Berkeley campus.

[b]If my first statement is incorrect, then ignore the rest of the post.[/b] Aren't those the wonderful people that the US tried to save under the guise of NATO by bombing the shit out of Yugo? Milosevic should be returned to power. Aren't they supposed to be our friends? Since when was the US so concerned with rat control? I was young when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan but I knew it was bad news when I heard the US was supplying them. Would it have been so bad to have another Russian republic in Afghanistan? Now you all see what happens when you try to help people? Stingers still unaccounted for and all. The US should've let Iran/Iraq blow each other to hell. Lesson to be learned, don't help anyone!

Never happen. Reason being is the guy who would be in charge of setting up those camps is the same guy who is keeping the FAA from "profiling." Turns out he is a Japanese American whose family was interned in WW2. Forget his name though. Editted to change FCC to FAA cause it's REALLY late.

Yeah, it's incorrect. You're thinking of the Croats. Or the Serbs. Chechens come from Georgia(the one that's south of Russia).
