Remember Annie Jacobsen? She wrote in Women's Wall street about many suspicious activities
Suddenly, seven of the men stood up -- in unison -- and walked to the front and back lavatories. One by one, they went into the two lavatories, each spending about four minutes inside. Right in front of us, two men stood up against the emergency exit door, waiting for the lavatory to become available. The men spoke in Arabic among themselves and to the man in the yellow shirt sitting nearby. One of the men took his camera into the lavatory. Another took his cell phone. Again, no one approached the men. Not one of the flight attendants asked them to sit down. I watched as the man in the yellow shirt, still in his seat, reached inside his shirt and pulled out a small red book. He read a few pages, then put the book back inside his shirt. He pulled the book out again, read a page or two more, and put it back. He continued to do this several more times.
Is it not possible that dry runs are being performed by terrorists to see what our defenses are? It is also being reported that Muslims are recruiting non Islamic men and women to do recon. We are at war with terrorists who want to destroy us, and actions like the ones Ms. Jacobsen witnessed cannot go unchecked.
But apparently the "Blame America First" crowd think Annie is just a cook.
Over at Pandagon.net, they have a "she just must be crazy" outlook.
Now, the officials in question contend that there was no threat from the Syrian musicians, although they did think that Annie was a threat because she wouldn't shut the fuck up about terrorism. I think that Billie Jo (who's not my lover) is actually being interviewed by the woman who caused her paralyzing fear
This type of shrugging off of the threat is the same thing which led us to be in this situation in the first place. If we would have acted in 1993, 1996 or 2000, perhaps 9/11 would have happened.
But if the folks over at Pandagon would have their say then, we would have just been fear mongering racists.Posted by psugrad98 at August 16, 2004 03:55 PM
