FBI warns of terror threats

2011-09-04 14:34

Washington - The FBI and the Homeland Security Department are warning about small airplane terror threats just days before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, but authorities say there is no credible or specific information about a plot.

The FBI and DHS say as recently as early this year, al-Qaeda considered ways to attack the aviation sector because it would have a greater impact than other means of attack. That's from a September 2 bulletin obtained by The Associated Press.

The bulletin was sent to law enforcement and private officials around America but was considered routine. The five-page document described al-Qaeda's continued interest in recruiting Western terror operatives to get training on flying small aircraft.

Federal and local law enforcement has increased security around the country before the anniversary.

    I read an article recently that more than half of "terror attacks" in the USA are planned and carried out by the FBI themselves. So don't believe a word these scumbags say.

      Valis, i agree fully, and dont worry about all the thumbs down, its just news24 themselves that dont like your comment.

    I agree, Valis. Tons of evidence show that 911 was an 'inside job' by a cabal of government agents to give the US an excuse and the moral high-ground, to invade the Arab/Muslim lands which are a threat to Israel's security. I personally rejoice if a real terrorist is killed. But I have realised long ago that not all of those whom the West labels as such are indeed terrorists. Killing innocents is terrorism. Killing foreign troops who are invading your land, placing their sell-out puppets in power and stealing your resources, is legitimate Freedom-fighting and Jihaad. 911 is to be commemmorated yet again. But what about the innocent Afghans, Palestinians and Iraqis who are still experiencing state terrorism - legitimised only because it is being conducted by the "good guys" like Israel and the USA?

      "innocent Afghans, Palestinians and Iraqis"?? every day on the news we hear/read/see ....bla bla bla while shouting 'Allahu Akbar'.... bla bla bla! Dear Arab world. Its time you start realizing you God doesn't want you to die for you religion. Its time you started loving life rather than death... that's why God brought you to this earth. From Egypt to Libya, From Syria to Iran, Bahrain and Yemen - you people are just too violent. take a chill pill, relax and start enjoying life. (and to the Palestinians... did you not realise yet that violence doest work? choose peace for once and see the benefits!) enough with this world terror!! it is your lack of understanding and compromise that has led to the suffering of so many (of you own). when you people start to respect other religions in the same way you DEMAND respect maybe this will be a better world to live in. Afghanistan, Bosnia, Cote d’Ivoire, Cyprus, East Timor, Indonesia, Gaza, Kashmir, Kosovo, Kurdistan, Macedonia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Chechnya, Serbia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Tajikistan, Egypt, Syria, Sudan, Ethiopia, Tunisia, Algeria, Yemen, etc. For now though, it is of no surprise that the list of conflicts above continues too grow... ever thought something may be wrong with you?? - and not with your USA/West/Israel scapegoats??

      Very true, and backed up by irrefutable evidence, anyone who has taken the time to read the official government 9/11 report will also agree. The 9/11 attack wasn't even an attack on America, it was an attack on international soil against the world biggest financiers.

      The bottom line: The Arabs aren't happy! They're not happy in Gaza.. They're not happy in Egypt. They're not happy in Libya. They're not happy in Morocco. They're not happy in Iran.. They're not happy in Iraq.. They're not happy in Yemen. They're not happy in Afghanistan. They're not happy in Pakistan. They're not happy in Syria. They're not happy in Lebanon. And where are they happy? They're happy in Britain. They're happy in France. They're happy in Italy. They're happy in Germany. They're happy in Sweden. They're happy in the USA. They're happy in Norway. They're happy in Australia. They're happy in every country that is not Muslim.... [And if not totally happy then relatively happy...] And who do they blame?? Not Islam. Not their own leadership. Not themselves........ THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES IN WHICH THEY ARE HAPPY.

    The joke is that America faces a direct threat from American passport carrying citizens not from outside extremists, so glad their policy of importing cheap black and Asian labor has worked out so well for them. We will talk again after the pole shift
