This story is so disturbing. In the name of not “profiling” or not daring to possibly offend someone…………
Let’s think back a few months before September 11, 2001. What do you suppose would have been the reaction had Massachusetts State Police and/or the FBI had posted photos of suspicious-looking Muslim men at airports nationwide?
Why, the ACLU and the other usual suspects would have screamed about racial profiling. Which is probably why his mugshot never was posted.Months before the horrific 9/11 attacks, lackadaisical state troopers specially assigned to protect Logan International Airport failed to act on tips that Middle Eastern men were casing security checkpoints armed with cameras, explosive new court documents allege.
One of the suspected terrorists whom troopers could have cornered was later identified as al-Qaeda 9/11 leader Mohammed Atta, according to lawyers for a Boston woman who is suing over the loss of her son. The lawyers took depositions from an airline employee and other witnesses.
Troopers were told the Middle Eastern men were “acting suspiciously” and videotaping airport security in May 2001, according to the filing in a New York court.
“When Mohammad Atta went through the security checkpoint after being reported to F Troop that he was photographing, videotaping and surveilling the checkpoints, Massport F Troop did nothing,” the documents state.
How many deaths might have been stopped? Could the attacks on 9/11 have been thwarted? Will we EVER get back to reality in America and start taking threats to our people more seriously than we take possibly offending someone??
