I thought US Airways had the cojones to just say no. I thought the airline had the guts to put passenger security over the whining of extremist Muslim activists who deliberately acted suspiciously on board a flight, in order to test the system, file lawsuits, and perhaps see how far they could go in mimicking the behavior of the 9/11 hijacking terrorists.

And perhaps the airline did have the guts. It valiantly fought CAIR and the Muslim imams for a long time. But, sadly, left-wing Federal Dhimmi, er . . . Judge Ann Montgomery, a Bill Clinton nominee, ruled against the company, every step of the way, including ignoring federal law. It’s hard to fight a fair fight, when the “referee” ties your hands behind your back and allows your opponent to take repeated, unhindered punches at your face.
Ultimately, like Northwest Airlines (now part of Delta) and virtually every corporation in America, today, CAIR announced that the US Airways settled the Six Flying Imams’ Lawsuit. One of the few exceptions seems to be American Airlines. And that’s because they had a wise and no-nonsense judge in Detroit-based Federal Judge Paul D. Borman.
And not only did US Airways settle, but in a CAIR gloatation (yes, I know, it’s not a word; I made it up), the unindicted terrorism co-conspirator organization behind the lawsuit announced that US Airways paid an undisclosed amount of compensation to the “Flying Imams.” Yup, your plane tickets on US Airways help subsidized hush money to extorting Muslim clerics.
In Judge Montgomery’s world, who cares if the imams behaved completely inappropriately for air travel, blocked flight attendants and sought seatbelt extenders they didn’t need? Who cares if they frightened passengers, a myriad of whom thought they were going to have to make that cellphone call to give a last good-bye to loved ones?
Pay up. So sad, that US Airways wasn’t able to fight on and was forced to hand this victory to extremists who want us to give up our security, while they take over.
Perhaps the airline didn’t believe they’d get a fair jury in Minneapolis, which is fast becoming the satellite state of Al Shabaab’s Somalia. And definitely, they saw other bad handwriting on the wall, when Judge Ann Montgomery ruled against the airline every step of the way on key motions and also ruled that CAIR-pimped suits by the Flying Imams against the police involved in the case could proceed. Perhaps the Metropolitan Airports Commission, also a defendant in the case, was dominated by PC-types, liberals, and penny-pinchers who don’t value principle and precedent.
Regardless of the reasons, it’s yet another sad sign we’re losing our country from within. And Judge Ann Montgomery is queen of the useful idiots in that war.
