“Nothing to see here. Move along. No ties to terrorism.”
That’s the trite response we always hear from the FBI and other authorities whenever news of something that seems very, very suspicious breaks. In many of the cases, there probably are ties to terrorism.
That’s been the case with the then-missing 11 Egyptian students. It was also the case with the tunnel-plot in Baltimore (which has a link to the Egyptian students). It’s the case with many breaking news incidents.
The latest is yesterday’s case of the three truck drivers, Iraqi and Lebanese, from Dearbornistan, who tried to enter the Port of Miami in a truck. Two were hiding inside the truck, and the driver lied to authorities, saying that no-one was inside.
Now, law enforcement is saying it’s all a “misunderstanding” and a “miscommunication” and that the men were “legal immigrants.” Well, the driver was age 20. I’m told that you cannot legally drive a truck of that kind at age 20. You must be 21. If that’s the case, how did he get a CDL (Commercial Driver’s License)? Was his fraudulent?
I’ve written time and again about suspicious Muslims seeking CDLs at schools that have subsequently been raided by the FBI, resulting in federal charges. I’ve also written about terrorists like Nabil Al-Marabh, a Bin Laden associate who sought a CDL and the Detroit Terror Cell, which also sought CDLs
Also, what was the name of the trucking company? There are a few in Detroit that I can name, which are suspicious, engaged in apparent fraud, and run by Muslims. Is this one of those companies? Stay tuned.
Finally, the truck was carrying auto parts. Where did they come from? In 2000, Ali and “Mike” Boumelhem, convicted felons, ran a chop shop. As I wrote well before 9/11, they sold auto parts, too. And once, they got caught trying to sneak weapons to Hezbollah inside those auto parts. Would love to know if the auto parts in Miami, yesterday, were legally obtained.
And where were they headed? For what purpose? Investigator Bill Warner has long documented the multiple terrorists involved in the sale of used cars for use in carbombs and to finance terrorism.
That at least 2 of the 3 men have criminal records doesn’t make it any less suspicious.
Lots of questions. Few answers. But instant declarations of “miscommunication,” “not suspicious,” “no ties to terrorism.”
If that’s the case and there’s “nothing doing” here, why are authorities still holding the men, as of the last press reports? Just asking.
