Thanks to James “JD” Andary and the other readers who sent this story about Faid Beydoun a/k/a Miguel Garcia (and several other identities), the man who fled TSA officials and police at Miami International Airport on Sunday.
Mr. Beydoun, a Lebanese man with multiple different passports (including a phony U.S. passport), fled when TSA screeners asked him to open his bag, which contained cocaine. He was so worried he’d get caught he jumped 25 feet off the second floor concourse and broke his arm and ribs. (So sad, too bad.) He was scheduled to fly to Los Angeles, as were two men with whom he was staying in Miami. One of the men is from Bahrain, and–surprise! surprise!–Beydoun also poses as a Latino, “Miguel Garcia.” (Hey Latinos, the more you show solidarity with Muslim open borders advocates, the more they will use and defame you.)
What none of the media reports tell you–but I will–is that Mr. Beydoun is a Shi’ite Muslim whose family is extremely active at the highest levels of Hezbollah. (Several Beydouns have been arrested and/or convicted in various enterprises that money launder to Hezbollah, including food stamp fraud.) That’s significant because a significant portion of Hezbollah funding comes from drugs they grow in the Bekaa Valley and also in South America, where Hezbollah has colonized a significant area. Yes, dummies and losers, if you do drugs, you’re helping Hezbollah.
And I’m not the only one who knows Mr. Beydoun is involved with Hezbollah–and was probably drug trafficking for them. So does the FBI, which is why it–the lead (incompetent) agency on terrorism investigations–and the Joint Terrorism Task Force are “on the case” or at least claims to be. More info of interest:
His jail record lists an alias: Miguel Garcia.
At least one of the other men hails from Bahrain. The two men described Beydoun as a well-known party promoter who knows the best U.S. night spots. [DS: No surprise there. There are quite a few Arab Muslim "party promoters" and several of them have been tied to the drug-trade and financing terrorism.]
The men had apparently been partying in Miami-Dade, spending lavishly.
At Concourse D, just after 2 p.m., Beydoun passed through a security checkpoint but was flagged for a secondary inspection by federal Transportation Security Administration officers.
He had a Lebanese passport and a fraudulent U.S. passport, investigators said.
”He bolted and knocked a few people out of the way,” said Mark O. Hatfield Jr., TSA’s airport security director.
Chased by Miami-Dade officers, the man jumped over the second-floor departure concourse and landed outside the baggage-claim area.
Despite the broken bones, he ran a bit further.
”The officers on the first floor were able to apprehend him and place him under arrest,” said Miami-Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta, a spokesman.
Miami-Dade police were investigating the men along with South Florida’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, a host of federal and state agencies, including the FBI and Immigration and Customers Enforcement.
And, surprise!, he has no known address in the U.S. Wonderful:
Faid Beydoun, a Lebanese man with no known address, is charged with cocaine possession, loitering or prowling and resisting arrest without violence [DS: Hmmm . . . I'd say knocking people over is, indeed, violence] . . . .
Hatfield said Beydoun was carrying multiple identifications from multiple nationalities, “and that’s part of what raised suspicion.”
Police said Beydoun’s plane ticket was a last-minute purchase. Two men waiting for another American Airlines flight to L.A. said they purchased Beydoun’s ticket and hired him as a party promoter, intending to take their festivities across the country.
“Festivities”? Arab Muslims from Hezbollah with fake IDs and multiple identities transporting drugs on several planes across the country is now “festivities”? Sounds like that word has a new meaning. Bill Clinton’s parsing of words pales in comparison.
Well, I guess he was just “doing the jobs Americans won’t do”. Because everyone knows we have a shortage of party promoters in America, so we need illegal alien Hezbollah drug traffickers to do that back-breaking work.
If Arab and Muslim groups had it their way, the few of their kind who are actually flagged for a secondary screening (along with old ladies in wheelchairs), like Beydoun a/k/a “Garcia”, would never get caught. And that’s exactly what they want.
This is the real “flying while Arab” or, in Beydoun’s case, “flying while Arab a/k/a ‘Mexican’ a/k/a ‘American.’”
Can’t wait ’til Bill Warner sends me his mug shot.
