EXCLUSIVE: More Frightening Details of Muslim Carjacking @ Airport; DRY RUN for Car Bombing?

More disturbing details are coming in on the carjacking by a Muslim Arab male, yesterday evening, at Detroit Metro Airport.
, law enforcement sources told that the man–an Arab male–carjacked a cab at the airport and drove it down I-94 freeway until he was finally caught near Willow Run airport a few miles away. He had to be tazed by law enforcement in order to be subdued.
Now, law enforcement sources have shared more disturbing information with , indicating that this could have been a dry run for a car bomb plot.
The law enforcement sources say the carjacker, named Mohammed, drove to Detroit Metro Airport, yesterday, leaving his car parked (illegally) in front of the McNamara terminal (the main terminal at Detroit Metro), where pick-ups and drop-offs take place. He left the car there, then ran to the cab area in the nearby parking structure, carjacking the cab.
Although authorities found no explosive materials in the illegally parked car, it appears this could have been a dry run to see how long a car could remain unoccupied in front of many people walking in and out of the airport. Why else would a man in the Detroit area drive a car to the airport, park it illegally in front of the airport terminal, and carjack a cab to get away immediately afterward?
This past weekend, as our nation observed the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Bush’s homeland security advisor, Fran Townsend, claimed that since 9/11, the Bush Administration has established complete security “from curb to cockpit.” Not the case.
In fact, there has never been security from the curb to the security checkpoints inside airports, and several officials have long complained (to deaf airs) that a terrorist could easily get inside any airport and blow it up at any point until the TSA security checkpoints. They argued that checkpoints should begin outside of airport entry points.
This incident shows that their concerns are valid.

“sources say the carjacker, named Mohammed”
You mean his name wasn’t Clem, or Leroy, or Jimmy?

Ship this scum to Gitmo…no questions asked. Give him a prayer rug, a Qur’ an, and a beating!

I’m glad the cops caught the perp.
How do the Israelis’ handle this area of their airports?

1– at the main airport in Israel, Ben Gurion, at the ancient Jewish town of Lod, near Tel Aviv, there are checkposts for vehicles long before anybody gets close to the terminal building. Guards at the checkposts are carrying uzi submachine guns or other firearms
2– Speaking of dry runs and tests, I remember that in the month before the present war here broke out, there were several stabbings in the northern Jerusalem Jewish neighborhood of Neveh Ya`aqov [adjacent to Arab neighborhoods], whereas the situation had been relatively peaceful for a few years. Then, the day before [or the early morning before] Ariel Sharon went up on the Temple Mount, Israeli soldiers were bombed [by a concealed bomb] at or near the Netsarim intersection in the Gaza Strip. One soldier died of his wounds a day or two later. His name was Barashi or Biri, as I recall. The day after Sharon went up on the Temple Mount, an Israeli Border Guard [Mishmar haGvul] soldier [of Ethiopian origin] was shot in the back by his Arab companion on a joint patrol. People may have forgotten that after Oslo, Israeli troops and “palestinian authority” armed men [“security personnel”] went out on joint patrols, supposedly in order to learn to cooperate and promote “peace”. In other words, this Israeli soldier was murdered by his companion on a “peace-promoting” joint patrol.
Getting back to the main point, this seemingly bizarre behavior at the Detroit airport could very well be a dry run, a test to see what they can get away with and how far they can go, and whether their excuses can work.

Immediately after 9/11, at LAX you couldn’t drive your car up to the front of the terminal. All private autos had to go into the parking structure, have the vehicle searched, and then the passengers had to walk a couple of hundred yards to the terminal for checkin. But these rules seem to have disappeared at every airport across the land. It’s another attack, just waiting to happen.

The goverment cannot protect all the people all the time.Who takes care of the airport?We cant be playing the blame game .We have to learn as a people to watch out for each other or someone goin to get hurt.Noting stopping the airport from protecting its own curbs.Maybe what we need to do is to start sueing the airports because they cant protect there own customers.Wow thats so awsome we have a lot of lawers running around !
