Mistake or Political Correctness?: TSA Erases Jihadist Graffiti on Plane

By Debbie Schlussel

You have to ask yourself if the TSA did this on purpose.  I think the agency “flubbed” this deliberately.   It’s standard operating procedure for law enforcement to preserve a potential crime scene like this one, where it looked like it might be hinting at a terrorist attack that could kill plenty of passengers on a plane about to take off.


Chilling graffiti found in the bathroom of a jet due to take off from Newark Airport was inexplicably erased by a cleaner after the Transportation Safety Administration waited 47 critical minutes to contact cops, Port Authority sources told The Post yesterday.

“By the beard of Mohamed and mighty sword of Allah,” read the message found on a Continental Airlines jet Saturday night. It was scrawled in black ink, just above the mirror.

The message was discovered by a flight attendant who took a cellphone picture and notified the captain. He called his operations center, which notified the TSA.

Port Authority cops said they didn’t hear from the TSA for 47 minutes. The TSA said it notified the PA “within a few short minutes.”

During the delay, passengers got off the Little Rock, Ark.-bound jet and a cleaner scrubbed off the message, The Post’s sources said.

“The delay severely compromised the integrity of a crime scene,” said one PA police official.

It’s heard to believe such incompetence is just incompetence. Maybe they just can’t be bothered and it would make Muslims look bad. And we can’t have that.

Affirmative Action slobs who obviously are on the side of jihad and Muslims…Get rid of TSA. I am sick of this garbage.

    The TSA can grope male and female “junk” but they know how to clean up after jihadists!

    Good to know they have their priorities straight.

Uh, I think that’s just the name of a new rock band. Nothing to see here, folks.

They can’t have that. After all Debbie, don’t you know Muslims are crazy? If so, you weren’t paying attention to the non-issue of the indictments in New York synagogue bombing case yesterday.

Nothing to see here and its time to move on.

Maybe the TSA people were promised post-retirement jobs with Continental Airlines if they cooperated and erased the graffiti.

Now let me get this straight. As the passengers were exiting the plane, the powers that be neglected to inform a janitor of the situation, who then remained on board, and headed straight for the toilet in question with a bottle of lysol? I hope somebody is holding that guy in custody, and comparing his handwriting to whatever that stewardess captured on her cel-cam.

I vote for political correctness.

BTW, who believes that the plane that went down in East Rockaway two months after 9/11 was NOT due to Islam? (Was that #587?)

Also, why are there plenty of 9/11 Truthers but hardly anyone even remembers the East Rockaway crash? AND although I haven’t researched it for a few years, last time I looked (at least 7 years after 9/11) for info on it, there was almost NOTHING but one article by Daniel Pipes that *maybe* it was a shoe-bomber?

    If that’s the crash where there were reports of seeing a missle trail heading for the aircraft, I have not forgotten it. Everything was denied and it was dropped fast. Another example of a rotten government in D.C. I don’t care who the President was, he failed.

TSA = (T)emporary (S)ecurity (A)merica.

According to Janet Lesbiano, there is no sense in screening Muslims under the age of 35 unless they have been convicted of terrorism.


As for the rest of us, we all must be treated as terrorist suspects and subjected to the degrading pat down. I guess being sexually assaulted at airports is the price we must pay for our patriotism. That is the new age we live in.

    I try to travel on planes as little as possible.

    The Correct thing to do after 9/11 was NOT to have raised security on planes, but simply have told Islamic governments that every time there was an attack, failed or not, on the US, an Islamic city was going to die. After the next attack, and after Mecca was nuked, things would have calmed down. Bush’s problems began when he visited the Mosque and then retracted “Crusade.”

    Think of what it took to stop Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany in terms of enemy blood shed. Why do we think that the Caliphate will be any different?

TSA is part of the conspiracy created by secret societies to kill off sovereignty. Or as John F Kennedy put it before such a cabal led by communists and global extremists financed by Rothschild killed him…

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.”

Bob Porrazzo on June 17, 2011 at 6:06 am

The airline did not protect evidence of a crime before it could be properly analyzed and preserved by law enforcement. Idiots.

It is what it is! ITS (the possessive form referring to the message) purpose may have been to learn if and how long it would take to discover it. It’s (the contraction of “IT IS”) a method of using a message for multiple purposes, e.g. per above, increasing passenger fear, and plain “bragging rights”
for tagging us.

All of us are dealing with a force that despises us, hates specific members of our society,i.e. Jews, delights in barbarous acts both small and large, and believes itself to be “untouchable, omnipotent, and fearless”.

As far as I am concerned, they really do not understand the majority of Americans. Patton had it right – I paraphrase: AMERICANS LOVE A FIGHT. I believe that if it comes to protecting our country, our families – especially our children, and our way of life, well, they should be afraid…very afraid as Yoda instructed young Luke Skywalker. The FORCE is strong in us. Believe it!

And we expected…..?

I always believed that the East Rockaway crash was a successful shoe bomber.

Facts Life on June 17, 2011 at 9:29 am

    Thank you Facts. So do I.

    I wonder why there are so many morons who are 9/11 Truthers BUT they have not a thing to say on the East Rockaway plane?

    Nothing like creating a conspiracy theory when there is none (other than the USA dropping the ball on the threat of Islam) and totally ignoring a possible bona fide one.

    I think I will research it again. A few years back I was shocked at how barren the web was on ANY info on it.

    Skunky on June 17, 2011 at 10:17 am

I think the TSA was created by the terror safety agency.
