Concerned Marathoners Prompt Boston Plane Grounding Due To Arabic Passengers - Live Stream

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: In an unrelated event, Laguardia Airport has been evacated due to a suspicious package

And so the flashbacks to the aftermath of 9/11 begin, as apparently the only catalyst necessary to have a plane grounded and returned to the gate is to speak Arabic...

Via MyFoxBoston,

Sources told FOX 25 there was an American Airlines flight that was headed to Chicago. There were two men on that plane – not sitting next to each other – and speaking Arabic.


There were some concerned marathoners on the flight so the plane was brought back to the gate and the two men were escorted off the plane.


No other details were immediately available.

CBS adds the following stunner:


A picture on the ground from Boston:


Live Stream


So in hopes of diffusing what is already a very tense, if ridiculous situation, here is how in a world where Murphy's Law dominates and all it takes to be judged a potential terrorist is to have a deep tan and speak a language the average American is not familiar with (i.e., most of them), airplane seating truly works:

I was on a plane the other day when I figured out there were two guys that worked at the Federal Reserve sitting together in first class.  I complained to the stewardess that these people were terrorizing our country, but she just told me to STFU and read my SkyMall magazine.

I find the tone of the commentary by the author of the article offensive. The citizens of the country are living in fear and for them do do something, anything, to protect themselves, is long overdue. And if a few Arabs get inconvenienced, too bad.

How about this propaganda....... the bombers were Republicans.

But no sarcastic comment on that from ZH.

I remember that flight well. Another tip for travelers is if you are approaching the guy who checks and marks your tickets and you are right behind the guy with the turban, bend down to tie your shoes and let some people pass by. It decreases your chance of being in a group 'randomly selected' for extra security screening.

Where did Barbara Olson go then? She was on that flight nutter ...


She was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 77 en route to a taping of Bill Maher's television show Politically Incorrect when it was flown into the Pentagonin the September 11 attacks.


She also called her husband Ted Olson via one of those back-of-the-seat GTE 'AirFone' (remember those?) collect, a hard thing to do; she had to convince the operator to put the call through ...

That's adressed to all you NUTTERS denying she died as Flt 77 went into the Pentagon.

Not to digress or stir the pot, but... When was the last time we saw one of these phones in a plane?  Even when they were more 'common', most did not have them.  So now, as 'good luck' would have it, they all had these phones installed?  But they had the 'bad luck' to be on the wrong plane?

And those who claim that they were calling home via their cell phones (!?) are "full of shit":  YOU try making a call, ANY call, above 10,000 feet.  Can't be done -- no signal directed at sky.  All Wattage is directed to where the money is:  ground-to-ground.  Besides, at those speeds, good luck in getting linked and staying linked to any cell tower.  And don't get me going with BS about Sat Phones.  /Yeah, like everybody has one of those! And it's not like they had one of those Communicators from the Enterprise! /s

Wharever else was or was not going on that day, the alleged sky calls make me doubtful, leery & suspicious.

" Not to digress or stir the pot, but... When was the last time we saw one of these phones in a plane? "



OBVIOUSLY they (you?) did not read the article ... those services were discontined in the 2005 to 2008 timeframe (depending on CARRIER) 


In 2001, AirFone was still VIABLE and OPERATING.


DO you know HOW MANY phone calls were PLACED that day thru GTE AirFone services?


Practically ALL of them from the four hijacked airliners. There were NEWS ACCOUNTS of this plus AN INTERVIEW with one of the OPERATORS that routed those calls that day.


"At 9:45 a. m. September 11, 2001, GTE Airfone operator Lisa D. Jefferson heard screams and a scuffle on hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 before she was disconnected. She had been talking to Todd Beamer, who told her that he and some of the other passengers, “We’re going to do something.” He asked her to tell his wife and two boys that he loved them and then asked her to pray with him. He prayed the Lord's Prayer and she joined him.

The last thing she reports hearing him say was,“Are you guys ready?” And then, “Let’s roll.”"




End of story.


Weak assertions and innuendo to the contrary are simply INFOTRASH.

Kinetic energy increases as the square of velocity. At 600mph into steel and concrete people and aluminum get pretty shredded, and a transcontinental sized load of kerosene mixed with air and office supplies and building material does its work too.

Many Americans do not know what an Arab is so I find it suprising they knew they were speaking Arabic.  

What a difference a day makes. I spent Saturday night at the Boston Museum of Science. Not everyone was white or of european decent. My kid had the an exeperience few kids get. 24 hrs later look where we are. I wonder if those browned skinned families would now be given a seprate wing to sleep in so  as not to scare the other children. 

I am not saying these fears are not founded. I am just sad we have been sent back to Sept. 12 and now more freedoms may be taken with the excuse to keep us safe.

Talk about images you can never forget! We once had a 400 pounder in a car accident come in. After the six people got him on the table they proceeded to cut off his clothes. I heard one nurse scream and I promptly ran out of the room because when this happens it's often a loaded gun which usually falls on the floor and may fire. Turns out this guy had shoved 4 snicker bars in the folds of fat under his arms. I guess he had forgot them because they had grown into his skin creating an oozing, perspiring mass of paper, peanuts and stench. I guess I should have thanked him for curing any craving I had for a Snicker bar.

I travel waaaay too much and it's starting to affect my inner calm.  About six months ago I completely lost it on a flight when a woman across the aisle started changing her kid's diaper.  right.  fucking.  there.

When the stench hit me my head snapped around, and I saw what was going on.  Without thinking I just exploded, saying stuff like, "JESUS CHRIST!  What the hell are you doing?"  and "Lady, not everyone wants to smell your kid's shit!"  and "Why the hell do you think they have a changing table in the bathroom?" etc.  (To which she replied "it's too small . . . ")

Even though everyone else around me was a fucking pussy and said nothing i shamed her into packing up that horror scene and moving it into the bathroom.

I try to "go to my happy place" before getting on a plane, but some thing are just intolerable in an environment in which we're practically stacked like cordwood.

Damn.  It still irritates me.

Agreed.  My objection was to how that situation was handled by the parent. 

I've been on other flights where toddlers were shrieking because of, say, ear pain.  I didn't say a word because the children are in pain and inconsolable; there's nothing the parents can really do.

Perhaps you are unfamiliar with the current state of air travel in the US.  A commercial airliner is a stressful, crowded, confined environment.  In those conditions, everyone needs to act with at least a modicum of courtesy and consideration for others nearby.  The Japanese have honed this into an art form, and it makes otherwise intolerable situations . . . tolerable. 

Alternatively, perhaps you haven't thought through the position you're taking, which seems to be "anything goes."  If that's the case, I would welcome the chance to sit beside you on a six-hour transcontinental flight to repeatedly and continuously illustrate why you're wrong.

And finally, go fuck yourself.

Yepper ol lady carries a badge yet was still taken aside and had a wand run between her legs. She went nutso on em. Her first expeience like that was years ago when while riding with me in the Texas desert I got profiled and we were pulled. She was afraid we were gonna be killed by cops. It was an epiphany for her. All I could say was welcome to my world.

She married me anyway. Go figure.

People who have been cops or spent enough quality time with them understand the risk.

Wonder if these "concerned marathoners" will have all white people that speak american pulled from the plane, once they find out that the bomber was a white male. These bombs were crude and designed to scare more than kill. That's not the SOP for middle eastern terrorist groups.

Blackwater (or whatever incarnation they currently go by) and any number of mercenary orgs. will be glad to supply  em with oath takers that got no problem killing for money. And do well too.

Right, and that's why people like Alex Jones get so much play: people KNOW something is fishy.  Not really the attack so much; but the reasons for it. 

When I go to the dronestrike twitter and see dead babies each day as a result of bomb controlled by an Air Force tough guy in just has to wonder, "When does this come back to bite us in the ass?". 

At some point, not EVERY attack is a false flag, but a result from a sick society that ignores real issues (I feel this way about Sandy Hook as well; this wasn't some govt conspiracy to ramp up the taking of our guns - it was a result of a fucked up family who had a mental patient in their house who was recieiving medication who had HUGE anger issues). 

A society which isn't honest with itself or one another, and quite have people who WILL benefit from this attack, financially.....whether in war, "police state" business activities, or just simple punditry.

Shit is getting real, and really, our leaders are losing control.  For the anarchist, this is the best of times AND the worst of times.

Just because the world is filled with self-propelled tools, that doesn't mean there aren't handlers guiding them while providing them with the logistical support required.

As it turns out, most, if not all captured terrorists plotting an attack have been part of an FBI sting.

Oh, and the idea that the "leaders" are losing control is laughable. Puppets only know to do what their masters direct them to do. Not only have they never had control, they wouldn't understand it if they did.

For the majority, sure this still exists.  I gotta say though - "reading" the internet, the forums, places like here......people are pretty fucking skeptical of the government, man.  Especially younger folk like myself. 

We don't want any more wars - if an "Iraq" scenario comes up again, people are going to fight it WITH SUPPORT.  Back in 2003, being anti-war was almost being labeled as a terrorist.  Now?  Most people agree with you (because the "war" was a failure).

Sure, the mainstream people aren't, as well as the baby boomers - but that's because they are more bought off.  They are intellectually corrupted, and for most of them, they dont even know it (which is a problem you mentioned, I agree).

The poor and the struggling families and those who read however.......they don't respect the majority of the people who "run" our system.  They only respect the weapons that their bodyguards hold.

all it takes to be judged a potential terrorist is to have a deep tan and speak a language the average American is not familiar with (i.e., most of them), airplane seating truly works:


yes - that is what your Government has taught you.

I watch with laughter as the sheepeople cling to the coattails of the thieving bankers and politicians - sofearful are they of the Arabic speaking robe wearers.

They have you right where they want you.

Still - Faux news has a face to report this - considering it's one of the prime places where the phrases 'Islamic' 'Terrorist' and 'Muslim' are used, deliberately in close conjunction with each other - to the point that the 'average' American thinks they are the same.

What will they do when they discover there are 'white' muslims too!


Substitute 'Muslim' and 'Islam' for 'Juden' and 'Judaism' - and hey presto - you have gone back 70 years in an almost mirror of the same shit pumped out by the Nazi's

'Let's see. Two amateur-style, relatively low-yield bombs go off on Tax Day, in Boston, at the 26th mile of the marathon, the segment which was dedicated to the victims of the Newtown shooting. The time of the blast was designed to go off at the highest traffic time of the marathon -- at the average finish time of the previous year's event. The date and event seem to have no connection to Islam or any international issues or events, and no credible terrorist group is taking credit for this, even though they usually rush to.

true libertarians are the most tolerant, you do what you want, i'll do what i want, just stay off my property.   

distraction of who the antagonist is:  dem vs rep (wrong!);   liberal vs tea party (wrong again);   more detailed:  gop vs tea party (still not the right fight).   our antagonist is still hidden, probably in plain sight.
