At least three eyewitnesses spotted al Qaeda hijackers casing the security checkpoints at Bostons Logan Airport months before the 9/11 attacks. They saw something and said something but were ignored, newly unveiled court papers reveal.
One of the witnesses, an American Airlines official, actually confronted hijacking ringleader Mohamed Atta after watching him videotape and test a security checkpoint in May 2001 four months before he boarded the American Airlines flight that crashed into the World Trade Center.
The witness alerted security, but authorities never questioned the belligerent Egyptian national or flagged him as a threat.

Not surprising. This is the same turn-a-blind-eye mentality we see going on with government bureaucrats as they deal with the Ebola fiasco.

FLASHBACK: Actor James Woods witnessed dry-run to 9/11
“A month before the 9/11 al-Qaida attack that took almost 3,000 lives, at least two of the hijackers performed a dry-run, much like those recently reported by inflight commercial airline personnel. And 9/11s dry-run was witnessed and reported by none other than award winning actor and producer James Woods.
On Aug. 1, 2001 while on a flight from Boston to Los Angeles, Woods observed odd behavior by four Middle Eastern-looking men as he related to Bill OReilly on Fox News just a few months later. Concerned that the plane may about to be hijacked, he reported what hed observed to a flight attendant and the aircrafts first officer.”
After the flight landed, nobody even interviewed the would-be hijackers.
James Woods Reported a 9/11 Trial Run and No One Listened
“Woods mentioned his concerns to a flight attendant, who put him in touch with the first officer of the plane. Nothing more came of that discussion. Once he landed in LA, Woods brought up what he had observed onboard to airport authorities. He was again turned away without immediate investigation.”
“I wonder if the powers that be ignored everything because they didnt want to appear to be racist.”
Even AFTER 9/11 we can’t use profiling or other common sense techniques for screening passengers or threats.
The POSs in government are perfectly willing to see us peons committ national suicide, as long as they're behind walls they think will protect them. I am convinced they fully intend to absorb nuclear weapons attacks and still do nothing to profile the terrorists. Is there any wonder why government scum bags are held in such contempt?
