  • TSA rejects arming officers after LAX shooting

    The head of the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday his agency has officially rejected arming officers in response to a November attack at Los Angeles International Airport. John Pistole made the comments after a news conference to announce the opening of a “pre-check” application site for expedited screening at LAX. TSA union officials have called for creating armed officers from the agency to ensure safety at screening checkpoints. But Pistole said virtually every issue is on the table except for arming officers. Introducing more guns is not the solution, he said. The agency is conducting a review of the shooting...

    From 60 Minutes last night: Susan Rice: Lesley, it’s been worth what we’ve done to protect the United States. And the fact that we have not had a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11 should not be diminished. But that does not mean that everything we’re doing as of the present ought to be done the same way in the future.

    CBSLA Text Alerts Back To School: Features, News & PhotosFollow Us On Twitter LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — An Associated Press report published Friday says help was delayed for more than 30 minutes for the Transportation Security Administration agent who was fatally shot at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month. Gerardo Hernandez, 39, was working at a lower-level passenger check-in station on the morning of Nov. 1 when a gunman pulled a semi-automatic weapon out of a duffel bag and opened fire. Two law enforcement officials cited in the AP reports said paramedics waited 150 yards away because police had...

    - An airport security officer lay helplessly bleeding after a gunman opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport as paramedics waited 150 yards away because police had not declared the terminal safe to enter, according to two law enforcement officials.It would be 33 minutes before Transportation Security Administration Officer Gerardo Hernandez, who was about 20 feet from an exit, would be wheeled out by police to an ambulance, said the officials, who were briefed on the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe was still ongoing into the Nov. 1 shooting.For all but five of those minutes,...

    In that report, Jones found that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint screeners are receiving training to prepare them for the possibility of a mass shooting at one of the agency’s airport checkpoints, and those TSA personnel are being instructed to “save themselves” should a shooting occur. One TSA worker told Jones, “Every day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.”
  • Was the attack on the TSA at LAX a false flag to justify ARMING the agents? [Vanity]

    It's all in the title, but worth considering that the attack on the TSA and the supposed 'note written by the shooter' stating he wanted to "Kill the TSA" is all a false flag for the purpose of starting a movement to arm the TSA agents. The King is always looking to grow his 'Civilian National Security Force' and the TSA is well over 50,000 strong. We know probably over half of them couldn't even qualify to carry a firearm due to their shady pasts, but don't be surprised if calls to arm the TSA get stronger over the next...

    “Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The suspect’s screed also mentioned “fiat currency” and “NWO,” possible references to the New World Order, a conspiracy theory that foresees a totalitarian one-world government. By all accounts, Ciancia was reserved and solitary. Former classmates barely remember him and even a recent roommate could say little about the young man who moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles less than two...

    LOS ANGELES ( — A TSA agent was killed and several other people were injured Friday in a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport, police said.

    "The American government sure is easily baffled.

Adds exasperated columnist Dennis Prager, "This country's officials are in a state of denial and confusion that is almost as frightening as the terrorists they are supposed to be fighting." But there is reason for this confusion. Though President Bush has declared that we are fighting a "war on terrorism," he has yet to define what terrorism is,...

    Well, at least now we know how Mayor James Hahn and the local FBI leadership will treat the public during a time of violent crisis: Like children, who need to be lied to. The shooting at Los Angeles International Airport was just a few hours old when Hahn stepped up to the microphones and declared, "We have no reason to believe that this was a terrorist activity." No reason? That the attack came on July 4, at a favorite airport among terrorist plotters, and at the one ticket counter in all of Southern California that represented the state of Israel...

    <p>The latest statements from the Federal Bureau of Investigation insist that although Egyptian immigrant Hesham Mohamed Ali Hadayet went to the El-Al Airline ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport intending to kill people, "his motive remains unclear." The response thus far in the United States and abroad to these July Fourth killings is reminiscent of the tale of the five blind men and the elephant, each man groping a different part of the animal and insisting on a different beast.</p>

By Published 7/5/02 12:30:00 PM Hesham Mohamed Hadayet LOS ANGELES -- Israel calls the shooting at Los Angeles International Airport a terrorist event but U.S. investigators say they are unsure. Egypitan limousine driver Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, 41, began shooting people in front of the El Al airline ticket counter yesterday. A security guard shot and killed Hadayet. A drivers licence found by police listed his birthday as July 4, 1961, as well as a second birthdate. Los Angeles Police and the F.B.I. are searching...

    No wonder the FBI failed to seek a warrant last year to search the belongings of Zacarias Moussaoui: The agency can't seem to detect an Arab extremist when the fanatic telegraphs the fact to the entire world. One did on Independence Day, but you'd never know it from what the FBI has been saying since. Shortly before noon on the Fourth of July, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet marched toward the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport carrying two pistols and a 6-inch knife. This Muslim immigrant from Egypt pulled out a .45-caliber automatic and began to murder people....
