A disturbing report coming out of Minneapolis. What is really disquieting is how many open questions remain about this individual and his work at the airport there. Note that he had no criminal record that would prevent him from working at the airport. This means that we may never be able to know how many ISIS fighters have worked, or even now are working at our ports, airports etc.
That much is bad enough. But what is even worse is how much information about airport operations, security procedures etc. was passed on to ISIS by this individual and others ? It is not possible to completely secure our ports, and airports. The continued vigilance of loyal, patriotic Americans is our last best chance. This is a war, and we are all on the front lines ! Remain alert always !
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz warned that terrorists will target the West if the world does not unite to confront them. King Abdullah made the statement during a presentation of credentials ceremony held in Jeddah yesterday for new ambassadors to Saudi Arabia, including U.S. Ambassador Joseph W. Westphal.
“If neglected I’m sure they [terrorists] will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” said King Abdullah.
King Abdullah called on the ambassadors to convey to their governments the importance of a united pledge to confront terrorism. “The evils of terrorism must be fought with force, reason and speed,” he added.
King Abdullah also underlined the sanctity of human lives which terrorists ignore. “They even kill themselves,” said King Abdullah.
King Abdullah called for the establishment of an international center to combat terrorism more than 10 years ago out of his firm belief that terrorism can be most effectively fought when nations work closely together in all areas. In 2005, Saudi Arabia hosted the Counter-Terrorism International Conference in Riyadh during which the proposal for the establishment of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Center (UNCCT) was unanimously adopted. King Abdullah pledged $10 million to the U.N. to establish the center and, in 2011, Saudi Arabia signed an agreement with the U.N. to launch the UNCCT. Earlier this month, King Abdullah provided the center with a donation of $100 million to enhance its capabilities and effectiveness in helping countries combat terrorism.
