The Untold Story of Delta Flight 1824
Doug Hagmann from NEIN gave me another exclusive Friday morning on the show.
9 September 2007: The passengers aboard Delta Airlines Flight 1824 flying out of Orlando International Airport last Thursday at 7:15 a.m. heard the following statement over the intercom as they were preparing to taxi onto the runway on their way to Atlanta, Georgia:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have been informed that there is “a credible security risk with this aircraft” and we are returning to the terminal.
Delta Flight 1824 was scheduled to take off at 7:15 a.m. on September 6, 2007, but did not take off until 10:19 – three hours and 5 minutes behind schedule, landing in Atlanta without incident at 11:52 a.m. This report could have been quite different had it not been for the great work by security officials on-site at the Orlando airport. The events that led to the delay might never have seen the light of day had it not been for those special people who care about bringing the honest truth of the Islamic terrorist threat to the public.
If you rely on official government statements and the major media, the entire incident involving Flight 1824 was “benign” and was never a security risk. It involved 12 people from two families, all of Middle Eastern origin, reportedly carrying suspicious items in their luggage. Again, if you rely on official government statements and the major media, the “suspicious items” inside of checks luggage turned out to be “a bottle that had been covered with tape to prevent leaking.”
"It was all benign," said Dave Couvertier, the FBI agent from the Tampa, Florida Orlando FBI office. The flight ultimately took off about 10:20 a.m. without the two families, who were still undergoing FBI questioning at that time. They were ultimately released, stated FBI spokesman Couvertier. Knowing the series of events that caused the abrupt turnaround of Flight 1824, let’s see how “benign” this incident really was. Read the rest of the details HERE.
More info on the incident at Orlando International Airport see below from a source on the inside.
There were 9 middle easterners, supposedly a family. 3 females and 6 males, they were "randomly"selected by the airline for additional screening by TSA. As a "SELECTEE" we automatically run an "EXPLOSIVE TRACE DETECTION" test on your bags after xray.
2 of the bags and some contents tested positive for SEMTEX (an explosive used by terrorists.) We tested the bags 4 times using different machines and got a positive each time. We then dump the bags...we found 3 jars of Vaseline duct taped together (as 1 cylinder) they tested positive. The Vaseline had been removed and put back in the jars, as we could see the voids on xray. We found strands of wire with the ends stripped, packets of the small eyeglass screw drivers, and 2 of the males had Vaseline smeared on their arms and neck areas. 3 of the males had false or fraudulent credentials, 1 male possessed 2 pass ports (same picture different names). After 2 hrs the FBI and OPD took them away from the checkpoint to the OPD station at OIA. From that point on I don't know what happened with them...
We removed all bags from the plane and did complete bag searches at the International gate side. We (TSA) found the 8 large bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide, not the bomb dogs.
You are 100% on the right track here. OIA is playing this thing down (probably for the bottom line) drasticly.
Hope this helps and is legible as I'm in a bit of a time crunch here.
thanks for getting the word out...OH! NOTHING IN THE LINE OF REAL EXPLOSIVES WAS FOUND, JUST TRACES.
I have more....At about 1;00 pm Thurs. the same scenario was repeated, a middle eastern female was detained at the same checkpoint at OIA. Her bag tested positive for SEMTEX. An OPD officer on duty at the time confirmed to me, she was directly connected to the family earlier.
Also, if this was a "BENIGN" incident, why is TSA requesting all available for overtime to work Sat.and Sun. "just to walk around the airport, to show a presence"...
I know I have your support with my anonymity
