Iraqi-born Airline Mechanic Denied Bail as Terrorism Ties Questioned

You already know the news from earlier this month.  I told you about it here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ and for once the mainstream media got it out fairly widely, but now get this!

From USA Today:

Possible terror ties in American Airlines sabotage case? Prosecutor says yes

The saga of the American Airlines mechanic charged with sabotaging a plane took another disturbing turn Wednesday when a federal judge in Florida denied bail over concerns about the worker’s potential terrorism ties.

Prosecutors cited two factors in pushing for the continued jailing of Abdul-Majeed Maroud Ahmed Alani, a 60-year-old mechanic who was with American since 1988 and previously worked for Alaska Airlines: he has a brother in Iraq who may be involved with the Islamic State extremist group and has made statements about wishing harm on non-Muslims, according to the Miami Herald and the Associated Press.

“I have evidence before me that suggests you could be sympathetic to terrorists,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Chris McAliley said during the bond hearing, the Herald reported.

McAliley called Alani’s alleged tampering with the aircraft “highly reckless and unconscionable,” the newspaper said.

Since Alani’s arrest, the Herald said, investigators with the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force found out Alani lied about taking a trip to Iraq in March to visit his brother and that he told a co-worker at American this summer that his brother was a member of the extremist group and was kidnapped.

Just so you know, most Iraqis living in the US came as refugees through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.

There are hundreds of thousands of them living across America.
