This latest Los Angeles Times report serves as an official CAIR dog whistle:
A plane was stopped from taking off from Los Angeles International Airport, and two men on board were taken into custody, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
LAPD Lt. John Romero said the men, who appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent, were acting suspiciously.
A law enforcement source said at least one of the men ran into a restroom on the plane and appeared to hide while the New York-bound jet was taxiing on the runway, according to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.
The flight crew confronted the two men and made the decision to stop the plane before it took off, the source said. The men were taken into custody by heavily armed law enforcement officials.
The plane has been taken to a remote area of the airport to be searched by a bomb squad, sources said.
As I mentioned last week, the flying imams’ lawsuit against airport/homeland security officials was cleared for take-off earlier this summer.
Fasten your seatbelts for another.
Update: Officials say there was no threat on the LAX flight.blog comments powered by Disqus
