Sleeping on the job and/or politically correct?

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Jorge L. Rivera Santaella (United States), Jul 13, 2002 at 02:18

Dear Mr. Pipes:

You always "hit the nail on the head" with your sharp and to the point commentaries on controversial issues. I feel that our government investigators are again sleeping in the job, and decided to interpret the signals of the LAX July 04 terrorist attack against Jews in a "politically correct" manner, instead of with the truth of the facts.

The attacker didn't want to just kill many people, but Jews. This is the reason why he chose, instead of other airlines counters with many people, El Al, the symbol of his hate. El Al only had the employees and a few Jews that were going to Israel, and one or two Jewish people dropping their friends.

The FBI agent that investigated the July 04 LAX attack chose to ignore three simple facts: the attacker was an Egyptian Arab, most Arabs hate Jews, and the attacker attacked a Jewish business interest that directly represents the Jewish Israeli government. The FBI investigator at LAX should have stuck to those facts until a device is invented that can read the mind of the dead.
