Converts to Islam

Reader comment on item: Further Converts to Terrorism

Submitted by Lynne Schultz (United States), Dec 7, 2005 at 23:28

Reading this article reminded me of the lone man who tried to get into the cockpit of an airliner flying from FL to South America shortly after 9/11. The results of the investigation indicated that he acted alone. When it was reported on the news, pictures of the cockpit and how the doors were secured where shown. I thought at the time, this is a "system test". This man probably has a nice bank account somewhere as payment for what he did.

Also, at that time, I remember thinking and/or reading that the Muslims were in the process of recruiting nationals of countries who did not fit the profile and thus it would be easier for them to pass by security, live and move more freely, and be able to carry out "missions" more effectively. I haven't heard or read of this since then. I am glad that you have brought this to light. Thank you.
