    Video shows 9/11 hijackers' security check

    Nawaf and his brother, each wearing slacks and Oxford shirts, were directed to a nearby counter, where they appeared to examine their tickets while another screener checked Nawaf's carryon bag with an explosive trace detector. Each was cleared to board Flight 77.

    The Associated Press obtained the video from the Motley Rice law firm, which is representing some survivors' families who are suing the airlines and security industry over their actions in the Sept. 11 attacks.

    "Even after setting off these alarms, the airlines and security screeners failed to examine the hijackers' baggage, as required by federal regulations and industry mandated standards, or discover the weapons they would use in their attack," lawyer Ron Motley said.

    Re: 9 Muslim Passengers Removed From Jet

    Does it matter what they were wearing?

    Let's be serious here folks, you hop on a flight, a bunch of Muslims start making comments that make you REALLY uncomfortable, how many here would do nothing so as not to "offend" and how many would raise the alarm.

    I'd rather the alarm raised to nothing, then silence out of fear of violating PC Protocol and people dying.

    It's rather easy to go on knowing you were "wrong" about some people, or in their case being wrongly accused then it is to recover from death.

    Living | Understanding turbans: Don't link them to terrorism | Seattle Times Newspaper

    The irony of the American focus on turbans in the wake of the terrorist attacks is that, at least in this country, turbans are a very poor predictor of a person's involvement in terrorist violence.

    "Needless to say,"
    said Ellis Goldberg, head of the Middle East studies center at the UW, "none of [the hijackers] was wearing any type of turban."
    Faculty Opinion

    Although none of the 19 hijackers wore turbans, and all were smooth-shaven, close-cropped, bareheaded men in Western clothes, the turban quickly substituted for the veil as the central metaphor for the Islamic world and became associated with terrorism.

    Although many Americans showed great restraint and admirable tolerance, some lost it. John Cooksey, the congressman from Louisiana, called the turban "a diaper on the head." In a radio show, he announced that should he encounter a diaper-headed guy on a plane, he would need to have him "pulled over."
    Demystifying turbans, much of America doesn't understand their meanings By Lisa Fernandez - San Jose Mercury News

    None of the 19 Muslim hijackers wore a turban. Muslims aren't required by Islam to wear turbans -- if they

    do, it's out of personal choice. The prophet Muhammad in his teachings recommends only that Muslim men cover their heads while praying.

    Thank you for answering the question. You didn't have to be a total dick about doing it.

    That settles the question for the 9-11 hijackers. As for other American hijackings by muslim terrorists, can you show the same for the hijackers of TWA Flight 847, PanAm flight 103?

    Yes he did. He did because you were postulating a LIE! Vicious evil LIE! You might hurt the feelings of a Muslim reading these forums... so his behavior is both just and right!

    Oh yes, that war that we are waging globally

    If all 1.2 billion Muslims were terrorists then believe me, the world would be very different to how it is now.

    Those huge letters weren't just for you. They are for EVERYONE who thinks that if the turban fits you're a terrorist. The Airline ****ed up. Saying that they were justified because the family was dressed like the Muslims from 9/11 is Bs. Nobody would have seen 9/11 coming if the thing they were looking out for was muslim clothing like 'turbans'. Using it to justify 'random' searches and unwarranted fears of anything Muslims is bs if that is the reason they cite. Not saying thats what you did. That's just what it seems like when people support taking Muslims off planes because of how they look.
