    Yeah and we do the Same with the Brits Higgins. Just like we gave them this info on al Nusra and AQAP with ISIL all working on new bombing techniques. Naturally we also let them know about the numbers generalized of Europeans that are fighting on the side of the Terrorists.

    Note we still shared this intel.....despite the Absence at the table with the Europeans in dealing with the Terrorists who created their own State.

    I wouldn't say that MMC European agencies work extensively to identify possible threats in Euope and for the most part have been very successful. UK for example have been very aggressive when dealing with potential threats within our own borders and know from experience that we give over **** loads of intel from our forward bases like Cyrpus etc.

My concern isn't so much plane travel but for the past 2 months our southern border has been wide open. Who's coming through? We don't know - and we're voluntarily shipping these people all over the US from the border.

    Does no one see a problem there? How hard would it be to distribute 10, 20, 50 terrorists into South America - moles, low level, and have them work their way up through into the US? The unintended consequences of allowing such a huge hole in our borders makes taking over a plane, hijacking, underwear bombing... all that seem much too risky and difficult. Send them to South America and simply give them a plan to hit us from the inside after they're routed through - it's not like we're fingerprinting and using facial recognition software on these people and if they're new recruits willing to die for whatever cause affiliated with whatever terrorist group, it's would be rather easy.

    Oh, I am not complaining about any Intel from the Brits.....I think they are up on more of it than most in Europe. Not to mention those SAS boys won't even hesitate to take out any known Terrorists. Which is the way it should be.

    I just hope you guys will be able to Hold Cyprus to keep those feelers out.....and not get pushed out of there.

    Will be interesting. I lived in their in 1999-2002 on a base called AY NIK which you wont find on many maps, at the time the base was a massive operating signals base and my father who was an officer used to meet with high ranking CIA etc monthly to disclose information and I used to see American spy places fly over on a regular basis. However pressure from the Cypriot government and budget cuts have scaled back the bases ( visited not long ago and half the base was a ghost town). However many Cypriots believe that our bases were the only think stopping the Turks march across the whole island in 1972 so I can see us staying their for the time being.

    I know both are dark skinned and have dark hair, but in reality middle easterners and Mexicans don't look anything alike. Middle easterners have olive skin, and Mexicans have more reddish skin like native Americans. Also, Mexicans, many actually being indigenous, can have a fair amount of red in their hair even though it appears to be black. Facial features are different as well. I honestly believe I could tell an Afghani from a Mexican and not get it wrong most of the time.

    Re: Europe's Busiest Airports Boost Screening.....

    Some more on this.


    US-bound airport security tightens amid worry about one bombmaker.....


    Al Qaeda follower Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri has a talent for building hard-to-detect bombs, and now intelligence indicates that he has ties to an Islamist group whose members include Westerners – who don't need visas to travel to the US. Increased security measures for some European and Middle Eastern airports with direct flights to the United States, ordered by the US Wednesday, reflect heightened concerns about the talents of one particular terrorist – and the contacts he may have made with a particular subset of jihadist terrorists.

    The individual the US is worried about is Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, a Saudi-born Al Qaeda follower in Yemen whose particular talent is building hard-to-detect bombs – or perhaps even undetectable bombs.

    The information that has the US ramping up security around US-bound flights is that Mr. Asiri may have established a working relationship with Jabhat al-Nusra, an Al Qaeda affiliate operating in Syria, according to some US counterterrorism officials. Jabhat al-Nusra is known to have welcomed hundreds of Westerners, and in particular Western European Muslims, into its ranks. That’s the subset of Al Qaeda-linked terrorists the US is increasingly worried about.....snip~

    Re: Europe's Busiest Airports Boost Screening.....

    The Brits says travelers should start getting use to the measures this will not be a one time deal.


    The combination of Asiri’s bombs and terrorists with Western European passports boarding flights to the US could be devastating, American counterterrorism officials and experts say.

    I don’t think we should expect this to be a one-off temporary thing,” Britain's deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, told London’s LBC Radio. He suggested that travelers should get used to the new measures.

    What has counterterrorism officials so worried is that enhanced airport security measures may not be keeping up with Al Qaeda’s advancing technical skills – and in particular with Asiri’s quest to develop a virtually undetectable bomb.

    Asiri, who is affiliated with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen, is believed to be behind efforts to build nonmetallic bombs that could be sewn into clothing (such as the underwear bomb) or implanted directly into a suicide bomber’s body. In one particularly chilling example of this technique, Asiri’s 23-year-old brother Abdullah tried in 2009 to assassinate Saudi intelligence chief Prince Muhammad bin Nayef by detonating a bomb that had been inserted into his body. The bomb exploded prematurely, and only Abdullah al-Asiri died in the attack.....snip~

    Re: Europe's Busiest Airports Boost Screening.....

    Update: Now we are being told the reasons why and what is the major concern. There is no doubt we have raised the alert level. Otherwise we would not be threatening to ban flights from the US. If they do not comply with our requests. Looks like there is a serious viable threat.


    Phones, shoes to face scrutiny as airport security tightened: U.S......


    Airlines with direct flights to the United States have been told to tighten screening of mobile phones and shoes in response to intelligence reports of increased threats from al Qaeda-affiliated militant groups, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

    The officials singled out smartphones including iPhones made by Apple Inc and Galaxy phones made by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd for extra security checks on U.S.-bound direct flights from Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

    U.S. security officials said they fear bombmakers from the Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) have figured out how to turn the phones into explosive devices that can avoid detection. They also are concerned that hard-to-detect bombs could be built into shoes, said the officials, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the issue. A U.S. official said that other electronic devices carried by passengers also are likely to receive more intense scrutiny.

    Airlines or airport operators that fail to strengthen security could face bans on flights entering the United States, the officials said.....snip~
