SOMETHING's going on here . . . YOU be the judge . . .

. . . the Sean Linnane email box has been going hog-wild all day . . . multiple sources have brought this issue to my attention:

A chilling first-person account of the real reason Airtran Flight 297’s Atlanta-Houston leg, canceled last Tuesday:

Monday, November 30, 2009

This has been a subject of discussion amongst a few of us for a couple of weeks. The person's account below is known to three of our group, and he is NOT a whiner or complainer...

He's an ex-Navy diver, working for a government organization; he has traveled extensively world-wide. This is his account of what happened on Flight 297 on the taxiway and at the gate in Atlanta . . .

One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox.

This was NOT what happened.

I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.

The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back aisle, and one in front of him, window, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before, and were very loud about it. Now . . . they are only permitted to do this prior to Jihad. If a Muslim man goes into a strip club, he has to view the woman via mirror with his back to her. (don’t ask me . . . I don’t make the rules, but I’ve studied).

The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices on at this time. To which one of the men said "Shut up infidel dog!" She went to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all 11 of them got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan twice my size say "I got your back." I grabbed the man who had been on the phone by the arm and said "You WILL go sit down or you WILL be thrown from this plane!"

As I 'led' him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed out with him. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the same!" He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he was going to go. As I escorted him forward the plane doors open and 3 TSA agents and 4 police officers entered. Me and my new Texan friend were told to cease and desist for they had this under control. I was happy to oblige actually. There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all 11 were escorted off the plane. They then unloaded their luggage.

We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happen, when suddenly, the door open again and on walked all 11!! Stone faced, eyes front and robotic (the only way I can describe it). The stewardess from the back had been in tears and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agent there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston. The captain and co-captain came out and told the agent "We and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened again and a whole new crew walked on.

Again . . . this is where I had had enough!!! I got up and asked "What the hell is going on!?!?" I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said "I’m getting off this plane". The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off. (now I’m mad!) I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket, who’s time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that door, or I’m going through that door with you under my arm!! But I am going through that door!!" And I heard a voice behind me say "So am I".

Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane where I was met with more agents who asked me to write a statement. I had 5 hours to kill at this point so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was canceled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.

Look up the date. Flight 297 Atlanta to Houston.

If this wasn’t a dry run, I don’t know what one is. They wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.

I’m telling this to you because I want you to know . . .

The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes . . .


Another first-person account from Dr. Keith A. Robinson, a chaplain from Houston, is equally chilling:

This incredible incident is being squashed. (You may recall a similar test run occurred on a flight some eighteen months ago.) It’s the kind of bureaucratic cover up that led to the Muslim’s slaughter of innocent soldiers at Fort Hood.

An internet search shows that the squashing is being effective.

The Atlanta J-C simply repeats the official line.

The real story needs to get out . . . .

OK Heroes here's the STORMBRINGER take on this latest madness . . .

If this is a "Terrorist Dry Run" (and I don't preclude anything these days) it makes no sense from an operational point of view.

Consider: the LAST thing a terrorist outfit going into the final operational stage wants to do is DRAW ATTENTION to themselves. They have a mission to accomplish, and will conduct themselves with an intensity & focus like a professional military organization.

To draw attention to themselves like this would be counter-productive, as events demonstrated.

My instincts tell me that these Arabs were idiots, lacking any sense of situational awareness . . .

. . . that is not to say that the way Diver Dan and the Texan conducted themselves was in any way incorrect or wrong - I applaud their rising to the situation, as I maintain that we are STILL under attack, as much as we were in the days and months leading to Sept. 11th, 2001 - and we must remain ever vigilant.

What I REALLY want to know is how come nothing like this ever happens when me & my brother SKULLHEAD are hanging out ? ? ?

We would have taken pleasure hanging some Arabs by their scrawny necks out the open hatch of a taxiing airplane over the runway at Hartsfield International Airport


  1. The way it reads to me, from what's been said by those who witnessed it, is as a pre assault softening up of the target.

    Force a situation where the air carrier is made to reapply "sensitivity" pressure to make future ops less likely to be intercepted.

    This enemy has shown itself to be rather adept at playing our better natures against our own survival needs before.

  2. Sounds like the real deal. I hope someone from Homeland Security or TSA is looking into this & instatuting security measures that will stop these dry runs so they will know we're onto their games.

  3. Sorry, FLYNAVY, but Homeland Security and the TSA have their hands tied and are not allowed to do anything until AFTER the fact, kinda like regular cops.
    They are there to make reports, not prevent incidents

  4. What makes you think this wasn't the opening moments of the real thing?

  5. I know this is monday morning quarterbacking but it is a dang shame that a half dozen people didn't power up their phones and video the proceedings then post it on the net.

    Trouble is, WE tend to obey the law, policies and procedures. Anyway, it is something to think about if it happens again.

    This sounds a lot like the previous imam debacle where the imams were doing the whole butt in the air prayer thing in the airport and muttering anti american sentiments. As I recall, they ended up suing the airline.

    It sounds like the same thing to me. Create a stir, have your feelings hurt, then sue so that when they do want to go for 20 or 30 simultaneous planes their job will be a lot easier.

  6. This seems to me like trolling for law suits.

    One reason this may have been squashed in the media is to keep them from suing ala the "flying Imams"

  7. Wow! Update on who these people are? Glad I don't fly much. Very disturbing indeed. Something IS going on.

  8. Sounds like a practice run to see how much publicity it would generate.

  9. Take it from a guy that has worked aviation all my civilian life and dealt first hand with the TSA. Nothing will happen until its to late. The TSA is more worried about bottles of shampoo than recognizing a real threat. This has dry run written all over it. One, to see what they can get away with, two, to see crew reaction and procedures and three, to open the doors for lawsuits so the bleeding heart liberals and ACLU steps in to champion their "cause" for a lawsuit. Its time for all Americans and I mean true Americans regardless of race and ethnicity to stand up and realize we are at war with a silent enemy. An enemy lurking and preying on the weak and the compassionate to use the civil liberties cry in their favor to open the door for another attack. I'm sure that all of my brothers and sisters viewing this and reading this agree that its time to stand up and fight for what is right. Our FREEDOM and our SAFETY!

  10. I think it was a dry run to see what they can get away with. At the same time it could force the TSA or Homeland security to lighten up restrictions based off any potencial lawsuit that the coward terrorsts could drum up.

  11. WOW - well said WestieP ! ! !

    ". . . we are at war with a silent enemy. An enemy lurking and preying on the weak and the compassionate . . ."

    This is right out of the STORMBRINGER lexicon!

    Request permission to use this verbiage in a future post?


  12. Great post S.L. I was on a flight from Ohio to Texas last month. This crap is getting serioius. I just linked your post on

  13. Blitz,

    Not all "yankees" as you refer to us are tree hugging liberals. Take your head out of the sand for a moment and know that there are many of us in the Midwest and in the NE that would do the same thing. They'd surely get my size 14 up their ass real quick. My family lives near Charleston, SC and I saw quite a few liberals down there with their Obamination stickers on their cars. Unfortunately the disease of stupidity/prgressivism is rampant across the entire country. Stay safe out there.

  14. You're all precluding the possibility that what occurred was an operation. Perhaps the purpose of this event was to psychological warfare against both passengers of the flight; the security service of the airline; and the federal law enforcement authorities.

  15. But 2 were looking directly at porno. If they were not intending to die shortly, why would they voluntarily do that without a mirror?

  16. As much as I love reading this website, I have to point out that the accuracy of this story is very unclear, and disputed by information and other accounts found online. Yes, this story is very frightening and shocking, but don't trust everything you read on the internet! People tend to embellish their story to support a viewpoint. Do yourself a favor and get information from both sides of the debate before you make a judgement.

  17. Hero wannabe maybe, who knows the motive for the embeleshment. Read the detailed response from AirTran.

  18. The original account appears to be false. See

    I could not quickly find into on the Houston Regional Community Chaplains Corps

  19. Edit: I could not find INFO on the Houston....


  20. Did you hear the one about the Boy who cried Wolf?

    The wolf is spooking the boy so nobody will believe him.

    They want you to look like you are over reacting. So when it really happens, you won't.

  21. I think this story has been thoroughly been debunked, less CAIR.

    the source of this hoax would be interesting to look at.
    It could be as simple as a lonely person looking for attention, or a political plant to catch security "nuts" believing in a total lie.

    One thing that scares me is this:
    of all the people that have commented on other sights about it being debunked, no one that I saw mentioned how outragious the story is... at least the behavior of the jihadists'.

    clearly people thik this scenario is at least plausable.

  22. It goes both ways.

    Certainly this is a plausible scenario, and we all need to be vigilant American citizens. Legacy media outlets seem to have forgotten Dec. 7th already- God help us if we forget Sept. 11th.

    We also need to be intelligent internet consumers, researching the content and facts of the story before passing judgement. Just because a trusted friend sent you the story in an email doesn't mean it's true.

  23. You won't know if this is real or not until we have another 9/11......and it is coming......we have let our guard down, & because most people are scared to speak up or do anything, & most let the liberals run this country, we are in danger more & more of getting attacked. Regardless of what the liberals say, we need to get prepared. We need to quit searching 80 yr old men & women in wheelchairs, 8 yr old boys,old women who can barely walk,& start searching those that are on the NO FLY list, the suspects that COULD be dangerous........Profiling? you bet.....I haven't heard of one time that an old man or women in a wheelchair, or an 8 yr old boy, or anyone resembling them has blown up a plane.......who have they been? Wake up ......we will be hit again, & those that don't believe we have terrorists right here in the US waiting & plotting against us are just plain idiots.
