For immediate release
Secretary of Transportation Norman Y. Mineta
has announced the Federal Aviation Administration will allow a limited reopening
of the nation’s commercial airspace system in order to allow flights that were
diverted yesterday to continue to their original destinations.
The Secretary also announced that the FAA is temporarily extending the ground
stop order imposed yesterday while additional security measures are being
“Safety is always of paramount importance, and in these extraordinary times we
intend to be vigilant,” Mineta said. “We remain committed to resuming
commercial flights as soon as possible.
“As the President said last night, these despicable terrorist attacks have
shaken the foundation of our greatest buildings, but have not shaken the
foundation of this great nation,” the Secretary said.
“As America watches the efforts of our heroic emergency responders and rescue
personnel, we keep the victims and their families in our prayers,” he also
Mineta said the FAA would permit flights today only in special limited
circumstances. Flights diverted as a result of yesterday’s order will be
allowed to continue to their original destination under vastly tightened
security guidelines. Only passengers on the original flights will be allowed to
re-board, and only after airports and airlines have implemented strict screening
measures. Airlines will also be allowed to reposition empty aircraft, he said.
Mineta said a variety of stepped-up security measures will be instituted at the
airports once they re-open. These measures include:
- A thorough search and security check of all airplanes and airports before
passengers are allowed to enter and board aircraft.
- We will discontinue curbside check-in at the airport. We would ask that all
passengers go to the ticket counters to check in.
- We will also discontinue off-airport check in. We can no longer allow
passengers to check in for their flights at hotels or other venues. Passengers
must check in at the airports.
- We must reserve boarding areas for passengers only. Only ticketed passengers
will be allowed to proceed past airport screeners to catch their flights.
- Vehicles near airport terminals will be monitored more closely.
“I know all Americans want us to move as quickly and prudently as possible to
return our transportation system to normal,” Mineta said, “and we will as
soon as we can do so safely.”

1) The people who took out the WTC and
the Pentagon were passengers who could have gone through all of the above steps,
so the entire approach is bankrupt from its inception.
2) Because the entire list of new
"stepped up security measures" would not have stopped the single worst
terrorist attack in America's history but is being presented as if it can make
people safer, it is a fraud.
3) If the federal government is so contemptuous
of the intelligence of the American people that they believe they can get away
with this fraud, they should be set straight with questions like these:
A) Why haven't the FAA with support
from other federal officials lifted the ban on pilots' carrying of
firearms? Are you even seriously considering it? If not, why
not? And if not, because none of the above measures would have stopped
the single worst terrorist attack in modern American history, what can you do
to truly make commercial air travel safe -- not just "feel" safe --
without jeopardizing civil liberties?
B) When do We The People get to
offer our input on the decision-making process as to how to insure our safety
where the federal government has not only failed miserably to do so but has at
least partially inspired 24 people to commit suicide while taking out
thousands of our own people in the process?
C) What is your exact justification for
prohibiting a pilot from using a handgun with airplane-safe, frangible
ammunition to save the lives of 20,000 American citizens?
And please do note the top quote from one
of CNN's top stories today:
"The Federal Aviation Administration
ordered several stringent measures Wednesday to make the nation's airports and
skies safer, while allowing limited air traffic to resume late in the day."
CNN is obviously enjoying playing accomplice in
the defrauding of the American people. CNN also reports the following measures
being taken by F.A.A.:
"A total ban on knives of any material.
Previously, knives with blades shorter than four inches had been allowed."
Are they going to ban pencils, too? Any combat
vet will tell you how quickly you can take someone out with a pencil. So does
common sense. Remember that stuff?
Are they going to make everyone take off their
shoes and check under the insoles? An 8th grader could stash a HARD plastic
knife -- capable of puncturing your heart -- in his shoe, if he wanted to.
Is the F.A.A. going to add one more
organization to its list of organizations,
called The Body Cavity Search Agency? If not, these moves are all smokescreens
to make people "feel" safe, not to end all possibility of hijacking
We need to arm the pilots. NOW. And broadcast
the fact to the rotten, lowlife, bloodthirsty scumbag terrorists still here in a
nation of which they are unworthy. Our pilots will blow your hollow brains out
so you can go to Hell where you belong.

above or other questions, perhaps it's time you ask the Feeble-ize
Following are the means for you to do that, then a link to the page where you
learn how to petition the FAA to change their 20,000 Dead Rule.
Surely you can send a question or two by email, right? Any of the above will
do. Or a more direct route, such as: WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO LIFT THE
BAN ON GUNS FOR PILOTS? HOW ABOUT RIGHT NOW! (Getting pilots armed is a
strong starting point, and it's very doable, right now.) email@example.com

NONE of the above "solutions" would have stopped the mass
murderers who just killed our people; innocent people would still have been consumed
in flames, thanks to the criminal-protection scheme now in place.

your next flight not being able to make sure the plane doesn't get used to
murder 20,000 people), call the FAA’s 24 Hour Safety Hotline: (800) 255-1111.
"Registry reserves and assigns all U.S. identification marks (N-Numbers) to
U.S. civil aircraft." Perhaps the fact that they'll not be finding
any identification marks on the downed planes resulted from a lack of
self-defense capability of the passengers and crew?

for Petitions for Exemption or Rulemaking
It's time we create a solid petition through
the FAA's bureaucratic process calling for an end to the specific
"rule" that requires death and destruction at the hands of gutless
sickos who want to go to Hell early -- the "Captain Must Surrender His Ship
to Lowlife Murderers" rule. Somebody get one started and let's see about
submitting a few thousand of them. But let's flood THEIR system, through THEIR
process, so they can't say we didn't "follow procedures."
