INCIDENT AT LAGUARDIA


www.whatreallyhappened.com

"- White powder and gas mask are found in luggage, but Israeli woman not detained and allowed to board plane to Texas.
- The Texas FBI won't return calls asking if the woman has actually been interviewed.
- The powder tests positive for anthrax, then is declared to be harmless.
- But ten people become sick and are treated, plus the screeners (one of whom gets a rash on his hands) are decontaminated.
- Why do I get the feeling that a staged terror attack to blame on Iraq just fell apart?"

3/22/03 LaGuardia Airport evacuated

http://www.capitalnews9.com/content/top_stories/Default.asp?ArID=19298&

"The central terminal of LaGuardia Airport was evacuated. It happened Friday when a gas mask and white powder were found in an Israeli woman's bag. She was traveling from Israel to Texas. The first test came up positive for anthrax, but a second test proved negative."

3/22/03 LaGuardia Powder Incident

http://www.wstm.com/Global/story.asp?S=1192253

This seems to be the same story which was initially reported, then removed, on CNN. This version says the powder was harmless, but fails to say why the screeners still had to be decontaminated. Note that in this version of the story, the powder was found in a checked bag and the woman was on the plane before she could be questioned.

3/22/03 In this story, the powder was found on the Israeli woman's handbag, not the checked luggage

http://www.sabcnews.com/world/north_america/0,1009,55516,00.html

So how did she escape arrest and get on the plane to Texas?

3/22/03 Another report on the "harmless" powder that made people ill.

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/nation/20030321-1058-attack-laguardia.html

Again the report that the powder was found in the woman's handbag, so why wasn't the woman detained?

Powder and gasmask found in luggage but Israeli woman not detained, allowed to board plane to Texas. The Texas FBI won't return calls asking if the woman has actually been interviewed. The powder tests positive for anthrax, then is declared to be harmless, but ten people become sick and are treated, plus the screeners (one of whom gets a rash on his hands) are decontaminated. Why do I get the feeling that a staged terror attack to blame on Iraq just fell apart?

More to the point, how many other Israelis are now inside the US with 9 inch cylinders of "harmless powder" and gas masks?

WHATREALLYHAPPENED.COM EDITOR'S NOTE: * The local copies of these articles have been saved because of the lesson learned from Carl Cameron's news story of the Israeli Spy Ring and the existance of evidence, classified by the US Government, linking the arrested spies to 9-11. That story was yanked from the Fox News servers almost immediately. So, while the original URLs are linked above, there are also local copies to deter changes and erasures.
