9/11-Style Threat to Attack DC Broadcast During U.S. Flight Ahead of Trump Rally

Source: Newsweek

The U.S. Intelligence Community is investigating a possible threat to Washington, D.C. broadcast during a commercial flight in apparent response to the killing of a leading Iranian general one year ago, Newsweek has learned.

"We are going to fly a plane into the capital on Wednesday to avenge Soleimani's death," the unidentified voice said as the airliner flew 36,000 feet over sea, according to the report. The flight was said to have continued without incident. The NCTC said it was currently working alongside the FAA, TSA and FBI and that the situation was being monitored.

Current and former officials were skeptical, however, that Iran was planning any sort of attack, and instead were looking toward a potential connection to domestic groups.

One report detailing the incident and seen partially by Newsweek was compiled by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which found that the flight deck of a passenger plane traveling from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to JFK Airport in New York heard a robotic voice over the aircraft's high-frequency radio threatening Washington, D.C. in response to President Donald Trump's killing in Iraq last January of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Quds Force commander Major General Qassem Soleimani.

2. My bet is the caller had a trumpster's voice. He's trying to stop the certification.

They need to haul his ass into jail, preferably in a straight jacket. Iran has a working relationship with Russia right? Maybe the voice had a Russian accent. Pooty-poot probably called in some favors.

5. "We are going to fly a plane into the capital on Wednesday to avenge Soleimani's death,"


That's not even a good fake threat. The syntax is a dead giveaway. ..... And they just happened to choose the capital on certification day? A big steaming pile.

7. Seen first on CNN - it's still shit reporting.

Both reports are virtually the same and equally sloppy.

9. To determine who's behind this, all you have to do is look at who such an attack would benefit.

A: Donald Trump and his Nazi followers

We've all heard of the Reichstag fire.

13. What "9/11-style threat"...?

I assume they meant "threat of a 9/11-style attack," because anyone with a working memory will know that there wasn't any "threat" broadcast before 9/11. In fact, no one even took responsibility after the attacks.

14. On HF radio?

Looks like a proud boi got himself a ham radio in my opinion and is doing some extremely foolish things.

This won't end well for this individual.
