Are terrorists conducting ‘dry-runs’ to prepare for the next 9/11-style attack?

A horrifying internal memo obtained by a local Tampa television affiliate details an incident some pilots believe may have been a “dry-run” for terrorists plotting another 9/11-style attack.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Can we talk about the air marshals,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “There’s a story that again is being just reportedly local news. Nobody is reporting this in the national news. You can find this on TheBlaze. The pilots’ unions are saying there’s another ‘dry-run.’”

TheBlaze reports:

The memo obtained by WTSP-TV, which originated at the union that represents pilots for US Airways, reportedly states that “there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat.”

A Sept. 2 flight from Washington, D.C. to Orlando International is the most recent “dry-run” that the pilots are aware of. According to crewmembers, four “Middle Eastern” men caused a disturbance shortly after take off.

Witnesses say one of the men got up form his seat and ran toward the flight deck door. He then made an unexpected left turn and entered the bathroom for a “considerable length of time.”

Meanwhile, the other three men were reportedly seen roaming the cabin, changing seats and opening overhead bins to make a “scene” and possibly with the intention of distracting flight attendants.

Watch the WTSP-TV news report below:

You may or may not remember that a similar situation occurred back in August 2001 – in the lead up to the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks.

“This happened in August of 2001, and the actor, James Woods, was on the plane with Mohamed Atta, and he’s watching this. And he’s like, ‘This is a dry run.’ And so he calls over the stewardess, and the stewardess goes and gets the pilot and he said, ‘You’ve got a dry run going on, on your plane right now.’ They told the FBI, and the FBI said, ‘Oh, nothing to worry about,’” Glenn explained. “That was a dry run. And James Woods, the actor, was the one who spotted it. Now it’s happening again.”

The TSA told WTSP-TV that the incident did indeed happen but that it doesn’t require any additional investigation, and the Federal Air Marshal is not happy with that response.

“They’re flat-out liars,” a Federal Air Marshal said of the TSA’s stance.

One marshal, who was put under voice disguise to maintain his privacy, said that when it comes to another 9/11-style attack, it’s no longer a matter of if but when.

“We’re waiting for the next 9/11 to happen, because it’s not a question of if. It’s a question of when,” he said.

“And so you know, the last time that these runs [happened], we only found out afterwards,” Glenn said. “The last time these runs we spotted, it was within a month that we had 9/11… The country is in disarray.”

    Here is my opinion on whats happened:

    Dry run (gathering intelligence) is the most probable. Though if they do seize one or more airliners I expect it to be used in combination with a larger number of attacks across the nation.

    Now, what we could be seeing is a series of staged events used to rattle the cage of the nation and cause fear and concern. Look at the TSA response: ‘no investigation needed,’ and then imagine what people must be thinking – what is going on? what is being covered up? why are we being told nothing?

    In the end, I expect the admin has knowledge of a pending attack/s and is deliberately keeping them under wraps to allow them to occur for the sake of advancing Obama’s agenda. They can use the panic generated by any massive attack to seize power and we have a full-scale dictatorship for good.

    The TSA says no more investigation is needed, proof shows otherwise: cover-up for a massive attack is underway from the admin. Obama will have yet more blood on his hands, at the expense of the American people, for the sake of his insane agenda.

    I don’t think this is a false-flag as in a Obama ‘wag-the-dog’ moment. This is becoming more and more of a case the admin knows what is coming, and as many expect, they will exploit it to the fullest.

    Martial law and dictatorship.

    If an attack happens soon, I won’t jump to the conclusion that Obama had anything to do with it.  The 9/11 conspiracy theorists are the scum of the earth.  Obama doesn’t have to attack America.  He just has to sit and wait and watch the terrorists make the attack themselves.  He’s watered down border security to the point that it’s only a matter of time.  He wouldn’t respond with an attack on the Afghanistanesque nation responsible for it either.  That would be too…patriotic and conservative.

    I fly a lot for my business and my family.  I would just as soon trust a pit of venomous vipers as trust the NSA. Our security would be much more certain with the wonderfully sensitive noses of German Shepherds, than with x-ray machines controlled by morons who do invasive pat down searches of old women and young girls. In the past I have always opted for a window seat. From now on I will go for an isle seat where I can be more aware and ready to take action if needed. I pray to Heaven I will never have to, but if I ever do have to, I will fight just as some passengers did on flight 93 on 911. I will not be a passive victim. I am dead serious about this. Who else will join me and be ready to fight against the forces of evil?

    HEY BECK……PAT…….THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE IF YOU WILL TAKE THE 4 MINUTES IT TAKES TO READ THIS AND THEN BROADCAST IT……………BUT YOU WON’T……………YOU’VE BECOME JUST ANOTHER TALKING HEAD, SHOWING THE PROBLEMS AND HAVING NO ANSWERS………….SO SAD.

    Picture this for a moment.
    I have a “comb” that has 74 teeth in it.
    Counting each tooth to represent 1.16 MILLION legal American Citizens, consider the following.
    Using the first two teeth, on the left, their sum total is 2.32 Million American Citizens who make up the entire population of America’s Active Military Forces, ALL police officers, and ALL top echelon Public Officials. (includes the POTUS, Congress, all Governors, State Representatives, Mayors, and Community officials)
    The remaining 72 teeth add up to a total of 83.5 MILLION, Constitutionally LEGAL, American Citizens, who “legally” own guns.
    We the People, are allowing 1/10 th. of 1 tooth, (the politicians) backed by 1- 9/10 teeth (all armed military and police), to THREATEN and BULLY, 72 teeth (American armed citizens) into surrendering their RIGHTS under the Constitution, and they are OPENLY, and ACTIVELY engaged in the OVERTHROW of the United States Constitution, TO OUR FACE!!!
    This PUNY force of arrogant, CITIZENS, actually believe they are the MAJORITY force and power, and are answerable to no one, especially the “private sector” CITIZENS and PATRIOTS that write their paychecks.
    Note this……….EVERY YEAR, the 83.5 MILLION citizens in the Private Sector, become the LARGEST armed military force in the WORLD.
    This happens on OPENING DAY of “hunting season” across America, when 83.5 MILLION HUNTERS step out of their houses, into the public, fully armed, with their guns loaded, and head into the fields and woods for a two week hunting period.
    There are NO REPORTS of mass shootings or homicides or an inordinate amount of “accidents” involving OUR GUNS during that two week period, EVER.  We are Americans.  We have been raised and trained how to use and handle guns SAFELY from our youth to old age.  WE ARE TRUSTWORTHY to keep and bear arms, as our Founding Fathers knew.
    Are we going to let a MEASELY 1/10th of 1 tooth, (the politicians) to continue to dismantle the United States Constitution at EVERY LEVEL of government, when they have SWORN an Oath to “protect and defend” the very constitution they are actively engaged in destroying???
    OR…are WE THE PEOPLE going to strap on our LEGALLY owned guns, and armed with the BILL OF RIGHTS,( which have NEVER been repealed), MARCH down to our LOCAL government and City Counsel meetings, and DEMAND of our ELECTED officials, to STAND UP, one by one, and openly declare their own PERSONAL position on the American Citizens RIGHT to keep and bear arms, and to wear them in ALL PUBLIC VENUES, and to state, YES or NO, on whether or not ANY of the first  10 amendments to the constitution have been repealed.
    If the INDIVIDUAL answers in FULL SUPPORT of the Constitution, he/she retains their job.
    If the INDIVIDUAL answers AGAINST the Constitution and in favor of the continued Usurpation and Overthrow of our constitution through LAWS and ORDINANCES depriving the CITIZENS their constitutional RIGHTS, and ordering the local police forces to ENFORCE these laws, then that person is to be placed under CITIZENS ARREST for PERJURY, for LYING under their oath, stripped of his/her position of public office, and punished under the laws of perjury of the State, and an interim supporter of the Constitution is to be temporarily installed until new elections can be held to fill the seat.
    All Police officers are to be questioned in the same manner.
    We can STOP THIS MADNESS without having to fire a single SHOT, if WE THE PEOPLE, will simply put on our guns, and NEVER take them off again, and go to our town meetings, DEMANDING IMMEDIATE CHANGE, and the INSTANT REPEAL of all LOCAL laws contrary to the Constitution, and declaring such laws as UN-LAWFUL ORDERS only, and NO PERSON, public or private, is required to obey or follow an unlawful order.
    CLAIM YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGAIN, PATRIOTS and the State and Federal officials HAVE NO POWER to continue overthrowing us.
    THEN march on your State Capitals, demanding the same.  KICKING OUT OF OFFICE, immediately, those who have perjured themselves.   THEN we march on Washington D.C. and take back the Capitol.
    It’s a PIECE OF CAKE, patriots, and the PUNY 2 teeth are absolutely CRAZY if they decide they want to start shooting at us.
    Its time for WE THE PEOPLE to put a stop to all of this NONSENSE, and we can do it.
    NO LATER than Opening Day of hunting season, 2013, America………..PUT YOUR GUNS ON, and NEVER TAKE THEM OFF AGAIN.
    We can have our nation BACK TO IT’S ROOTS in less than 60 days, and ALL of OUR actions, are Constitutionally LEGAL .
    It’s once again time that the public officials, and police, FEAR the CITIZENS instead of the citizens fearing the politicians and police.
    An armed American citizenry is a FREE American citizenry.
    What say you……America??

    Listen to Glenn Beck’s claims that James Woods said, “You’ve got a dry run here.” That is so typical of Beck to blatantly lie about history. Woods was on that flight a few weeks before 9/11, and he did talk to an airline attendant about the behavior of some passengers, who turned out to be terrorists. But, OF COURSE, Woods did not presciently claim that they were engaged on a dry run for a plane hijacking.

    Beck is a fucking asshole.

    Of course.  We have not been safe since he has been in office.  Look at all the attacks here and abroad.  He probably has a very big roll in everything that will happen.  Yes, I can see him taking over and putting our country under lock down.  Just wait it is coming.  He has three more years and he will have total control of our Nation if he has his way.  Come quickly Lord Jesus!!!

    … Osama bin Laden was the most historically notable emir, or commander …  * Ayman al-Zawahiri *, al-Qaeda’s Deputy Operations Chief prior to bin Laden’s death, assumed the role of commander, according to an announcement by al-Qaeda on June 16, 2011. He replaced Saif al-Adel, who had served as interim commander.[45] …

    … “Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri[2] (Arabic: أيمن محمد ربيع الظواهري‎  ʾAyman Muḥammad Rabīʿ aẓ-Ẓawāhirī, born June 19, 1951) is an Egyptian physician,[3] Islamic theologian and current leader of the militant Islamist organization al-Qaeda.[4] Ayman al-Zawahiri is a former member of Islamist organizations which have both orchestrated and carried out multiple attacks on the continents of North America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.” …

    … “former membership” is to include the Muslim Brotherhood and served time in prison for his role in the assassination of Anwar Sudat …

    … “By the age of 14, al-Zawahiri had joined the Muslim Brotherhood. The following year the Egyptian government executed Qutb for conspiracy, and al-Zawahiri, along with four other secondary school students, helped form an “underground cell devoted to overthrowing the government and establishing an Islamist state.” It was at this early age that al-Zawahiri developed a mission in life, “to put Qutb’s vision into action.”[20] His cell eventually merged with others to form al-Jihad or *Egyptian Islamic Jihad.*[14]” …

    … The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Ismailia, Egypt by Hassan al-Banna in March 1928 as an Islamist religious, political, and social movement.[1][2] The group spread to other Muslim countries but has its largest, or one of its largest, organizations in Egypt, where for many years it has been the largest, best-organized, and most disciplined political opposition force,[3][4][5] despite a succession of government crackdowns in 1948, 1954, 1965 after plots, … of assassination and overthrow were uncovered…

    … Following the 2011 Revolution the group was legalized,[5] and in April 2011 it launched a civic political party called the Freedom and Justice Party (Egypt) to contest elections …

    Al-Qaeda has the following direct affiliates:

    The Egyptian Islamic Jihad (Arabic: الجهاد الإسلامي المصري‎) (EIJ) formerly called simply Islamic Jihad (الجهاد الإسلامي and Liberation Army for Holy Sites[1]) originally referred to as “al-Jihad,” and then “the Jihad Group”, or “the Jihad Organization”,[2] is an Egyptian Islamist group active since the late 1970s.
