Did ISA grad plan to execute 9/11-style attack?

Too important to be confined to Digg:

Raed Abdul-Rahman Alsaif

Ryan Mauro notes in his article Foiling the Next 9/11 and Not Even Knowing It for Pajamas Media that on June 4, the same day ISA alum Raed Abdul-Rahman Alsaif was arrested for concealing a knife:

... two other individuals, Roshid Milledge and Damien Young, were arrested in Philadelphia after sneaking a handgun onto a flight. The airline? U.S. Airways. The destination? Phoenix. The departing time? About 35 minutes from the flight Alsaif attempted to board, using the same airliner and with the same destination.

While the FBI initially denied any connection between the events, it later retracted and said that they were looking into connections.

But then, this is the same FBI that collaborated with CAIR for outreach to the Muslim community. The FBI broke ties with CAIR, only to replace CAIR with the equally suspect Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

I'm not much on conspiracy theories. But I do think that we dodged a bullet with this one.

Is America as a whole paying attention? No. Or should it say NOT YET.
