Yeah, that's not scary at all. Yikes.

Those transponders will make those into expensive drone bait.

Are there any media outlets that AREN'T right wing websites verifying this? Because when you Google "libyan airlines missing" the sources are the Washington Times, WND, Hot Air, Newsmax, Freeperville, etc.

Janes was claiming weeks ago that "Algerian reports of jihadist attack threat using commercial aircraft stolen from Libya unlikely to be credible."

FTA: A Moroccan press report indicated on 13 August that Morocco's air force was on high alert following the theft of several aircraft in Libya that could be used within the region for jihadist attacks in the style of the September 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

There have been various reports in Tunisian and Algerian press in recent weeks regarding this same risk. On 6 August, Algerian news site al-Fajr claimed 11 aircraft had been taken from Tripoli International Airport during recent fighting between militias there.

However, a spokesman for Libya's transport ministry has said that no aircraft are missing.

---

They go on to explain that it is unlikely that the militias controlling these airports would allow flights by jihadists, and also would not want the shiatstorm that would fall on them if a 9/11-style attack was launched from their territory. They're actually more concerned that these reports will lead to the accidental shoot-down of an airliner by paranoid neighboring countries.

Blaze rehash (including five mentions of 9/11 and two of Benghazi) of a Free Beacon article (six 9/11s and five Benghazis) about an Al Jazeera report from two weeks ago.

Also included are several ads from scam artists selling gold bullion.

Nothing about it on Fox News or Fox Nation yet.  If Fox isn't willing to gamble its only shred of journalistic integrity on such a perfect fear-mongering story, it must be bullshiat.

Not one legitimate media source is running this story. Janes.com is claiming it's most likely BS.

Libyan jetliners, don't carry me too far away.
 
2014-09-03 04:31:22 AM  
OH of COURSE.

Pretty hard to turn planes stripped for scrap metal into "terrorist" tools, but what do I know?

Now that's scary!

Frankly; I call shenanigans on any website that has to throw THAT big an ad at the front of one click to their articles.

At least we got rid of Momo khadaffi so Libyan Dawn could freedom fight there.

I awoke this morning and had a nice big glass of milk. Sat down, started reading Fark. Clicked a link. Meh. Look at comments, FEEL THE CRAZY.

"Thus begs the question, Why did airlines leave these birds behind when they left, and why did this airport not get reduced to a smoking ash-heap by 500,000 pounds of high explosives before anything could be fueled up and airborne.
There is a plan afoot here, and I believe that White-House is fully aware of what it is. Obama said we are no longer a Christian Nation, and he believe that. He has allowed Christians to be slaughtered around the globe, while helping Islam rise before our eyes. He has no plan to deal with any of this because he SUPPORTS IT.
Beck said that Hillary will win in 2016, and in 2016, if not sooner, Obama will anoint himself King of the Global Caliphate.
WWIII is upon is. It is time to stand with each other, regardless of backround, color, wealth or creed, as brothers. Hell is coming soon to a back yard near you. Be prepared to stand and check six."

Then I went outside and had a smoke and watched the world burn.

Fact distorting fear-mongering in my Blaze? What are the odds?

/CNN jab in the headline was funny as well.

'87 Airbus A320 for sale.  Body rough, runs good, needs new lateral stabilizer assembly.  Will trade for yellowcake.  $1800 obo.  Call after 6 PM ask for Akhmed.  No dealers, THIS MEANS YOU MUSTAFA.

They're in the shop, getting knee defenders installed.

Why do they need so many planes when there's only one tower at the old World Trade Center site?

 Obama you preening fool ,dare to challenge the house of Clinton.

 I will soon be the first woman to lead Cobra the American people.

What's the conversion factor between 9/11s and Benghazis?
 
2014-09-03 07:10:03 AM  
They'd need to make a 10-12 hour flight over a bunch of different countries to get here. I'm sure that will work out for them just fine.

Liquify the ebola dead, chem-trail spray it and it's on. CDC stated ebola IS aerosol transmitted.

I'd say it's very truthy, though. So let's carry on with our paranoia.

They need that many to carry away all the copies of Barry's Kenyan birth certificate they were keeping at Benghazi.  Study it out.

Assuming all the aircraft are in similar condition...

Unlikely as this story is, it only takes one to cause mayhem and there's plenty of stuff to blow up locally. For a terrorist not every target needs to be of strategic value.
Its worth turning flying a camera over and seeing if we can't account for them.

Why would there be a firefight on the runway?  Big open area with few places to hide.  The plane might have been hit by a mortar or something but those shell casings seem like they could have been planted for a good photo-op.

Sorry, Tom Clancy said that Ebola was airborne transmitted.  Not the CDC.  Minor error in resources there, but nicely done!

This.

It's not like we won't see them coming, what with radar, flight plans, and transponders.

Radar Operator: That bird isn't on my flight plan. Unknown plane identify please
Muhammad M. Muhammed: Uh, this is Libyan flight 666. We are, uh, bringing a bunch of orphans and puppies to New York.
Radar Operator: Yeah OK. *ring* Hello Libyan airlines? Yeah, do you have a puppy plane inbound to New York? No? Thanks.
Radar Operator: *ring* Hello Airforce? Yeah, I got something for you to blow up.
Air Force: No shiat? Hell yes. We'll be there in 10 minutes.
Radar Operator: Hey Libyan flight 666, welcome to American airspace. We have set up a fireworks show to welcome you.
Muhammad M. Muhammed: Finally. Things are going my way. All praise to All- What the hell is that?
*boom*

/The M. stands for Muhammed.

from another article:

The threat warning comes as dramatic video reveals the final moments of a Libyan combat jet. The aircraft plunged into the ground less than a kilometre from the country's parliament during a fly-past intended to honour the pilot of another fighter jet that died in a crash a week ago.

*yawn*

Zroop: It looks like there have been at least 2 stolen. TFA may have just added another 9 because fear.
