The Friends Of Asma Al-Homsi

Dallas police have begun investigating Amsa al-Homsi and Aisha Abdul-Rahman Hamad for allegedly provocative acts at and near Love Field airport in Dallas. Security cameras captured both women, dressed partly in camouflage, acting suspiciously in the airport, apparently deliberately pacing off distances inside the terminal. Later, al-Homsi was seen watching aircraft take off with binoculars near the runway at an air museum, sitting on the hood of her car.
Currently on probation for threatening people with a fake grenade, al-Homsi has other, more significant connections that creates some suspicion for her motives in these incidents. It turns out that one of her close friends was Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary:

One of the subjects of a Dallas police intelligence bulletin, Asma Al-Homsi, says she’s known convicted terrorist Wadih el Hage and his wife for more than two decades.
Mr. el Hage, a former Arlington resident and naturalized U.S. citizen, was the personal secretary of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden before he was sent to prison.But Ms. Al-Homsi said she still considers him and his wife to be close friends. …
Just months before the Sept. 11 attacks, Mr. el Hage was convicted of taking part in a worldwide conspiracy that included the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The bombings killed more than 200 people and injured thousands. Mr. el Hage was given a life sentence.
“I don’t know the circumstances,” Ms. Al-Homsi said, declining to comment on the bombings.

Al-Homsi says that she stands behind her “brother” and his wife “110 percent”. El Hage, known as The Manager, ran an al-Qaeda cell until the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, which killed over 200 people. The US and Kenya raided his Nairobi residence and found information linking him to the AQ network, including people later connected to the 9/11 plot, such as Mamoun Darkazanli. A jury convicted him of perjury and conspiracy connected to the embassy bombings and he currently serves a life sentence at a supermax facility in Florida.
This makes the actions of Homsi more clear, although the motives may be darker than first thought. She claims that she is the victim of “racial profiling”, which indicates that she intends to use her actions to fight the police and security who have her under investigation. With her personal connections to a convicted AQ planner, though, one has to wonder whether that was going to be the final goal of Homsi’s efforts. A self-professed sniper and a suspected explosives expert, she may have been testing the security protocols in the hope of actually launching an attack, and not just to hobble security efforts for others to exploit.
In either case, Homsi needs a lot more scrutiny, as do others who purposefully provoke security responses in or near airports. The Traveling Imams and their attempts to launch the John Doe lawsuits are of a piece with Homsi’s actions in Dallas. The American public must not allow our national security to be compromised because malevolent people like Homsi attempt to embarrass us with bogus accusations of bigotry.

  1. Plainly and simply, it is called “testing the enemy defenses”.
    And what we are going to do about it? Nothing, being afraid of the “harassment” accusations (lawyers and MSM are already salivating).

  2. Without the intense profiling that the Israelis do, an El Al jet would probably fall out of the sky about once a week. Or more accurately, there’d be no El Al. They’d go bankrupt.

  3. One has to wonder if they’re still in custody, and if not; are they keeping a close eye on them?

  4. The objective here is to provoke a private citizen, or a group private citizens, into reporting the behavior to authorities and then to destroy them financially by forcing them to defend themselves from an avalanche of drawn out lawsuits and legal claims. The tactic is well known among the plaintiff’s bar in America, where it has been used for decades to extort both corporations and individuals into signing away their rights and their property to save themselves from financial ruin. Jesse Jackson has made a living out of it for decades.
    The goal is to intimidate and silence the average citizen into keeping silent when faced with blatant terrorist activity, especially on airplanes and in other situations where terror attacks are planned. If the average citizen can be silenced by the fear of lawsuits, then the police can be isolated and neutered in the effort to defend against attacks everywhere.
    And CAIR is at the very heart of coordinating this effort.
