On September 1970, terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked four passenger planes headed for New York City. The Marxist terrorists separated Jewish passengers and took them hostage. The hijackings ushered in the age of modern airline security with x-ray machines and armed sky marshals, and the War on Terror, when President Nixon ordered an attack on the terrorists.
(President Nixon’s order to bomb the terrorist encampments was never carried out due to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Defense Secretary Melvin Laird undermining his decision. “I didn’t have a big argument about it: I just didn’t do it,” Laird recalled. He then told Admiral Thomas Hinman Moorer, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to lie that there was too much cloud cover to bomb the terrorists.)
On another September, 31 years later, Islamic terrorists successfully repeated the same feat, and bypassed the antiquated security measures, to hijack four planes, and kill thousands of Americans.
