      Subject: FW: Atlanta AirTran Flight 297




      To think that Fox News was the only channel that reported this. They
      may be "politically incorrect", but at least they had the balls to report it.

      In my opinion, the Muslims are all getting very brave now. Read Tedd
      Petruna's story below. Can you imagine, our own news media now are so
      politically correct that they are afraid to report that these were all
      Muslims? Unbelievable. Thank God for people like Tedd Petruna.

      Tedd Petruna is a diver at the NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab) facility at
      NASA Houston. Tedd happened to be on the AirTran Flight 297, from
      Atlanta to Houston. Here's his report :

      "One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On
      Tuesday, the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you
      may have seen a blurb about where an Air Tran flight was canceled from
      Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone
      before take-off.

      The story was only on Fox News. That was NOT what really happened.

      I was seated in 1st class coming home. Eleven Muslim men got on the
      plane in full Muslim attire. Two of them sat in 1st class and the rest
      seated themselves throughout the plane, in coach class, all the way to the
      back. As the plane taxied out to the runway, the stewardesses gave the
      safety spiel that we are all so familiar with.

      At that time, one of the men, in 1st class, got on his cell and called
      one of his companions back in coach. He proceeded to talk on the phone
      in Arabic very loudly and very, very aggressively. This activity took
      the 1st stewardess out of action for she repeatedly told the man that cell
      phones were not permitted at that time. He ignored her as if she were not there.

      The man who answered the phone back in the coach section, did the same
      and this took out the 2nd stewardess. Further back in the plane, at the
      same time, two younger Muslims, one in the back on the aisle, and one
      sitting in front of him by the window, began to show footage of a porno
      video they had taped the night before. They were very loud about it.

      The 3rd stewardess informed the two men that they were not to have any
      electronic devices on at this time. One of the men said "shut up infidel dog!"

      The stewardess attempted to take the camcorder and the Muslim began to
      scream in her face in Arabic. At that exact moment, all eleven of the
      men got up and started to walk throughout the cabin. I guess that
      because of the noise, the flight crew must have decided that there was
      something amiss and changed the plane's directions to head back to the terminal.

      The commotion and noise was reaching a feverish pitch, and at this point
      I had had enough! I got up and started towards the back of 1st class,
      when I heard a voice behind me, from another Texan twice my size, say "I got your back."

      Then I grabbed the man who had been on the cell phone by the arm
      and said "You WILL sit down in your seat or you WILL be thrown from this
      plane!" As I "led" him around me to take his seat, the fellow Texan
      grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist and headed him back to
      his seat. I then grabbed the 2nd man and said, "You WILL do the same!"

      He protested loudly, but my adrenaline was flowing now and he was going
      to go also. Just as I escorted him forward, the plane stopped, the doors
      opened and three TSA agents and four police officers entered the cabin.
      Myself and my new Texas friend were told to cease and desist for they
      had the situation under control.

      I was quite happy to oblige actually. There was still some sort of
      commotion in the back, but within moments, all eleven Muslim men were
      escorted off the plane. The TSA agents then had their luggage unloaded.
      We talked about the occurrence and were in disbelief that it had happened.

      Then suddenly, the door opened again and in walked all eleven Muslim men!

      Stone faced, eyes front and robotic, (the only way I can describe
      it) they were reseated. The stewardess from the back had been in tears
      and when she saw the men, she was having NONE of it! Since I was up
      front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal. She told the TSA agents that
      there was NO WAY she was staying on the plane with the Muslim men.

      The agent told her that they had searched the men and were going through
      their luggage with a fine tooth comb. However, nothing had been found
      and that the men were allowed to proceed on to Houston.

      The captain and co-captain came out of the cockpit and told the agent,
      "We and our crew will not fly this plane!" After a word or two, the
      entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. Five minutes later, the cabin door
      opened again and a whole new crew walked on. Again, this was where I had
      had enough! I got up and asked the TSA agent, "What the hell is going on?

      I was told to take my seat. The airlines and TSA were sorry for the
      delay and we would be home shortly. I said "I'm getting off this plane".
      The stewardess sternly told me that she could not allow me to get off.
      Now I'm really mad! I said "I am a grown man who bought this ticket,
      whose time is mine with a family at home and I am going through that
      door, or I'm going through that door with you under my arm, but I AM
      going through that door!"

      And then I heard a voice behind me say "So am I!" Then everyone behind
      us started to get up and say the same thing. Within two minutes, I was
      walking off that plane where I was met by more TSA agents who asked me
      to write a statement about the incident. I had five hours to kill at this point

       waiting for the next flight to Houston, so why the hell not give them my statement.

      Due to the number of people who got off that flight, it was canceled. I
      was supposed to be in Houston at 6 PM, but I finally got there at 12:30 AM.

      If you want to check this, look up the date and then Flight 297 from Atlanta to Houston.

      If this wasn't a terrorism dry run, I don't know what one is. The
      terrorists wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would
      handle it, and how the passengers would handle it. I'm telling this to
      you because I want you to know. The threat IS real. I saw it with my own eyes."

      I suggest you keep this going until this incident reaches the email of all POLITICIANS and the news media!
