RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Did you see this story? Miami Herald, American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging jet may have terrorist ties. Did you see this? The first thing you think of was Rush told us this last week when the story -- so who is the mechanic? It's Mustafa Abu Sahib Skyhook, whatever. And everybody says, "oh he's just a disgruntled employee upset over union." Are you kidding me? The guy's sabotaging the navigation system and you don't even think that he might have ties to terrorism? Well they do now, an American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging a navigation system on flight with 150 people aboard at Miami International was denied bond by a federal judge yesterday after prosecutors suggested he may have links to a Middle Eastern terror organization. Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani. What was their first clue?
You know, this is the kind of stuff that's gonna get us killed. Looking it right in the face and using political correctness to deny what we all have to better be sensitive to and be aware of. So we get a news story that Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani is disgruntled over union rules or some such thing and was toying around with the navigation system of an American Airlines jet, and now some weeks later, the authorities are thinking, "you know what? He may have ties to Middle East terrorism." Really? Now, I know what some of you are -- "Rush, they have to do it this way, they have to appear to be open-minded and nonjudgmental, have to be looking like they are not bigoted or prejudiced. They knew from the get go Rush, they just couldn't say." That's political correctness. "But Rush its profiling. We can't profile." We better start. I mean there's some things that are just common sense here.
