LAX Shooting: Terrorism

• Views: 2,417

It took the FBI almost a year, but they’ve finally admitted the obvious—the July 4 shooting at Los Angeles International Airport was a terrorist attack. (Hat tip: ploome.)

LOS ANGELES - An Egyptian immigrant’s deadly attack on an Israeli airline ticket counter last year has been ruled a terrorist attack related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, an FBI spokesman said Friday.

“Given his political views and the fact that El Al is an Israeli government-owned airline, that met the criteria for a terrorist attack,” said Matthew McLaughlin, a spokesman for the Los Angeles field office of the FBI.

Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, 41, opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport’s El Al ticket counter on July 4 last year, killing two people before being shot dead by an airline security guard.

The Department of Justice had withheld characterizing the shooting while federal agents launched a worldwide probe to determine whether it was a terrorist attack, hate crime or motivated by personal reasons.

In related news, the Bureau of Standards has officially classified water as a “moist, fluid substance.”
