Airport watcher friend of 1998 embassy bomber

In 2001, Wadih el Hage was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 1998 bombings of two American embassies in Africa and now Asma Al-Homsi, who was seen “conducting what appeared to be surveillance and acting suspiciously at Dallas Love Field” says she remains his friend and supporter:

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. “I still support my brother and sister 110 percent,” Ms. Al-Homsi of Arlington said in an interview Friday.

Ms. Al-Homsi and her friend, Aisha Abdul-Rahman Hamad, 50, of Irving were the subject of a March 5 Dallas police intelligence bulletin after the two women, both dressed in camouflage pants under their Muslim robes and scarves, were seen conducting what appeared to be surveillance and acting suspiciously at Dallas Love Field. Police officials have said they have no direct evidence that the women have ties to terrorism.

Ms. Al-Homsi is on probation in connection with a December 2005 road rage incident involving a fake grenade she waved at a motorist. In an earlier interview, Ms. Al-Homsi bragged about being a trained sniper but denied having any ties to terrorism and said she wasn’t a “dangerous individual.” She is an accountant who has dual Syrian-U.S. citizenship.

Our enemies in the the War on Terror are here on America’s battlefield waiting to strike. While I do not accuse Asma Al-Homsi of being one of them, her behaviors, public statements, and the company she keeps cannot be ignored.
