Imagine if the suspicious activity surrounding the hijackers flight training was taken more seriously. 9/11 may have never taken place.

in the context that apratus was used - what else did you think it could be ???????????????????
I wasn't sure. I thought since "Apratus" was capitalized. it was a specific term I wasn't aware of. I wasn't aware "apparatus" was that difficult of a word to spell out. I missed the steno class during the court reporting abbreviation class.

I actually see it as a Combined effort to sway attention away from Real Targets, and not Obama hiring Joksters to push his Political Correctness Agenda…In Either case folks might start Shooting people who look OFF

Believe me, they are aware of the vulnerability of dams, bridges and tunnels. Except there hasn't been an attack on US soil in that regard since 2001, has there?
Not that I am aware of anyway. Theres your sign. A group of men aren't going to ask to rent a boat to "look at dams" if they intend to bump a boat load of dynamite into it and make it fail.
Personally I think they would tend to hide such a thing from the general public, train derailings, plane crashes, bridge collapses, power outages and such, all are accountable as accidents in the main stream, right? Not sleeper cell Jihadis, looking to wage war in America.
When that happens it will be much bigger than anyone can miss, just like 911, just like the Anthrax and Ebola scare, just like second suns.
Edit: It will just happen without any advance notice, instead of "credible threat" type advance warnings. Just like all other attacks against western interests, so far.

It's PC nonsense like this that causes other people not to report incidents. Please stop trying to prevent valid news from going out because it might hurt your politically correct feelings.
Common sense right now dictates that if you live in an area where you don't see a lot of middle eastern men...
After being handed a bag of money, the gunman took a second employee — a 34-year-old Indian American man who goes by the name “Tony” — into a backroom. Once inside, the suspect ordered the clerk to his knees and stuck his gun inside his mouth, the manager told WOOD-TV.
At that point, the manager recalled, the robber said something along the lines of “I shot people like you overseas in the Middle East.”
The assailant also called the clerk a “terrorist” and suggested he was a member of the Islamic State...

You talk about fear mongering, means you believe those are scary news.
I'm not scared at all, maybe pi....off.
Better to be pissed off rather than pissed On.
Unless you have a wooden leg and it's on fire ?
…it is truly like they were suddenly “struck down” and unable to get back up.

This has nothing to do with religion.
But more to do with story's being put out by the MSM. to keep people in fear .
eks ago at the Golden Corral in Osage Beach. A deputy was eating lunch and the wait staff told him about the group of men. Staffers said the men were asking questions about the dam. They wanted to know if they could rent a boat and tour the dam.
The Camden County Sheriff’s Office tells Lake News that they received a tip about a group of “Middle Eastern” men asking about Bagnell Dam. The police department forwarded that report to the FBI and a joint task force on terrorism.
Their is so much more going on in this story .
Profiling , fearmongering , paranoia to name a few .
I'm white and i live here, and if i was sniffing around the Dam or even bringing it up, unlike the Middle Easterners..They would throw my Ass in Jail until they figured out what i was up to...See that's the difference.
