Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a 60 year old American Airlines mechanic has been charged with deliberately sabotaging an aircraft. Alani says he was upset over stalled negotiations between the airline and mechanics union.
American flight 2834 was bound for Nassau from Miami on July 17th, when the cockpit crew received an ADM warning as they increased power for takeoff. The crew aborted the takeoff and the aircraft was taken out of service. Once in the hangar, a loose line going to the air data module was found blocked with a hard foam material. Alani admitted to putting foam into the line, and covering it with super glue to harden it in place.

So, is the frustration over union negotiations supposed to cover his "intent" to keep him from being labeled as a radical Islamic terrorist?
