Missing Libyan Jetliners Could Be Used In Suicide Attacks

Islamist militias are currently battling over which group will take over Libya. They've already seized control of the capital, Tripoli, and they have control over the international airport there.  Including, allegedly, around 12 commercial jetliners.  Now western counter-terrorism folk are worried about what might happen when terrorists have in their possession  a dozen planes, especially with 9/11 fast approaching.

Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.
“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”
Nothing has officially been confirmed.
