Federal Authorities Say Southwest Graffiti Not Linked To Any Arabic Groups

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Southwest Airlines has confirmed to KNX 1070 that pictures appearing on the website Gawker are consistent with the markings it has seen on some planes dating back to February 2011.

Source told KNX’s Charles Feldman that some people believed the markings looked like Arabic letters or symbols.

A British newspaper says one university’s department of Arabic studies concluded the markings are not Arabic script.

The markings seen by KNX investigators could be interpreted as crossed “X’s” or as sword-like symbols.

Southwest calls the writings vandalism, but says federal authorities have concluded the markings have no affiliation to any known group or activity.

    The DEA have been stealing drugs from evidence lockup and reselling them. It has become a popular way in the Department of Justice’s DEA to make extra money.
    They also steal from suspects for which they have created fabricated or coerced heresay evidence.
    With some of the DEA suffering under mountains of credit card debt they have started to think outside the box.
