French government agents working out of Brazil have confirmed that 2 of the passengers who died on the crashed Air France flight 447 jet were linked to Islamic terrorist groups.
Immediately after it was confirmed that the Air France jet crashed, agents with France’s DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), the French equivalent of the CIA, were sent to Brazil. The agents studied the passenger manifest for the downed aircraft and discovered the names of two of the passengers also appeared on highly classified agency documents that listed the names of radical Muslims believed to be a threat to the French Republic.
The link is said to be “highly Significant” because France has recieved a number of terrorist threats from Islamic groups over the past months since sending troops to Afghanistan. French authorities are very concerned about ‘Airborn Attacks,’ although they were not specific about the nature of the threats received.
All evidence in the crash of Air France flight 447 so far has pointed to a massive equipment failure aboard the plane, but until further investigation is done, authorities have not ruled out a possible terrorist attack.
However, these new developments are certainly making terrorism look like more of a possibility.
