A grand jury has indicted a former American Airlines mechanic who is accused of sabotaging a plane carrying 150 passengers at Miami International Airport.The grand jury charged 60 year old Ahmed Alani with willfully damaging, destroying or disabling an aircraft. If found guilty, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. Although he wasn’t charged with a terror-related crime, prosecutors say Alani saved videos showing Islamic State propaganda, and made statements about wanting Allah to hurt non-Muslims and about a brother in Iraq who has links to ISIS. “You may be very sympathetic to terrorists,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Chris M. McAliley said during a bond hearing Wednesday.Alani allegedly said he wanted the flight to be delayed because he wanted overtime work, but investigators believe he had a more sinister plot. McAliley ordered Alani to be held without bond. Jen and Bill will be speaking with an airline expert later in the show about this and other cases concerning the flying public.
