Nolan said specifications provided to contractors are drawn up according to Federal Aviation Administration guidelines. He emphasized they do not contain any sensitive information.

Either way, do you want to be doing business with a contactor who handles your company's information in such indifference?

No Comment... There is NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING you or I or the Police, FBI, DHS, whatever, can do to prevent someone, who is willing to sacrifice their won life, from taking the life of another. Terrorism is not NEW, what is new is the hysteria created to achieve an agenda by you thankful Gov't. Local, State and Federal Gov't have achieved SO MUCH since 9-11. The have gotten what they could have NEVER hoped for otherwise. Unrestricted ability to commit surveillance upon it's citizens. Furthermore, they have created a mindset for the citizenship to commit the same upon their neighbors. Akin to the McCarthyism era whereas if you weren't a Commie, you better tell us who is and if you aren't doing nothing wrong what have you to worry about what we are doing... It's old and has become too transparent for those with their eyes wide OPEN... Blueprints in the trash... OMG call out the National Guard...

I am so relieved. I read the article twice before I realized that it didn't say that some one lost their diaphragm at the airport. What the world doesn't need is another unplanned offspring! Whew! I can sleep good tonight. Thanks Newsday!

its nice to know that if any of you people with negative comments saw something suspicious you wouldnt do anything about it...how many times do we see something horrible reported only to find out later on that more than one person knew about the circumstances in advance...the blueprints should have been shredded, not sticking out of a garbage can in front of a strip mall...as for the people saying theyre sick of hearing about terrorists, this our reality now, im sorry that you cant accept it and choose to live in your little bubbles...ignorant "it will never happen to us" attitudes only make it easier to be attacked

I am shocked by many of the comments on here. Not that long ago, terrorists flew planes into the Pentagon, World Trade Center and hijacked a plane that went down in PA.
These men studied our processes, they learned to fly planes, etc. Does it not seem like the logical thing to do if you found airport plans in a garbage at a deli? It's a strange place to find plans to an airport. While this may not be newsworthy to you now, there is always the possiblity that it would become newsday in the future. Nobody felt it was newsworthy when Moussaoui was arrested in Minneapolis for suspected terrorist activities when he only wanted to learn how to fly a plane, not land it. Not even the FBI thought anything of it. Not until this act was used to kill 3,000 Americans did it actually become newsworthy.
I hope people continue to look out for strange activity and report it when necessary so that we never have to live through anything like we did on September 11th, 2001.
Okay, I see your point IF they were found at a 7-11, then sure terrorist could have found them, easily.
Yet they were found by some deli clerk who decided he was a hero. a proactive hero, a legend.

Has anyone, I repeat anyone, thought of the possibility that these were terrorists who somehow got the blueprints and threw them away when they were purchasing lighters at the deli in order to hold up both the terminal and airplanes with those lighters. Come on people, let's start thinking outside the box.

Maybe terrorist was not the issue,maybe it was the lack of responsiblity on the contractors part that was the issue.I wonder if this contractor checked his workers papers to see if they are in this country legally. Responsibility,is the key word here.Bravo a alert American citizen.P.S. next time your hungry for a sandwich go to Subway see what you get for your dollar

This article is not even a question about airport security or FARs. It's about Newsday constantly trying to crucify MacArthur Airport and Southwest Airlines. Like I said earlier... Newsday is a "Long Island" paper. They need to do what they can to keep the economy good on LONG ISLAND. Promote MacArthur Airport in a good light instead of constantly praising the City airports and driving people toward them. The airport and southwest gave people the opportunity to drive down the street to fly out of here instead of going to the city. Not to mention the jobs it created for people. Not just the airport people, but transportation services to and from the airport, car rentals, hotels.

Keep the money on the island.

The blueprints were clearly sticking out of the garbage can, if you saw the picture. So i dont think he was looking for tampons.

Amen, the gentleman was alert and did his civic duty. I'd buy a roll & butter/ bacon & egg on a roll from his Deli any time. Seriously, thank you sir. You did your civic duty perfectly.

By the way, I a past Port Jefferson resident now living in SW Florida would give a randsom for a good ol' NY roll & butter, nevermind an egg on a roll. They never heard of rolls down here in the tropics!
