ICTS took over passenger screening and security at the Boston and Newark airports when ICTS acquired Huntleigh USA in 1999. United Flight 175 and American Flight 11, which allegedly struck the twin towers, both originated from Boston’s Logan Airport, while United Flight 93, which purportedly crashed in Pennsylvania, departed from the Newark airport.
Established in 1988, ICTS Belgium operates from its principal office in Brussels, with operational centers at Brussels Airport and Redu. ICTS Belgium specializes in the provision of security services to airports, airlines, corporate, private and public sector clients.
Huntleigh, along with two other foreign security companies, was granted congressional protection in 2002 and will not be called to account for its actions in any U.S. court.
An act of Congress transferred all 9/11 wrongful death suits to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, presided over by Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein. He has presided over almost all the 9/11 court cases. The 9-11 wrongful death and personal injury cases against American Air Lines (AA) or UAL or any of the foreign security companies, namely Argenbright Security (British), Globe Aviation Services Corp. (Swedish) and Huntleigh USA Corp. (Israeli) are being handled Hellerstein.
In the case of at least one of these security defendants, Huntleigh, there would seem to be a conflict of interest for the judge because the airline security company who is responsible for the shocking security lapses at both the Boston and Newark airports on 9-11 is a wholly-owned subsidiary of an Israeli company (ICTS) headed by men with clear ties to Israel’s military intelligence agency, Mossad.
Judge Hellerstein’s son is Joseph Hellerstein. Joseph Hellerstein worked for an Israeli law firm. That Israeli law firm represented a company called B.O.S., Better On-Line Solutions. One of the guys on the board of directors is a Israeli man who was formerly the chairman of the Board of Directors of ICTS. His family has a majority ownership stake in ICTS – they own more than 50% of the company.
ICTS currently has contracts with Delta Airlines at Paris Charles deGaulle, Gatwick in London, Continental out of Milan and Barcelona, and 100 other airlines operating out of 50 European airports in 12 countries and the firm employs some 5000 personnel. Many of the firm’s officers are ex-Mossad and Shin Bet officers.
ICTS handled security for London’s bus network during the July 7, 2005, ‘suicide’ bomb attacks. The European ICTS centre is at: ICTS (UK) Limited, 1st Floor, South Block, Tavistock House, Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9TW – this just happens to be exactly where the Number 30 bus blew up on July 7th; and just happens to be facing the Woburn hotel in Tavistock Square, where the original Zionist movement is said to have started.
ICTS allowed ‘underwear bomber’, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, to “slip through” and board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit with explosive materials on Christmas day 2009. ICTS cleared shoe bomber Richard Reid, through security at Amsterdam airport in December 2001.
