Inside NSA Operation to Thwart 1973 Plot to Bomb NYC, Assassinate Israeli PM
March 6th, 2016
TEL AVIV – After it received an intercepted communication detailing the terrorist group Black September’s plans to bomb New York City and assassinate then-Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, the National Security Agency had to debate how best to disseminate the information in order to thwart the imminent murder and mayhem plot, it was revealed on Sunday.
James J. Welsh, who served as the NSA’s analyst for Palestinian communications from 1969 to 1974, was interviewed for “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM.
Welsh took listeners inside the NSA’s decision-making process that resulted in the New York Police Department finding and detonating three Black September car bombs in New York, including at least one at Israeli airline El Al’s cargo terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport that was intended to kill Meir when she landed there on March 4, 1973.
The other bombs were placed outside the First Israel Bank and Trust company at Fifth Avenue and 47th Street; and four blocks south on Fifth Avenue outside Israel Discount Bank.
“That could have been a really terrible situation had Golda Meir’s motorcade been passing by one of the vehicles parked alongside outside the airport,” Welsh told Klein.
“And then of course if she had visited over there in downtown New York, where those could have been detonated if the first bomb hadn’t succeeded.” (Read More)
