A terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York was evacuated Sunday evening for about two hours after a caller phoned in a threat, according to a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
John Kelly of the Port Authority said a female caller claimed there was a bomb in Terminal One in a call about 5:40 p.m.
"Using the utmost due diligence, we evacuated the terminal," Kelly said. About 300 people were inside at the time, he said.
Once the terminal had been searched, the evacuation was ended shortly after 8 p.m., Kelly said.
Kelly said an earlier, unrelated incident at the same terminal occurred when a Port Authority officer noticed an unattended bag. That bag was examined and cleared, he said.
I hope it's nothing serious!
I wonder if CNN news anchor Octavia Nasr expresses deep respect and adulation for the perpetrator of this terror attack, just as she did earlier when hearing of the death of a Hezbollah terrorist.
I blame Obama
Just kidding - but I figure, it won't be long before somebody would anyway... :)
hahahaaa.... I like that one. everything is being blamed on Obama. Why not this one too... it would make sense. I am sure he called JFK to distract the american people :)
He is president, and should start taking accountability for something. When will he take responsibility for anything as the president?
Brian.. what do you mean "take responsibility"? Are you waiting for him to come out and say "I take responsibility for X"? Because, you know... thats not something that makes it into the words said by presidents very often.
Blame Obama?! Get real, he hasn't hit the two year mark yet. So everyone is still blaming Bush for whatever goes wrong.
What do you mean "blame Obama"???????? Any moron knows it's Bush's fault!
My mom is about to land on Polish Airlines coming from Rzeszow , Poland ,...hope everything is good.

What happened to the reports of this being a hoax. And why did all the news websites take down this article not too long ago and put it up with different information? Are you guys making stuff up now?
Thank God for our quick and brave lawmen
Amen brother. AMEN.
its 4th of july.free fireworks show!!!!
its not a joke ...
Please. The only reason the airport was evacuated was because a bunch of butthurt jokers on a website called 4chan called in a bomb threat to keep some girl named Rachel Wissner from boarding a plane to Africa.
Ash Mahtani, David Afable, Sam Schroeder, Eric Michael Britz, Julianna Mellitas
I bet Lindsay Lohan did it so she could get out of her court appearance!!!
I thought the same thing, but was waiting to see if TMZ or Perez Hilton posted it first... lol
It's obvious that it's time that all passengers and visitors are strip searched BEFORE being allowed to enter airport properties. Der should be security stations outside of ze airports to perform zis funktion!
lol i was just reading that thread on 4chan
Here's to hoping it wasn't another underwear terrorist dropping a bomb in his pants! How can they profane the good work of Fruit of the Loom?
Islam is the root of terrorism:(
