Security Issue at San Francisco International Airport

UPDATE: The FBI has stated that a threat against a New York-bound American Airlines flight was not credible.

American Airlines Flight 24, which was scheduled to fly this afternoon from San Francisco to New York, has been moved to a remote location at the San Francisco International Airport, after a threat was called in via phone.

Here is a statement which was just released by the TSA:

“TSA is aware of an alleged threat made via phone against American Airlines flight 24 (SFO-JFK) before take-off. Out of an abundance of caution, TSA requested the plane be moved to a remote location. Passengers are being deplaned and will be interviewed and rescreened. The aircraft will be swept by local law enforcement.”

From CNN:

A threat made against an American Airlines plane preparing to take off from San Francisco International Airport on Thursday prompted authorities to ask the passengers to deplane and be rescreened, the Transportation Security Administration said.

Passengers will be interviewed and rescreened while law enforcement inspects the aircraft, TSA said.

    Isn’t there some way to “Trace” such Calls which contain Threats/Bomb Scares/Attacks, etc, (usually made against a major Target and causing total Upheaval?). “Credible” or not, such Phone Activity is a Felony, and I’m Curious if and how the “Source” is tracked-down.
