There is an awful lot of pinging the system going on right now. Testing defenses? Dry runs? I know some of you out there think the whole al Qaeda thing has been blown out of proportion. Well, this administration’s incompetence in virtually every matter has made us less safe to the real threats. One’s similar to what happened today. This from Stratfor:
Twelve passengers from a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Mumbai, India, were arrested Aug. 23, Dutch TV reported. The plane requested to return to Schiphol Airport under escort after the crew noticed some of the passengers acting suspiciously. U.S. air marshals were aboard the flight, which landed safely.
And this from the Seattle Times:
Northwest Flight NW0042 was escorted back by two F-16s after crew members reported several passengers were acting suspiciously, the Defense Ministry said earlier.
Several passengers on Northwest Airlines Flight NW0042 to Bombay were taken off the plane for questioning after it landed safely, airport spokeswoman Pamela Kuypers said. Others were questioned at the gate.
