According to this article at NRO, it appears the Syrians on Annie Jacobson's flight have been identified. I was thinking about it last night, and if these are the guys, and they did act in a purposely suspicious manner, you gotta wonder why? Now this is my cynical thought: because they got their kicks out of mentally terrorizing a bunch of infidels. I remembered that incident shortly after 9/11 when there was a group of Arab men in the Denny's who purposely made the woman sitting in the booth next to them think they might be terrorists. So the band members weren't terrorists, but there's a very good chance they have sympathy for terrorists and are in agreement with their cause and methods. Why not pass the time on the plane freaking out their fellow passengers?
Hey, I said it was a cynical thought. But that's the kind of gal I am.Posted by Ithildin at July 22, 2004 9:03 AM | PROCURE FINE OLD WORLD ABSINTHE
