You just proved a point I've been making all along. America's full of sheeple. Again..the media over the last decade has portrayed that image to be the bad guy...the guy that's strapped a bomb to his ass and is hiding in your garage ready to take your family hostage. Meanwhile it's our own govt that put these assholes on the plane to begin with.
In reality it's a hundred of passengers against 1 terrorist. If there is a threat there are more than enough people to take that guy (or any other nut) down should there be a real threat. Shit if anything just hire former marines as undercover armed air marshals (which they already do).
