[quote:Inita Richman:MV8xMDMzMzIxXzE2MzQxNTcyX0Q2RkQ1N0I4] [quote:Anonymous Coward 937369] and what were the f16s going to do--shoot down the plane, for smoking in the boys room? do you know what it costs to rev up a pair of f16s? stupid response to a lacking common sense overreacttion by the sky marshall, who was just dying to finally be able to shoot somebody and be a hero--and now is clearly an asshole who cost the taxpayers a fortune, and a couple hundred ordinary passengers a lot of inconvenience, over an unquestionably bad joke You need help dude! I guess you don't think the jackass that lit a cig is to blame, just the least little bit??? sure it was stupid--but again, what were the f16s going to do--spray air freshener? typical pig overreaction, like they often do when challenged at any level from the simple traffic stop on up arrest the guy for smoking in the forbidden zone, sure--but call out the air force and make a big show? what were f16s going to do, even if there was a bomb surgically implanted in the diplomats breast implants, as recent "be really afraid and don't question out gate agents feeling you up" ? propaganda would suggest. I got groped by a dyke bitch in a tsa uniform making minwage just the other day flying out of pbia [/quote] I will agree with you on one thing, scrambling the F16s has never made much sense to me, what are they gonna do? Shoot down a plane with 183 people on board. Do they think they would scare the person, IF it had been a terrorist? I doubt it. [/quote]

Federal air marshals subdued a man who authorities say attempted to "light his shoes on fire" on a United flight from Washington Reagan to Denver Wednesday night, federal law enforcement officials told ABC News.
Authorities say an explosive team is on the way to the airport, and that while the presence of explosives has not yet been confirmed, they believe it was an attempted "shoe bomb."
The suspect was identified by authorities as a diplomat in the Qatar embassy in Washington, Mohammed al Modadi. The FBI said the man had full diplomat immunity as the 3rd secretary and vice-consul.
Authoritiess said two jet fighters were scrambled from Buckley Air Force Base to accompany United flight 663, a Boeing 757, as it flew the final 40 miles to Denver where it landed safely.
Authorities said the man, identified as from Qatar, was restrained by the air marshals who were on the flight.
The United jet was reportedly being directed to a remote location at the Denver airport.
A spokesman for the FBI in Denver declined to comment.
