Shoot down a plane with 183 people on board. If a terrorist gains control of the plane and it starts heading toward something....you bet. He was going to overwhelm the sky marshal and burst through the hardened cockpit door and blind the pilot's with newport smoke [b]and take over the plane after learning to fly with his Wii-box.[/b] this thread is going in my favorites haha... :cruise: [/quote] that is just how absurd the entire irrational overreation hoopla of breathless "breaking news" is--over smoking in the boys room...

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.
