I wrote yesterday about the disturbing incident on AirTran flight 297 which remains clouded in mystery. Add United Airlines to the mix in an ever growing saga of Middle Eastern looking men causing disturbances on U.S. flights. Most recently, UAL flight 227 on December 9, 2009 had to return to the gate in order to remove unruly passengers of Middle Eastern descent who were engaging in suspicious conduct. One passenger stated that he had never seen flight attendants so scared in his life. As previously discussed, these incidents on AirTran and United Airlines should not be viewed in a vacuum.We could be seeing a return of Al Qaeda & Co. using U.S. airliners in order to carry out terrorist attacks on U.S. soil or in other parts of the world if the U.S. government fails to heed the warning signs.
