Following up on Flight 327

Lotta web chat about the Syrian band on Flight  327 but nothing on the WT article.  My take:

(1) This tidbit has been ignored:  "a man of Middle Eastern descent locked himself in [the lavatory] for a long period. The marshal found the mirror had been removed and the man was attempting to break through the wall. The cockpit was on the other side " -- !?!? EXCUSE ME?

Folks, that should set off some major alerts but I don't see a trace of follow up.   When?  Where is the miscreant now?  Why is the media completely ducking this -- are corroboration rules suddenly back in vogue?

(2) The Syrian band should be on extended vacation at taxpayer expense. I don't care if they passed the initial interview, visa or no visa -- they're Middle Eastern men who brought themselves to the attention of a flight crew with threatening, rule breaking behavior...  "Sit down, boys, we need to talk.  This could take a while."

We ARE at war with Islamofacism. We ARE being probed.  We SHOULD take prudent countermeasures.
