Why the f*** are Americans always sending their planes to Canada when they have a possible terrorist on board and why does our American-loving Conservative government always allow it?
They did the same thing on 9/11 when the planes landed in Canada on the east coast.
The foreign policy mess is your doing...you clean up the mess.
Agreed. And stop being so goddamned overly paranoid. The news stories we continually read about someone spots an unattened bag somewhere and people start running around like chickens with their heads cut off, SWAT teams and bomb squads are called in and it turns out to be someone's sack lunch or some shit. America is the only country - with the exception of North Korea maybe - that sees enemies everywhere all the time when they don't exist.
In a twist reminiscent of the plot of the 1964 Glenn Ford movie 'Fate Is the Hunter', the coffee spill caused distress signals to go out, including code 7500, which means hijacking or unlawful interference.
Crazy, that was just on TCM 2 nights ago. Great flick!
