Not every security incident in the skys lately is cause for concern. Sometimes it’s just a misunderstanding.
CHICAGO (AP) – A Japanese man flying to Ohio was arrested after he was seen writing down the words “suicide bomb,” but he was released without charge after explaining that it was an impromptu English exercise.
The 60-year-old man told investigators he came across the words in a newspaper and wanted to look up their meaning, police spokeswoman Alice Casanova said.
“He teaches himself English by reading newspapers,” she said. “It was all just a miscommunication.”In other more serious matters, Michelle Malkin reports that new information on the original Terror In The Skies story continues to surface.
