The Homeland Security Department's inspector general is investigating an incident involving 14 Syrian passengers aboard a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles last summer described by many federal air marshals and passengers as a dry run for a terrorist attack.
The investigation began shortly after the June 29 incident, but did not become public until the final phase of the inquiry when passengers reported facing hours of questioning in March from inspectors. "
Perhaps this was an actual terrorist attack. What IF, 14 suicide terrorist were infected with smallpox, or marburg, or ebola and all the needed to do was get on an airplane. The air on aircraft is always bad and often recirculated to save fuel. Passangers are infected, but syptoms don't start for days and is spead to 50 different cities before the outbreak is discovered. What IF?

Just before landing, seven of the men stood in unison and went inside the restrooms. Upon returning to his seat, the last man mouthed the word "no" as he ran his finger across his throat.
But there was one problem in Jacobsen's account. The 14 men claiming to be musicians were, in fact, exactly that. Nour Mehana, a well-known Syrian singer, had been travelling on the plane along with his entire backing band.
James Cullen of Athem Artists confirmed that Mehana and the band were on the same flight as Jacobsen. The band went on to play a gig on the outskirts of San Diego.
Mehana, who plays a mix of traditional and modern Arab music, is well known in the Middle East. It is likely that he was the man Jacobsen saw sitting in first class wearing sunglasses. Jacobsen says she does not recognise Mehana or any of the band members.

My point is.....this was a dry run, but not for a Bio attack, just another suicide rehersal.

After reading your last post regarding Marburg and Ebola I'd have to say you are a bit paranoid.
I am certain if you were actually a bio lab designer that you would not be here discussing your paranoia.
