On Sunday, Santacruz airport conducted one of its routine mock exercises which went a little awry when an overenthusiastic media mistook it for the real thing and landed at the airport in full strength.
Unsuspecting passengers who heard the `news' from the media persons gathered outside the airport manager's office for further information about the incident immediately panicked and started enquiries.
As per the procedures laid down for the mock hijacking drill, the cockpit crew of an Alliance Air Boeing aircraft on a Mumbai-Mangalore flight informed the air-traffic control that the plane was hijacked by a lone skyjacker. ``The ATC, as per the drill laid down, immediately alerted concerned agencies like Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, Airport officials and police, who immediately rushed to the airport,
The mock exercise began at 1.04 pm and lasted for two-and-a-half hours. Seventeen passengers drawn from various agencies and seven crew members were aboard the aircraft. Among the demands made by the `hijackers' included a getaway car, an audience with the prime minister and a sum of US $1 millon.
The negotiating team which included personnel drawn from various agencies also comprised experts in the field of psychology and psychiatry, Iyengar added. The lone `hijacker' was apprehended as he tried to escape in the `getaway' car
As only a few chosen officials from the higher echelons of the AAI and the airline were aware of the drill, some amount of confusion prevailed among the local staffers in the city who had to cancel their Sunday break and rush to work.

TH epoint of showing those passengers in my last post had nothing to do with their religion but more so the experience.
Daniel Lewin was trained in anti Hijacking, the pilots have Airforce experience, and the other passengers on most of the planes were mostly Ceo's, Vice presidents and founders of major companies.
There were no terrorists on the planes except for these guys. Nobody can find proof that Muhamed Atta was on that plane.
Nice try boone and swamp for trying to make it a jewish hating thing btw.

These stories are not made up by me. I am sorry if the conflicting storylines affects the golden haze of what I am sure was a distinguished career.

I just feel, instead of focusing on the 'HOW', we should be focused on the 'HOW---did we allow this to happen?!?' WHO dropped the ball? Clinton?? Bush??

How do we now use that to prosecute the REAL criminals?
What is 'Rule 11' in the District Courts?
In other words, knowing that you testified and might be bound by non disclosure rules, can you tell us, without divulging your testimony, about the law as you understand it?
