"Terror in the Skies," Three Years Later:
Three years ago, a lot of bloggers were discussing Annie Jacobson's story about being on a flight involving an apparent terrorist "dry run." (It's no longer online, but it's now in book form. Snopes has a summary.) After awhile, the consensus was that it was all a false alarm; it looked like the group was just a music band, and Jacobsen had overreacted. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security released a version of its 2006 Inspector General report about the flight. If I read the report correctly, it confirms a lot of the suspicious behavior that Jacobson had reported (while not suggesting that the group actually had any evil plans). It's worth checking out if you wanted a follow-up to the Jacobson story.
