Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks -- two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin. "That would alarm me," said a federal air marshal who asked to remain anonymous. "They now control all of the entry and exit routes to the plane."
In related news, Muslims plan to boycott US AIR over this incident on the belief that US AIR was too aggressive in their security measures. The sad thing is that a Muslim free airline would probably do quite well. Religious intolerance or well earned paranoia? Personally I'd rather sit next to a slight Muslim than a ginormous Catholic, simply because I would have more room. As long as the person is well behaved, I couldn't care less how they worship God or which god they worship. But if allegedly mainstream Muslims are going to behave like this, perhaps it's best they boycott all airlines.
