Ah, it seems like just yesterday that we last visited
I like the unvarnished description:
The local ABC affiliate in Detroit, WXYZ, was a bit more explicit in its language, noting that “the ABC News National Security team is telling Action News that their sources say the flight was disrupted by two people having intimate relations in one of the bathrooms.”
Now consider the FBI version:
An FBI statement on the incident, however, mentions neither “making out” nor “intimate relations.” It says simply, “Out of an abundance of caution, NORAD scrambled F-16 jets to shadow the flight until it landed safely at DTW at approximately 3:30 PM EDT. Law enforcement met the flight, which was brought to a remote area of the airport. The plane was swept with negative findings and cleared at 5:15 PM ET.”
Rule Number 1 of the police state: you must continuously justify the existence of the police state.
