WNBC investigative reporter Scott Weinberger reported on Joe Scarborough’s MSNBC show tonight that the 14 Syrians on Northwest Flight 327 ALL had expired visas.

National Review Online has just posted an article by Clint Taylor, who seems to have identified the mystery band on Flight 327. Will have more after the kids are asleep, but it looks like Taylor has done the sleuthing that the deep-pocketed mainstream media wasn’t interested in doing (and all it took was Google and […]

The New York Times ran a piece today by Joe Sharkey purporting to report on “What Really Happened” on Flight 327 with the 14 Syrian passengers observed by writer Annie Jacobsen. The piece skews toward the Nothing Happened camp and concludes with a quote from Federal Air Marshal spokesman Dave Adams saying: “They gave their […]

Just watched the excellent special report on MSNBC hosted by Joe Scarborough regarding Annie and Kevin Jacobsen’s account of what they saw on Northwest Flight 327.

Ok, the kids are asleep. 1) Skeptics (yeah, even the ones who hate my guts) are having an interesting discussion here. 2) Still no word from any other passengers. It’s possible that after Jacobsen appears on the networks, folks will come forward. 3) Reader Liz Roewe has sent several questions to the editors of WomensWallStreet.com […]

I have been speaking with Brendi Rawlin of Porter Novelli (PR rep for Womens Wall Street). According to Brendi, the Washington Post has been sitting on the true story of Annie Jacobsen’s “Terror in the Skies” account since last Friday, when WomensWallStreet.com approached him.

Regarding Annie Jacobsen’s intriguing article, I just got word from Dave Adams of the Federal Air Marshals Service (FAM). Adams confirmed that he spoke to Annie Jacobsen, was quoted accurately in her story, and confirmed some of the basic facts outlined in her article (there were 14 Syrians on the flight; they were questioned by […]

Several readers have sent me the link to this fascinating article from WomensWallStreet.com, which brings to mind James Woods’ experience prior to September 11, 2001. Update: Over at Redstate, Martinipundit says the story is a hoax (hat tip: Instapundit). Update II: Reader Liz Roewe cc’d me on an e-mail to the editors of WomensWallStreet.com. An […]
