The usually uninteresting Salon series about airlines etc. has an hiLARious critique (no reg mirror here) on the woman who thought she spotted some Syrian hijackers. Here she is, quoted in the Salon piece:

So the question is ... Do I think these men were musicians? I'll let you decide. But I wonder, if 19 terrorists can learn to fly airplanes into buildings, couldn't 14 terrorists learn to play instruments?

Ahh, the intelligent electorate. Read and enjoy. Never have I seen such self-important, alarmist melodrama.

Almost never.

Now Snopes has made a statement about this.
