Intel is investigating. Eric Margolis, terror analyst said maybe a plane with an improperly filed flight plan. Intel sources, however, say may be a bomb. Two Italian F-16 fighter jets were in pursuit and escorting the plane to an airport outside of Rome.

Last night on local Atlanta news they had a report of a midle eastern man who was taking pilot training at the same place that a 9-11 terrorist got his training. He had the proper documentation but was "suspicious". A warning and the guys picture went out to airports around the country.

The guy was last known to be in England.

Considering many in the MSM continued to point out that no one was being denied the right to carry in bags and packages of all kinds with no searches at all.

Oh my. Well, if there is something hostile going on here, the whole world will certainly take up some action against terrorism. This would be a very, very stupid act on the part of the terrorists.

Well, he would also have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to know that he shouldn't be in that air space without a proper flight plan.

I wonder when this happened?

Seems to me that their #1 target is already long gone from there.

Do we know what time the president's plane is to depart Italy? I will be relieved when he, the first lady, and their group return home. Clinton can stay there though.

I hope, if there is something going on, they let the Mafia at these guys/this guy first. The Mafia doesn't take hostages!

Being escorted to land? Willingly? Can't be too dangerous. Terrorists would have blown themselves up.
