Military jets escort Alaska Airlines flight into Sea-Tac; FBI questions passenger

Source: Seattle Times

... The passenger questioned by agents was named as a security threat by someone who called the FBI this afternoon, according Honolulu-based FBI agent Tom Simon. He said the passenger is being interviewed by FBI agents in Seattle to see if he was indeed a security threat.
