3. What a coinkydink!
People around the planet are calling processed cow feed on the convenient story out of Britain, so LIKE MAGIC another "foiled hijacking" appears out of thin air.

4. It sounded a lot more like...
...an developmentally disabled guy lost it and started walking up and down the aisle while on the plane. There was a account of a newscaster on MSNBC talking about it here:

I'm not sure why they are characterizing it as a 'hijack attempt', because that's not what the rest of the story sounded like.
