The warning has gone out - Al Qaeda may try to hijack more airplanes to use as weapons. This actually doesn’t worry me very much. The only real hope of making this a success would be to sieze the plane when it was near the target because the hijackers won’t retain control of the plane for long. It may be that we’ll see many fewer hijackings for any reason because the passengers will view acting against the hijackers as less risky than letting them do as they will.
