This is VERY disturbing

This is an absolutely stunning account of a Northwest flight on which fourteen Arab men acted in a really, really strange and disturbing way. In reading it, it was clear that they either were practicing the assembly of a bomb on a plane or actually doing it and failing. It's a disturbing, scary thing to read.

But here's the kicker. It is still illegal to detain more than two Arab men at the same time! Apparently this is "discriminatory", and we can't have any of that, now can we! Unbelievable! Clearly the terrorists know this and are acting accordingly. Gather up fourteen of them, and twelve are sure to get through. Put a bomb in an orthopedic shoe, and we'll never touch the guy.

Good Lord, Mineta has to GO!

Update: There is some skepticism about this story, but Michell Malkin is on the case.

More: Here's Instapundit on the case.

Some folks are questioning why it takes fourteen terrorists to assemble a bomb. My take is that it doesn't, but that it does take 14 terrorist to assemble a bomb and fight off passengers trying to stop them. They know that passengers won't idly sit by (or maybe they don't, given what happened on this flight), and so a small army of guys will make a successful hijacking more likely.
