    Considering the High jacker was from the world's largest producer of Potassium, the Great Republic of Kazakhstan, i'd say this is a

    GREAT SUCESS!

    Every time something like this happens, I just cringe at the thought of what the TSA (masters of fighting the last war) will have brewing in response.

    I wonder if it means invading Kazakhstan and shutting down their nail clipping weapons of destruction manufacturing facilities.

    The fact that he wanted an AlItalia plane was the first indication that he was in a confused state of mind.

    He used the duct tape that keeps Alitalia seats together;) The TSA I think is moving to ban Alitalia seats, something I did a long time ago!

    At least the high jacker had good toe hygiene for when he decides to take his shoes off and them up on the bulkhead wall.

    So let me see if I have this right.......

    He attempts to hijack a flight with a pair of nail clippers and wants to be flown to Tripoli.

    Tripoli?

    Now?

    This person is definitely "in a confused state" ;)

    Oh, great -- and only weeks after my stupid tweezer incident. I still say a stick pen could do more damage...

    From what I read he was using a Swiss army knife, not just nail clippers. Keep in mind, the Swiss army has successfully defended their borders for 600 years with that weapon; it must be taken seriously.
