When crafting fake terrorist threats, don't get your information from Fox News

This flight attendent is being charged with interference with an airline, and I'm sure that more will probably come. She tried to scare people into thinking that terrorists had put a bomb on the plane.
As for her personal motivations, I wouldn't read too much into it. There are always a few people who are cracked and need attention and since it never occured to them to be a blogger and just spout off their opinions into cyberspace, they create unnecessary drama over stuff people actually take seriously.
However, I think this is very, very interesting:

The note read, "There is a bomb onboard this flt to Boston in cargo. Live Saddaam!" according to Nashville television station WSMV.
"She was one of the people we interviewed, and our investigation revealed that she was indeed the person responsible for the note," (FBI agent Doug)Riggin said.


My guess is that after reading the "Live Saddaam" part of the message, the FBI agents decided that the person who found it wrote it and went to have a beer. Because they would know that Saddam Hussein doesn't have anything to do with our current, Al Qaeda-driven terrorist threat. My guess is that this woman was watching all sorts of Fox News and decided that a real terrorist must be driven by his untoward love of Saddam Hussein.

Fox News: Making criminals dumber.

You think a fake terrorist threat is bad? I'll see your fake threat and raise you a 14-year-old sentenced for posing as a spy in a chatroom in order to have someone kill him.

How very weird. Of course they blamed the Internet. I wonder if people in times long ago were also prone to blaming the newest technology for everything--like Iron Age types shaking their heads and saying, "This is what comes with using bronze".
