Media Doesn't Mention Allahu Akbar in Air Incident
There's something the media left out in coverage of a Yemeni man who attempted to break into the cockpit of a California flight.
A Vallejo man holding a Yemeni passport tried to break into the locked cockpit of an American Airlines flight bound for San Francisco before crew members and passengers, including two retired law enforcement officers, were able to subdue him, authorities said Monday.
Rageh Ahmed Mohammed Al-Murisi, 28, who was carrying a California identification card in addition to his Yemeni passport, was wrestled to the floor of the Boeing 737 near the end of the four-hour flight Sunday night. He was charged in U.S. District Court in San Francisco with interfering with a flight crew and is scheduled to appear in court today with an Arabic interpreter.
