Terror on my mind

"After seeing 14 Middle Eastern men board separately (six together, eight individually) and then act as a group, watching their unusual glances, observing their bizarre bathroom activities, watching them congregate in small groups, knowing that the flight attendants and the pilots were seriously concerned, and now knowing that federal air marshals were on board, I was officially terrified."

Nothing to fear but fear itself? An intense account of skyborne terror struck me with both fear and scepticism. Genuine or not, the piece's dramatic narrative certainly makes this a "page turner".
