Update: AP Solves Mystery of Muslim Man Banging on Cockpit Door Shouting "Allahu Akbar"

You might have been bothered that of course authorities announced "no known motive."

Well, that is true, I concede. The motive is not known.

I could guess the living shit out of it, though.

Speaking of.

The AP, oddly enough, is brave enough to speculate as to motive.

I have to give them credit here: Most media organizations will not touch the issue of the motivation of oddly-behaving Muslim men with a ten foot pole.

AP is making a true gutsy call here. Nearly alone among the media, they're willing to speak uncomfortable truths.

AP attempted to shed some light on the man's intentions by quoting a relative of the man who helpfully suggested, "He might have seriously mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom.... He's only been on three planes in his whole life."

No "might have" about it. I'm sure that's it. It has the, what do you call it?, the texture of reality to it.

He was probably misquoted. In Arabic, I'm sure he probably said, "Allah willing, I must use the facilities. I've got a cliffhanger episode of Prison Break unfolding in my colon; Sucre's building a bomb and C-Note's crashing a van through the wall."

Great. Now, on top of pipebombs, mall-shootings, trail derailments, box cutters, and anthrax, we now have to worry about sharts.

(Thanks to Fritz for reminding me of that great word. No, not anthrax.)
