Greek plane hijacked. . .
Place your bets, place your bets!
Could this plane be heading toward the Vatican?
Or is this an "old school" hijacking with demands placed and hostages held?
I'm voting on the missile scenario at the moment.
More to come as it gets reported. Updates will be added to this post.
UPDATE 1: 107 passengers. Plane has been diverted to Italian airfield. Apparently it's a "protest" of the Pope's upcoming visit to Turkey. Drudge reports the plane has landed at Brindisi, Italy.
COMMENT: Isn't that just par for the course. The Mohammedans are upset about the Pope quoting someone who said they were violent, and they challenge the quote by hijacking a plane. Beautiful Irony still abounds.
UPDATE 2: Apparently the hijacking was "foiled" in fligh, and the passengers are now safe. XXX SCRATCH THAT -- FALSE REPORT XXX
UPDATE 3: 2 hijackers still on board. Plane is on the groud. The "because of the Pope" theory is still holding.
