TERROR IN THE SKIES AUTHOR Annie Jacobsen is on MSNBC right now, with her husband.

UPDATE: Good hour of TV. The Jacobsens seemed credible — by which I mean they seemed honest. The experts afterward were skeptical that they actually witnessed anything untoward, but they all agreed that security is still weak. Annie Jacobsen said that the investigators couldn’t even say what kind of instruments the musicians were carrying suggesting that the investigation wasn’t as thorough as the FBI is claiming, and at the end Joe Scarborough said they had been flooded with emails from passengers and crew who said that things have seemed odd lately on a number of flights.

I don’t know if there’s anything to this or not, and we may never find out. It’s certainly true, though, that it’s focusing attention onto problems with flight security, and we need that.
