Je Suis Jack’s Complete Lack of Surprise

It’s been five hours after his tweeted threats. Two airliners have made emergency landings and been evacuated, several F-16s have been scrambled, and a couple of bomb disposal squads called into action. One strongly suspects a SWAT team or two is being quietly assembled as well.

It’s been five hours and the fool is still online, currently twittering about his xbox and playing gta v no less, the earlier plane prank seemingly forgotten. Which kind of blows a hole in the “ticking bomb” arguments of the pro-torture lobby.
