WAR: Nose Down

When that Egypt Air flight went down in the Red Sea recently, I couldn't help but think of the 1999 crash brought on when one of the pilots put the plane into a nose dive - apparently deliberately - while repeating an Islamic prayer of sorts, an event that in retrospect seems like an obvious precursor to what came later. Michele had the same thought, and links to this chilling 2001 Atlantic article about that crash; if you haven't read it before, it's a must-read.

Please clarify what "what" was that was an obvious precursor to what "what" was that came later.

Bottom line, are you saying 1999 was a precursor to 9/11? Or that the event was a precursor to the subsequent investigation, or that it was a precursor to the recent crash.

Not following you here.

PS - If its a precursor to 9/11, please spell it out for us and how you believe this to be so.
