Annie Jacobsen, whose reporting for PajamasMedia revealed the Transportation Security Administration was not tracking foreign flight school students will be my guest on News Talk Online on Paltalk Monday March 10th.
Jacobsen caused a stir in 2004 when she wrote for WomensWallStreet.com about what she perceived to be suspicious activities by a group of Muslim men on a Northwest Airlines flight she was on with her husband. Jacobsen reported about what she believed to be inaction by the crew and air marshals on board to what she had witnessed.
The story caused a stir and resulted in the Department of Homeland Security issuing statements of denials that the crew and the air marshals acted inappropriately.
The men, members of a band, were briefly detained when the plane landed in Los Angeles. They were released after questioning determined they were not involved in any terrorist activities.
She recounts in detail the harrowing flight in her book, Terror in the Skies.
Jacobsen is a journalist and author. Her work on business, finance, and terrorism has appeared in a variety of national and international magazines and websites. A graduate of Princeton University, she lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and two sons.
