Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - As more and more Al Qaeda recruits become unwilling to sacrifice their lives to make a religious statement by blowing themselves and innocent people up on planes, terrorists are having to re-think the whole "how can we make the infidels pay?" scheme.
Last week, an Air France Flight had to make an emergency landing in Northeast Brazil due to a bomb threat that turned out to be false. No terrorist group even claimed responsibility for that scare saying that crying wolf doesn't work, has never worked, and just serves to dilute a terrorist group's hold on the people they are trying to scare.
So, Al Qaeda has come up with Plan C, sabotage airplane toilets. To them, it is the perfect plan. They just sneak a person on-board who has limited mechanical and plumbing capabilities (it's perfectly legal to carry wrenches in your carry-on luggage), and have them disable the toilets on-board an overseas flight.
This strategy was put to the test this week when yet another Air France bound for Paris had to turn around and head back to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A few hours into the flight, just moments after the last of the full complimentary on-board meals were served to all the passengers and free beer, wine and sodas were handed out freely, all toilets on-board became inoperable. One astute passenger, Adriana Freitas from Rio, noticed a suspicious man who seemed to go from bathroom to bathroom while the meals were being served.
"I didn't think anything of it until people started lining up to use the bathroom only to find that they were not working properly. The whole plane seemed to be thrown into panic, especially the Brazilians on board who cannot eat a meal without immediately brushing their teeth and washing their hands afterwards."
Although there was one properly working toilet on the flight, the one in the first-class luxury section, the flight crew ordered it off-limits to the second and third-class passengers on the flight. Facing a violent uprising and fearing for the lives of their first-class passengers, captain made the decision to return to Rio, where, upon arrival, portable toilets were waiting on the tarmac for the passengers to use, although they had to wait, of course, until the first-class passengers in front of them leisurely exited the plane.
