The FBI released a list last Friday naming 19 people as the hijackers of 
the four planes involved the in recent attacks.  Many of those people 
appear to be of Saudi descent.  However, Saudi newspapers have since 
published pictures and interviews with at least 5 people named on that list 
who are still alive and living in Saudi Arabia.  It appears that the FBI, 
in its haste, may not have considered the possibility that attackers used 
stolen or forged passports.


Yet another reason to take our time before accusing people of crimes and 
preparing retaliation.
