One of the suicide terrorists, Ziad Jarrahi, doesn’t fit the profile at all. In a videotape from a wedding last year he is seen dancing. He was known to have a fiancé. And he was one of the men drinking at Shuckems that final Friday night.
Ranstorp believes some of the terrorists may not have known their mission was to be a suicide mission.
“It doesn’t fit the pattern, of leaving all of that behind then going and killing yourself the next day,” he says. “I’m sure that there were individuals on that plane who were not aware exactly what was going to happen, that this was just a hijacking.”
Again by the book — which is one of the few clues authorities now have in trying to figure out what’s next.
