Hijacked! Airs Tonight on PBS.

Here is the description from the PBS website.

“A look at the coordinated hijacking of four jetliners in 1970 by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which blew up the evacuated planes in Jordan. Included: the militants’ use of civilians to further their goals.”

Funny, I thought people who hijack planes and hold people hostage were called terrorists, not militants. I don’t know why but I just get this feeling that we’re gonna see a lot of explanations for why these terrorists do what they do. There will be more excuses and reasons and a blame America style attitude. That “we created this problem ourselves” type of storytelling. Maybe I’m wrong. We shall see.

Watch the preview here. Watch the press conference here. It’s surreal.
