Its almost sad that in this day and age, a hijacker who was not intent on killing all on board ( or at least seems to have not wanted to as he released most after landing) almost feels like good news compared to the story we come to expect post 9/11. Lets hope that the crew and remaining pax are released with out any further conflict or any injury and loss of life.
