I hope that you are

I hope that you are consistent then and check that each aeroplane part is in place before you board a flight. After all, the govt. might sabotage it to spread fear and martial law no? Pretend it was done by terrorists.

Empathy is the ability to put yourself in the other person's shoes and feel as he is feeling. If your father or spouse were among the party hunting the terrorist down what emotions would be going through your mind?

Yes, I am appealing to emotion, before you accuse me of it. We are all human, all emotional, including govt. officials who you seem to completely dehumanize. If you do that you cannot really complain when they do the same to you.
