You have to take this sort of thing seriously. It is a must.

 

She could have a boyfriend or online playmate that got her to do it. It's beyond stupid, it's dangerous and terroristic.

When she said doing something big, maybe she meant throwing a party for the airline?

If something big happens in June, she'll really be in trouble then.

^ I think she was trying to type Abraham, but she isn't well educated.

 

Sarah needs to be removed from computers & phones.

I actually had a friend named Ibrahim once, so it's a real name.

I agree, it could be the spark of something bigger. A division of sorts. Hammer them with "stupid" tweets, then taper off and hit them when they "think" its just teens.

I suggest you need the education.  It is a common name!

That's a fairly ####ed up thing to say frankly. She's only 14 and obviously just had a misguided attempt at comedy.

 

14 is old enough to know whats wrong.  She wanted attention, so give her some, the legal kind.

She was using the Arab name for Abraham to go with the Al Qaeda reference.

No you don't.  It's clearly a silly joke and the airline are stupid to respond.

 

This is similar to the guy who had is life turned upside down when he joked that he would blow up Robin Hood airport if the snow prevented him from visiting his girlfriend.  It was clearly a joke designed to let off steam but the police and the airport decided to waste everyone's time and make some sort of example out of him.  Completely pointless and unnecessarily vindictive.


Here is an update to the story....

 

A Dutch teenager known only as Sarah tweeted a dangerously stupid joke Sunday afternoon, telling American Airlines that she was an al Qaeda member gearing up for a terrorist attack in June. The airline didn't take the tweet in stride; after dressing Sarah down, it proceeded to forward her IP address to the FBI, resulting in her arrest this morning in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Now, however, other

teenagers have started lobbing bomb threats at American Airlines. Somewhat incongruously, those joking threats spiraled into an explicit photo being tweeted by US Airways in the process.

 

Tweets that mirrored Sarah's original tweet started coming in this morning, aimed at American Airlines (and even others like Southwest) and all as if to dare the companies to report them to the authorities.

Probably the best response to a ridiculous situation.

this is why kids need to be supervised when on the web , I worked at an airport hub in the 90's and they have NO sense of humor when it comes to that stuff
