is the Homeland Security policy slightly "over the top" ???
If a good amount of passengers were getting freaked out by these three Pakistani men, did it ever occur to you that diverting the plane is a good thing for the safety of these men?
It's not completely out of the realm of possibility that one or more passengers, if they were fearing for their own safety, could attack these apparently innocent men. Getting the plane on the ground and assessing the situation was the best course of action.
