WHAT HAPPENED ON UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 23
 LEAVING JFK AIRPORT AT 9:00 AM ON 9-11-01?

NBC has just broadcast that there well might be other terrorists who escaped and are still in the United States.  United Flight 23 was scheduled to take off from JFK airport bound for Los Angeles on that fateful Tuesday, September 11, 2001.  There was an altercation between 3 men described as wearing Arab dress and the flight crew of this United flight.  The flight attendants demanded that these three men leave the airplane prior to its departure scheduled for 9:00 a.m. EST.  The men refused and an armed team was called to the plane by the flight crew.  When the armed guard boarded the plane the three men had disappeared.

An off duty law enforcement officer saw three men answering their description meet another man in the airport bar where the events at the World Trade Center were unfolding on the television.   The man observed what he described as an angry exchange between the four men and the next time he looked in their direction they were gone.  Later the officer reported this information to the FBI when he realized there might be a connection.

Is it possible that an observant flight crew saved this plane and its passengers from yet another tragedy?  Where are the four men today?
