US: Terrorists are going to be using French flights! Here's a list. Watch this Tunisian guy, he's crafty.
French: Hmmm... let me check. [investigates] Hrm... non. We have checked. There are no terrorists on any of these flights. That are cancelled.
US: What about that Tunisian guy? He's crafty. Got a pilots license.
French: Um... yes, well, you see, he es still in Tunisia. Has no plans to leave.
US: Told you he was crafty!
Oops, we did it again, another false alarm, or so it looks.
