Because of this incident, fighter jets escorted the plane into Honolulu. Uskanil, as you can see from the report below, was drinking — so therefore people will say that this incident had nothing to do with Islam or jihad.

Anti-terrorism police are now looking into whether he has links with militant groups, the investigative source said, in a separate line of investigation from the attempted murder inquiry.
