America is asking: "is Saleh the little boy who cried wolf?" What would make the Delta passengers think about #Terrorism?

Saleh's past videos

Some even say that he got the reaction he was seeking. According to Vox, this is the case. I as a writer travel the world. My wife is from India, and we travel there to visit her parents.

In my experience of traveling abroad, I have never seen anyone booted from a plane for speaking Arabic. As a matter of fact, many of the people we fly with speak Arabic. On whether Saleh's story is the truth, we may never know. However, his past videos put questions in the minds of many.
