In late August of 2001, James Woods was on a flight from Boston to Los Angeles, California.
On the flight, while being in first class, he noticed 4 men nearby him acting very suspiciously. He stated that they never drank anything, ordered food, service, talked or had any kind of interaction with anybody. They were just whispering to each other as if they were planning something.
James Woods reports his suspicions upon arrival to police officers at the Airport and it reached the FBI but they did not worry or take it seriously. 2 weeks later the 9/11 attacks occurred. Woods was interviewed several times by FBI Agents and Woods has confirmed that after looking at the pictures that two of the hijackers were the men that he had seen on his flight.
Woods sat with the terrorist for an entire six-hour flight, where he studied their conducts and watched them very closely. Authorities didn’t pay him that much attention back then and hence a lot of lives were lost.
Hopefully now they take reports from passengers more seriously.
