Forged passports aren't needed for domestic flights, which is what these were.
Based on Don's estimate of a couple of dozen people, a couple of dozen thousands
are all that's needed, to get the people there and buy them their tickets. It's
unlikely that you'd find many Americans, no matter how fanatic, that would get
on a plane with the intention of crashing the thing into something, though, and
forget the training. OTOH, the only bunch that has, in the past, done anything
so extreme without a claim of credit would be the U.S.-grown types.

It doesn't have to be a big operation, though, and, based on the assessment that
the one plane that crashed in Pennsylvania was a hijacking gone sour, the
traning and planning wasn't that perfect, either.
