    That may be the thing that gets them off. Now what I'd like to know is who at the NTSB confirmed that, and why wasn't the NSA listening to that call?

    My guess would be that there was a substitution of the names before they went on air...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Could be. In which case, then they should be suing the station because one of their employees thought it was a hilarious joke.

    There is no law that says that you can successfully sue someone for making fun of you.

    It's amazing how few people understand that basic truth, however you want to phrase it.

    The NSA was listening - they were laughing too hard to take any action.

    How would the airline have standing for a case like this?

    I could see the pilots themselves suing, but the airline?

    I think the airline is trying to save face but this is definitely not the way to go about it.

    They would have saved more face by making a statement that this blunder did not warrant a response as their number one concern at this time should be the passengers of that airline.
