It's all too easy to read too much into these things and claim that wordings are politically motivated when in truth they are not, and the very thought probably never occurred to the person who came out with it. The people involved in taking control of the planes were hijackers and they committed suicide in the process of their crime which makes "suicide hijacker" an accurate term. Unlike many of the terms used in todays news it is also not leading you to make any assumptions about the people involved. What they (The journalists) have done - if indeed it was deliberate - is actually good journalism in many ways, something we have come to not expect. Is the fact that the terrorists were muslim relevant to the program? I'm inclined to say yes of course it is, but also to beleive that the program cannot possibly have gone for the entire length without mentioning either Islam as a factor in the attacks, or the fact that the terrorists were muslims. Basically the writers could have referred to the terrorists as "Extreme islamic suicide hijackers" to leave us in absolutely no doubt, but i think it may have gone over budget. Also would that not also be somewhat a politcally correct thing to do?
