Well, the French GIGN rescued all hostages from a hijacked Air France plane in Marseilles 1994.

The terrorists were planning on flying the fully tanked plane into the Eiffel tower...sound familiar..?

Being French is just wrong. I wonder if the French asked the Al-Queda if they would like to partake in a friendly game of sodomy.
