I am aware of that part of the story. But when I dug a little deeper, it seemed to me that there were contrasting opinions about this discussion they had in the flight.

The lead negoitator(his name was Sams something) did not admit to having any discussion with Gary, and a few others accorded with him. I am not aware if anyone came forward claiming to have discussed things with Gary on the flight to Florida.

Although this negotiator guy kinda somewhat retracted his statement later by saying something like 'its all spun', it was difficult for me to base my writing on an issue where different opinions still exist. I know am supposed to take Gary's word for it, but still.

But I could have mentioned that discussion in the flight part in the last para or something and I will give a minor edit to the article to incorporate it.

Also am aware that I took a lot of liberty in constructing this whole article around a phone call.

Thanks for the read, David. I appreciate you taking the time to read it and leave a comment. Thanks a lot.

Introvert or Shy? Not sure. Bibliophile or Cine-buff? Both. Nethead or Story-writer? Still dunno. All I know is I want to write to live and I live to write.
