NORAD, we're having cocktails

There are some things that an air marshal just won’t do.
Dealing with drunk passengers is tops on the list.
Not only does it compromise their undercover status, it also puts them at risk of being attacked by a terrorist while diverted by an inebriated flyer.
As many marshals have explained it to me, a drunken passenger is the airline’s problem, not the Federal Air Marshal Service.
So with that in mind, judge this action:

The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, launched two F-16 fighter jets briefly Friday after the pilot of a commercial flight reported a drunken passenger locked in a lavatory.

Yeah, that happened.

What next, Navy SEALS launching a counter-attack from within the commodes?
