It seems that Russell Crowe is claiming that the FBI warned him prior to 11 Sep 01 that Al Qaeda planned to kidnap him and other celebrities as part of a "cultural de-stabilization" plot. More info can be found at http://jam.canoe.ca/Movies/2005/03/09/955154-ap.html or at the Australian issue of GQ. Weird I know. I know my cultural world wouldn't collapse based on the absence of Mr. Crowe, however I do have a list of celebrities to suggest as candidates for kidnapping. So what do folks here think, a shameless publicity ploy or a real threat?
