Dutch Hero

I was wondering why the news media hadn't turned the passengers of Northwest Flight 253 into media stars, "heroes," as we like to say. You know, the passengers who stopped Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and his underwear from blowing up the plane. Turns out the guy who "threw himself" onto Abdulmutallab and found the explosive device was Dutch, not American.

Also I think he was some kind of freelance videographer, so he may be media savvy and/or opinionated in a way that makes him unfriendly to the standard procedure.
