This from Judicial Watch:
I don't know about you, but I sure as hell want to know what was in these cylinders and why these people were taken away by the FBI with Homeland Security in tow....Only three of the men (those NOT carrying cylinders) were entered into the border control's data system and now there appears to be no record of the two men who had possession of the cylinders.



Five young Middle Eastern men were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol this week in an Arizona town situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border, law enforcement and other sources told Judicial Watch.

Border Patrol agents spotted the men crossing a ranch property in the vicinity of Amado, which is located about 35 miles south of Tucson and has a population of 275. Two of the Middle Eastern men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, JW’s sources say, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. A multitude of federal agents descended on the property and the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the FBI.

Only three of the men’s names were entered in the Border Patrol’s E3 reporting system, which is used by the agency to track apprehensions, detention hearings and removals of illegal immigrants. E3 also collects and transmits biographic and biometric data including fingerprints for identification and verification of individuals encountered at the border. The other two men were listed as “unknown subjects,” which is unheard of, according to a JW federal law enforcement source. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told JW.

However, Special Agent Remus told JW that there is no record of this week’s incident in Amado and that he knew nothing about it. JW also put in a call to DHS headquarters, but received no response.

In the last year JW has broken a number of stories involving serious terrorist threats on the southern border that were disputed on the record by various Obama administration officials.

Would it surprise anyone if the FBI and homeland security were just their escorts?

Or, perhaps these cylinders contained something so deadly, that to make it known might result in national panic.

I suppose "national security" will prevent revealing what was actually found inside these cylinders.

Stainless steel cylinders in backpacks...could be anything really, most obvious would be a thermos.

We will just have to see if random terrorist attack has cylinders used. I could see them containing any number of NBCR materials. I agree if they were thermos or not threatening the FBI and DHS wouldn't have taken the 2 away out of 5. Now things are getting interesting.

Yeah you're right. Shouldn't jump the gun on things like this. If you see middle eastern men crossing the Mexican border into the states carting stainless steel cylinders it's best to assume they are just filled with coffee or a nice lobster bisque and just let them go their merry way.

Well isn't this fun?

Now we get to see how many times we can get lucky until the next SHTF scenario.

I'm still thinking about Lobster bisque.

There was no mention of the nationality of the men nor what happened to the 3 not taken into custody by DHS. Were they US citizens or not? Are the 3 still in border patrol custody? Also, they were not caught crossing the border. They were apprehended 30+ miles from the border. We have no way of knowing what was in the cylinders because the border patrol did not open them; instead they got "alarmed" and called DHS. Certainly there is nothing wrong with being vigilant, but the simplest answer is usually the correct one. In this case, it seems that the simplest answer is 5 guys went hiking/backpacking in the desert with stainless steel, cylindrical shaped thermoses containing water. Forgive me if I don't irrationally jump to conclusions based upon a sketchy report from a less that fairly balanced "news" source. I'll wait for additional details before getting my man panties in a wad, like any rational adult.

Spot on and also why they aren't releasing names.
These guys are being protected at some level of gov, probably DHS.
Weren't supposed to be caught.
Those pesky border patrol agents!
Drats!

How may times recently have nuclear materials suitable for dirty bombs been stolen south of the border?

Honestly, that was the first thing that came to mind (besides lobster bisque).
