This is rather interesting, especially with the thwarted attack coming from Heathrow today, as well as the missing Egyptian students...



CNN

MARIETTA, Ohio (AP) -- Two men were charged Wednesday with money laundering in support of terrorism after authorities said they found airplane passenger lists and information on airport security checkpoints in their car.

Deputies stopped Osama Sabhi Abulhassan, 20, and Ali Houssaiky, 20, both of Dearborn, Michigan, on a traffic violation Tuesday. They found the flight documents along with $11,000 cash and 12 phones in the car, said Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks.

Prosecutor Susan Vessels declined to say how the phones, cash or flight information involved terrorism.

Abulhassan and Houssaiky admitted buying about 600 phones in recent months at stores in southeast Ohio, said sheriff's Maj. John Winstanley. The men said they sold the phones to someone in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb.


600 phones!? Imagine, 600 phones placed on 600 phone activated bombs around the nation. 600 targets, maybe less if multiple bombs were to be used for single targets (like stadiums, skyscrapers, universities, etc). Even so, that could still easily be several hundred targets around the nation.

I'm glad they caught these guys.

First shoebombs. Then exploding beer coolers. Then explosive soda pop bottle bombs. Now cell phones are potential terrorist items.
Is there nothing sacred anymore?
