They may not be calling it terrorism because the "act of" wasn't commited, and they would need to show intent.
He should be locked up either for his own safety as hes a potential Darwin award candidate or the publics safety if he intended to detonate it.

The FBI are lying. Its blindingly obvious he's a terrorist. A stick of dynamite as a souvenir? lol come on! I suppose the detonator was a souvenir too

Even if it turned out to be true, I wouldn't be surprised if he DID forget he had it. I used to be amazed at the things people forgot they put in their bag. The head of Ion Track Instruments, before they were bought by GE, put a small strip of PETN in his bag, as a demonstration (they make explosives detectors) and 10 trips later was reorganizing his bag and found it in there. Completely forgot about it. I've seen dummy grenades, bullets, all kinds of things in bags that people forgot they had in there.
