FBI: Egyptian Students Had Fireworks, Not Bombs


www.wyff4.com

TAMPA, Fla. -- The FBI said this week that two Egyptian college students arrested last year close to the Navy weapons station in Charleston, S.C., were not carrying explosives as they were charged with doing.

The University of South Florida engineering students have been in jail since sheriff's deputies found what they called bomb-making materials in their car during a traffic stop.

But federal investigators said that Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, 26, and Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, were carrying low-grade fireworks, which is what they told deputies who stopped them at the time.

Well this is a fine kettle of fish. Once again people, guilty of nothing it seems other than being middle eastern are arrested and charged on trumped up charges.

It seems that is administration is doing nothing more than going after people to distract the media away from the fact that when it comes to actually protecting us, they are doing nothing at all.

Do you remember the video of one of these guys visiting his brother in jail..?

He wiggled his fingers and half the country started taping up their windows thinking it was a secret signal to Al-Quaida.

This country has become a sad, paranoid collection of fat wussies. Its pathetic.

When we go around profiling people and charging and prosocuting them on trumped up or non existant charges... we do nothing more than provide our enemies with "proof" of what they say about us is true.
