Something about this story seems strange to me. This person was either incredibly stupid, or their is something more sinister involved here. I don't have much else to say at this point as I am waiting until more information comes out to pass judgement. So I will give it to all of the wise minds here to disect.

The owner of a Lake Orion sub shop is being held on charges he tried to illegally buy explosive materials, although investigators are unsure of his intent.


Alaa Manuel Qasawa is charged with manufacturing explosive materials without a license and attempting to receive stolen explosive materials through interstate commerce. A detention hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday.


According to a criminal complaint unsealed in U.S. District Court in Detroit Thursday, Qasawa tried to place a phone order Aug. 3 with a Scranton, Pa., company for 50 blasting caps and fuses used to set off explosives. He also asked how to make metal replica grenade bodies functional, according to the complaint.

Wait... his name was Alaa Manuel Qasawa, and he was trying to buy blasting caps?

With all the damn money we spend on "Homeland Security", I hope like hell that would have thrown a red flag somewhere!

Just think about all the old ladies and children we had to strip search inorder to find this guy!

Good Job DHS!
