Not much information is available on this yet. There is suppose to be a News Conference on this today. Here is what we have so far:
The mainstream media is being typically quiet about the National Origin of suspects being held in South Carolina that were found to have suspected IED’s (improvised explosive devices) in the trunk of the car.
Goose Creek – Berkeley County police pulled over a vehicle in a routine traffic stop near Meyers Road and Highway 176 around 6 p.m.Saturday.
The vehicle with Florida tags was driven by two men of Middle Eastern descent. Some type of explosives were found in the trunk. Those explosives were detonated after three o’clock this morning. Two men were arrested, and charges of possession of unlawful explosives are being prepared. Officials are not at this time releasing any additional information on the number of charges or types of explosive devices they found. They did say that neighbors were in no immediate dangers. The FBI (website) , South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, Goose Creek Police Department, and the ATF were on scene. Highway 176 in Goose Creek was shut down and has since reopened.
It would seem that the MSM is having difficulty these days spelling or saying the words, Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, & Islam when associated with Terrorist activities. Had it been one of us Joos, I’m sure the MSM and the Kos Kids would have been all over it like stink on a turd.
Goose Creek is home to the, which houses the U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig, a military prison where enemy combatants have been held.The car was heading west, away from Goose Creek, when it was pulled over about 7 miles from the sprawling Navy facility, Lombard said.An spokesmen said no more information would be released until Monday.Goose Creek, with a population of about 30,000, is about 20 miles north of Charleston.My guess is that these young lads were not out and about on a fishing trip.
Update: 08/06/2007 12:59pm
WIS News 10 spoke with officials at the Berkeley County Detention Center who said 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed and 21-year-old Yousef Megahed, both of Tampa, Florida, were the occupants of the car and are in police custody.
So far they have only been charged with possession of explosive devices, but the FBI is working to see if more crimes have been committed.
More coverage HERE!
I will update this throughout the day is more information flows in.
In the meantime, the MSM would like you to keep moving, there are no middle eastern men with bombs here………….
UPDATE 08/06/2007 2:39 pm
The unindicted Terrorist co-conspirators at CAIR had this to say about the joyriding Muslim yoots:
Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil rights organization for Muslims, said the men arrested are Youseff Megahed, 21, and Ahmed Mohamed, 24 – two University of South Florida students.
Family members told Bedier they think the materials were leftover fireworks Megahed kept in his trunk since July 4.
“Both of them are really naïve kids,” Bedier said.
He said Megahed is a permanent legal resident of the United States and Mohamed was the passenger. Mohamed’s legal status was not known. Bedier said police will not tell them why they’re being held without charges.
“There’s a lot of unanswered questions,” Bedier said. “If they didn’t do anything wrong they need to be released.”
