It seems three, ahem, Middle Eastern men (transaltion: Muslims) were caught in Michigan with 1,000 cell phones. Michigan home of Dearbornistan. It's morning in America!
Three Middle Eastern Men Found With 1000 Cell Phones
Around 1:00am August 11th three men purchased cell phones from the Wal-Mart store on M-81 near the corner of M-24 in Caro. Wal-Mart places a limit on the number of cell phones that can be purchased at once, that number is three. The three men allegedly bought 80 by purchasing them three at time so that an alert wouldn't be triggered by the cash register. They also paid cash (hat tip CPO)
UPDATE: Over at the Strata- sphere: "The arrests pertaining to men driving country roads in order to buy
up untraceable cell phones are exposing details that clearly indicate we
terrorists activity here in the US."
The case of the three Texas men arrested on terrorism charges with hundreds of cell phones is going to be one to watch. Prosecutors are not shying away from their claim these men were part of an effort to take down a major bridge:
Tuscola County prosecutors have filed terrorism-related charges against three Texas men they say bought dozens of cell phones Friday in Caro in a globally coordinated plot to bring down the Mackinac Bridge.
They charged brothers Adham Abdelhamid Othman, 21, and Louai Abdelhamied Othman, 23, along with their cousin, Maruan Awad Muhareb, 18, with identical counts of collecting material to support terrorist acts and surveillance of a vulnerable target with intent to commit terrorism.
Prosecutor Mark E. Reene wouldn’t confirm what evidence led him to believe the Dallas men targeted the bridge.
“All I can say is that the Mackinac Bridge is the target at issue,” he said. “There’s reason to be concerned.”
We seem to have a major threat ongoing here in the US. Clearly, as I said earlier, the places these people were driving to purchase these phones were the kinds of places people went to try and be undetected. And as details come out it is clear that the actions of these people were to try and avoid detection:
Three Palestinian-born suspects are being held on terrorism charges after a Wal-Mart clerk in rural Tuscola County MI alert authorities that the trio had purchased some 80 cell phones. The cell phones were purchased three at a time so as not to tip-off the store, which places a three-phone limit on customers. The cell phones were purchased with cash. The purchases were made at around 2 a.m.
