Two of John Edwards' bumper-sticker slogans (is it politically incorrect to call them accused terrorists?) were arrested after a traffic stop near Goose Creek, SC (hat tip: MND).
Forbes offers possible insight into the location of the vehicle:
|Goose Creek [is] home to the Naval Weapons Station. The station houses the U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig, a military prison where enemy combatants have been held...|
No word on whether CAIR is rushing a legal team to South Carolina in order to mount a defense. MND adds: "My God, do you realize what this means? South Carolina police are profiling!" Or maybe there was a suspicious bumper sticker on the vehicle.
On a more serious note, a commenter at Flopping Aces asserts:
|176 leads right into the Naval Weapons Station. It isn't military families at risk. NWS is the home of 2 sub squadrons and also the storage depot for our nukes and up to 60 million lbs. of conventional ordnance.|
A nuclear storage depot? This recalls a statement by Hassan Abbasi, one of Iran's top military strategists, in 2005.
One can't help but wonder whether there is a link between this bizarre incident and Abbasi's diatribe.
Perhaps John Edwards is right, because there's definitely more than enough bumper-sticker material here. Hey, I've got an idea, let's help the Democrats make it even harder for the U.S. to wiretap terrorists! Maybe that will help!
Update: Dan Riehl provides names and pictures.
They sound like militant Quakers to me.
|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, the occupants of the car, are still in police custody... The Berkeley County Sheriff's Department tells WIS News 10 the two men are not US citizens.|
Update II: Dan Riehl, doing yeoman's work on this story, points to an ABC News 4 report that "...[t]he men had at least one ready to go bomb and bomb making materials that include chemicals."
Let's see. A possible chemical terrorist attack organized by what may be a cadre of illegal aliens... I know what to do... let's leave the border wide open and prevent the government from listening in on terrorists!
