1 of 11 missing Egypt students found in MN: 2 more students reportedly picked up in New Jersey
MSNBC ^ | 08/09/06 | NBC News Staff

Posted on 08/09/2006 12:19:34 PM PDT by mojito

One of 11 missing Egyptian students has been picked up in Minneapolis, Minn., NBC News’ Pete Williams reported and the FBI confirmed Wednesday.

Local police in New Jersey also believe they have apprehended two more of the Egyptian students. Federal agents, however, have not yet confirmed the identities of these students.

Eslam Ibrahim Mohamed El-Dessouki, 21, was arrested "without incident" by FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko said.

El-Dessouki is being held on an administrative immigration violation because he did not turn up for his monthlong exchange program at Montana State University, Kolko said.

They should pick up whoever they are associating with as well. Of course the ACLU and the entire democrat party won't have that.

They haven't given much in the way of details as to what the little scamps were up to but so far it doesn't look to encouraging. Best to make an example of them.

Has anyone called the ACLU yet? It was only a "small" rule that was broken = they weren't doing anything wrong.

I wonder what the reason for dispersment was. I bet one wanted to visit the "Mall of America" and two others heard that Jersey was a beautiful place to vistit, afterall it is the "Garden State."

The fact that they have split up into different states is enough additional evidence to me to think that these guys really are terrorists.

Hmmm...no mention of the "M" word anywhere in the article. I'm sure the group of them are made up of a diverse religious background. Some of them are probably Christians, some of them Buddhists, maybe an atheist or two...

This shows how stupid and naive our civil service workforce has become, since hiring has become based on quotas and political correctness.

Or near targets.

New York (NJ)
Chicago (Minn)

I'd say they're going for the Sears Tower and either the Tunnels or Subway/Path.

Idk, somehow I think these guys are terrorist wannabee's. They don't seem to be all that smart or good at hiding themselves.

We should still hang them though because they are wannabee's

"This is not going to look good on their transcripts."

Actually, the ACLU contends that the FBI and ICE agents are at fault. I wonder if the ACLU would take up a case to get an absentee failure removed from a transcript...wouldn't be suprising.

Two picked up in NJ..

Why would they have left NYC to go to NJ if they were just "out on the town to have fun"?

I wonder if they were found in Newark NJ... hmmm

For my own sanity, I'm just going to give them the benefit of the doubt and convince myself that they don't actually BELIEVE what they say, but are saying it to placate the likes of the ACLU and CAIR.

Either he's trying to keep the public calm (you know those anti-Muslim witch hunts are likely to break out any day now) or he's one of those psychic FBI agents.

There are a lot of NJ diners/restaurants that hire middle eastern folk under the table to work in the kitchen or as waiters if they speak english. Also the majority of them are Egyptians from my experience. I found them to be very clannish and the vast majority of them do not like Americans one bit.

NO threat.

This is what is screwed up. I bet there won't be any applause for a job well-done; however, if these guys would've pulled something off, the fingers would already be pointing at Washington.

Really? There are 9 mosques in Minnesota, one of the lowest numbers in the USA. Try California, where there are over 200.

Give it a break or get your facts right, please.

The Case of the Bennigan’s Caesar Salad

Excerpts:

“Did Caesar salad kill a healthy teen?” asks a headline in today’s Newark Star-Ledger.

(snip)

- She ate a Caesar salad and drank a Dr Pepper.

- Tara became violently ill. Within two days, she was hospitalized with kidney failure, apparently the result of food poisoning that left her severely dehydrated.

- Lawyers for Bennigan’s deny the allegations and say there is no evidence to suggest the meal she ate caused her illness.

(/snip)

What is no longer available on the web is Benigan's was using illegal immigrants.

This story died before it got legs.

Tara, a 16 year old is still dead.
