The Associated Press ^ | 08/09/2006

Posted on 08/10/2006 12:39:30 AM PDT by Rumple4

MARIETTA, Ohio - Two men were charged Wednesday with money laundering in support of terrorism after authorities said they found airplane passenger lists and information on airport security checkpoints in their car.

Deputies stopped Osama Sabhi Abulhassan, 20, and Ali Houssaiky, 20, both of Dearborn, Mich., on a traffic violation Tuesday. They found the flight documents along with $11,000 cash and 12 phones in the car, said Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks.

Wow. 2 20 year old Arabs with 11 grand, a dozen cell phones, and maps of security checkpoints.

Nothing to see here... move along.

There was a report last week of suspicion about people purchasing multiple phones at one time. Now, these guys have 12 phones!? Why so many phones?

They make really good remote detonators with just a little work.

Gee, wonder why they had to buy 600 phones? Couldn't be because they're being helped by the evil msm.

Now, what's this about Walmart?

It does seem to be Jihad Central. It is curious to me with the Lackawanna Six and these guys and the Egyptians who were heading to Montana and disappeared they all seem to be favoring spots near the Canadian border.

I wonder if it is for quick exits or for bringing stuff more easily over the border.

Foreigner Found With Prepaids, Cash In Murrysville Is Held By Feds

POSTED: 11:05 am EDT August 7, 2006
UPDATED: 2:39 pm EDT August 7, 2006

GREENSBURG, Pa. -- A man from the Republic of Georgia is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison after he and another man from that country were found with 15 prepaid cell phones and $4,200 in cash, police said.

The Tribune-Review reported that Malkhaz Zakutashvili, 53, was held through the federal Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Murrysville police said the federal agency told police not to hold the second man, Zurabi Maisuradze, 25.

Police said the men were questioned just before 8 p.m. Saturday because their van, which did not have a permanent registration plate, was stopped in a lane of traffic in the Franklin Plaza parking lot.

The men said they were immigrants, but each displayed Michigan driver's licenses, police said.

Zakutashvili told police he was in the country illegally, Tappe said. Maisuradze claimed to have a visa, but he said he had forgotten to bring it with him.

The prepaid cell phones, which the men had recently purchased in Monroeville and Murrysville, were found inside the van. Also in the van were a laptop computer and global-positioning software.

A bomb-sniffing dog found nothing suspicious in the van, which had no seats or wall paneling inside, police said.

The men said they were on the way to Philadelphia and had visited a local drug store to buy batteries, police said.

Two years ago as we pulled up to a stop light we noticed two men photographing and taking pictures of the power station in Redondo Beach, CA.

One looked to be from the Middle-East and the other from the Phillipines. They were up on top of the hill looking down on the power plant.

We reported it. The police came and seemed very interested.

The ACLU will claim they were planning a vacation and search was illegal. After all Muslims need many cell phones to keep track of which wife is calling.

from the story:

Abulhassan and Houssaiky admitted buying about 600 phones in recent months at stores in southeast Ohio, said sheriff's Maj. John Winstanley. The men said they sold the phones to someone in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb.

WTF are they doing with 600 phones?? And passenger lists and checkpoint info?? Funny how the AP NEVER MENTIONS THEY ARE MUSLIM.

Somehow, if they were militant Baptists OR members of Mel Gibson's or Pat Robertson's church, I bet that would be at the top of the story.

geez... wonder if this is the ali arrested:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/preps/football/2003-10-30-fordson-high-fast_x.htm

Dearborn (pop. 97,775), adjacent to Detroit, has an estimated 30,000 Muslims, who moved there largely to work in the auto industry. Stergalas says 95% of Fordson's 2,300-student enrollment is Muslim.

Co-captain Ali Houssaiky, a fullback and Division I prospect, says some of his teammates will break their fasts today and Friday. "We've worked very hard to reach (the playoffs)," he says. They'll make up the missed days later, which is allowable.

"I'll get up at 4 a.m. to eat breakfast," he says. "It's an awesome feeling playing on this team where everyone understands what this sacrifice means."

Houssaiky, whose parents were born in Lebanon, says players speak Arabic on the field, giving Fordson an advantage. "The teams think we're mumbling" when they change plays.

Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport has warned passengers not to bring any liquids aboard the plane. Banned items include bottled water, cologne, contact lens solutions, lotion and hair gel.

This might affect your trip too.
