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.

Nothing to see here... move along.
Toss them to the lions.
Must be Mennonites. Nope, sign of motivation here...
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?
Probably just starting a new cell phone service named Hate America.
Dearborn seems to be the Damascus of the West. I never hear this addressed in the radio real-estate show, but razorwire around a town can't be good for home values.
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.
I am going to DC on Friday and then flying to Europe after that. I am starting to get a little nervous.

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.
