Breaking..suspicious device at port of miami..
Didn't they also report the containers were empty?
The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security were called to the scene, along with federal and local law enforcers, "in an abundance of caution," Goldberg said.
The truck's contents _ electrical automotive parts in a 40-foot container _ matched the driver's cargo manifest, she said.
Unfortunately, this DOESN'T mean they were up to SOMETHING ELSE when/if they got in..after all, the 9/11 hijackers hadn't broken any laws prior to their cold blooded murder of 3,000 people..
I'm not familiar with the geography of Miami but this headline is catching my eyes...
Gunmen With AK-47s Open Fire, Killing 1
Hmmm... didn't they bust 2 Iraqi's and a Lebanese guy in there earlier today?
Guy in truck lied and tried to get past checkpoint. Said nobody was in the truck. Was searched found 2 other guys, and manifest was forged but otherwise nothing found on them or in the truck.
Read about it on LGF.... last I read said it was a false alarm... mabye it wasn't.
I'd bet that was Gang/drug stuff....
Port of Miami Under Alert
An alert is in effect at the Port of Miami, after two Iraqis and a Lebanese man were found trying to slip past security in a cargo truck: 3 detained trying to enter Port of Miami.
MIAMI - Three men were caught trying to slip past a checkpoint in a cargo truck Sunday at the Port of Miami, said authorities, who increased security at the busy trade hub.
A port security officer became suspicious when the truck driver could not produce proper paperwork to enter the port about 8 a.m., Miami-Dade Police Detective Richard Williams said. The driver also indicated he was alone in the truck.
Officers searched the truck and found two men in the cab trying to hide, Williams said.
The three men two Iraqis and one Lebanese national who are legal permanent U.S. residents were taken into custody for questioning. They had not been arrested or charged by Sunday afternoon.
The men do not appear on any terrorist watch list, said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez.
A preliminary check of the truck showed its contents did not match the manifest, Gonzalez said. She declined to say what was in the truck, citing the investigation.
There is supposed to be a press conference about the situation at 1:45 pm Pacific time.
UPDATE at 1/7/07 1:50:14 pm:
If it turns out to be a false alarm, expect the Council on American Islamic Relations to jump all over it as another case of the dreaded Islamophobia.
UPDATE at 1/7/07 2:20:11 pm:
Yep, false alarm. Nothing unusual in the truck. The countdown to CAIRs claims of victimhood begins now.
You obviously don't play Polish Bingo.
Technical flight restriction just put into place...........good bye to the live coverage.
Why are these guys driving a truck into the Port of Miami if they live in Dearborn? Were to auto parts manufactured in Dearborn?
airspace restrictions now in effect over Port of Miami..
Oops, cruise interrupted..
Shouldn't this be in breaking news.
Sounds rather series (sic).
I'm starting to get the feeling this isn't a false alarm.
Any idea how big this trace was???
We're going to have to wait hours, just like yesterday.
I don't care what they are saying -- I think this is all connected and they're not telling us.
Me too. Doesn't appear to be a misunderstanding this time.
