C4 is a type of plastic explosive. Explosive sniffing dogs often have false alarms, but there was a suspicious incident at a Miami port yesterday.

For some reason this damned DNS out here where I work won't let me get to Foxnews.com most of the time. I suspect it's a plot to keep us from reading the real news..... but aside from that, can anyone post any more information on this as soon as they hear it (I don't have access to live TV, Radio.. umm any sort of RF, or anything else either. LOL)

Charges Dropped in Miami Port Scare

Jan 08 1:13 PM US/Eastern


By ADRIAN SAINZ
Associated Press Writer






MIAMI (AP) -- A judge Monday dropped all charges against three Middle Eastern men whose miscommunication with guards at the Port of Miami had sparked a terrorism scare.
Officials initially said that the three men were caught trying to slip past a security checkpoint in a cargo truck on Sunday and that the driver had said he was alone. Federal investigators and a bomb squad were called in, and authorities eventually determined the freight was harmless.



Even though Miami-Dade Police said the problem was a miscommunication, driver Amar Al Hadad, 28, was still charged with resisting an officer without violence, and his passengers, Hussain Al Hadad, 24, and Hassan El Sayed, 20, were charged with trespassing.

Court records show a judge dismissed all the charges on Monday and the men were released.

The three are permanent U.S. residents from Iraq and Lebanon who live in Dearborn, Mich.

Miami-Dade County police declined to comment on the judge's decision. Authorities said no federal charges were expected.

The scare started when a port security officer became suspicious because the truck's driver couldn't produce proper paperwork during a routine inspection to enter the port Sunday morning, said Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Nancy Goldberg.

"Due to a miscommunication between the gate security personnel and the truck driver, we believe there was a discrepancy in the number of people in the vehicle," Goldberg said. "This, and the fact that one of the individuals did not have any form of ID, raised our level of concern."

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.

The three men did not appear on any terrorist watch list, said Barbara Gonzalez, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman.

The Port of Miami is among the nation's busiest. More than 3.6 million cruise ship passengers traveled through in 2005, making it the world's top terminal for cruise vacationers. Its seaport services more than 30 ocean carriers, which delivered more than 1 million cargo containers there in 2005.

Good morning.
"What is C4 bump"?

"That's what you get when the shrapnel hits you flat side first and you're far enough away to survive."

Or when you put your claymores only 10' out and try to hide behind a small anthill.

What is it with these Florida judges?

Does anyone have this judge's name, out of curiosity? This is a pretty long news article with virtually no real information in it. Typical AP.

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..

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.

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 CAIR’s claims of victimhood begins now.
