"Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, and last month he was arrested in Goose Creek after authorities found four PVC pipes containing a mixture of potassium nitrate, kitty litter and sugar in his cars trunk.
"Mohamed told FBI agents he made the video to teach those persons in Arabic countries to defend themselves against the infidels invading their countries, according to federal court documents released late Tuesday.
"Specifically, he told the FBI the technology which he demonstrated in the tape was to be used against those who fought for the United States.
Someone using Mohameds laptop computer used the search words martyrdooms and suiciders to link to the video on YouTube.
Authorities found a toy remote-control boat, still in its box, and a partially dismantled digital watch at Youssef Samir Megaheds Tampa, Fla., home. They suspect that the items are the beginnings of a homemade bomb.
On Mohameds computer, authorities found a file titled Bomb Shock, which contains files about explosives, including detailed descriptions of TNT and of C-4, a military-grade plastic explosive.
The nitrate and sugar make sense but cat litter?
I have no knowledge why cat litter, but I assume it would be like a million bee bees hitting when the pipe bomb blue up.
Well, it it was used cat litter, it would be loaded with ammonia!
Then again it's probably just an inert ingredient to soak up an ammonia additive. Kinda keeping it safe until armed....
