TAMPA -- Youssef Megahed, detained by federal authorities on explosives charges, is revoking any permission he gave to government agents to search his home or anything else.
Assistant Federal Public Defender Adam Allen, Megahed's attorney, filed a notice with the court today withdrawing any consent to search items taken from Megahed after his arrest on Aug. 4.
"The filing of this notice is not an admission by the defendant that he has previously given voluntarily consent but is designed to put the government on legal notice that, to the extent the defendant has previously given any voluntary consent to search, that consent is withdrawn and revoked," Allen wrote.

Thank God our enemies are stupid.
“I’m not admitting that I said you could in the first place... but I’m withdrawing my permission...”
Irrelevant, if they have enough to arrest they have enough to get a warrant in most cases.
So now the Feds get a warrant. Big deal
Isn’t it a little late?
“We’ve seen the evidence and the damage done. A little part of it in everyone. Every terrorist is like the setting sun.”
"I am not admitting I said 'yes,' and I want you to act as though I did not."
Wouldn’t they have a recording or written statement as to his permission?
Has he revoked his statement that they were celebrating a birthday on the beach with “firecrackers” too?
THIS is the wretched double-speak world in which Billy Jeff Clintoon left for the rest of us to endure for all our days. I dare suggest this type of mindless word-drool was invented by the worthless lout himself.
If they had permission in the past and haven’t yet searched everything, the big question is: what’s taken so long? Two and a half months seems like plenty of time.
I didn’t do it and I’ll never do it again.
Think of it this way: I can give you consent to raid my fridge, but I'll have second thoughts if you invite your friends.
The red glow reflected in the clouds? The warm breeze? The wistful recollection of the day, that are now just memories?
No, just no. It’s lawyerspeak, and probably dates back to the Norman Conquest.
That makes it sound even weirder. I bet they already have seen what they took mega-head.
