Bomb Scare In South Carolina

(All emphases by Always On Watch)

From this source, via Blogs of War, which has much more, including updates:
Goose Creek - Two men are being held in the Berkeley County Detention Center after police find explosive making devices in their car. The quantity of explosive making materials in that vehicle is unclear. The FBI (website) reports that there is no known link to terrorism. The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office believes that among materials in the car's trunk were a bomb and bomb making materials that include chemicals, fuses, and igniters. The men 21-year-old Yousef Megahed and 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed were pulled over Saturday evening during a routine traffic stop near Myers Road and Highway 176.

Few details about the suspects are known at this time. They are believed to be students at a Florida college. They are of Middle Eastern descent and are not US citizens. Neither man has been charged, but charges are expected Monday. A press conference will be held in Berkeley County on Monday morning. Possession of unlawful explosives is among the potential charges. Officials are not at this time releasing any additional information. The Berkeley County Sheriff's office may confirm what exactly was found in that trunk during Monday's press conference....
Maybe the story has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism. On the other hand, several recent statements from Al Qaeda, including this from Muslim convert Adam Gadahn, have announced "a big surprise." It closes with these words:
"Soon -- God willing," written across the screen and repeated several times.
A video is available FNC. Laura Mansfield has additional information.
