    Two Mideastern men were arrested with bomb making materials, including explosives, in their trunk. They are not citizens.

    Near Charleston, SC. Two college students, 24, and 21, from Florida, non-citizens. Being held at the Berkeley Correctional Center. They were near a Naval Weapons Station.

    Bomb scare closes S.C. highway
    GOOSE CREEK, S.C., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A South Carolina highway was closed for hours Saturday night while authorities used a bomb squad robot to search a car.

    Although U.S. Highway 176 in Goose Creek near Charleston, S.C., was closed for more than four hours, the FBI said there was "no immediate threat," The (Charleston) Post and Courier reported. More than a dozen police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance surrounded the gray sedan being searched, the newspaper said.

    An FBI spokeswoman said the federal agency was trying to determine if a crime had been committed. One witness told the newspaper the incident appeared to have started about 7 p.m. when police making a routine traffic stop and were talking with one man who might have been of Middle Eastern descent. The road was still blocked by authorities after 11 p.m.

    CA, I can imagine. Depending on what they had, this news could be the first sign of a large terrorist network, here in the U.S., planning on striking.

    I'm really anxious to hear what they were carrying in their trunk.

    I hope this is just a dumbass----------not the real deal, I guess what is in the trunk will help decipher between the two choices

    They said they were ten miles from the Naval Weapons Center. The police found one already made bomb, plus fuses, and igniters, to build more. Plus they had chemicals of some type. Mohamed Ahmed & Yousef

    Now the FBI is defusing the story, saying the men had enough stuff to make good fireworks, but not bombs. Does that make everyone feel better??

    Not me.

    I'm starting to feel like a mushroom already.

    I figure they think the less we know, the better off we will be.

    I wonder if they would release these guys just so they could surveil every call, or computer connection, they make, in the hope of connecting others with them??

    I would like to know what the police found; they said they found bomb making materials. Would they have misidentified what they found??

    maybe.....I think it just depends on what they think they actually came across---- serious, or not so serious-
    I think they would not tell us exactly what they found- and that might be ok too-:confused:

    Yes, that makes me feel so much better people would hide from the truth that we have people everyday that want to blow us up! C'mon, People! Let's get to reality here. We should be afraid in such a way that we realize they ARE out to get us in ways we know nothing about, but the government does and altho they tell us bits n pieces...nothing is specific as to threats really. It DOES make me feel better that LE just happened upon them and found what seems like a "dry run" or perhaps more. WTG!

    I will also add...I am ALL FOR RACIAL PROFILING when it comes to known groups that we absolutely already KNOW want to kill us. I would prefer to be considered racist than have my family blown up...you?!

    MONCKS CORNER — Two Florida students accused of having pipe bombs in the trunk of their car when they were pulled over in Goose Creek are "confused and scared," their attorney said Monday.

    Yousseff Megahed, 21, and Ahmed Mohamed, 26, both Egyptian citizens, were calm and polite in Berkeley County bond court. They were charged Monday with carrying explosive devices, which is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
