GOOSE CREEK UPDATE:

PVC pipe filled with homemade “low-grade explosive mixture” and a videotape instruction for turning a remote-controlled toy car into a detonator were among the items found in the car driven by two University of South Florida students arrested in South Carolina and now facing federal explosives charges, according to a federal prosecutor. . . . They also found a laptop computer in the men’s car. On the laptop they found a 12-minute video on which a man shows how to turn a radio-controlled toy car into a remote-controlled detonator, Hoffer said.

Mohamed admits that it is him in the video, although you cannot see his face, Hoffer said. In the video, Mohamed said that he was showing how to make such a device “to save one who wants to be a martyr for another battle,” Hoffer said.

Mohamed also makes reference to a toy boat in the video.

The FBI seized a toy remote controlled boat in a box from Megahed’s home.

The plot thickens. (Via Michelle Malkin).

UPDATE: A cautionary note. The point is well-taken. I suspect that If CAIR weren’t defending them, people might be slower to assume their guilt. But given CAIR’s track record, that’s not entirely irrational.
