    Two Men on United Flight from Chicago Arrested on 'Preparation of a Terrorist Attack'

    Two men taken off a Chicago-to-Amsterdam United Airlines flight in the Netherlands have been charged by Dutch police with "preparation of a terrorist attack," U.S. law enforcement officials tell ABC News.

    For a second I was nervous, thinking it would be a Tea Party member or a member of a right wing militia.

    Not.

    My bet was whether one would have Abdul or Hussein in his name. Lost both.

    What do you think their parents choice for their name would mean?

    That was a funny you pulled with the Abdul, Hussein remark.
    This could be serious though. The way I'm reading it is the attack would have been successful if it hadn't been a dry run.



    U.S. officials said the two appeared to be travelling with what were termed "mock bombs" in their luggage. "This was almost certainly a dry run, a test," said one senior law enforcement official.

    Well, I guess with names like John Smith and Joe Jones, that whole myth that most terrorists are Islamic males just went down the tubes....

    I'm so glad we have fool proof security at all of our airports..... imagine what could have happened if they had gotten box cutters aboard like the 9/11 hijackers did and not just cell phones and Pepto-Bismol.

    Muslim terrorists have established enough of a reputation for seeking innovative ways to deliver explosives, that there is probable cause to really look into it and do a pretty thorough investigation.

    what, we can't pack this in our luggage anymore?:
    a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, three cell phones taped together, several watches taped together, a box cutter and three large knives
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
