Michigan Muslim and pal charged by Dutch police with “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.

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.

The men were identified as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi, of Detroit, MI, and Hezem al Murisi, the officials said. A neighbor of al Soofi told ABC News he is from Yemen.”

Detroit, Michigan, folks. What else is in Detroit, Michigan?

Oh, yeah, this:

More and more “homegrown” terrorists are going to be in the news, mark my words.

And remember: it’s not a phobia if the threat is real.
