I knew there was something fishy about this:

Two Egyptian students at the University of South Florida were indicted Friday for carrying explosive materials across states lines and one of them was charged with teaching the other how to use them for violent reasons.

Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, 24, an engineering graduate student and teaching assistant at the Tampa-based university, faces terrorism charges for teaching and demonstrating how to use the explosives.

He and Youssef Samir Megahed, 21, an engineering student, were stopped for speeding August 4 in Goose Creek, South Carolina, where they have been held on state charges.

The two men were stopped with pipe bombs in their car near a Navy base in South Carolina where enemy combatants have been held. They were held on state charges while the FBI continued to investigate whether there was a terrorism link.

Mohamed was charged with distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction, which is a terrorism-related statute, a Justice Department official said. The crime carries a maximum of 20 years in prison.

20 years sounds like a good start and the U.S. Navy brig in Goose Creek sounds like an ideal spot to house them.

    Don’t insult my intelligence by suggesting that these terrorist wanna-bees are just naive students! That’s what they want us to believe. If you haven’t figured out by now that almost all of the middle eastern cultures view we Americans as stupid, ego driven idiots! These two should get at least 20 years! We need to send a message that we are not stupid and if you think of coming here to commit crime and terrorism you will be jailed!
