This is a tale of two wacky kids out for a night of fun and fireworks. They were stopped by the cops for speeding and were found, not far from a U.S. naval base with explosives and pipe bombs in their car. CAIR immediately issued a press release saying that they were victims of 'racial profiling'. And news soon came out that the pipe bombs were merely 'fireworks'. Just two fellows out for a joy ride and some fun.
Instead of being victims of racial profiling, it seems one of the suspects was a victim of his own private PR machine. News comes today that he issued a the YouTube video that was yanked for showing how to detonate a remote-control car.
From the Washington PostLike many in the jihad game, the man in the video was an martyrdom advocate--as long as martyrdom involved someone else.
MIAMI -- On a video posted to YouTube.com this summer, a man speaking Egyptian-accented Arabic instructed viewers how to convert a remote-controlled toy car into a bomb detonator.
The 12-minute lesson was referenced on the popular video-sharing Web site under the search terms "detonator from a distance," "suiciders" and "martyrdoms."
A detonator could "save one who wants to be a martyr for another day, another battle," the man told viewers, according to federal prosecutors.It's looking harder and harder to portray the video-making, bomb-instructing Mohamed as merely a man with a taste for fireworks and fast cars: a victim of the fascist police guilty of racial profiling. But one bets that that won't deter CAIR.
Last month, authorities identified the instructor as Mohamed Ahmed, 24, a graduate engineering student at the University of South Florida. An Egyptian national, he'd been stopped for speeding in South Carolina on Aug. 4, then arrested with a fellow student for allegedly carrying four pipe bombs in the trunk.
From the Washington Post
The company [YouTube] would not say how long the detonator video was available on the site; how many times, if any, it was viewed; or whether the company took it down as part of normal policing based on viewer tips or whether it was removed at the FBI's request.
