Cell Phone Terror Cell Walks


The last charges are dropped against the three Texas men arrested in Michigan in August (in the wake of the London "liquid bombs on a plane" plot) for having a bunch of cell phones and pictures of the Mackinac bridge. The other cell phone terror cell arrest that week was also a fizzle. In a complete coincidence, the men involved in both arrests had names such as Osama Sabhi Abulhassan and Maruan Muhareb.

I briefly surveyed the sorry history of post-9/11 terror cell busts as part of our five-years-later roundup of what 9/11 has meant for America.
