According to the prosecutor, the three men arrested in Caro, Michigan planned to attack the Mackinac Bridge:
Tuscola County prosecutors filed terrorism-related charges Saturday against three men they say bought dozens of cell phones Friday in Caro in a globally coordinated plot involving the Mackinac Bridge.
They charged brothers Adham Abdelhamid Othman, 21, and Louai Abdelhamied Othman, 23, along with their cousin, Maruan Awad Muhareb, 18, with identical counts of collecting material to support terrorist acts and surveillance of a vulnerable target with intent to commit terrorism.
Prosecutor Mark E. Reene wouldn’t confirm what evidence led him to believe the Dallas, Texas, men targeted the bridge that connects Michigan’s peninsulas.
“All I can say is that the Mackinac Bridge is the target at issue,” he said. “There’s reason to be concerned.”
Meanwhile, we learn that terrorists do, in fact, read the New York Times. From the Marietta Times:
Authorities say terrorist groups are illegally modifying the pre-paid cell phones to place untraceable international calls.
Now terrorists are working to evade the Terrorist Surviellance Program that they didn’t have any clue about before the New York Times blew the program’s cover with its NSA wiretapping article.
