As predicted, Glenn Beck’s rally did indeed foment terrorism, and faster than we originally thought it would. Somebody better stop these white people who are unhappy with the health care bill before somebody gets hurt:

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.
[...]
In addition, officials said, al Soofi was found to be carrying $7,000 in cash and a check of his luggage found a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, three cell phones taped together, several watches taped together, a box cutter and three large knives. Officials said there was no indication of explosives and he and his luggage were cleared for the flight from Birmingham to Chicago O’Hare.

If only people wouldn’t oppose building a mosque near ground zero, understandable backlashes like this could be avoided. Damn those teabaggers.

Update: But of course — Detroit relatives claim it’s all just a misunderstanding.

I don’t know about you, but I also tape my cell phone to a bottle of Pepto Bismol when I travel — it’s just common sense:

    The RNC filled those suitcases with boxcutters, cash, and taped-together cell phones.

    I love the quote from one of these guys "We would be the first to report anything suspicious." Yeah, and every time a guy slaughters his family, the neighbors always say that he was "the last guy you would expect to do that", "the nicest guy in the world".

    Get in the car and watch your head.

    Bravo to the Dutch police on catching these guys but the fact that they got on the plane in America with fake bombs is terrifying. "The system worked" my eye.

    Fortunately, we have a tax-cheat and violent thug trying to build a community center (don't call it a mosque) at Ground Zero.

    Who could refuse an extended hand of good fellowship and interfaith understanding from this guy? I'm looking for a word here… no… not lovable… try again.

    What has become of our society when an average Smith and Jones from Detroit can’t travel to see the Ann Frank House?

    If their plane were to explode, it would be SO shocking….and unexpected!

    Didn't you read that this is a cultural practice of taping items together that are then given to specific relatives back home. Sheesh. What a cultural insensitive dolt you are. [/sarc]
