No problem: no terrorism

In two recent cases, local police authorities, working with the FBI, have said that suspicious incidents were not terror-related:

-- An Egyptian using a Sudanese passport builds a drone that can carry more than 600 pounds of explosives. He is doing this in Calverton, Long Island, near the firing range where the terrorists who subsequently tried to blow up the Twin Towers in 1993 practiced their skills. When asked, he says he wants to market his invention to DOD. He had not yet broken any U.S. law. See Jihad Watch here.

-- A Somali enters the U.S. from Ottawa, travels to Denver, and is discovered dead in a hotel room with a jar of cyanide crystals just days before the Democratic Convention. His sister says he was a schizophrenic, the Denver police that he was not a terrorist. See here.

Isn't it a relief to know there's no problem?
