I guess they haven't hushed that up as much as they thought :shakehead: Everyone is trying their hardest to keep the "religion of peace" from getting any unwarranted bad press. :roll:

for those of you that don't know, there is several Navy nuke reactors at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek.

Used to live in Summerville just up the road.

I wonder...... Really out to do harm or just wanting to make noise and blow up beer cans? Apparently, the feds think it's the former. Maybe I'm too trusting but I remember making some really big "firecrackers" with my buddies in high school that would almost certainly get us arrested today.

If we were caught with them...

We need an "exploding" smiley.

So, let us hear the suspects in their own words, to determine whether this incident was in the cause of jihad and martyrdom, or simply, as Macktee eloquently suggests, "to make noise and blow up beer cans?"

A laptop computer deputies found when they pulled over two University of South Florida students in South Carolina contained a video made by one of the men showing how to use a toy to detonate a bomb remotely, a federal prosecutor said Friday.

On that video, the student, Ahmed Mohamed, said the detonator could “save one who wants to be a martyr for another day, another battle,†Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Hoffer said.
The prosecution rests.

Prosecutors said Megahed also had “multiple Egyptian passports†and went to Sears in late July to get more passport-sized photos. There were two passports for Megahed with two different names, Hoffer said.

Well, it still sounds perfectly innocent to me.

After all, we have several college students on this forum and, I'm sure, all of them have done a few (perfectly innocent) things that could be misconstrued by suspicious people...

And, don't forget, these young men are almost certainly deeply religious based on the info found on the laptop. Consequently, they're probably more than just a little bit naive about how people might interpret their actions. Perfectly innocent...... until proven guilty!

Come on! It's not like they had drugs in the car, just a few explosive devices... What possible harm could come from that?

MP, I believe you're simply too suspicious and cynical. That's sad. You should be happy and carefree. Lighten up and enjoy life! Be more like Ramm!!! (OK, maybe not that last one...) I'm sure, in due course, these fine young men will be fully and completely exonerated.

Or, they'll be locked away for 20 years...

:jail:

I don't know, Mack. I just assumed it was explodey fun time! until I got to the part MP quoted, which made me change my mind. I know cops are tricky, but I don't think he could've said that and meant it in any innocent way.

Everything I've read leads me to believe they intended to carry out some form of attack. How did they just happen to be near Goose Creek with bomb making materials?.... What fool in their right mind would place themsevles in that kind of position unless they were really intent on carrying out an act of terrorism?

My headquarters for one of my last units was on the Navy support facility and they do not have reactors there. It used to be used to service nuke subs and the nuke missiles from them. There is some other very neat stuff there but we know the saying, I could tell you but then.....

Hmm, maybe I got some bad scoop. I know the Nuke school is there maybe they just have simulators then. I've known several sailors (officers) who attended that school and they said there was a reactor on one of the drydocked subs, and on land, they didn't specify if they were decommissioned or simulators.

From Wikipedia
The Weapons Station has expanded its mission and Department of Defense support role with over 40 tenant commands, and today is a training center, with the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, Nuclear Power Training Unit, Propulsion Facility, and Border Patrol satellite academy; Naval Consolidated Brig, Charleston; Mobile Mine Assembly Unit; Explosive Ordnance Detachments; Marine Corps Reserve Center; an engineering complex, with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR, this is the largest employeer in the Charleston area) and is close to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast; 269 above-ground ammunition magazines, maintenance and storage of military ordnance including mines, and serves as an Army logistics hub, the busiest continental United States surface port in the defense transportation system. In addition, NWS Charleston contains more than 1,800 on-base houses for Navy enlisted and officer dependents as well as Coast Guard dependents, and has a child care facility, elementary and middle schools.

Currently under construction is a super clinic near the Nuclear Power Training Unit complex in Goose Creek.[4]

Ok found this...

for some reason it won't display correctly if I copy paste the url, think it is because of the parentheses in the url.
It's from the South Carolina Emergency Division
Code:
http://www.scemd.org/plans/SCEOP07/39-Annex-25AttachmentA(RadiologicalHazards).pdf
O. The Nuclear Power Training Unit (NPTU) at the Naval Weapons Station
in Goose Creek, South Carolina is also identified as a radiological hazard.
There are two reactors used for training Navy operators for shipboard
nuclear reactor operations. A radiological incident involving the release
of radiological materials at NPTU would be contained onsite, with
minimal offsite impacts.
