Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
Illegal missile dealing? In my Fairfax County?
Two Annandale men have been arrested in an FBI sting that uncovered visa fraud, gun smuggling and references to Lebanon, Yasir Arafat and bombing the Pentagon with a missile.
According to a recently unsealed U.S. District Court affidavit, an FBI informant met with Annandale resident Amjad Hamed, a Jordanian native, in April 2006.
Hamed provided the informant with six valid Palestinian passports and asked him to obtain U.S. visas for them.
According to the affidavit, Hamed revealed that he was part of an international visa fraud scheme. "I challenge anyone in the world who can bring so many passports without being inspected," he is quoted as saying.
(Nevermind about that last part—This has been a sting in progress
since April 2006. Glad to see the good guys get one, even if it did take two years to get awesome
amounts of Ye Olde Evidence!)Update:
At present, Fox
is discussing Natalee Holloway. As tragic as it may be, is that case really
more newsworthy than potential terrorism, right here on American soil?
Tabloid journalism at its finest.Update 2: Soccer Dad
reports that the D.C. Examiner reported on this story way back on the 12th
. I repeat: Where the heck is the rest of the media on this story?Update 3:
Fox News is now covering a small Cessna that's been circling Van Nuys Airport for the past half hour, and will most likely land safely within the next 10 minutes or so. Now that's
the kind of lasting news that will impact people for generations
