Goose Creek Bombers, Sami Al-Arian and University of South Florida

The Goose Creek Rocket Component and Bomb transporters 21 -year-old Yousef Megahed and 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed are students at University of South Florida per the Charleston Post and Courier
Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil rights organization for Muslims, said the men arrested are Youseff Megahed, 21, and Ahmed Mohamed, 24 - two University of South Florida students.
Family members told Bedier they think the materials were leftover fireworks Megahed kept in his trunk since July 4.
"Both of them are really naïve kids," Bedier said.
He said Megahed is a permanent legal resident of the United States and Mohamed was the passenger. Mohamed's legal status was not known. Bedier said police will not tell them why they're being held without charges.
"There's a lot of unanswered questions," Bedier said. "If they didn't do anything wrong they need to be released."
Remember that Sami Al-Arian was a Computer Science professor at the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa was arrested due to his alleged support of terrorism.
University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, right, was arrested Thursday in an early morning raid by the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Federal authorities arrested Kuwaiti-born University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, 45, described as the North American leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and three others.
Coincidence?  I doubt it connect the dots.....
