  • Detroit — Federal agents arrested a Saudi Arabian traveler who arrived at Detroit Metropolitan Airport with a pressure cooker, a key component used in the Boston Marathon bombings last month.

    Hussain Al Kwawahir will be arraigned at 1 p.m. in federal court for allegedly using an altered passport and lying to a Customs and Border Protection Agent about the pressure cooker.

    Al Kwawahir arrived at the airport Saturday from Saudi Arabia, via Amsterdam, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in federal court.

    He told agents he was visiting his nephew, who attends the University of Toledo.

  1. A slow terrorist? It would appear so.

    Still you can overwhelm a system with well planned attacks and some hair brained attacks that do not succeed but nonetheless take up resources.
