Wal-Mart employees expose terror cell's bulk phone purchase

Unfortunately, terrorists always seem to be one step ahead of our defenses when it comes to weaponizing modern technology, from using airplanes as missiles to re-purposing shoes into wearable bombs.

Well thankfully some alert retail employees across the country have been notifying law enforcement about bulk purchases of prepaid cellphones (which can be used, as in the 2004 Madrid train bombings, for remote detonation), in one case actually cluing the FBI into a suspected terror cell.

After the December 18th purchase of 60 prepaid handsets by six Middle Eastern gentlemen, Midland, TX Wal-Mart employees decided to call the local po-po, who turned the case over to the Feds when the men began acting shady in custody. The six were later linked to a Metroplex-based sleeper cell, and are most likely enjoying the company of some "outsourced" foreign interrogators right about now.

Seems like Wal-Mart's minimum-wage army may actually be just as adept at crimefighting as the "highly-trained" G-Men, which either says a lot for Sam Walton or not so much for J. Edgar.

Thanks, D.

well, just like it says under the avatar, its in Australia.

Australia is a country in the southern hemisphere.
You know, kangaroos and shit.
In Australia, we make very good cars called Holden Monaros, then we stick very unreliable GM LS1 and LS2 motors in them, apply the fugliest, most unnatractive bodykits and gay 'power scoops' on them that only idiot markets would buy, put the steering wheel and pedals on the wrong side, rebadge them as Pontiac GTO's and sell 'em right back to your sorry asses!

So now you know.....

Ahhh Corcodile Dundee, how's Mike doing? I have not seen that chap in a while, does he still live with the natives? I had to look up Australia on Google map cause I thought Austria and Australia were one and the same except that Austria was a province in Asia because Australia is next to Africa and they don't have oil like Asia does. But for a long time I thought you guys were having some sort of war, I saw it on Mad Max or something. You see that's what happens to your country if you don't align to ours to get some oil from those A-rabs. You see they were lucky enough in the old days to have many dinosaurs that died there and rotted away into black liquid gold.

RE: Wal-Mart employees expose terror cell's bulk phone purchase

I'd like to see some links on this. I live in Texas and am pretty well read, and I've never heard of any "sleeper cells" here.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
