Saudis Board Tampa School Bus – mistake or dry run?

I just read a report on WorldNetDaily, confirmed with a check at Tampa Bay Online about an occurrence this past Friday, where 2 Saudi men evidently waited at the corner with a bunch of school kids and then got on the school bus with them when it came. The substitute driver phoned ahead to the school, and the bus was met by Hillborough County sheriff’s deputies, who arrested the guys:

“We’re not sure if this was a situation of them just being new to this country, or if they were confused or what it was,” Callaway said. “We were unsure as to exactly what the final reason was, but it did cause great concern for the students on the bus and for us. One of the guys was wearing shorts with a black trench coat.”

The best part of the news about this decidedly strange event is this:

A judge revoked bail for two Saudi men arrested Friday for boarding a school bus and riding to Wharton High.

Initially, Mana Saleh Almanajam, 23, and Shaker Mohsen Alsidran, 20, were held in Orient Road Jail on bails of $250 each on misdemeanor trespassing charges. Circuit Judge Monica Sierra decided to hold them at a court appearance Saturday so investigators could dig deeper into their pasts….

At the hearing, Sierra agreed with a prosecutor that she needed to know more about them before she could feel comfortable releasing them.

The prosecutor said neither man carried identification when they were arrested at Wharton High School, and authorities haven’t had an opportunity to gather background information beyond a check of state records.

Thankfully, this didn’t happen in Houston – they would probably have been given the keys to the city already.

  1. We have terrorists in Texas of another kind.

    Ricky Poohair & Dudley Dewlip have listend to the common folk of Texas and decided that we don’t understand the depth of their farsightedness.

    To deal with this problem I suggest:
    Governor – Kinky – he will be so hot nobody will touch him.
    LewTenant Gov – A mass write in of all blog readers who do not intend to vote for Dewlip and don’t want to vote for a dehmi.

    This write in concept could roll through the Texas blog sphere like thunder, rolling thunder or Roller Voter.

    I would not stop Dewlip from winning but it would make the media and send a thunderous message.
