Interesting. What is this all about?
As large and international a metropolis as Los Angeles is, I’ve never figured it to be anything approaching a hotbed of terrorist activity (other than its dubious role as the fictional destination for some of the 9/11 flights). So a news release like this is curious, indeed.
The Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested two men on Thursday night in Southern California, according to the FBI.
One of the men was arrested at LAX; the other was taken into custody in Orange County, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
Both were expected to charged Friday in federal court in Santa Ana, according to Eimiller.
The names of the suspects were not released, and no information was given regarding what led to their arrests.
