Not very bright getting caught with such a device but it sounds like the guy had no specific plans for it.

"U.S. law defines WMDs as ranging from explosive devices to biological weapons."

That was clearly not the standard under which our nation had the pitched arguments over whether Iraq possessed WMDs under Saddam Hussein.

A weapon of mass destruction is a nuclear, chemical or biological device. Conventional explosives are not in the definition, and a silly home made pipe bomb is certainly not.
See what happens when you let government have a little authority? They abuse every power they have.

I suspect the author of this article may have confused "weapon of mass destruction" with the term used by the ATF, which is "destructive device", basically any explosive device with a charge weighing more than 4 ounces or a weapon with a bore greater than .50 caliber.

In fact, WMD (I hate the term) did have a policy definition of anything from hand grenades to A-bombs. The reason: get more money from the taxpayer to combat more stuff. Ludicrous really.

In the good old days when you wanted to get even with your neighbor you didn´t make a bomb, you slept with his wife.

So a black guy makes a bomb to kill his neighbor. Then he decides not to, and gives it to another guy - who gets arrested for having it.

Seems like the first guy is the real criminal, the second guy is just a dope.

AN in-depth study into the impact of Brexit has revealed that even the most basic trade deal with the EU would see the £35billion divorce bill look "like a bargain". The UK struck a "bargain" when they agreed to the £35billion divorce bill with the EU - as the economic boom after Brexit will see "the bill pay for itself". According to top-level Bloomberg economists, even the most basic free trade deal with the EU would bring in over £40billion in just three years. Brexit Secretary David Davis has been pursuing a "Canada-plus-plus-plus" deal, which would see Britain replicate the Canada-style

ANOTHER nail in the coffin of Project Fear. It is becoming increasingly clear that the constituent countries of the EU as well as the bloc itself are exceedingly keen to strike a trade deal: the Prime Minister will today hail the most wide-ranging agreement in Anglo-French history. And significantly, while it does not specifically cover Brexit, it does mention a comprehensive agenda, covering everything from space exploration to the Bayeux Tapestry. This is proof, if it were needed, that Brexit is no bar to continuing good relations with our EU counterparts, to say nothing of the fact that we have a

A Republican senator disputed on Thursday that Donald Trump is a racist, following reports about the president describing majority-black countries as ´s***holes´ amid tense immigration negotiations. Trump is ´absolutely not´ driven by racial animus, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CNN, after flatly asking an interviewer to pose the question. And as the West Wing decided this week how flexible to be on immigration issues, he claimed, he got bad advice from the people around him. The ´s***hole´ snipe, which Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin claimed was directed at Haiti and African nations, shouldn´t be taken as evidence of racial prejudice, Graham explained. ´You

The five-minute movie, released on social media by pro-ISIS group Abd al Faqir Media, shows an army of terrorists surging through the city streets while ISIS jets race through the skies above.

President Trump spends a chunk of each day on the phone, whether it´s a White House landline or ´Trump One´ or ´Trump Two,´ the nicknames his aides have given to his two cell phones. CNN divulged more details about Trump´s habits during so-called ´executive time,´ a term used on the president´s schedule to indicate he´s doing work, but often from the Yellow Oval room, located in the residence. Axios first reported that ´executive time´ was taking up more and more of Trump´s ´shrinking´ schedule, suggesting it was time spent on Twitter and watching TV, and not in the Oval Office being productive.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to
