Of course, questions still linger. An inquisitive FrontBurnervian has several, after the jump.
Questions the reporters seem to be overlooking:
1. If these guys really wanted to go into the cell phone business, they could have made suitable arrangements to buy them in bulk, wholesale. The only reason they would go to 50 different Wal-Marts and pay in cash is that they wanted the transactions to be untraceable. And there is only one reason why they would want that.
2. So we’re supposed to believe that there are 1000 people in Texas who don’t know that they can buy the phones, with charger and a $40 airtime card in their local Walmart or Dolllar General for $20? Where they would have the right to a replacement or refund if there is a problem.
3. It was disclosed in January, eight months ago, that terror groups were engaging in this activity: [Link.]
4. If these guys were trying to raise money for tuition, I would think the $55,000.00 they used to buy the phones in the first place would have them covered.
5. Why are only Arabs/Muslims running around the country buying untraceable cellphones?
These guys are bad, bad, news, and everyone in Mesquite should hope they never come back to Texas.
