Terror Plot Thwarted
He ordered 12 red toner cartridges from the lowest cost vendor, Achmed's Toner For Less, a Federally certified minority vendor headquartered in Yemen. Achmed's is a well known and reliable vendor that is often used by this administration.
After analysis by the FBI Crime Lab, preliminary tests indicated the packages contained the powerful industrial explosive PETN, the same chemical used in the Christmas attack, U.S. officials said. The tests had not been confirmed.
President Barack Obama called the coordinated pre-election attacks a "credible terrorist threat," and U.S. officials said they were increasingly confident that al-Qaida's Yemen branch, the group responsible for the failed Detroit airliner bombing last Christmas, was responsible.
Mohammed Farouk Ridahl, spokesman for Achmed's Toner for Less told this reporter "We know nothing about this. Obviously these packages have been tampered with by Jews who are trying to make us look bad, and trying to make us lose a valuable customer. Achmed's has never had a problem like this before, so it seems very suspicious to us."
