    I wonder how many Mexicans, Cubans, and Haitians have gotten in since CNN started panicking about this.

    Authorities discovered two suspicious 55-gallon containers in the back of a truck operated by an Iraqi man who sparked a national security investigation after he was stopped from entering the Port of Miami-Dade on Sunday morning.

    Miami-Dade County police's bomb squad and fire rescue's hazmat team were examining the 18-wheel tractor-trailer truck to determine what the containers' held, police said.

    Seems it was 'just a confused mess, no threat'. Why does this remind me of the flying imams?

    Seems like a set-up/probe? CAIR will soon be yelling about Islamaphobia.
