    Saudi arrested with pressure cooker at Detroit airport


    A Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport with a pressure cooker, less than a month after a bomb using one of the kitchen devices was used to kill three and injure hundreds.

    Hussain Al Kwawahir was charged in federal court with using an altered passport and lying to a Customs and Border Protection Agent about the pressure cooker, according to The Detroit News. Al Kwawahir arrived Saturday from Saudi Arabia, via Amsterdam, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in federal court. He told investigators he was here to see a nephew who attends the University of Toledo.

    Customs officials noticed a page missing from his passport, then found the pressure cooker during an examination of his baggage, according to authorities. Al Kwawahir said he brought the pressure cooker for his nephew because the devices are not sold in the United States, according to the complaint.

    He later changed his story, saying his nephew had bought a pressure cooker in the U.S. but it was broken.

    A pressure cooker is not a bomb. It is just that - a pressure cooker. The US officials should focus on listening to advisories from foreign intelligence agencies, like the FSB warning that was given to FBI and CIA about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

    You can buy them here in the US. You don't have to bring them from India.

    Many comments on the article devolve into a lament that "you can't buy a good pressure cooker any more, they're all made in China and India." :)

    There are two Indian brands that are very popular: Hawkins and Prestige. They usually carry the ISI mark.
