DFW Pair Face Federal Judge Over Pipe Bomb Charges

Man and woman pulled over and arrested on Saturday after a police chase related to a road-rage incident in which it is alleged the woman threatened another motorist with a weapon. The woman, 45 yeah old Kimberly "Asma" Al-Homsi, is a repeat "subject of interest by federal anti-terrorism authorities."

You know what they say about consistency.

The pursuit ended in Fort Worth after the truck carrying the pair hit ice at Rosedale Street near Loop 820. One of the pair told officers there was an "incendiary device" in the truck, authorities have said.

Police closed Loop 820 at Rosedale for nearly seven hours while they investigated. Nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution. The road reopened about midnight.

Authorities found three pipes containing black powder which were detonated by bomb technicians, authorities said. The gun inside the truck was a toy, authorities said.

A previous probation was revoked in 2007 after a six-hour standoff where she was having another pipe fashioned into an "illegal firearm". She and her friend were also seen multiple times hanging around DFW Airport and Love Field conducting what appeared to be surveillance, dressed in "traditional Muslim garb with camouflage pants underneath during at least one of the incidents."

A little unclear on the concept with the pants there.

She also claimed a friendship with Wadih el Hage, a former associate of Osama bin Laden currently serving a life term for conspiracy. but she claims she is being harassed because of religious sterotypes and not her pipe bomb hobby.

I wonder how many of these things you have to make before the law thinks maybe you're a little dangerous? I guess we'll see. I hope the magic number is "4".
