More on Yesterday's Amtrak Incident

Charles Johnson and the New York Times have details about the Amtrak train that was detained in Newark, NJ yesterday. The Times writes:

For 90 minutes on Thursday morning, passengers aboard an Amtrak train headed to New York and Boston were questioned and videotaped as the seven cars were searched after a note containing Muslim and anti-Semitic phrases was found in a bathroom.

Swell. Eventually the note in a bathroom of the Metroliner will no doubt be stuck to something that’s ticking.

Update: The Washington Times adds this detail:

Police said the note included pro-Muslim statements and called for the death of Jews. It reportedly also said: “You’re all sitting ducks.”

Interesting (and chilling).
