WASHINGTON â€” The FBI probe of two men arrested in Amsterdam after suspicious items turned up in one of the men’s luggage is finding they were probably not on a test run for a future terror attack, a U.S. official said Tuesday, casting doubt on earlier suggestions even as Dutch authorities held the pair on suspicion of conspiring to commit a terrorist act.

Authorities have been treating this as a test, a probe of security. Two questions:
For whom were these two performing a “dry run?”
If and when an attack were to go through at a new site, will we have to suffer through getting a mosque built on that, too? Just asking.
An update onÂ this story. Again, note the vagueness of the headline and of this report, by which we can only assume this is a case of Flying Dutchmen Gone Bad — wooden shoe bombers, all. “Dutch question 2 men afterÂ U.S.Â flight,” from theÂ Associated Press, (JW)
