FOX News:

Authorities say they have a suspect in custody after finding a backpack which may contain an explosive chemical near the Pentagon in Arlington, Va.

A source with knowledge of the investigation told Fox News that authorities were alerted to a suspicious vehicle in the area early Friday morning. A backpack containing what they believe is five pounds of ammonium nitrate was found outside the vehicle, the source said, though authorities are still trying to determine what the material is.

A notebook was also found at the scene and contained threatening words like "Al Qaeda" and "Taliban," Fox News has learned.

The man arrested is a naturalized U.S. citizen who came to the country from Ethiopia, a source told MyFoxDC.com. :snip:

Interesting. Our swim team is going to Ft. Hood for a meet this weekend and they have changed the security info and entry process several times in the past two weeks siting potential threats after Bin Laden's death.
