Constant Vigilance

There was a time when you'd have laughed at this guy, and said he's still not outgrown his Dungeons and Dragons phase. Now it's not so funny, and we cannot spend enough time finding out everything about this freak, and everyone with whom he associates.

A university student from Egypt was ordered held without bond after prosecutors said they found a pilot's uniform, chart of Memphis International Airport and a DVD titled "How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act" in his apartment.

The FBI is investigating whether Mahmoud Maawad, 29, had any connection to terrorists. He is awaiting trial on charges of wire fraud and fraudulent use of a Social Security number. Maawad, who is in the United States illegally, told the judge during a hearing Thursday that he is studying science and economics at the University of Memphis.
