    DEVELOPING: Authorities are investigating a man found overnight inside Arlington National Cemetery with a backpack containing "suspicious items and products," the FBI said Friday. But officials say the backpack does not contain explosive material and is undergoing further testing.

    FBI special agent Brenda Heck said during a press conference Friday that the man, whom she did not identify, was found inside Arlington Cemetery overnight when the cemetery was closed.

    Heck said the man, described as in his 20's, had a backpack containing a "non-explosive, unknown material" that she said will require further investigation.

    "The products in the backpack are inert," Heck said, though she described its contents as suspicious.

    Though the man was "not forthcoming" when taken into custody, Heck said authorities later found his red 2011 Nissan near the Pentagon.

    She said authorities found "no suspicious activity" related to the vehicle.

    Heck would not confirm earlier reports that a notebook was also found containing threatening phrases like "Al Qaeda" and "Taliban rule" and "defeated coalition forces."

    Heck went on to say that the man is believed to have acted alone and remains in custody. No charges have been filed against him, she said.

    MyFoxDC.com reported that the man in custody is a naturalized U.S. citizen who came to the country from Ethiopia.

    He's a Marine Corps Reservist. Looks like the bad guys want to replicate within our military what they're doing inside the ANA and ANP.

    Suspect a Former Marine Corps Reservist

    FOX News has confirmed that the man taken into custody early Friday after being found near the Pentagon with suspicious materials in his backpack is former Marine Corps reservist Yonathan Melaku.....22-year-old Melaku was arrested in Arlington Cemetery overnight.

    He was believed to have a backpack containing 5 lbs of a substance that was labeled ammonium nitrate. Tests showed the material to be an "inert" substance....A notebook was also found in his bag with words such as Taliban and Al Qaeda.

    Melaku was a Lance Corporal Marine corps reservist who joined in August of 2007.

    According to Marine Corps records, Melaku is a Muslim.

    Melaku was arrested and charged with four counts of Grand Larceny after a rash of vehicle tamperings in Alexandria, Va. in May.

    Janet Napolitano: Profile Muslim men under 35? Why would we want to do that?

    Once again, our gut instincts have been proven wrong by the geniuses in the Obama administration.

    Seemed reasonable to us that profiling young Muslim men might just help stop a bit of terrorism. Luckily, Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is on the job to show us the error of our ways.

    NewsBusters.org has the transformational information:

    According to Janet Napolitano, concentrating terrorist screening efforts on young Muslim men is “not using good logic.”

    Her response came after a reporter in the audience asked, “Why wouldn’t the Department focus more of its attention on the category of individuals that turned up most often as the suspect?”

    Napolitano retorts, “You’ve got to use actual intelligence that you receive…All you’ve given me is status, not a technique, a tactic, a behavior.”

    Wish we could hold all immigration from Muslim countries. I am sure the 7-11's and gas stations will get by.
