Here's what they're up to in Ohio:

MARIETTA, Ohio - Two men were charged Wednesday with money laundering in support of terrorism after authorities said they found airplane passenger lists and information on airport security checkpoints in their car.

Deputies stopped Osama Sabhi Abulhassan, 20, and Ali Houssaiky, 20, both of Dearborn, Mich., on a traffic violation Tuesday. They found the flight documents along with $11,000 cash and 12 phones in the car, said Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks.

Prosecutor Susan Vessels declined to say how the phones, cash or flight information involved terrorism.

Abulhassan and Houssaiky admitted buying about 600 phones in recent months at stores in southeast Ohio, said sheriff's Maj. John Winstanley. The men said they sold the phones to someone in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb.

Well, here's a guess: you use multiple phones distributed among the cells. You use each phone once, for only a few minutes. Since the NYTimes has thoughtfully shown you all about the US intercept and listening program, you now know that you need to randomize and break up any patterns in your communication, and so 600 cell phones used by the 10-15 members of your terrorist group allows you to do that.

Thank you, New York Times.

Update: I should have known that Michelle Malkin would be all over this...last night! Heh.
