A car bomb in Michiganistan? Imagine that....

MONROE, Mich. (AP) — A car bomb caused a powerful explosion on a Michigan street that seriously injured a father and his two sons, who are "very fortunate" to have survived the attack, which turned their vehicle into a blackened hunk of metal, a federal official said Wednesday.
Investigators were poring over what remained of the vehicle after the Tuesday evening blast, looking for clues about how the bomb was made and who might have planted it, said Donald Dawkins, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
"There was a lot of power behind it. The victims are very fortunate, very blessed, to be alive," Dawkins said.
Among the things investigators are trying to determine is whether one of the victims was targeted or whether the attack was random, Dawkins said. The vehicle exploded on a tree-lined street under a highway in Monroe, which is about 35 miles southwest of Detroit.
Authorities declined to publicly identify the victims, but said they were in serious condition at St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio, about 20 miles south of Monroe.
The victims were lucky to survive, said Dawkins, who described the attack as a "heinous crime."

Without releasing any information at all on the intended victims, it's hard to tell anything. But it does strike me curious that with Michigans' HUGE muslim population and their frequent use of car bombs in their native lands, well....... do you see where I'm going with this, son?
But I'll bet that Ahmed and his cronies were involved one way or another, either as the bomber or bombee, maybe both.
We'll see.

Yup, that was the first thing I thought of, too. My second thought involved the UAW/Teamsters and their very open relationship with La Cosa Nostra.

Once I learned the father was a lawyer the suspect pool jumped from Achmed to ... well, everybody.
