    MINNEAPOLIS - The war on terrorism is again at Minnesota's front door after federal authorities arrested a man who they suspect has terrorism ties.

    Federal sources told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the man was arrested last Wednesday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Sources in the Twin Cities and in Washington D.C. said the man arrived on a flight and was taken into federal custody. Along the way, customs agents found disturbing items in his possession.

    The U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that*Ali Mohamed Almosaleh is in federal custody in the Twin Cities. He was being detained on an immigration law violation, but federal sources confirmed there is much more than that to this investigation.

    Sources confirm Almosaleh was carrying a suicide note when he was arrested.*They say that*note indicated a specific time and date for carrying out some sort of public suicide. He was also carrying CDs and DVDs, which federal sources say contained anti-American material. A source also confirms Almosaleh had something with him indicating a connection with at least one known terrorist.

    "One of the first things that comes to mind is is he actually going to do something that's the first concern," said terrorism expert Bill Michael. "Second, if law enforcement believes he is, and now*rightly so they take an overly safe approach and they try and determine what activity he might actually be planning to engage in."

    Almosaleh arrived on a KLM flight last week. A source confirmed he began his travels in Syria and*stopped in Amsterdam before continuing to the Twin Cities.

    A federal source would not say where Almosaleh's final destination was, but that source did indicate it appears Almosaleh had plans to travel beyond the Twin Cities.

    One federal official in Washington noted, this is a "very sensitive" investigation.

    You and the ACLU must be outraged they've detained what seems to be a potential terrorist.
