Saudi-born US naval engineer allegedly gave undercover agent info on how to sink carrier

A Naval engineer is facing charges that he gave an FBI undercover agent posing as an Egyptian intelligence officer secret documents about the new Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier while discussing how to sink the vessel with a missile.

Mostafa Ahmed Awwad, 35, of Yorktown, Va., was arrested Friday on an FBI affidavit that reads like it came from a Tom Clancy novel.

Federal prosecutors in Virginia say that during his conversations with the undercover, Awwad arranged to use a dead-drop location along a secluded hiking trail to pass secrets about the Ford, which is being built in Virginia for delivery to the Navy in 2016.

Why hire anyone with that name or a name similar? I'm sorry. But racial profiling needs to be considered when it come to stuff like this.

Racial profiling must exist unless of course someone is trying to destroy the country. Hmmmm....
