A man arrested after a pipe bomb exploded in his car in Santa Ana was charged Tuesday as a terrorist under the federal Patriot Act.

Hai Duc Le also was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction in Sunday's incident. If convicted, he faces 35 years to life in federal prison.

But Walters said, "We don't believe she was the target." He said investigators suspected the bombing was connected to a cafe in the shopping center, which caters to Vietnamese customers. He said the target may have been a customer.


Now if he was a real american and used a gun, it wouldn't be a terrorist act.

If the guy's pipe bomb exploded in his car and he survived with injuries, then the pipe-bomb was, at most, a Weapon of Ass Destruction.
