I agree that the eBay part of the story looks like a yawner, but everyone
knows who eBay is. OTOH, the computer evidence which is hinted at in the
ABC News sotry is much more interesting. Maybe much of the plot can be
reconstructed from computer records on home PCs.

I'm trying to figure out what makes this "news". So they did something
to make money to fund their plot - big deal. Its only news if they
were using ebay to sell illegal things to raise funds, or swindling
customers or something - otherwise, wgaf. I would assume that any
terrorist cell has to work to make money to fund their plots unless
they're just given money by their oil-owning backers.
