    Six men from the former Yugoslavia were arrested on charges they plotted to attack the Fort Dix Army base and "kill as many soldiers as possible," federal authorities said Tuesday.
    The suspects were described as "Islamic radicals," said U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman Greg Reinert.
    They were scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Camden later Tuesday to face charges of conspiracy to kill U.S. servicemen, said Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey. Five of them lived in Cherry Hill, he said.
    "They were planning an attack on Fort Dix in which they would kill as many soldiers as possible," Drewniak said.

    Technically, Ft Dix is an Army post. It's the Air Force that has bases:thumbs:

    It's a political stunt manufactured by the Bush administration to inculcate fear into people to help influence the election.

    This is a good example of the levels of government doing something right and crushing a real threat to this nation. This is what we are suppose to be doing. My hat is off to whoever put this bust together and stopped a lot of Americans from dying. Professionalism at its best, bravo. It will never happen, but those who are illegal aliens need to be transported to Gitmo for military tribunals. The one who was a citizen should be prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law.

    Saturn, I could be wrong here, and correct me if I am PL, but I think PL was referring to the fact that the media was not informed about this last year. If that was the case I am in total agreement with PL. That is not to say that this is not a good example of the government working to supress a real threat, because it is. They did everything the way it should be done and my hats off to them.

    I am not sure. The media was not mentioned in the quote. They certainly do not have the need to know at that point. The media knowing could have been a death sentence for these or others.

    Amen, Brother Saturneptune -- Preach it! :thumbs:

    I wonder how many features not allowed until
    the Patriotic Act were used in this 'catch'?

    I have no idea about the media stuff. I didn't read the story. I was having fun with those who think that terrorism is a made up government thing used to inculcate fear in people and keep them submissive to the government.

    Wow, I was thinking the same thing! :eek:

    Seriously, I am grateful that these men were caught before they carried out this evil plot. These men should be put in prison for the remainder of their lives, or 150 years, which ever comes first!

    I'm going to wait and see if this "big catch" falls apart in a couple weeks like all the rest have in the past.

    Fake Terror Alerts, from the past.

    Has Alex Jones told us yet that this past week 90% of
    the bomb deaths in Iraq have been
    Sunni gang members trying to get
    out of the al-Qa'eda gang?

    BTW, On tuesday, May 09, 2007 the bigest
    bomb was set by Sunni on Sheiah (sp).

    'Alex Jones' isn't a household name.

    The discussion of 'all' is going on at:
    http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=39444&page=7

    That is a Baptist Only location, so don't respond there unless
    you are a Baptist.
