    [quote]At Least 5 Arrested in Alleged Fort Dix Murder Plot

    MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. — At least five people 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 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, about 10 miles east of Philadelphia and 20 miles southwest of Fort Dix, he said.

    "They were planning an attack on Fort Dix in which they would kill as many soldiers as possible," Drewniak said.

    The suspects were described as "Islamic radicals" by Greg Reinert, a spokesman for the United States Attorney's Office. A law enforcement source told FOX News that all of the suspects are recent converts and were not born Muslims.

    The source told FOX News that there were between five and six arrests; the exact number is unclear.


    The Associated Press reported that those captured were nationals of the former Yugoslavia, but the law enforcement source told FOX News that not all of them are of Albanian ethnicity. Federal sources also said the group is from the "Balkans."

    "There are a number of immigrations issues that are being worked out," the sources said.

    Law enforcement officials said the attack was stopped in the planning stages and that the men were arrested while trying to buy automatic weapons in a sale set up by law enforcement authorities.

    "While the group's alleged actions are alarming, it may not have gone beyond the concept stage," a federal source told FOX News.

    Authorities believe the men trained for the attack in the woods in the Poconos and allegedly conducted surveillance at other area military institutions, including the Army's Fort Monmouth, the official said. Federal sources told FOX News the alleged targets went beyond military installations "to other targets of opportunity in the area."

    The official said the men had lived in the United States for some time and were arrested as part of a joint federal and local investigation.

    State Police Capt. Al Della Fave said Tuesday that the investigation had been in the works for about a year. Much of the information obtained in the case came from cell-phone conversations and Internet chats. The case documents are still sealed.

    The Star-Ledger of Newark reported on its Web site that the men had agreed to buy AK-47 assault rifles from an arms dealer who was secretly cooperating with the FBI. It cited a law enforcement person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak about the arrests.

    Jerri Williams, spokeswoman for the FBI in Philadelphia, said U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Newark and J.P. Weis, special agent in charge of the FBI in Philadelphia, have scheduled a news conference for 2:30 p.m. at the U.S. District Courthouse in Camden.

    Fort Dix is used to train soldiers, particularly reservists. It also housed refugees from Kosovo in 1999.

    In 1999, Fort Dix sheltered more than 4,000 ethnic Albanian refugees during the NATO bombing campaign against Yugoslavia.

    After the war, refugees were allowed to return to the U.N.-run province of Kosovo in the new nation of Serbia or to seek permanent residency and citizenship in the United States. The U.N. Security Council is considering whether to approve a plan to grant Kosovo independence from Serbia under the supervision of the European Union and the United States.

    Thanks for proving you are right wing hack. This has nothing to do with the current Administration. It is actually local, state and federal agents doing their job with no party in mind. Be glad they caught them now because these cases usually rely on federal money to get these cases up to a federal level and all of the federal domestic budgets are depleted.

    Thanks Iraq.

    LOL at the right wing spin. Forget about the good samaritan reporting suspicious activity to the FBI. We should all get down on our knees and thank President Bush for saving us. He's the real hero. :rolleyes:

    Apparently you have difficulty with reading comprehension. What's hillarious is the right wing spin to hail Bush as our savior, not the fact that a terrorist plot was foiled.

    Something good happens somewhere on Earth. Republicans praise Bush.

    Something bad happens somewhere on Earth. Democrats blame Bush.

    And people wonder why we are where we are today? :(

    Post #6 has nothing to do with brushing anything off or rendering anything meaningless. More spin from the right wing...shocking.

    Can someone please explain why Bush deserves any credit for this.
    What specifically did Bush do to help catch these guys. Which[U] specific [/U] new policy did Bush enact (that Dems opposed) that without it could not have resulted in the capture of these guys. And i want evidence that it was this policy that led to the capture.
