Soldiers at Fort Dix: Targeted by jihadists
Update: The names of the suspects via one of the filed complaints: Dritan Duka (illegal alien); Eliver Duka (illegal alien); Shain Duka (illegal alien) Serdar Tatar (the pizza deliverer...his family owns a pizzeria near Ft. Dix) Mohamad Shnewer; Agron Abdullahu. According to CBS News, Shnewer is from Jordan and is the lone (naturalized) U.S. citizen of the six; Tatar, from Turkey, and Abdallahu, from the former Yugoslavia, are legal permanent residents. The illegal alien Duka brothers are also from the former Yugoslavia.
The plotters watched videos of armed attacks on US soldiers, studied the last will and testament of at least two of the 9/11 hijackers, and watched bin Laden exhortations to jihad. They plotted with an FBI informant. They trained, stocked up on weapons, and plotted for the next six months. At one point, they contemplated joining the military to wage jihad from the inside:
Update: Fort Dix responds:
FORT DIX SECURITY REMAINS STRINGENT
"Security at Fort Dix remains stringent in the wake of arrests Monday of six men who were allegedly plotting a terrorist attack on the post. This alleged attack is a reminder that we are a nation at war, and that each of us must be vigilant and aware of our surroundings.
"On a positive note, the Fort Dix and McGuire AFB law enforcement community has partnered with the FBI and local communities during this lengthy investigation to ensure the safety of our joint installations. "Mobilization and training continue as scheduled at Fort Dix, which has mobilized and demobilized more than 95,000 Soldiers since September 11. "Those passing through checkpoints onto Fort Dix will notice more frequent vehicle searches and strict adherence to a 100 percent ID check, which may slow traffic. "
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the FBI arrested five people in Cherry Hill and one in Pennsylvania last night for an alleged plot to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, a federal official said. Some of the six men, who are Algerian [Albanian] citizens, tried to purchase automatic weapons from a local gun dealer, the source said. Carolee Nisbet, a public information officer at Fort Dix, said: "I understand that they weren’t just targeting Fort Dix, that it was a multiple-base plan to attack several bases in the Northeast.” She declined to elaborate. At the base this morning, Nisbet said: “They are going to make the security procedures more stringent, but we’re not going to increase the threat level. We are just going to make people more aware of their surroundings. WNBC-TV in New York reports that three of the men are brothers and followers of Islam, and have lived in the United States for several years. Five of the men are expected to be arraigned in federal court in Camden today.
In a statement released this morning to confirm a report on The Star-Ledger's Web site, the U.S. Attorney's Office said the men planned to "kill as many soldiers as possible."
Officials would not comment beyond the brief statement. But two law enforcement sources said the men had conducted surveillance of the Army base and were caught allegedly attempting to purchase AK-47s to carry out their plan.
The bust came after several of them were lured to a meeting with an arms-seller who turned out to be a secret FBI informant, said both sources, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the arrests.
Some of the would-be attackers have been illegally in the United States, while others are illegal immigrants, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Four are ethnic Albanians, one was born in Turkey, and a sixth was born in Jordan, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. "
Yeah Bennett's legislation is a truly wonderful idea. :p Isn't it great that religious organizations can aid and abet illegal aliens (who their supporters say are just here doing jobs that most American's simply won't do ...like plotting terror activities, robbing, raping and murdering) ? I bet that every LDS person reading this must feel so proud that Bennett has exposed us all to increased terroristic danger and in the process linked the Church to it; all because he felt bad for all those outlaws overrunning the border down South. It all makes me wonder whether there isn't some reasonably enforceable law that could have prevented some of these plotters from being here? Come to think of it there is, it's called: Federal Immigration Law. Why would LDS people want to associate or be linked in any way with encouraging outlaws or terrorism?
I'll say it again, people whose first act upon entering our country is commission of a felony and who then continue and compound it with chronic lies, false identities and general deceit aren't here because they love either truth or this country. They shouldn't be baptized or given temple recommends. The Church should absolutely disavow any connection to or use of, Bennett's foolish legislation and get back to urging compliance with and obedience to the law of the land which serves to protect us all.
Now as to why the outlaws are really here:
A Sad Parallel... I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table...everywhere. Then some of the birds turned mean: They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud: They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be...quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now lets see...our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families: you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor: you child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English: Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to press "one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than "Old Glory" are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
