"Four more people â?? including two suburban Toledo men and two others from the Chicago area â?? have been indicted in federal court in connection with an alleged Toledo-based plot to train terrorists fighting U.S. forces in Iraq, The Blade has learned.

Ashraf Zaim, 39, an Ottawa Hills resident and owner of A-Z Travel in Toledo; Bilal Mazloum, 22, of Sylvania, a brother of one of three terrorist suspects indicted last year; and cousins Zubair Ahmed, 27, and Khaleel Ahmed, 26, both of the Chicago area, were named in indictments that were unsealed today in U.S. District Court in Toledo. The indictments were handed up by a federal grand jury in Cleveland on Feb. 7."

Post of the Year right there, Talon Newsman. Maybe O'Reilly will float ya one of his Peabodys.

And one can't help but notice ol' Ned has avoided the multiple GOP-terrorist-donor threads on this here messageboard. If anyone can solve that mystery, I have a Polk for ya...

WASHINGTON â?? A former Navy sailor was arrested Wednesday for allegedly e-mailing military secrets â?? including detailed information on Navy battle groups and their missions â?? to a suspected terrorism financier that were later posted on Web sites used to raise funds for Al Qaeda.

Hassan Abujihaad, 31, of Phoenix, is accused in a case that began in Connecticut and followed a suspected terrorist network across the country and into Europe and the Middle East.

He was arrested in Phoenix on charges of supporting terrorism with an intent to kill U.S. citizens and transmitting classified information to unauthorized people.

Are you going to make your usual racist commentary on the matter, Ned, or have you been reduced to simple cut 'n' paste?

I think Ned has a point.
As long as we only apply the word "terrorist" to Muslims, only Muslims can be terrorists.

FBI Arrests Six In Alleged Terror Plot Against N.J. Soldiers
NEW YORK -- Six men from New Jersey have been arrested in an alleged terror plot against soldiers at Fort Dix, according investigators.

Investigators said the men planned to use automatic rifles to enter Fort Dix and kill as many soldiers as they could at the N.J. base. Fort Dix was just one of several military and security locations allegedly scouted by this group, authorities said.

more...
The six suspects arrested Monday night will face terror conspiracy charges. Three of the men are brothers, all believed to be Islamic radicals. Authorities have told Newschannel 4 that some of the men were born in Albania and the former Yugoslavia. Investigators said most of the suspects have spent several years here in the U.S.

Some of the group's alleged planning was caught on videotape, investigators said. On the videotape there is significant discussion of Martyrdom.

"Who is going to take care of my wife and kids," one suspect asks. Another responds, "Allah will take care of your wife and kids." The alleged terror cell is described by investigators as disciples of Osama Bin Laden. Among the evidence seized was the downloaded will and testament of two Sept. 11 hijackers.

But... but... I thought we were fighting them over there so we wouldn't have to fight them over here? What the hell happened?

In any case, kudos to the authorities who thwarted this plot. Looks like John Kerry was right after all - terrorism is a law enforcement issue.

Although I do loathe myself, I find Christians and Muslims even more repulsive.

Leave it to a provincial simpleton like 'ol Johnny here to not understand that the U.S. military, for obvious reasons, is not allowed to carry out operations on U.S. soil. So what other choice did the administration, FBI and other authorities have?

As for "fighting over there", well I haven't heard of any attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11, no thanks to Democrats. So the strategy seems to be working OK for now.

I'm sure 'ol Johnny boy, just like Komander Kerry and the Klintons would love to haul these and other terrorists into court, like some drunk driver or shoplifter.

That kind of thinking unfortunately lead to 9/11.

The kind of thinking that lead to 9/11 was the thinking of the current administration that a memo entitled "Osama Bin Laden determined to strike US" was no big deal.

Well, I see the sun is shining - which means Ned must be lying about something.

Care to add some teeth to your accusations that Democrats are somehow enabling terrorists? Or is this just more mindless neo-con rhetoric that were supposed to accept at face value, no matter how insulting it might be to our intelligence?

Sure, start with the recent comments of Harry Reid.
