    It will be interesting to see how this cell was detected and taken down...

    ETA: Looks like we may have caught them only because they were stupid. Looks like they made a video of themselves practicing marksmenship in the Poconos (in PA) and shouting all kinds of the usual anti-American drivel. They took it to some store or other to have it burned to DVD, and the guy at the store who saw it called the FBI.

    Lucky break, to be sure!

    How many more times does the FBI and other agencies have to break up these groups before the American people understand that we are at war? Dix and McGuire AFB are 20 minutes from my home. I have a lot of friends that are at work every day on those bases ramping up the troops and then loading them on C-17's. We see the pictures of Reservists and their families every day sending their loved ones into harms way. If the bandits are planning attacks here, I guess that means we are NOT losing over there.

    Stop making sense, Squid. You'll be called a mouthpiece, warmonger, or any number of other choice adjectives.

    If the story about the store owner pans out, he deserves an award.
