How is that for timing—just completed posting on Amherst’s petition to bring Muslim Gitmo prisoners to western Massachusetts while over near Boston the FBI was arresting the leader of a suspected Muslim terror plot. Here is the bare bones story (check out the photo of the guy’s house, he’s a rich terrorist). More later, but I have to go out.
A man from Sudbury was arrested Wednesday on federal terrorism-related charges for allegedly planning attacks inside and outside the United States – including a plot to attack people at a mall.
27-year-old Tarek Mehanna of Fairhaven Circle is charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston.
Investigators say Mehanna conspired with others over a seven-year period between 2001 and 2008 plotting to “kill, kidnap, maim or injure” people in foreign countries and to kill prominent U.S. politicians.
I wonder which politicians he wanted to kill????
