Legal Experts Warn About Significance Of the Fort Dix 6 Arrests
Wary of a number of federal anti-terror cases that proved to be overblown, two legal experts cautioned about attaching too much significance to Tuesday's arrest of six Muslims for plotting to attack Fort Dix.
The federal government's strategy to aggressively intervene early with any suspected terrorism plot, no matter how small, has sometimes resulted in prosecutions that failed to live up to their initial billing.
"The fact is that most of those arrested (in the past) are small fry and wannabes," said Daniel Benjamin, a terrorism expert at the Brookings Institution in Washington. "That's a reflection of the fact that al-Qaida has a hard time getting people in here and has higher priorities."
Federal prosecutors in New Jersey were quick to note that the six men arrested Tuesday — all from the former Yugoslavia and the Middle East — had no known ties to international terrorists. The arrests were initially announced from the White House, attaching a significance that implied it was more than a homegrown conspiracy.
The traitorous rat bastards at DU have offered this one up for public consumption. The Democrat party is helping the terrorists all they can by minimizing the foiled attack on Ft. Dix, reducing it down to a criminal offense instead of a terrorist action, and neglecting to mention that the Ft. Dix 6 were recent converts to Islam (they've been touting their ethnicity--Albanian or Yugoslavian--rather than their religious affiliation--MUSLIM).
That's OK Nanny Pelosi, Rabbit-Ass Murtha, Traitor Harry--and lousy, ugly, damned Democrat Underground; we'll even keep your perfidious, undeserving asses safe. We're Americans (I don't know what the hell you are...)
Sorry folks, but this has me absolutely furious.
