NEW YORK – The FBI arrested four men Wednesday in what authorities called a plot to detonate a bomb outside a Jewish temple and to shoot military planes with guided missiles.

Officials told The Associated Press the arrests came after a long-running undercover operation that began in Newburgh, N.Y., about 70 miles north of New York City. James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, all of Newburgh, were charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction within the United States and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. attorney's office said. The men had planned to detonate a car with plastic explosives outside a temple in the Bronx neighborhood of Riverdale and to shoot military planes at the New York Air National Guard base at Stewart Airport in Newburgh with Stinger surface-to-air guided missiles, authorities said.

The defendants planned to "destroy a synagogue and a Jewish community center with C-4 plastic explosives," Acting U.S. Attorney Lev L. Dassin said.

Rep. Peter King, the senior Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, was briefed on the case following the arrests.

"This was a long, well-planned investigation, and it shows how real the threat is from homegrown terrorists," said King, of New York.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said if there can be any good news out of this case it's that "the group was relatively unsophisticated, penetrated early and not connected to any outside group."

The defendants, all arrested in New York City, were expected to appear in federal court in suburban White Plains on Thursday.

"Home grown" terrorists arrested in NYC

Can anybody else believe this? I just saw this and could hardly believe it. If they were so unsophisticated, how were they going to use WMD?? With that new bill on the table trying to be passed that states how the attorney general can declare anyone a "suspected terrorist", it seems now it will almost indefinitely get passed.
The link to the thread of that bill is right here:

Did the federal government just declare war against the people - H.R.2159

Any thoughts or opinion on this? Here's the "smoking gun" they need to pass the bill

I came across this article or speech yesterday (05/20/09) that the Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah warned: of the West hatching a plot to create a new conflict for the Middle East.
By pitting arabian nations against each other.

Here's the Source
Also here's the original speech if anyone wants to read: Source

Could this be the plot that Nasrallah was talking about? He leaked the info and the FBI at the last minute decided to pull the plug, since the cat is out of the bag!? I mean what if all of those "disabled" WMD's (lol, the 35lbs car bomb, 5 foot long land-to-air missile launcher and C-4) weren't really disabled?

Check out Faux News article about it, this article has so much B.S.
Here's the Source

The FBI could of arrested these guys during the Illegal Arms sale but No they wanted "their" plans to fester and arrest them after they loaded a 35lb car bomb and placed a few explosives near synagogues...
