US Foils Attack on New Jersey Army Base
While analysts have understandably been focused on preventing another, 9/11-like, Al Qaeda mega-attack on the US, it is possible that armed Islamist terror cells have been preparing a series of smaller-scale assaults against a wide range of hard and soft homeland targets–from military and police facilities to schools and suburban shopping malls.
The fact that these kinds of attacks have not happened (except for a few incidents that have been largely ignored by mainstream media) does not mean that they won’t happen.
In New Jersey, meanwhile, six nationals from the former Yuogoslavia were arrested. Investigators said the men, described as “Islamic radicals,” planned to use automatic weapons to enter Fort Dix and kill as many soldiers as possible.
The suspects reportedly trained in the Pocono mountains area in northeastern Pennsylvania, where they practiced firing their weapons.
