>WASHINGTON (CNN) -- FBI agents were raiding sites in Miami, Florida, on Thursday in connection with a domestic terrorism investigation, law enforcement sources said.

The FBI said one search warrant was being executed in the Liberty City area of Miami. Officials said no weapons or bomb-making materials had been found in the searches so far.

"We are conducting a number of arrests and searches, and we'll have more about that when the operation is completed, probably tomorrow morning," FBI Director Robert Mueller told CNN's Larry King in an interview to be broadcast Thursday.

Robert Mueller is a guest on Larry King this evening. They were discussing this per a short snippet from The Situation Room. CNN said domestic terrorism and arrests being made.

I was watching the interview with Dick Cheney.

Furious Blacks threw bricks, rocks, and bottles at White suburban motorists who had to drive through Liberty City to reach a main Miami highway. Also, an apparently peaceful protest, sponsored by the NAACP, failed to produce a speaker. Soon, the discouraged crowd joined in the violence, attacking the Dade County Department of Public Safety headquarters and local White-owned businesses. Miami police and the National Guard restored order with roadblocks and guns. By the time the rioting ceased the following morning, 855 people had been arrested and eighty million dollars worth of property damaged. In the skirmishes between Blacks and White motorists, eight White people and ten African-Americans had died. The catalyst for this event occurred in December 1979.

What do you suppose the definition of "domestic terrorism" is?

Is it:

A. Terrorism that occurs on our soil, regardless of the perpetrator's national origin.

Or:

B. Terrorism that occurs on our soil, perpetrated by an American citizen.

Anyone?

Hope they nail everyone involved and have stopped any plot in its tracks.

I do trust that the culprits will turn out to represent a truly "broad strata of society" just like the CANADA-17 and other very diverse groups of non-Muslim terrorists and terrorist wannabes.

We would not want to find out that the FBI has gone after a bunch of people who all have, let me take a very wild guess, Islamic and jihadist tendencies in common....

Candiotti:

Statement from U.S. Attorney.

Earlier today, the FBI, in conjunction with federal state and local authorities, executed arrests as part of an ongoing investigation into a terrorist-related matter. The individuals arrested posed no immediate threat to our community.

FBI Search warrant are being carried out by the joint terrorism task force. Documents are currently sealed. No threat to Miami at this time. More will be revealed tomorrow in both Miami and Washington, D.C.

from hotair.com

Just across on CNN. Early reports say the area’s flooded with agents. Six to eight suspects are thought to have been arrested, and they’re not believed to be Muslim. If that proves true, expect the lefties to jump all over this one. If not, not.

As always, standby for updates.

Update: CNN says no weapons or bomb-making materials have been found, but according to the link above, the FBI’s been planning the operation for four months. Word is it’s domestic terrorism, not a foreign plot.
CNN is killing Fox on this, by the way. Nothing at all on FNC.

Terror Suspects Arrested In Miami Housing Project

* Reports Indicate 6-8 Suspects Were Detained
* They Are Not Believed To Be Islamic

Eliott Rodriguez
Reporting

(CBS4 News) MIAMI After an operation that started about four months ago, the FBI has arrested several suspects of domestic terrorism in a Miami low-income housing project.

The arrests took place Thursday afternoon at the Scott Housing Projects in the area of NW 68th street and 15th Avenue. Miami Police officers were seen in the area securing a perimeter for the FBI to carry out their arrests.

Sources tell CBS4 News it is unclear whether weapons or bomb-making materials were found, but those detained are suspected of being involved in planning terrorist activity.

Neighbors say suspicious activity had been observed at the home recently.

This is a developing story and agents have flooded the area.
