    TERROR Life sentences upheld for brothers convicted in terror plot Published June 01, 2016 Associated Press CAMDEN, N.J. – A federal judge has ruled against three immigrant brothers seeking to overturn their life sentences for plotting to kill U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler ruled that he didn't buy the arguments from Dritan (DRY'-tahn), Eljvir (EL'-veer) and Shain Duka (DOO'-ka) that they were wrongly convicted in 2008 because their lawyers kept them from testifying. Kugler ruled Friday that he found testimony from their defense attorneys at a January hearing more credible. His decision was...

    When U.S. authorities got their hands on terrorist Mohammed Mansour Jabarah in May 2002, he agreed to inform on some of the most influential al-Qaeda leaders. So instead of being sent to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, or a high-security CIA detention facility, Jabarah was housed with relatively lax security at Fort Dix, N.J., where he was allowed to watch television and movies, speak to his family in Canada by telephone, go for walks and even make his own meals, all under 24-hour FBI watch. That arrangement soon proved to be a major problem for the bureau. In court papers filed in...

    BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE FRIENDS WHO BOMBED THE PENTAGON_________________________________________________________ From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008: "By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'We’re revolutionary Communists.' He got off on the group’s multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir. Ideal...

    An ex-Weather Underground radical on the Tucson shootings and political violenceBy Mark Rudd Sunday, January 16, 2011 In 1970, when I was 22 years old - the same age as Jared Loughner - I was a founder of the Weather Underground, an offshoot of the antiwar group Students for a Democratic Society. That spring, a small contingent of the Weathermen, as we were known, planned to plant three pipe bombs at a noncommissioned officers' dance at Fort Dix, N.J. Our intention was to remind our fellow Americans that our country was dropping napalm and other explosives on Vietnam, killing hundreds...

    SNIPPET: "U.S. intelligence officials believe there are dozens -- perhaps hundreds - of Americans who have been in e-mail contact with the radical Yemeni cleric who is believed to have inspired and directed both the Fort Hood shooter and the failed Christmas Day airline bomber, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned. Efforts to learn the details of that communication, or even to target Anwar Al-Awlaki militarily, may be hindered by his status as an American citizen."

    War On Terror: Sen. Dick Durbin calls a plan to transfer 100 Guantanamo detainees to northwest Illinois "a dream come true." It would paint a bull's-eye on America's heartland in time for the 2012 Iowa caucuses. It seems the question of where to put the Guantanamo detainees is being settled as we speak, with liberal Democrats in the very blue state of Illinois welcoming them with open arms and outstretched hands for the federal dollars that will come with them. Federal officials last Friday inspected the Thomson Correctional Center in Thomson, Ill., a town of 500 on the Iowa border,...

    Nearly three years ago, Brian Morgenstern was a college dropout more or less content with his job as an assistant manager at a Mount Laurel Circuit City. Then a man dropped off a videotape, asking that it be converted to DVD. Morgenstern's life hasn't been the same since. On the tape, he saw men firing rifles and shouting "Allah akbar," Arabic for "God is great." He found the images disturbing enough that he contacted local police, prompting an investigation that culminated in Monday's convictions of five Muslim immigrants from South Jersey on charges of plotting to kill U.S. soldiers. Today,...

    Stephen Balsamo felt like his body was on an assembly line. He and his fellow recruits lined up back-to-belly at the Fort Dix clinic that day in 1973 and, as they filed by, the men were given a half-dozen shots in each arm with a device called a jet gun injector. The 54-year-old Boonton man thought little of it at the time. The gantlet was just another thing to endure at the start of a three-year hitch in the Army. But Balsamo is now convinced that was the day the Army exposed him to tainted blood and infected him with...
