    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...

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.

    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.

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...

But having investigated the Islamic Center of South Jersey one year ago, Middle East expert and former Air Force special agent Dave Gaubatz insists not only is the mosque a threat to national security, it represents a pattern that has prompted him to launch a massive project to systematically classify...

The five men were found guilty Monday in federal court of conspiring to kill military personnel, but they were acquitted of attempted murder after prosecutors acknowledged the men were probably months away from an attack and did not necessarily have a specific plan. Muslim leaders reacted with frustration Monday after the verdict.

One came in March 2007, as Besnik Bakalli was talking to the suspects about Mahmoud Omar, an Egyptian who attended their mosque and had joined them on a recent getaway to the Pocono Mountains. Bakalli didn't like Omar. "What a very bad, dirty liar," he said. The Egyptian was arrogant, he complained, always spouting opinions about jihads "like he know everything." At the time, Bakalli was secretly working for the FBI. He didn't know it, but so was Omar.Full coverage from The...

There, either McCain or Palin ought to read a bit from Bob Owens: "In less than the blink of an eye, the blast of eight tightly-bound sticks of dynamite shattered the brittle wooden shell of the building hastily constructed during the Second World War, adding...

    Petraeus: Al Qaida Trying to 'Come Back In' U.S. military officials said there will be no significant reduction in coalition troops in the Baghdad area as part of an effort to stop the Al Qaida offensive in northern Iraq. They said Al Qaida was trying to reenter Baghdad and reverse its losses in 2007. "Al Qaida is trying to come back in," U.S. military commander Gen. David Petraeus said. "We can feel it and see it, and what we're trying to do is rip out any roots before they can get deeply into the ground." Read More Militants Assert...

    CAMDEN, New Jersey-A man who admitted letting a group of accused terror-plotters shoot his guns at a firing range was sentenced to 20 months in prison on Monday. Judge Robert Kugler said Agron Abdullahu, who is originally from Kosovo, deserved more than the 10 to 16 months that sentencing guidelines call for because he knew the men who were talking about violence against Americans. "I am convinced that he is not as innocent as he'd like us to believe," Kugler said before handing down his sentence. "This is not a common, ordinary, technical violation of the law." However, the sentence...

    The government never accused Muslim Tatar, a 55-year-old pizza shop owner, of doing anything illegal. But Tatar says his life fell apart after his son was among six men charged last May in connection with a plot to attack Fort Dix. He sees his son, who he says is innocent, only through the glass wall at a federal detention center. He has been called a terrorist - and worse. He has health problems. He lost his pizza shop and struggled to find another job as a part-time cook. "My mortgage is behind," he said. "Everything's a big problem. My family...

    Agron Abdullahu pleaded guilty on Halloween to conspiring to provide firearms and ammunition to illegal aliens who allegedly plotted to kill U.S. soldiers at various installations, including the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey, U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie announced in Camden, New Jersey. Abdullahu, 25, of Buena Vista Township in Atlantic County, N.J., pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler to a one-count Superseding Information. Judge Kugler continued the defendant’s detention and scheduled sentencing for Feb. 6. Abdullahu was arrested on May 7, 2007, along with five others – three of them brothers – and charged...

    HADDONFIELD, New Jersey — Federal authorities say one of the men accused of planning an attack on soldiers at the Fort Dix army base gave another inmate in a federal detention center an Al Qaeda recruitment video and another wrote a note referring to the fight "we weren't able to finish." The U.S. Attorney's Office made the allegations in a brief filed in U.S. District Court late Tuesday to oppose the suspects' request to be granted bail. A lawyer for one of the men said the government is misrepresenting an incident...The five men — all foreign-born Muslims in their 20s...

    The investigation of men accused of plotting to attack soldiers on Fort Dix led Wednesday to a guilty plea in a very different sort of case. Cherry Hill municipal court clerk Debra H. Benecke admitted fixing two traffic tickets for one of the suspects. "She made a dumb decision to try to help out someone who really couldn't help himself," her lawyer, Scott Schweiger, said in an interview. Benecke pleaded guilty to tampering with public records. Benecke, who worked for the courts for 14 years, faces probation when she is sentenced on Feb. 1. The 49-year-old is also barred from...

    Three of the five men charged with plotting an attack on Fort Dix last spring have asked a judge to move them from a secluded part of their prison as they await trial, a youthful-sounding female NPR reporter told us on Monday night. She added that, in legal filings over the past week, the men complained that in the Special Housing Unit of the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia they are not being given “adequate access” to the government’s evidence in their case. From her two-minute “featurette” and a few dozen similarly worded agency reports in the “Mainstream Media” you’d...

    CAMDEN, N.J.—A man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to providing weapons to a group of men accused of plotting an attack on Fort Dix. Agron Abdullahu, 25, faces up to five years in federal prison when he is sentenced Feb. 6. Federal prosecutors have portrayed the New Jersey resident as having the smallest role among the six men arrested earlier this year in the case. The 27-year-old was born in what is now Kosovo and worked in a bakery.

    (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have asked that an anonymous jury be impaneled for the trial of six men accused of plotting to attack soldiers on Fort Dix. In a motion filed Monday, the U.S. attorney's office said potential jurors might fear for their safety because of the nature of the charges and the international publicity around the case. The request could be discussed at a meeting Friday before U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler. Attorney Rocco Cipparone, who represents Mohamad Shnewer, told the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill for Tuesday's editions that he opposes an anonymous jury, fearing it would only fuel...
  • What can I expect at Doughboy Field, Fort Dix (Craig Morgan concert)?

    I'm planning to attend the fourth of July concert there. It's headlined by Craig Morgan, and it's FREE!!! I have a couple of questions about Doughboy Field. - From looking at google maps, it looks like the field is just that: a vast open area where multiple soccer games can be played. Are there bleachers or stands as well, or do you think everyone will sit on the grass? - What "facilities" (i.e. restrooms) are nearby? Are they "real" restrooms, with indoor plumbing, or should I expect portable ones (ugh)? - They said we will take shuttle buses to the...
