    The plan to attack the Fort Dix Army Base in New Jersey this year, they wanted to "kill as many soldiers as possible!" Five Muslim immigrants accused of scheming to massacre U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix were convicted of conspiracy Monday in a case that tested the FBI's post-Sept. 11 strategy of infiltrating and breaking up terrorist plots in their earliest stages. The men could get life in prison when they are sentenced in April. The five, who lived in and around Philadelphia for years, were found guilty of conspiring to kill U.S. military personnel. But they were acquitted of...

    Homeland Security: Despite overwhelming support in and out of Congress, legal protection for airline passengers who report suspicious behavior is being blocked by Democratic leaders. Wasn't one 9/11 enough for them? Were it not for the courage and sacrifice of the passengers of United Flight 93 who forced their plane into a Pennsylvania field, many in Congress might not be here today, with a gaping hole where the U.S. Capitol still stands. We wonder if this fact is appreciated by those trying to block final passage of the so-called "John Doe" provision protecting from legal action those who report suspicious...

Fortunately, we were.The Fort Dix Six are going to prison, with five convicted of conspiracy to murder U.S. servicemen and facing possible life sentences. Four were also convicted of weapons charges.

    The 15-month FBI investigation into the alleged Fort Dix terror plot was not without its moments of irony. 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...

    Five men who planned an attack on Fort Dix got their inspiration from Osama Bin Laden and their terror training from paintball games, a prosecutor charged Monday. "Their motive was to defend Islam," Deputy U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick told a federal jury in Camden, N.J. "Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. Their intent was to kill members of the United States armed services." The men turned paintball games in 2006 and 2007 into terrorist training sessions and discussed a plot to sneak into the New Jersey Army base and kill soldiers, the government says. No attack was...

    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...

    By JEFFREY GOLD – 6 hours ago CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — An anonymous jury will hear the case of six men accused of plotting to attack soldiers at Fort Dix, a federal judge ruled Thursday. U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler rejected defense complaints that such a jury would be biased. He agreed with federal prosecutors that the trial presents an exceptional case and could create apprehensive jurors. Several factors led to his decision, including pretrial publicity, he said. The six were arrested in May and charged with planning to raid the New Jersey military installation, which is being used...

    (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...

    Presidential candidate John McCain, skewered by some GOP conservatives as an advocate for "amnesty" for illegal immigrants, vowed Monday to resurrect a controversial immigration measure in hopes Congress can pass the bill by July 4. In a campaign appearance in Sacramento, McCain said he is pushing for compromises on amendments to reach a resolution on the measure to improve border security and grant legal status to 12 million illegal immigrants. In a major political setback to President Bush, the immigration measure stalled in the Senate last week after senators voted overwhelmingly against a motion to cut off debate and bring...

    In the current debate on the future of Kosovo, it is often overlooked that hundreds of thousands of Serbs and other non-Albanians had fled the province under Albanian pressure well before the KLA terror campaign of 1996-1998. Under Tito, the Albanians’ share of the population thus rose from 64 percent in 1953 to 77 percent immediately following his death in 1980. To understand the conditions that prompted the exodus of non-Albanians from Kosovo even in peacetime, we don’t need to look further than Cherry Hill, NJ. This prosperous Philadelphia suburb known for good schools is the home to the Duka...

    Over 1,000 New York Republicans crowded into the ballroom of a Times Square Sheraton Thursday night to hear from presidential contenders Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, but the real elephant in the room was immigration reform. Neither candidate addressed the issue in their speeches, even though rank-and-file conservatives spent Thursday talking about little else. McCain, of course, helped shape the immigration compromise that has so many conservatives in open revolt. For his part, Giuliani issued a statement in which he didn't really take a position on the bill, which would provide amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants living in the...

    No sooner had the six Muslims been arrested for planning an attack on Fort Dix, the left wing media was pimping the concept that the six had absolutely nothing to do with al Qaeda; no connection, no alliance, no nothing (no mention of Islam) and further, that radicals anyway make up a small, misguided splinter group. Of course we Americans are so terminally ignorant that we swallow this traitorous lie as if it were written in the Bible; and we sigh in relief comforted by this “liberal cabal’s” continuing propaganda to separate our minds from reality. When pushed against the...
