    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...

    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,...

    (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...

    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...
  • The left's 'hearts and minds' mantra (David Limbaugh on the 'Ft. Dix Six')

    The capture of the "Fort Dix Six" has inspired liberals to dust off and republish their "hearts and minds" mantra, which might sound wonderful to some, but bears more sober consideration. Before we can even consider whether winning hearts and minds is a remotely realistic goal, we need to determine whose hearts and minds we're talking about and what "winning hearts and minds" actually means. Do liberals mean we should convince existing terrorists that diplomacy is a superior path to achieving their goals? That tolerance of other religions is the morally superior position? That women are entitled to dignity and...
