Seven Arrests Over 'Chicago Plot'

The streets of Liberty City were busy with FBI agents and vehicles
Seven people suspected of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower and other targets have been arrested by the FBI.
They were seized during a raid by federal agents on a warehouse in northern Miami. No weapons were found.
The suspects include five US citizens and two foreigners, including a Haitian. They are said to be Muslim.
Reports say the group, which had no apparent links to international terror, had been infiltrated by a US agent posing as a member of al-Qaeda.
They were reportedly trying to buy weapons.
"In the past couple of days, the US government has taken into custody seven people who were conspiring to conduct jihad [holy war] in the United States," one official told the Reuters news agency.







They said they had given their life to Allah

"They thought they were dealing with al-Qaeda," he said.
US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is due to give more details of the raids at a news conference later on Friday.
'Brainwashed'
Neighbours in Miami's poor Liberty City area spoke cautiously of the men, who apparently slept in a warehouse where they were arrested.
One told the Associated Press that the men ran a "military boot camp" from the building.






SEARS TOWER

Sears Tower


110 floors, 435m (1,450ft) high

Construction began in 1970, completed in 1973

Tallest building in the US

Third tallest in world, after Taiwan's Taipei 101 and Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Tower

Commissioned by Sears, Roebuck and Company, the world's largest retailer at the time

Designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

"They would come out late at night and exercise. It seemed like a military boot camp they were working on there. They would come out and stand guard," said Tashawn Rose.
"They seemed brainwashed. They said they had given their lives to Allah," she added.
The Miami Herald newspaper's City Editor, Mani Garcia, who has been working on the story, said there did not appear to be a direct connection between the suspects and al-Qaeda.
"They have been described to us by sources as wannabes or sympathisers," he told the BBC World Service.
Targets
As well as the 435-metre (1,450-foot) Sears Tower, the tallest building in the US, the group were planning to target a federal building in Miami, and some FBI buildings, officials said.
But the seven were not posing any immediate danger, according to the FBI.
"There is no imminent threat to Miami or any other area," said FBI spokesman Richard Kolko.
There were a large number of law enforcement officials involved in the operation, one local businessman told AP.
"There is a ton of guys in uniforms moving around, blocking the streets," said Cedric Thomas.

"They have been described to us by sources as wannabes

Any type of terrorism, domestic, foreign, or wannabe, is truly a horrendous thing, and being from Chicago, I am very glad they were stopped.

Peter,
I am afraid this will be the wave of the future, yet our intelligence sources have beefed up. They seem to catch them before it happens. I for one am very for screening all illegal to see just who they are. We have to go and check them out through their sources. I know we can’t do every soul but we can try securing our borders better, God WILLING…I mean we know better now when a pilot from some strange land known for terrorism wanting his license to fly planes who hasn’t been in the states long.. And acts suspicious…At a time when many American sources are being slack on the backgrounds, I think I hate to say this but many (not all) many Shi’a Islamist in this country, I feel all of them need to be checked further. Someone said the other day there is now established training camps of Al~Qeada here in the United States. WHATTtttt????? What is this finally coming to??? Oh we WILL smoke em out, Peter, everytime… I think to myself, how long do those radicals think they can jump the system??. If something doesn’t look right in our own back yards-report it, it’s better than having another 9/11.Yes, Peter I know the fanatics, the nuts are here. They immigrated here legally, and unlegaly and some were born citizens. I am praying so hard daily for unity and for God to intervene powerfully against the spirit of Al~Qeada. So many people get the wrong idea, and discriminate against peaceful Muslims, that wish us no harm. It is a matter of God showing us or He will send revival upon His people… WE must cultivate a net work of intercession targeted at the darkness, while education and prayers to help the peaceful ones. WE must not discriminate the good ones. Education, tolerance, military intelligence and hope through prayer…I do see the demonic strong holds leaving some. It is a dysfunctional religion that they are drawn and the eagerness to hate Americans and God’s chosen in Israel….World leaders must send a message more that they open their hearts to tolerance, yet strongly punishing the ones who wish havoc on our planet…. .Thank you again for this powerful call to interceding others and to open hearts to the injustice and justice…I will pray when I finish typing…

Peace & Love, Dove

I heard about this, and it really made me mad. If they are living or working here in America, why on God's green earth are they pledging allegiance to Al Quaeda?? Git' em on out of here, and bar their citizenship, pronto!! Same with ALL terrorists who are in hiding here; God help us! Glad the plot was foiled though; God is in control of this situation! An example of his Mercy and Grace at work!! We don't need another September 11, 2001!!!!!

Another reason to shut our borders and get rid of the illegals here and deny them their citizenship!!!!! GRRRRRR!!!!

Speak out, Peter; very well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. >:(

Took them almost a full day before they said the . . . gasp! . . . muslim ( know it is supposed to be captilized, I just refuse) word. They will probably never get around to saying that they are black muslims. Boggles the mind.
