Quotes of the Morning: Terrorist Perspective

“I’m sure that you’ve heard about it already, but they just caught six real, live terrorists in the United States! My God, Fearless Leader was right! Without his keen vision and oversight these men might have brought their horrific plans to fruition.”

“Federal and state agents arrested six men and seized an arsenal of homemade hand grenades and firearms in raids Thursday, including one that forced the shutdown of a school.
The men, members of the self-styled ‘Alabama Free Militia,’ had no apparent plans to use the weapons, but the leader was described as a federal fugitive, federal authorities said.
‘They just have a beef with the government, and they stockpile munitions,’ U.S. Attorney Alice Martin said at a news conference in Fort Payne.”
-Associated Press, April 26, 2007

“No, no, no.. Those were just some white guys who collected guns. I mean terrorists. The guys who want to use violence to send out their message of hatred and fear!”

“Five members of a self-styled militia were denied bail Tuesday after a federal agent testified they planned a machine gun attack on Mexicans, but a judge approved bail for a sixth man.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Armstrong said at a hearing in Birmingham federal court he could not grant bail to the five because of the agent's testimony and the amount of weapons - including about 200 homemade hand grenades - that were seized in raids Friday in DeKalb County.
‘I'm going to be worried if I let these individuals go at this time,’ he said.
Adam Nesmith, an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified that the five - Raymond Kirk Dillard, 46; Adam Lynn Cunningham, 41; Bonnell Hughes, 57; Randall Garrett Cole, 22; and James Ray McElroy, 20 - planned a machine-gun attack on Mexicans in Remlap, a town just north of Birmingham, and went there on a reconnaissance mission April 20. The agent provided no further details.
During the raids last week, agents recovered 130 homemade hand grenades, a grenade launcher, about 70 hand grenades rigged to be fired from a rifle, a machine gun, a short-barrel shotgun and 2,500 rounds of ammunition, authorities said.”
-Huntsville Times (Alabama), May 2, 2007

“No, no, no! Sometimes I think that you are being deliberately obtuse. Not the white Americans who were planning on shooting Mexicans. I mean the foreigners who were planning on killing white people. Entirely different.”

“Six foreign-born Muslims were arrested and accused Tuesday of plotting to attack the Army's Fort Dix and massacre scores of U.S. soldiers -- a plot the FBI says was foiled when the men took a video of themselves firing assault weapons to a store to have the footage put onto a DVD.
The six were arrested Monday night trying to buy AK-47 assault weapons, M-16s and other weapons from an FBI informant, authorities said.”
-MSNBC, May 8, 2007

“That’s right, they were only caught because of their one critical mistake.. Trying to copy their home videos onto DVD. I know that their plan doesn’t seem to have been all that close to completion (since they apparently didn’t yet have the weapons to carry it out), but trust me, these Islamic Jihadists were much, much more dangerous than the white guys with a couple of hundred hand grenades. They just are. This triumph will go in the books next to our other great triumphs.”

“A federal judge denied bond Wednesday for six men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower and other federal buildings.

The six, who have pleaded not guilty, were arrested June 22 in Miami as part of an undercover FBI sting. They are accused of seeking to support what they thought was an al Qaeda operative's effort to bomb FBI buildings in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington.”
-CBS News, July 5, 2006

“From the indictment it is clear that the men had no shortage of ambition, asking for al-Qaeda training to wage a ‘full ground war’ to ‘kill all the devils we can.’ To his end, the group asked the undercover agent for a wish-list of equipment that included boots, uniforms, machine guns, bullet-proof vests, radios and vehicles — as well as $50,000 in cash. The group's leader also provided the government agent with ‘a list of shoe sizes for the purchase of military boots for his 'soldiers'.”
-Time.com, June 23, 2006

“Ah yes.. The dreaded Men Without Boots plot. Much more dangerous than the white guys with the machine gun and 2,500 rounds of ammunition.”

“A terrorist plot to set off explosives in the PATH railway tunnels under the Hudson River in October or November was disrupted in its planning stages, and several suspects in the plot have been apprehended, law enforcement officials said today.”
-New York Times, July 7, 2006

“One U.S. official called the plot ‘largely aspirational’ and described the Internet conversations as mostly extremists discussing and conceptualizing the plot. The official said no money had been transferred, nor had other similar operational steps been taken.

[CBS News correspondent Jim] Stewart reports his sources say that no one in the United States ever took part in the Internet conversations and that no one ever purchased any explosives or scouted the transit system.”
-CBS/AP, July 7, 2006

“The feared Railway Tunnel plot. Our most recent Islamic plot was further along.. They had apparently scouted the base using one of the members of the conspiracy who was a pizza delivery man. It’s not delivery, it’s al Qaeda! I wonder why there is so much press coverage of the Islamic guys and none really for the white guys? You know what else? They caught the members of this Jihadist plot without ever once needing illicit wiretapping or torture. Funny how the old ways are sometimes the best.”
