Fort Dix N.J. In our backyard....


"Federal authorities have arrested six men identified as "radical Islamists" and accused them of plotting to "kill as many American soldiers as possible" in an attack on the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey."

Called a friend who is a Sgt. and is presently serving at Fort Dix to find out what happened and what the story is with this. He advised me that Dix was in a somewhat lockdown but they were ready and already had defensive procedures in effect to counter a attack as described above.

The problem is that the general public has forgotten that there are people like these "Radical Islamist" out there and looking for additional ways to attack us when possible. The fear is that it will take an actual attack like the one planned here to wake the public up again to the threats against us.

The complaint also said that Shain Duka said Tatar wanted to join the U.S. Army "so he could kill U.S. soldiers from the inside" and that when CW-2 asked about Tatar again, Dritan Duka said: "He had only one mind, how to kill American soldiers" and that "rather than waging jihad overseas, they could do so in the United States."

The media coverage is out there if you look in the correct places but have you noticed the lack of coverage in many local formats? Even looking at the lack of coverage in the local blogs is evident. I am sure that it would be focused on more if it was a local military base but the list of potential targets to these terrorist was long and spread out.

Eljvir Duka, according to the complaint, was recorded as saying: "At the end, when it comes to defending your religion, when someone is trying attacks your religion, your way of life, then you go jihad."

This terrorist plot was discovered a year back when the terrorist took a VHS tape of themselves shooting assault weapons in a military fashion to have it copied to DVD format. A person working at the retail location was thinking and contacted the FBI and that is what started the investigation. The question is will the ACLU be out there right away claiming the terrorist rights were violated by the person reporting the VHS tape to the authorities?

The media and the Democrats are pointing out that the terrorist were not al-qaeda and that there are no ties to Hussein and the war in Iraq.

The problem is that they are ignoring that these are "Terrorist" and even if they do not have a "Terrorist Teamster Local #666" union card they are still Terrorist!!!
