6 held on terror conspiracy charges in N.J.
NBC, MSNBC and news services:
Six men described by federal prosecutors as “Islamic militants” were arrested on charges they plotted to attack the Fort Dix Army base and “kill as many soldiers as possible,” authorities said Tuesday.
The six were scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Camden later Tuesday to face charges of conspiracy to kill U.S. servicemen, said Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey.
Officials said four of the men were born in the former Yugoslavia, one in Jordan and one in Turkey. Five of them lived in Cherry Hill, 10 miles east of Philadelphia and 20 miles southwest of Fort Dix, Drewniak said.
And note this bit:
The official said that the men had lived in the United States for some time.
It’s still early and few facts are out. And, doubtlessly, some of the facts that are out are wrong. So Murdoc hates to get ahead of himself. But he wonders about the “had lived in the United States for some time”.
Were they living here legally, or “undocumentedly”?
UPDATE: Much more at:
— Malkin, who says three of the six were illegal immigrants.
— Uncle Jimbo, who notes that they were orginally described as “Six nationals of the former Yugoslavia”. I saw that early, as well.
