Fort Dix Six: Guilty as Sin

From Rusty

Just heard on Fox News:Ft dix 6 guilty.
Update FOXNEWS has their version up now.

Via CNN:

Five of six men were found guilty Monday of plotting to kill U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix in New Jersey.

The verdict came after six days of deliberations. They could face life in prison.

The six men were arrested on May 7, 2007, in New Jersey, as two of them were meeting a confidential government witness "to purchase three AK-47 automatic machine guns and four semi-automatic M-16s to be used in an attack they had been planning from at least January 2006," according to a criminal complaint.

The sixth defendant, Agron Abdullahu, pleaded guilty in October to a reduced charge of providing firearms to illegal aliens and received a sentence of 20 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

I guess these guys will spend some time watching out for their cornholes in the Federal Penn.

The government was tipped off the the men's activities by an ordinary concerned citizen. One of the men asked a clerk at Circuit City to convert his Jihad training tape to DVD format. I guess maybe he wanted a version he could upload to the internet for all his Jihadi friends.

And therein lies a great lesson. The biggest danger to the terrorist supporters are their own egos. Their own pride and arrogance and craving for attention is their undoing in many cases. They believe Allah is protecting them. That he approves of them. So they get overconfident.

Thanks so much to Brian Morgenstern, if there is a reward available for busting up a terror cell, this man should be given a nice reward for his help. A great example for us all. Ordinary guy PW3NS terrorist wannbees. Sweet!
