FBI Raids Muslim Meat Packing Plant

It happened Sunday, but this is the first I've heard of it. No arrests, just the raid. But, if this raid was related to immigration or food processing, what was the FBI doing there?

I'll also note, that a separate report says that there are only 6 employees at the plant.

That's right, 100 federal agents raiding a company that only has six employees. If this wasn't terror related, then what other plausible explanation is there for it?

Here's what one witness said:

One man who was talking about the raid was Jim Cavaness. He's a handyman who occasionally works at the plant where goats, sheep and cows are slaughtered. On Sunday, he witnessed the raid and says he was questioned by FBI agents.

Cavaness says the FBI asked him if he had seen anything unusual at the plant. He says he's never seen anything unusual, but, he says, judging by the amount of firepower on the scene, the FBI wasn't just working an immigration case.

"Way too much overkill for immigration," Cavaness said.

Neighbors who saw the raid on Sunday told CBS 2 it was a huge operation, involving more than 100 agents, police officers and even what one believed to be National Guard troops.

Sources say during the raid, the driveway was filled with more than 50 government vehicles. There was a helicopter flying overhead and a command center set up. On top of it were government sharpshooters with rifles at the ready.

If any one has more information, send me the link.

Thanks to Charles.
