Indonesia Reports 11 Arrested, Planned Attack On US Embassy In Jakarta
After the Benghazi terror attack and this administrations response during and after, maybe they thought it would be a piece of cake to hit
Seriously, I'm glad these mujahidiots were stopped from carrying out their plans.
JAKARTA, Indonesia – Indonesia's anti-terror squad arrested 11 people suspected of planning a range of attacks on domestic and foreign targets including the U.S. Embassy and a site near the Australian Embassy, police said Saturday.A few days ago a major al-Qaeda terror plot was foiled in Jordan. Among the targets was the US Embassy in Amman.
The suspects were arrested in raids Friday and Saturday in four provinces, national police spokesman Maj. Gen. Suhardi Alius said.
He said the suspects belonged to a new group called the Harakah Sunni for Indonesian Society, or HASMI[...]
Alius said the group planned to target the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta and a plaza near the Australian Embassy and the local office of U.S. mining giant Freeport-McMoRan. It also planned to attack the U.S. Consulate in Surabaya and the headquarters of a special police force in Central Java, he said.
Alius said police are still investigating whether the group has ties with established terrorist organizations such as Jemaah Islamiyah. An investigator who spoke in condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to provide information to the media said HASMI's apparent leader, Abu Hanifah, was a Jemaah Islamiyah sympathizer.
Nothing to see here, move along
