Close call????

These guys hadn't done anything much more than talk about it. Now, I'm not saying they shouldn't have stopped, nor I am saying they shouldn't be prosecuted, but to say that we narrowly escaped certain death and destruction due to the quick thinking of our government is really overselling this event.

You're right, they should be hanged, all that were involved in bringing these innocents in, i say we take up a collection for their defense.

It's difficult for me to imagine, how anyone can have that much hate running through their veins....and then actually meeting other like minded individuals.

I guess I look at it differently. I'm not ready to give the government too much credit but to me it takes quicker thinking to stop it this far in advance than to wait till the last minute and stop it. Maybe they just got lucky and stumbled upon it, don't know.

Well,this year there were 2100 secret warrants issued,they're working on it. This case took a year and a drug informant.We underestimate the effort being put out,this isn't happenstance, there are a lot of people taking the threat very seriously, we don't know just working everyday, but believe me my son brings home many cop friends and you'd be amazed at what they're doing.

Quote from Boston Herald

“Four Muslim men are accused of plotting to use explosives to destroy a jet fuel pipeline that runs through populous residential neighborhoods to the airport, which they allegedly believed would kill thousands of people and trigger an economic catastrophe.

In an indictment, one of them is quoted as saying the bombing would "cause greater destruction than in the Sept. 11 attacks."

Although the plotters put a great deal of time and travel into their plan, they never managed to obtain any explosives before authorities arrested Defreitas and foiled the JFK scheme. Experts said the plot could have resulted in damage and fires, but nothing on the scale that the defendants had envisioned”

Does it really make a difference that the plot was only in the talking stage or that these men had it all wrong? Maybe, if given enough time, they may have figured it out, put their plan into motion, and killed lots of people. I feel better knowing the government is on the job, stopping these plots in their infancy. Does this make me feel any easier about my grandchildren boarding a 12:45 flight out of JFK to Denver this afternoon? NO it doesn’t. I realize there are more cells all around this country plotting to destroy this country. Can the government find them all? I doubt it.
