Six arrested for plotting attack on Fort Dix

No matter the seriousness of these article, I still can't help but giggle just a little at Fort Dix.

Six foreign-born Muslims have been arrested for plotting an attack on the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey. Investigators say the men planned to "kill as many soldiers as possible."

Honestly though, how well would that have gone? Attacking a military installation with small arms? That's like throwing rocks at tanks. Oh wait, fanatical Muslims do that too don't they?

The six accused men went before a judge in Camden, N.J., on Tuesday afternoon. The defendants were all born in other countries — one is a U.S. citizen; two are legal residents, and three are in the United States illegally.

All will be equally treated as the pieces of shit they are.

Federal prosecutors say the investigators have video and audio recordings of the men talking about waging jihad and killing American servicemembers.

It's right after the audition for American Idol.

As NPR's Dina Temple-Raston tells Michele Norris, the investigation was sparked by a call from an employee of a video-transfer business, where the men had taken a videotape to be converted onto a DVD.

Who uses VCR tapes for jihad these days? Really?

On the video, the men were shown firing weapons and shouting "God is great" in Arabic, and calling for a jihad, or holy war, against the United States. The employee then contacted the FBI.

So I can't decide whether they should be tried for their crimes or just shot for stupidity.
