Anyone heard about this yet?

BOSTON – A pharmacy college graduate conspired with two other men on a terror plot to kill two prominent U.S. politicians and carry out a holy war by attacking shoppers in U.S. malls and American troops in Iraq, prosecutors said Wednesday.

But their plans — in which the men used code words like "peanut butter and jelly" for fighting in Somalia and "culinary school" for terrorist camps — were thwarted in part when they could not find training and were unable to buy automatic weapons, authorities said.

Tarek Mehanna worked with the men from 2001 to May 2008 on the conspiracy to "kill, kidnap, maim or injure" soldiers and two politicians who were members of the executive branch but are no longer in office, authorities said, refusing to identify the politicians. Mehanna was arrested Wednesday morning at his parents' home in Sudbury, an upscale suburb 20 miles west of Boston.

  • *snort* I have to laugh a little, only because they just sound like idiots. We have a huge plan to kill all these people!......if only we could find a way to get trained on HOW.

    I have not heard of that, though. Although, I am glad their plans weren't successful.

  • I heard that. LOL Could have been any number of idiots they wanted to off.
    Personally, I think this is getting ridiculous. Anyone notice how now that Obama is in office these pre attacks have escalated. He has given them carte blanch to try and push through every terror plot ever thought of while Bush was President.
    It's a good thing our FBI and cops have it together to stop these things but for how long? It's a ticking time bomb. Sooner or later........
