Welcom to Terror Land

I hate this story. It is a feeble attempt by our government to frighten us into submission. The U.S. government is now arresting people for "allegedly" trying to plan to do something. They never mention the plans for the Sears Tower:
"This group was more aspirational than operational," FBI Deputy Director John Pistole said. But Attorney General Alberto Gonzales described the men as "homegrown terrorists" who "view their home country as the enemy."

Neighbors who watched the men's vigorous exercise regime said the group appeared to be training for something. One of its members was always standing guard outside the small, windowless warehouse in the blighted Liberty City neighborhood.

How do we know they weren't Jehova's Witnesses?

...they were trying to do community service in the area where they grew up, studying martial arts to keep in shape and setting a good example for neighborhood kids.

That does it! NO alleged aspirational terrorists should be setting any examples for any kids!

Officials at the 110-floor Sears Tower said it was business as usual Friday. The building, the tallest skyscraper in North America, has received numerous threats since Sept. 11, but officials said they have never found evidence of a credible threat that went beyond criminal discussions.
I hope it was "business as usual on Friday", there was NO reason for it to be different. There was no threat to the Sears Tower and there NEVER has been. All the records are sealed so we will never know. Do you see those two FBI guys in the pic above? Those are the true terrorists!
