U.S. terror suspects accused of targeting Marine base

On the heels of our analysis yesterday of the terror attack drill conducted at Fort Monmouth and how it relates to our case at Earle, Reuters reports that the two men charged in North Carolina last month with plotting terror attacks overseas also planned to attack the U.S. Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia, authorities said on Thursday.

A new indictment against "alleged" ringleader Daniel Patrick Boyd (see past NOPE blogs about Mr. Boyd, about a month ago) and Hysen Sherifi charges the men with conspiring to murder U.S. military personnel and possessing armor piercing ammunition. Clearly these are wonderful, upstanding civilians .... As Reuters reports:
"These additional charges hammer home the grim reality that today's home-grown terrorists are not limiting their violent plans to locations overseas, but instead are willing to set their sights on American citizens and American targets, right here at home," U.S. Attorney George E.B. Holding said.

Reiterating yesterday's commentary, NOPE scratches its collective head wondering why, considering the wealth of knowledge we have on global terrorism and military bases now on the radars of terrorists, U.S. Navy leaders in Washington are so eager to build an unimpeded civilian access road thru the heart of Weapons Station Earle, all for the sake of obligating a 30-year housing privatization contract that has nothing to do with enhancing the base's mission. We encourage our supporters to challenge their elected officials and the U.S. Navy on this, and to attend our October 27 rally at Colts Neck High School.
