    Default 6 charged with plot to kill Fort Dix soldiers

    Sources: 6 charged with plot to kill Fort Dix soldiers

    • Sources say six men were planning to shoot soldiers at Army base
    • Informant played key role in investigation, sources say
    • Official tells Associated Press all six are from the former Yugoslavia

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Six men were arrested overnight after being accused of plotting an attack against Fort Dix in New Jersey, and federal charges were to be filed Tuesday, sources told CNN.

    The six men were planning to use automatic weapons to shoot soldiers at the Army post, according to a federal law enforcement source and a senior government source.

    The men, some of whom were related to each other, had been doing surveillance and planning "for a while," and they trained in the Poconos, according to the federal law enforcement source.

    New Jersey state troopers and the FBI were involved in investigating and arresting the suspects. An informant played a key role in the investigation, the sources said.

    One of the sources said there is a video and an audiotape of the planning.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office in New Jersey told The Associated Press that all six of the men were from the former Yugoslavia, and that five of them lived in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

    Federal authorities said the men's goal was to "kill as many soldiers as possible," according to the AP.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Six "Islamic radicals" involved in a plot to kill U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix in New Jersey were arrested Monday night, the U.S. attorney's office in New Jersey said Tuesday.

    One of the suspects was born in Jordan, another in Turkey, the U.S. attorney's office said. The rest are believed to be from the former Yugoslavia, "either U.S. citizens or living illegally in the United States," the office said in a statement.

    The men, some of whom were related to each other, had been doing surveillance and planning "for a while," and they trained in the Poconos Mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania, according to the federal law enforcement source.

    They played paintball and test-fired weapons, a law enforcement source said.

    New Jersey state troopers and the FBI were involved in investigating and arresting the suspects. An informant played a key role in the investigation, the sources said.

    One of the sources said there is a video and an audiotape of the planning.

    The Newark Star-Ledger reported on its Web site that the men took a videotape of their practice sessions to a store to have it burned to a DVD, and that a store employee contacted the FBI because of the video's contents.

    Sources told the Star-Ledger the men were lured to a meeting with an FBI informant posing as an arms dealer. The newspaper's sources requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

    While authorities are glad to have arrested them, the individuals are "hardly hard core terrorists," one law enforcement source said.

    Another source said that while the allegations are "troubling," they are "not the type that made the hair on the back of your neck stand up."

    We should be able to simply kill them. They were apparently going to go on a suicide mission. If they had gotten into Fort Dix and started shooting people they would have eventually died. So there's no reason why we shouldn't get rid of them now. Oh yeah, right, the justice system. Nevermind.

    So basically these dimwits were apprehended because they were actually dumb enough to drop off their film at the Walgreen's Photo Department. Same thing happened to my neighbor when he tried to get his "girl and her horse" pictures developed from his trip to Tijuana.

    Wasn't I just telling Doo Doo that the next attack would probably come from INSIDE the US?

    Luckily these guys are morons.

    Give credit to the store clerk, and the FBI (the informant). Great job.

    This will probably get swept under by the media, just like the Lackawanna 6- even though they are both huge successes

    I feel the opposite, these idiots asked the guy to burn the video of them getting all Jihaded up to DVD...not exactly covert IMHO.

    Craigman, you sir, are the shit.

    That's a compliment, btw. Figured it was better than "LOL" or "funny post".

    I live about 2 miles from there
    I used to live near there. I lived in the Plumstead/New Egypt area. I had those big planes from Maguire Air Force Base flying over my house all of the time.
