    Default FBI: Search of Minnesota home thwarts terror attack

    MINNEAPOLIS — The FBI says it believes authorities thwarted a terror attack in a search of a western Minnesota home.

    The FBI arrested 24-year-old Buford Rogers on Friday, after a search of his home in Montevideo turned up Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms.

    The FBI said Monday it believes the search and arrest potentially saved the lives of several local residents. The FBI says a terror plot was discovered through analysis of intelligence gathered by local, state and federal authorities.

    Rogers is in federal custody. He was arrested Friday on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.

    Dozens of FBI agents, Montevideo Police, Chippewa County Deputies and the Bloomington Bomb Squad surrounded a Montevideo mobile home park yesterday and arrested a man on weapons and explosive charges.

    The operation began around 11 a.m. at the Northdale Mobile Home Court on Benson Road, just north of Highway 7 in Montevideo. Officers arrested 24-year-old Buford Rogers without incident.

    The Montevideo American News reports inside the officers found an AK-47 assault rifle, molotov cocktails and pipe bombs. Rogers is expected to make his first appearance in federal court Monday or Tuesday.

    Neighbors told the newspaper Rogers was often seen wearing Army camoflage and there were anti-government signs outside his trailer.

    An FBI affidavit says agents from the domestic terrorism squad found the items at the home of Rogers who has a past conviction for felony burglary and is not allowed to have a firearm.

    It's not clear why officials conducted the search at Rogers' home. A spokesman for the FBI says the investigation is ongoing, but the public is not in danger. (KWLM-MNN-Montevideo American News)

    But if he kills all the golfers, they'll lock him up and throw away the key.

    So, precrime?
    Most of the terrorist caught since 9/11 have been caught in entrapment schemes, I wonder if this was how they found him.

    Usually unstable losers(like this guy) are targeted in such cases, raising the question of if we need to be "protected" from manufactured threats. These entrapment schemes have a creepy vibe to them, but they DO require people to be interested in harming others.

    Either way you look at it, this world is fucking twisted. Violence is the seed of violence.

    I am glad that nobody was hurt but I can also see this being used as justification for more 1984-esque surveillance.
