The FBI, you say? Law enforcement? Interesting, ain’t it?
The federal government Monday charged six alleged “Islamic radicals” with plotting to kill U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix in New Jersey.
The six were arrested Monday night, the U.S. attorney’s office in New Jersey said in a written statement, and are expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Camden, New Jersey, on Tuesday afternoon.
“Their alleged intention was to conduct an armed assault on the army base and to kill as many soldiers as possible,” the office said.
Former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie said in 2004: “Terrorism is not a law enforcement matter, as John Kerry repeatedly says.” Increasingly, like much of the right’s talking points, this seems to be less and less true.
