Terror Plot in Seattle

Here we go again… A planned terror plot at a Seattle military recruiting station could have been worse than the Fort Hood attack. The two ex-convicts behind the plan were hoping to get attention from the media with their plot and even imagined headlines.

Detention hearings are scheduled next week for Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph Anthony Davis, 33, of Seattle, and Walli Mujahidh, also known as Frederick Domingue Jr., 32, of Los Angeles. The men were arrested Wednesday night when they showed up at a warehouse garage to pick up machine guns they planned to use in the attack, authorities said. The weapons had been rendered inoperable by federal agents and posed no risk to the public.

These two would be terrorists were planning an attack similar to the Fort Hood massacre. They were going to use machine guns and grenades to try and kill everyone in sight. The intended target was a military processing center. There's also a daycare near the center.

The suspects are reportedly from the Southern California area and both became Muslim converts in prison. Authorities were tipped off by someone the men tried to recruit. He helped render the weapons inoperable.

Apparently the suspects were impressed by the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, which claimed 13 lives, and were angry with a case in Washington State where five soldiers are charged with allegedly killing three Afghan civilians.

This case marks the eighth time in the past two years that attacks have been planned or carried out against military installations in the United States.

Live Long and Prosper....
