This is quite a big story, which we should cover, but the article definately needs more work. I haven't had a chance to look into the story fully yet, but I imagine that they will be issues in reporting the plans as fact if they haven't been completely proven yet...

Not sure how big the story really is. I just read over the idictment. The "support" it lists which they asked for and received from the informant consists of "military boots", "digital video camera", "rental vehicle". They asked for other items, like radios, cash, rental vehicles, weapons and uniforms. That does not look like a high level of organization to me. According to the indictment it seems that the most damning evidence against them is that they swore an "oath of loyality" to al-Qaeda and did a lot of talking about what they might want to blow up and took some video footage of buildings. Good that these guys are off the street, but according to the indictment this is not nearly as big of a deal as the media makes of it. --vonbergm 01:03, 24 June 2006 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for looking into that - I had suspected that that might be the case.... Frankie Roberto 01:20, 24 June 2006 (UTC)Reply
title needs npoving. CNN interviews reveal that one of the "terrorists" the feds said was called "Sunni" is actually a guy who has been called "Sonny" since he was a little kid. 03:13, 24 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

Really? The terrorists actually requested that it was removed - or is it blatant vandalism? --Skenmy(talk)|(ideas) 19:46, 24 June 2006 (UTC)Reply
