"Today we dodged a bullet," FBI agent J.P. Weis said yesterday. "In fact, when you look at the type of weapons that this group was trying to purchase, we may have dodged a lot of bullets."
Six foreign-born Muslims were arrested Tuesday, charged with plotting to attack New Jersey's Fort Dix Army base with assault weapons. Their goal was "to kill as many American soldiers as possible" in attacks with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and guns, prosecutors charge-- a plot that was foiled when the six brought video of themselves playing with guns to a store to be copied, leading the clerk to alert authorities.
Like most violent crime in the present era, it appears a video game connection haunts this case; perhaps responsibility for the thwarted attack rests squarely on the shoulders of one of the arrested men's employers-- delivery guy Serdar Tatar worked at Super Mario's Pizza.
Public commentary is expected from Jack Thompson as soon as he begins his daily delusion that people listen to him.
