Fort Dix Five Convicted

In a victory in the War on Terror the five Muslim immigrants were convicted Monday of plotting to massacre U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix. The punch line of the article?
Defense lawyers argued that the alleged plot was all talkā€”that the men weren't seriously planning anything and that they were goaded by two paid FBI informants.
9/11 was just talk until it became action. Is the lawyer asserting the feds should have waited until after the attack?

Large, Conspiracy..."planning to do something illegal or wrong." Conspiring to harm another person might not have the same penalty that actually committing that which has been planned, but it is nonetheless illegal to do. The world would certainly be a different place if we had figured out the conspiracy before 9-11-01...or taken the news seriously enough to have followed up on tips we had. Merry Christmas. Frenchie
