Dodging A Terrorist Attack

According to Steven Emerson, who appeared tonight on The O'Reilly Factor, this was the most advanced plotting of a terrorist attack since 9/11.
From the Washington Post:
According to the documents, U.S. authorities were alerted to the group's existence by a video store employee, who said a man had brought in a recording of 10 young men shooting assault weapons and shouting jihadist slogans. The man asked for the videotape to be copied onto a DVD, the charging documents said.

The store complied, but also turned the material over to the FBI. In March 2006, an FBI informant established a relationship with one of the men believed to be in the videotape, the charging documents say. Eventually, two informants infiltrated the group, recording numerous conversations and events over the next year.


Officials today called the video store clerk an "unsung hero" but declined to identify him for the time being, although they said he would eventually be called to testify in the case.
Score one for the "John Does"!
