Yet another example of how the Bush Administration kept us safe from another Jihadist attack on the homeland.
A federal jury on Monday convicted five men of conspiracy to kill American soldiers at the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey last year, but acquitted them of attempted murder, according to the Associated Press.
The jury deliberated for six days before returning its verdict against three brothers — Shain, Eljvir and Dritan Duka — and two other defendants, Mohamad Shnewer and Serdar Tatar.
The men, all Muslim immigrants who lived in Philadelphiaâ€™s southern New Jersey suburbs, face a maximum of life in prison.
Federal prosecutors said that the five men were planning to attack Fort Dix and the military personnel within it, and had taken concrete steps to train and arm themselves. During the menâ€™s trial, prosecutors argued that evidence, including hundreds of secretly taped conversations between the defendants and F.B.I. informants, jihadist propaganda videos recovered from one suspectâ€™s computer, and videotapes of an illegal purchase of several machine guns, showed they intended to carry out an armed assault on the base.
They are living among us, and we can’t afford the Left’s denials that the War on Terror even exists.
