Law enforcement officials have arrested seven people on terrorism conspiracy charges in connection with the early stages of a plot to attack Chicago’s Sears Tower and other buildings as well. The arrests occurred in Miami. Those arrested include five American citizens, one illegal alien from Haiti, and one resident alien. At least some of the suspects apparently are members of a radical African-American Muslim group and at least one had taken “an al Qaeda oath.”
Officials say the would-be terrorists were in the early stages of planning and posed no imminent threat because law enforcement agents were all over them.
For her part, Michelle Malkin is all over the story.
