There is somethong deeply wrong with a government immigration system that keeps importing and giving citizenship to people that hate the USA.
Yawn. This story will end up like almost every other one since 9/11/01. Big lurid headlines until these guys get an attorney who forces the government to show some evidence between what they cherrypicked for the indictment and the press conference. And then, when it's time to actually put up, the "confidential informant" won't be available, or actually presenting evidence will be a risk to State Security, or something, and we'll never hear another thing about it.
It's actually very comforting to know that the only people plotting terrorism in the US are people who say things like, "Just drive into, like, the baddest military base. If I'm gonna do that, I'm gonna take out a whole base. Might as well make it, like, big, ya know." And that such people can't stop telling everybody what their plans are, and leave such a clear digital trail (Skype? For real?), and don't ever seem to get anywhere near doing anything until they run into that fortuitous FBI Confidential Informant.
Either there are super-spy FBI Confidential Informants on every block, or the only threat to our national security and personal safety is in fact these Confidential Informants. Because nothing ever seems to happen without them.
