The US Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez has suggested seven men arrested on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks on landmark buildings wanted to wage war on the United States. Prosecutors say the group had a long list of targets.
“These individuals wished to wage a ‘full ground war against the United States’ – that quote is from the investigation of these individuals who also allegedly stated the desire to “kill all the devils we can,” Gonzalez said. The seven were arrested on Thursday when heavily armed police and FBI agents swooped on a warehouse in one of the poorest areas of Miami. It is reported they were infiltrated by a US informant posing as an al Qaeda agent. The FBI says the group did not pose any immediate danger.
