Reuters reports that the imprisoned founder of a radical Islamic group and three followers were indicted on Wednesday for plotting attacks on Los Angeles-area military facilities and synagogues, the Israeli consulate and El Al airlines.
The four men had purchased firearms with silencers, investigated making bombs and were ready to carry out attacks when two of them were caught robbing a gas station to fund the operation, U.S. Attorney Debra Yang told a news conference in Los Angeles.
"The evidence in this case indicates that the conspirators were on the verge of launching their attack," she said, adding that the arrest had exposed "a chilling plot based on one man's interpretation of Islam."
I was feeling pretty good that they caught the bad guys before they carried out thei evil plans. Then I read that the evil doer wannabees robbed 11 gas stations across Southern California before they were caught.
