So I’m going to actually use my BLOG for blogging!! =) so here we go. Apparently some rather screwed up asshats were going to kill a bunch of soldiers at Fort Dix. The spin on all the talk radio has been wild. With claims of how network news shows have spun it this way, or that.. so I thought I’d do a test.. I went to 4 news websites and here are my findings on what their point of view is.

The summary so far:
6 people arrested in plot to kill soldiers at fort Dix and possible other military installations. The FBI investigating for over 12 months, and credited a clerk who tipped them off with a video with setting them up for the fall.

CNN doesn’t even have it on their front page… I had to search for “dix” and then sort by relevance.. the first article was from 1999!! I finally found this one.

MSNBC News
MSNBC has a video up on the topic that says the following.
Six jailed in Fort Dix plot
May 8: Six young men in their 20s are behind bars, accused of planning to shoot up a U.S. army post — Fort Dix in New Jersey — to kill American soldiers. NBC’s Pete Williams reports.

Their summary and point of view from the video!
They seem to be unclear if it was a Terror plot or not. Every text piece in the video has a question mark after it.. like there’s any doubt these guys were going to kill people… However, they do bring to light that the FBI was ALL over them for the last 13 months.

CBS News
CBC has on their front page flash news area “Fort Dix Plot called “New” form of terror.” As well under “Most Popular” they have “BFI: Army Base “Dodged a Bullet
CBS looks to be covering the story with the right angle, here is a snippet.
“If we didn’t get that tip,” said U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie, “I couldn’t be sure what would happen.” FBI agent J.P. Weis called the clerk the “unsung hero” of the case….Five were charged with conspiracy to kill U.S. military personnel; the sixth, Abdullahu, was charged with aiding and abetting illegal immigrants in obtaining weapons.

“After the video clerk’s tip, investigators said they infiltrated the group with two informants and bided their time while they secretly recorded the defendants.

The six were arrested Monday night trying to buy AK-47 assault weapons, M-16s and other weapons from an FBI informant, authorities said. It was not clear when the alleged attack was to take place.”

Fox News
Fox has it at the TOP of their page. Here is a summary of Fox’s point of view.
The fox story goes into who they were but doesn’t touch so much on what the their point of view is. Where they terrorists? killers? or just people who are not understood. A link to another article in that one points to a good one where they praise the store clerk who notified the police about the video that was filmed and sights them as “six men from Yugoslavia and the Middle East who were charged Tuesday with plotting to slaughter scores of American soldiers at Fort Dix and perhaps other military installations in the Northeast.”

A shopkeeper alerted the FBI about a “disturbing” video he had been asked to copy onto a DVD. The video showed 10 young men in their early 20s shooting assault weapons at a firing range earlier that month. The group called for jihad (a holy war) and shouted in Arabic ‘Allah Akbar’ (God is great).

March 2006
An FBI informant infiltrated the group by developing a relationship with Mohamad Shnewer.

May 26, 2006
Shnewer told the informant to look at particular DVD files on his laptop. One file contained what appeared to be the last will and testament of at least two of the hijackers involved in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks; another contained images of Osama bin Laden and other Islamic extremists calling on the viewer to join the jihadist movement.

July 7, 2006
A second informant was approached by six men, one of whom, later identified as Eljvir Duka, invited the informant to his home.

July 29, 2006
In a meeting recorded by the second informant, Shnewer showed several videos on his laptop computer that depicted armed attacks on U.S. military personnel.

Aug. 1-2, 2006
Shnewer told the first informant that he, Serdar Tatar, Dritan Duka, Eljvir Duka, Shain Duka and others were planning to attack a U.S. military base, and Shnewer specifically named Fort Dix, explaining that they could kill at least 100 soldiers by using rocket-propelled grenades.

Aug. 11, 2006
Shnewer and the first informant traveled to Fort Dix to conduct surveillance. During the trip, Shnewer told the informant the plan was to “hit four, five, six Humvees and light the whole place (up) and retreat completely without any losses.” The two also drove to Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Law enforcement officers also observed Shnewer drive by himself to Fort Monmouth later that day.

Nov. 28, 2006

Tatar told the first informant that he would provide a map of Fort Dix even though it could lead to his being deported. He expressed his continuing suspicions about the informant, saying, “I’m gonna do it. Whether you are or not (FBI), I’m gonna do it. Know why? … It doesn’t matter to me, whether I get locked up, arrested, or get taken away, it doesn’t matter. Or I die, doesn’t matter, I’m doing it in the name of Allah.” Later that evening, Tatar left a map of Fort Dix in an area near the informant’s residence.

Dec. 7, 2006
FBI agents interviewed Tatar, who denied being part of the plot, providing the map or knowing any of the parties involved.

March 28, 2007
At a meeting at a convenience store on Route 38 in Cherry Hill, the first informant gave Dritan Duka a list of weapons that could be acquired. The list, which the informant copied for law enforcement officials, included “AK-47, M-16, M-60 machine gun, RPG, Rocket, Handgun semiautomatic, Sig Sauer 9mm, Smith Wesson 9mm, Smith Wesson revolver.”

May 7, 2007
Six foreign-born Muslims are arrested trying to buy AK-47 assault weapons, M-16s and other weapons from an FBI informant. It was not clear when the alleged attack was to take place. Five were charged with conspiracy to kill U.S. military personnel; the sixth, was charged with aiding and abetting illegal immigrants in obtaining weapons.
