North Carolina's Jihadis

Perhaps, a la Buffalo, Dick Cheney wants to launch an invasion? In a quiet town north of Raleigh, North Carolina, seven men stand accused of hatching a terror plot. One of the accused, Daniel Boyd, reportedly fought in Afghanistan in the 90s in the struggle to overthrow the Soviet occupiers, then returned to the U.S. and began recruiting other American radicals. Two of Boyd's sons came to share their father's views, and four others joined the ranks and began scheming terrorist operations abroad. Authorities say the men never planned attacks on U.S. soil, and apparently have no connection to al Qaeda. Federal agents have followed the men's activities for the last three years, and were apparently forced into action by the large amount of weapons the men stockpiled. Boyd's wife denies any wrongdoing, and some local North Carolinians remain skeptical. One neighbor told The New York Times, "I don't believe any of this. And it's going to take a whole lot of evidence to convince me otherwise."
