A convert to islam terror plot !!!
Once again, and adding to the list of John Mohammad the Washington snipper and John Walker Lind the American Taliban, Now its Michael Finton known as Talib Islam is the latest to the list of those psychopaths that get attracted to islam. Read the story in detail below:
A would-be terrorist was arrested in Springfield, Illinois, for allegedly attempting to detonate a truck bomb to blow up a federal building and kill its occupants, officials said Thursday.Authorities were waiting Wednesday for Michael Finton, also known as Talib Islam, who unwittingly had been dealing with undercover FBI agents continually monitoring his activities.
Justice Department officials said Finton, 29, of Decatur, Illinois,drove a vehicle he believed contained a ton of explosives to the Paul Findley Federal Building and Courthouse in Springfield. He got out ofthe truck, got into a waiting car with an undercover agent, and then,when he was a few blocks away, attempted to detonate the bomb with aremote-control device.
"When he pushed the button, nothing happened except he got handcuffs slapped on him," said one JusticeDepartment official familiar with the case.
The truck contained inactive explosives.
Authorities said Finton idolized convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh-- an American who was captured fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan-- and said he wanted to go to a training camp abroad to become ajihadist fighter.
Finton made an initial appearance in court in Springfield on Thursdayto face charges of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted murder of federal employees, according to Acting U.S.Attorney Jeffrey Lang.
This alleged plot drives home the stark reality that we must avoid complacency and remain ever vigilant to threats that violent extremists may pose to public safety," Lang said. The affidavit provided incourt said Finton had received funds from an individual in Saudi Arabia, which he used for a month-long trip to that country in April and May of 2008.
The sting operation became active in February 2009. Two weeks ago, Finton met with an undercover agent and was told the vehicle he would drive would carry about a ton of explosives. Finton said civilian casualties resulting from the bombing would be justified, according to the affidavit.
Now to our muslim friends, do us a favor and stop bragging about all these converts to islam, its becoming clear that they are losers, mentally disturbed, psychopaths,...etc.
I welcome the feedback,
