Three separate terrorist plots have been interrupted in the US. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to get into any analysis or commentary, but here is some good coverage:

Terror Suspect Is Charged With Plot to Use Bombs

Terrorism Suspect Planned Peroxide Bombs, Officials Say, WP

Tower bomb plot in series of US terror cases, Times

Illinois man charged in plot to bomb federal offices, Reuters

Men accused of unrelated bomb plots in Ill., Texas, AP

For some interesting snooping (thank you to a friend who wishes to remain anonymous for this idea), plug the name of the suspect in the IL plot, Michael Finton, into Facebook. He only has a few friends and is a fan of Khalid Yasin, a radical figure with an interesting website, who once claimed that the AIDS virus was created at a US military base with cooperation from four other governments.

Post comments here if you find anything else interesting.
