FBI prevented a terrorist plot in Cleveland

The FBI have foiled a terrorist plot that involved a foreign group who planned to attack on the 4th of July:
Law enforcement officials have arrested a person on suspicion of trying to help a militant foreign group's alleged plan to attack downtown Cleveland, Ohio, on the Fourth of July, an FBI spokeswoman said on Monday.

She declined to give additional details ahead of a news conference at 9:15 a.m. EDT (1315 GMT).

Like many other U.S. cities, downtown Cleveland puts on a fireworks display to celebrate the Independence Day holiday on July 4. Cities typically ramp up security around such events.

In 2015, U.S. law enforcement officials said they had arrested more than 10 people inspired by the Islamic State militant group ahead of the Fourth of July holiday, saying the arrests had disrupted planned attacks.

Eight people were killed in New York on Oct. 31, Halloween, when an Uzbek immigrant was accused of using a truck to plow them down on a bike path.
It's very fortunate the feds are doing their job here, and stopped what could've become a most horrifying incident. Now let's hope the festivities proceed without incident, and that everyone can enjoy the 4th of July.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
