MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The FBI believes authorities disrupted a localized terror attack in its planning stages when they arrested a man after converging on a western Minnesota mobile home that contained Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms, the agency said Monday.

I don’t know.
To me this kinda stuff seems like could be trying to distract from Benghazi hearings.
Did they work at MSP?
Needed a distraction??
Amish living in trailers?
Damn must be some of those Southern Boys with Bibles and Guns
And a Confederate flag w/ Skynard runnin full blast! Prob members of the Tea Party!
Isn’t Mall of the Americas in Minnesota? Just saying...
There will be an event within the next two weeks, to wipe Benghazi off all front pages - the question is how many people will die to accomplish this?
Obama and Hillary are getting their nuts grilled by this Benghazi thing, for sure...I guess you’re right!!!!
I'll be interested in seeing if they get more specific. "Good enough to convince a judge to give them a search warrant" is no longer good enough for me.
From what we’ve seen lately with these kinds of stories.. they may get less specific, more specific.. or change their story entirely!!
Trust they will roll up an ongoing investigation every week or so now, regardless what the strength of the case may be. CYA time.
Kinda like the Ricen scare.
Guy gets arrested.. then oops it wasn’t him!
His name is Buford?
The timing is suspicious.
They could also just be trying to look like they are on top of terrorism after their recent EPIC FAIL with the Boston bombing.
I'm giving the Feds the benefit of the doubt. The possession of arms does not in itself indicate a terrorist plot. Otherwise, Duck Dynasty would be considered terrorists.
They've not shown their evidence of why they believe this guy was planning something, but something must have triggered them. Hopefully it wasn't just an overly suspicious neighbor.
As kids we used to but aerosol cans in fires and shoot them. Very dangerous and stupid and fun. Today we would be accused of setting off bombs.
They just had to come up with a Redneck doing something, Chrissy Matthews will be happy now!
A hillbilly collects guns and makes pipe bombs in his trailer out in the sticks, its terrorism!
If he turns out to be mentally ill, kiss this story goodbye.
Neighbors described Rogers as a man who dressed like a militia member and who had anti-government signs in his front lawn.
How did they find them? Through welfare records?
WABC radio all over this...
Well he is a felon with guns! But they don’t say why he was a threat. I think it was because he was only 24 years old, Liberal and an anarchist type, possessing Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and several firearms.
Glad the FBI nipped this one in the bud. I know there was some criticism by some against the Bureau for failing to detect the Boston Marathon bombing but my heart goes out to these guys who work so hard to protect our country whether going after terrorists, mobsters or crooked officials. This is one government agency I do find generally competent and clean although of course there are exceptions and mistakes from time to time as in any human institution.
He’s not a mooselimb so it’s okay to pre-arrest him..
Did this guy have a plot or just weapons???
That’s the airport code. Probably figured they where TSA.
Another lone wolf?
......still looking for that reichtag fire.....
An Austrian, a fabian, and a keynsian walk into a bar
The keynsian complains his glass is dirty and that the owner should manage better.
The fabian just says,”give it time”
The austrian buys the round...
When this distraction doesn’t “take,” they’ll add the words “bird flu.”
Distraction. They probably was watching this guy for a while.
ANYTHING we see this week is a distraction. I’m not going to the mall this week. I would not put anything past the left.
The Airport ID for the airport, aka, Minneapolis-Saint-Paul.
Ah gotcha! Thanks!
The Hutaree were “planning an attack” as well. Today they’ve all been acquitted and are suing.
Don’t you think this Amish thing is getting worn out? It is not even silly anymore.(If it ever was!)
The Hutaree?? Lol
Oh, boy! Really dangerous.
First of all, you simply can’t believe anything the government or it’s propaganda arm (the media) reports or suggests. This guy may have been preparing to go after someone for killing his dog or something. Or, the molotov cocktails could have been for eradicating wasp nests, and the explosives for removing stumps.
The FBI caught a felon burglar with a gun who has had his 2nd Ammendment right revoked through due process after the commision of a felony.
The rest of the story is manufactured by the AP.
He was only charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Not terrorism. Not posession of bombs or bomb components.
Lighten up, Francis...
The new 'search the ham sandwich cause it might have mayonnaise on it" principle.
Was he mad the Viking cut Kluwe?
I still think it’s funny lol
And what exactly is a “suspected pipe bomb”? Threaded metal pipe laying outside? And who makes up molotov cocktails ahead of time? Could it be that he simply had some empty bottles laying around?
