    A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas.

In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives...

These officials disclosed the number of participating companies in order to provide context for a series of disclosures about the NSA's domestic collection policies.

    A controversy has broken out this week that epitomizes how bold the Islamic supremacist forces in the U.S. have become, and how weak and supine those who are charged with protecting the public have become. The New York Times has run a news story and an indignant unsigned editorial about the showing of The Third Jihad, a relatively tepid anti-jihad film, to New York Police Department personnel. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately got into the act, compelling New York’s ever ready to accommodate Mayor Michael Bloomberg to apologize and denounce the film, which he almost certainly has...

The department said it had no "specific, credible intelligence" of an imminent attack, but that there were a wide range of potential threats and areas subject to sabotage....

    When the history of the War on Terror is written, 2009 may be seen as the year the enemy began to shift from Islamist terrorists outside the US to homegrown Jihadists. Despite the fact that it was predicted two years ago, many are still surprised (or unwilling to recognize), the Islamist threat from within. Back in 2007 the Council on Foreign Relations reported: Experts say it is quite likely the next terrorist attack in the United States will not be the work of well-trained al-Qaeda operatives sent from abroad, but rather that of an American citizen.

    A federal judge ruled on April 18 that 24-year-old William Jensen Cottrell should serve more than seven years in federal prison and pay more than $3.5 million in restitution for an August 2003 firebombing spree that damaged or destroyed some 125 sport utility vehicles at dealerships and homes outside Los Angeles. Cottrell will be required to serve at least 85 percent of the eight-year, four-month sentence handed down by U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner. Cottrell was convicted in November 2004 of seven counts of arson and one of conspiracy. He was acquitted of the most serious charge, using a...

    BOMB THREATS CLOSE WAL-MART TWICE IN DAY Police evacuated Richmond's Wal-Mart and blew up a suspicious package after a bomb threat yesterday afternoon. Less than two hours after the store reopened, a second threat caused another evacuation. The bag, which police described as a duffel bag or suitcase, was in the parking lot a few feet from the store's propane tank exchange area. Willard Reardon, public affairs officer for the Richmond Police Department, said the bag appeared to contain videotapes and papers. Police had not determined whether the package was related to the threat. Robots were used to examine and...

    INDIAN HEAD, Md. -- A pricey suburban Washington subdivision that has been criticized by environmentalists burned early Monday, destroying a dozen homes under construction next to an environmental preserve. Thirty homes were damaged in the Hunters Brooke development, where homes range from $400,000 to $500,000, said Faron Taylor, a deputy state fire marshal. There were no reports of injuries and no word yet on the cause, said Charles County spokeswoman Nina Voehl. The Sierra Club called the development "quintessential sprawl" in its Fall 2000 sprawl report, noting it is far from existing infrastructure and "threatens a fragile wetland and important...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - An explosion that blew out a number of windows at a Boston-area laboratory specializing in stem-cell research was caused by a pipe bomb, local police said on Friday. No one was wounded in Thursday's early morning blast at Watertown, Massachusetts-based Amaranth Bio, which says on its Web site its technology is focused on organ regeneration and that it is working on cures for diabetes and liver disorders. In a statement, Watertown police confirmed the explosion was the result of a pipe bomb and said they believe someone broke into the facility. No arrests have been made, police...

    WINTERSET, Iowa (AP) - Visitors to this Iowa town can visit the birthplace of John Wayne, tour the nearby bridges of Madison County - and buy enough fertilizer to blow up an office building. Ammonium nitrate is one of the most common farm fertilizers worldwide, used primarily in the production of pasture crops. Increasingly, countries in Europe and other parts of the world are clamping down on its sale - but not the United States, where rural feed stores such as BB&P Grain Handlers in Winterset sell it for $240 a ton. The product is deadly if soaked in kerosene...

    Several months after the Black Panther Party’s shootout with the Los Angeles Police Department in 1969, the militant organization was in disarray. Two leaders, each supported by a block of followers, emerged from the rubble:  Huey Newton and Eldridge Cleaver. Cleaver was a wanted fugitive and had departed the United States for Algeria. A group of Cleaver-faction former Panthers started a new group, the “Nation of Nigretia.” They described themselves as a country without land, ostensibly, descendents of black slaves brought from Africa and now spread throughout the U.S. It took little time for a sixth investigative sense to tell the FBI agents assigned...

    HOUSTON — One evening two winters ago, a man in Staten Island, N.Y., absent-mindedly flipped through his mail. Inside one envelope was a stack of fake documents, including United Nations (news - web sites) and Defense Department identification cards, and a note: "We would hate to have this fall into the wrong hands."
  • Three from Oregon wanted for questioning in biotech explosions

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Three people, at least two of them from Oregon, are wanted for questioning by the FBI about last week's double bombings at the Emeryville, Calif., headquarters of biotechnology company Chiron Corp. No one was injured in the blasts early last Thursday, but a group called ``The Revolutionary Cells'' claimed responsibility in an anonymous e-mail and warned that the company's employees may be attacked at their homes. Animal rights activists have targeted Chiron because of its contracts with Huntingdon Life Sciences, an English company that uses animals to test drugs. The three people are Bjorn Einertsen, 25,...

    SULTAN, Wash. (AP) - Snohomish County mink farmers, who produce almost half the mink raised in Washington, worry there will be more ecoterrorism attacks like Monday's release of about 10,000 animals from a family farm here. ``These farmers are on pins and needles,'' said Teresa Platt, executive director of the industry group Fur Commission USA. ``People should be on alert because the pattern with these groups is to hit again and in a short period of time.'' The FBI, which is leading the investigation, suspects an out-of-state group is responsible for the mink release at the Roesler Brothers Fur Farm...
