    France said it had foiled a militant plot and arrested seven people in the southern port city of Marseille and the eastern city of Strasbourg. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the seven people of French, Moroccan and Afghan origin, aged 29 to 37, had been detained on Sunday. Two were arrested in Marseille. Most of the others, he said on Monday, were arrested in Strasbourg - a city where one of oldest and largest Christmas markets is set to open this week. “An attack has been foiled ...

  • Afghan national tied to Taliban, attack plot smuggled into US

    An Afghan national with ties to the Taliban — and a plot to carry out a terror attack somewhere in North America — was caught last fall after being smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico, an incident sure to further inflame the debate over national security risks at the border. The Afghan national’s alleged terror ties were not initially flagged in a terror database – and as a result, not initially reported – when the incident first came to light last November, according to Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who obtained Homeland Security documents on the incident. It was only later...

    DEVELOPING A Frenchman was arrested Thursday in the “advanced stages” of a plot to attack the country, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said. However, Cazeneuve said the man arrested in Argenteuil, on the northern outskirts of Paris, was not linked “at this stage” to recent attacks in Paris and Brussels. He said the person was implicated at a “high level” in the alleged plot but provided no details. At the same time, Sky News quoted Cazeneuve as saying five suspects had been arrested during anti-terror operations in the Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek.

    As Guy mentioned in his post, President Obama explained again yesterday why he decided to watch baseball alongside Raul Castro, do “the wave,” and chat with folks from ESPN. It had to do with not letting the terrorists disrupt our daily lives, while channeling how Boston pressed on following the marathon bombing in 2013, specifically how they taught the country a lesson by grieving, catching those responsible, and then getting on with their day-to-day activities, like shopping. He mentioned this in a joint press conference with Argentinian President  Mauricio Macri yesterday; Argentina is part of the president's planned Latin American trip. Obama...

    April 19th has come again this year, but it never quite goes. How can it? It stands out like a scar. It may no longer be the bleeding wound it was on that first April 19th -- except to those who were there and in a way still are. And can never leave. Their lives, their families, even their memories will never be whole again. The explosion that tore through the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, reducing it to a burned-out hulk, left more than an unforgettable stench in the air. It left a gaping hole in...

    While dozens of Islamic terrorists are being arrested across Europe in an unprecedented crack down on radical Islamic ideology, it’s comforting to know that here in the United States we don’t have a problem with radical Islamic terrorism. Oh sure, there is workplace violence and such. And terror plots… BUT these have nothing to do with the Prophet Mohammed, we now know. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t out of the woods yet.

    TERRORISTS are plotting to blow up five European passenger jets in a Christmas "spectacular", security experts say. The threat has been taken so seriously it came close to leading to an outright ban on all hand luggage, a senior insider has revealed. Mobile phones and electronic devices could still be banned from plane cabins, with the threat of a 9/11-style coordinated attack on London and other major cities feared imminent. The warning comes as Whitehall officials admit that a terror strike on the UK is now "almost inevitable" particularly with British jihadis returning from fighting alongside the Islamic State in...

Descriptions of John Nuttall by four people who knew him, combined with court records and his own postings online, portray a sometimes troubled man on the margins of society. Police have charged Nuttall and companion Amanda Korody with trying to set off three home-made pressure cooker bombs in a crowd celebrating the July 1 Canada Day holiday in Victoria, the capital of the Pacific province of British Columbia.

    After two days of investigation into the mass shooting at Fort Hood, investigators have tentatively concluded that the attack was not part of a terrorist plot. Rather, they have come to believe that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused in the shootings, acted out under a welter of emotional, ideological and religious pressures, according to interviews with federal officials who have been briefed on the inquiry. Investigators have not ruled out the possibility that Major Hasan believed he was carrying out an extremist’s suicide mission.
