Two Arrested In Seattle Military Recruiting Station Attack Plot

The Associated Press reports that “two men have been arrested in a plot to use machine guns and grenades in an attack on a military recruiting station in Seattle that also houses a daycare.”

The two suspects are named Joseph Anthony Davis, from Seattle, and Frederick Domingue Jr., from Los Angeles.  Their possible motives for the attack are unclear.

Oh, wait a second, this might clear up the motives: they also use the names “Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif” and “Walli Mujahidh.”

The authorities were tipped off by “someone the men tried to recruit as a participant,” according to the Associated Press.  There are supposed to be “video and audio recordings of the men discussing their plans to attack the station.”

The charges include “conspiracy to murder officers and employees of the United States, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, and possession of firearms in furtherance of crimes of violence.”  Also, Abdul-Latif (that would be the former Joseph Davis of Seattle) is upon two illegal firearms charges.

U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan said in a press release, “This is a sobering reminder of our need to be vigilant and that our first line of defense is the people who live in our community. We were able to disrupt the plot because someone stepped forward and reported it to authorities.”

Is anyone still whining about the hearings Rep. Peter King (R-NY) held on Muslim radicalization?
