The New York Times Friday reported two men were arrested in Seattle earlier in the week for plotting to attack a military processing center.
Unfortunately, the Times chose to omit the fact the pair were radical Muslim converts with one of them actually idolizing Osama bin Laden:
Federal law enforcement officials have arrested two men who they say planned to attack a military processing center here using machine guns and grenades.That's right - a day care center, meaning that had they been successful, innocent children might have been slaughtered.
The men — Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, also known as Joseph A. Davis, 33, of Seattle, and Walli Mujahidh, also known as Frederick Domingue Jr., 32, of Los Angeles — were arrested late Wednesday and charged with conspiracy to murder federal officers and employees, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and several firearms-related charges.
The processing center, called the Military Entrance Processing Station, is used to help process new enlistees. The building is in an industrial area south of downtown. The government said it also houses a federally run day care center.
Yet the Times chose to omit from its report an important detail: these men were radical Muslim converts.
