Sears Tower Targeted For Terror


ABC News has the details:

ABC News has learned that federal agents, including the FBI, are launching a series of raids tonight targeting a suspected terror cell based in Miami.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, the group allegedly planned to bomb the FBI building in Miami and the Sears Tower in Chicago.

The group has been under surveillance for some time and was infilitrated by a government informant who allegedly led them to believe he was an Islamic radical. The suspects are described as African Americans and at least one man of Caribbean descent.

I guess that NSA "domestic spying" program works pretty good, doesn't it? (Yes, I know it sounds like a classic infiltration operation, but still.) At least one was an illegal alien.

This operation is on-going, expect more details to follow.

As always, Allah is on top of it. It's almost like he has something to do with Islamic terrorism...

Update: moved D.U. quote to it's own thread.

In a series of books, and a rather unpopular, but popular RP game, called ShadowRun, there is a description of the world.

It's a post appocolyptic world, created by terrorism and neglect, and the Chicago Loop, is no longer known as "the loop" since, in 2013, there was a seperatist terrorist action against the Sears Tower, that led to a flood, and an uncontrollable fire ravaging the downtown area of chicago.

No longer was "the loop" called "the loop" in this world of stories, and gameplay, rather, it was nicknamed "the noose."

If the sears tower were to TILT over, to the east? it would destroy most of the major buildings in the down town area, and it might initiation a domino destruction of a GREAT many buildings in the downtown area.

The Sears Tower, isn't a fraction the demonstration construction might that the Twin Towers were. The only thing in Chicago that is comparable is Hancock.


If the little dicked cowards of Islam wanted to do real damage? They would have hit Chicago, that is why this is a MAJOR threat.
