"Then there was the liquid explosives lie that has forever changed airport security and there was never a shred of evidence produced that it was being planned much less carried out. It would be a joke were the whole thing not such a tragic travesty."
This gang have been charged and are awaiting trial. That does not happen here now without very strong evidence.
"Six guys are going to storm Fort Dix, is that right? Six guys. The scheme is so hare-brained that it's just another Bush administration ruse. "
I do not know Dix, but I was at Fort Knox about 10 years ago.
The post was not fenced and anyone could drive in and out. I was not aware of any live armed sentries. A regular site was sqauds of unarmed soldiers marching, running or training.
They would be easy pickings for a gunman who did not expect to survive.
I would dispach the gunmen each to an accomodation hut late at night. At Knox these were open and unguarded. Even with a semi automatic each man would wipe out most of the sleepers.<<<
Fort Dix is 31,000 acres and has a population of about 14,000 at any given time. At least that many more troops train there on weekends. It also functions as a major military prison. If you try to get on Fort Dix without proper authorization, you WILL be stopped.
Even with a depleted population due to deployments to Iraq, that's 31,000 acres for 6 guys to take control of. I really doubt it.
