ABC: Active Terror Cell Prepared NYC Attack, Officials Say

They caught the guys for lying. Under the old administration, a lot of people might have suspected that, if they couldn’t find more than that, then perhaps the administration was simply making stuff up. I don’t have the same suspicions about the Obama administration, but it would be nice if we could actually charge terror suspects with actually planning actual terrorist acts. I know it’s not easy, and I’m not knocking the agents – I just get uncomfortable, after the Bush years, when we call people terrorists simply because they lied (as illegal as lying is to an FBI agent).
