[quote] The goal was to ”use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives)
against persons and property within the United States,” prosecutors said
in a news release. [/quote]

1. Good show by the FBI.

2. I hope that the prosecutors know that an ordinary bomb is not a
weapon of mass destruction, even if reporters call it one. Weapons of
mass destruction are nuclear weapons, poison gas and biological weapons
that will kill at least 600 people.
