Chicago’s Sears Tower Targeted by Terrorists

“FBI agents in an undercover sting operation arrested seven terrorism suspects in Miami on [June 22] who allegedly were plotting to attack the Sears Tower in Chicago, the FBI headquarters in Miami and other U.S. buildings,” reports the Chicago Tribune. “… The men were all Muslims who thought they were plotting ‘in conjunction with Al Qaeda’ but they really were dealing with law-enforcement undercover agents.” They “were entrapped by a federal informant, lawyers for two of the suspects said,” according to Reuters. The plot “was ‘more aspirational than operational,’ John S. Pistole, deputy director of the F.B.I., … said,” according to the New York Times.
