FBI Disrupts NYC Terrorist Plot

The FBI disrupted a terrorist plot to attack the train tunnels beneath the Hudson River -- the PATH commuter train tunnels. The plot involved at least eight people overseas, including an alleged al-Qaida operative arrested in Lebanon.

The martyrdom and explosive plan was intercepted early in the process. The plan appears to have been a water flood directed at New York's financial district.

The FBI had been monitoring the plot's development in Internet chat rooms for several months. They cited the arrest of the Lebanese suspect as a significant break in the investigation.

Monitoring Internet chat rooms? Who's sticking up for these terrorists' rights? Their privacy has been violated. ACLU, where are you in their time of need? Can't we plan a terrorist attack in the privacy of our own virtual world without the government getting in our way?
