That Was Close

The Miami terror unit had their first hearing today. It looks like they were simply garden variety IslamoBuddoChristoGnostoTao Freemason terrorists. They ran into problems when they went looking for help from two men who were FBI informants. From the Miami Herald:

The investigation began last fall when Batiste allegedly tried to obtain financial and military support from two men of Arabic descent who worked as informants for the FBI.

One was a North Miami convenience store owner who got acquainted with Batiste, the group's ringleader, in October. He introduced Batiste to the other man, a veteran FBI informant with immigration problems who posed as an al Qaeda representative.

These guys were obviously trying to obtain slushies of mass destruction, probably lime. I think this case might become an embarrassment for the FBI.
