Judge Denies Acquittal Motions for Fort Dix Islamic Terrorists

BREAKING NEWS 5 March 2009:  According to a breaking news report from the Burlington (NJ) County Times:

A federal judge rejected the bids of the Fort Dix five to reverse the guilty verdicts and order a new trial for the men convicted of plotting to kill U.S. soldiers. U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler denied the motions for acquittal during a hearing this morning in Camden.

“There was overwhelming evidence that the jury could find guilt,” he said.

The five foreign-born Muslims were convicted in December of conspiracy to commit murder. The government said the men planned a heavily-armed, jihad-inspired attack and had identified Fort Dix as a viable target.
