Kansas ➠ Muslim Convert To Plead Guilty In WMD Suicide Plot Against Airport Aimed At Inflicting “Maximum Carnage”
A Muslim convert, Terry Loewen planned a suicide bomb attack aimed at inflicting “maximum carnage” that would have killed and injured hundreds of people during the busy holiday travel season. The final plan — hatched in an undercover scheme with two FBI agents posing as co-conspirators — was to detonate the device between terminals and Loewen would die as a martyr, prosecutors said.
At first the defense tried the Hamas-CAIR ruse of accusing the FBI of “entrapment.” That clearly didn’t fly, but more to the point, isn’t it the jihadic doctrine that entraps? How is it that this “misunderstanding” of Islam became so widespread? Where are Muslims in the US teaching against the ideology that gives rise to this violence?
Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques. If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against this view of Islam.
“Man accused of plotting suicide bomb attack at Kansas airport plans to change his plea,”
WICHITA, Kan. – A man accused of plotting a suicide bomb attack at a Wichita airport told a federal court Friday that he intends to change his not-guilty plea.
A docket notation shows the change-of-plea hearing for Terry L. Loewen is set for Monday afternoon before U.S. District Judge Monti Belot in Wichita.
Loewen, a former avionics technician, was arrested in December 2013 after authorities said he tried to bring a van filled with inert explosives onto the tarmac at Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport, now called the Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport. He is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to use an explosive device to damage property and attempting to give material support to al-Qaida. More
