In unrelated cases, feds arrest men who plotted to blow up courthouse, skyscraper

Editor's Note: These apparently unrelated arrests demonstrate the clear and present danger posed to our nation by what counterterrorism analysts call 'lone wolf jihadists.' These individuals — who tend to not have ties to the organizations they idolize — act on their own to create mayhem and death. Local, state, and federal law enforcement remain on the front lines in identifying and disrupting their plots. PoliceOne will provide updates as additional details emerge. Meanwhile, we encourage you to take advantage of the wide array of links and resources below.

Los Angeles Times

Two men who professed devotion to Al Qaeda -- one a convert to Islam, the other a Jordanian native -- were charged Thursday with plotting to blow up buildings in Illinois and Texas.

In both cases, the men thought they were working with Al Qaeda operatives when they were really working with undercover federal agents.
