FBI: Raid Of Minn. Home That Netted Suspected Pipe Bombs, Firearms Disrupted 'Terror Attack'

MINNEAPOLIS — The FBI says a potential terror attack that it believes was disrupted by a mobile home raid was in its "planning stages" and the target was believed to be in western Minnesota.

Buford Rogers was arrested Friday after a search of the 24-year-old's Montevideo home turned up Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms.

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven wouldn't elaborate Monday about the nature or target of the alleged plot, but says authorities believe there "would have been a localized terror attack, and that's why law enforcement moved quickly."

The FBI says it believes authorities potentially saved the lives of several local residents. The investigation is ongoing.

1. AQWM?

Al Qaeda in Western Minnesota?

Probably not, so this will most likely drop like a stone.

3. No doubt the planned terror attack was very narrow in focus.

He was heading to his parents' house to get even for twenty-four years of being called 'Buford.'

5. I like the Chicago Tribune's article better.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-minnesota-terror-plot-20130506,0,1190089.story

Same content, for the most part, but they didn't put quotes around 'terror attack'. Small thing, but important. The quotes are chickenshit journalism, imo. Too afraid of possibly offending someone that thinks only brown people are terrorists.

8. Well whaddayaknow? A felon in possession of a firearm. Who could have imagined.

/sarcasm off.

2011 felony burglary conviction. Background check, anyone? Might not have stopped the bomb making, but would have stopped him from having a Romanian AK-M assault rifle?

I anxiously await more details.

I'm guessing Montevideo was originally settled by Scandanvians or Germans.

21. More info from Star-Trib, interesting about his racial superiority crap

http://www.startribune.com/local/206277591.html
(clip)
My son knew him for a short period of time, hung out with him,” said Bryan Best. “He talked about white supremacist stuff. I didn’t want hanging around with him, and fortunately he listened to me.”

Several postings on Rogers’ Facebook page from June 15, 2011, suggest irritation with authorities.

“The NWO has taken all your freedoms the right to bear arms freedom of speach freedom of the press ...” read one profanity-punctuated message.

“ever one better get your guns ready cuz there comeing FEMA” and “The war is here tsa agents are doing random cheeks and shooting people for no reson,” read others....(more@ link)

Does that have something to with body searches?

Why is it that extreme right wingers have no grasp of spelling and grammar? (And I'll be this guy also thinks English should be our official language.)

29. This story

just broke today so it will be on the news. I didn't see the 6 pm news but I would be surprised if they didn't have it at point in the newscast. This is one of those stories that wouldn't be much more than a local, sw Minnesota story if it were not for the internet and the recent Boston bombing. KSTP had it on their website this morning. I suppose it took them a while to get reporters out there. I'm sure there are TV reporters doing their standups in Montevideo so the locals are gawking at them.

They were showing the trailer park and that's about it.

I don't think that was on at 6:30. As an aside, how do people live in mobile homes in Minnesota? What do they do in the winter?

Speaking of winter - it just left yesterday up here in northern MN. It snowed Saturday. Today was the first warm day (60-70+) of our belated spring. Yahoo!
