Mistrial for six in Sears Tower conspiracy
Remember this? The terrible plot to destroy - I say destroy :sarcasm: the Sears tower by 6 guys who had no ability, no contacts and no money?

Well guess what? the case fell apart

MIAMI (Reuters) - A judge declared a mistrial on Thursday for six men accused of plotting to blow up America's tallest skyscraper, Chicago's Sears Tower, after a jury failed to reach verdicts on them but acquitted one other man.

The decision was a setback for the U.S. government, which had touted the arrests as an important victory in its war on terrorism. U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard scheduled a new trial for January 7 for the six.

PS hope this is in time as I had to go out during posting
