OTTAWA — The men charged with being part of a homegrown terrorist cell were allegedly plotting to bomb Parliament Hill and used Ottawa Public Library computers to communicate over the Internet.
Michel Juneau-Katsuya, a former CSIS agent and expert on terrorists, said his sources told him one of the locations the men allegedly wanted to target was Parliament Hill. He said they want to hit "powerful places" that would strike terror in the hearts of Canadians.
Alleged ringleader Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh was about to leave the country, which is part of the reason police made the arrests Wednesday after a year-long investigation.
Police referred to co-conspirators in Canada and abroad. The fourth person arrested was not one of the three whose names have been released -- James Lara, Rizgar Alizadeh and Zakaria Mamosta. QMI Agency has learned they are not in the country.
Nothing to see here. Move along, folks. And the Russians don't have ANY desire to take our Far Northern resources, either (don't listen to their own words about claiming the North). The intercontinental bomber approaches? Oh, that's nothing. They do it all the time. (Funny, but why bombers? Why not unarmed civilian/scientific planes instead?)
As the Left, a la discredited Chamberlainian "Peace In Our Time" schtick, wants us to assume that Russia, like Nazi Germany, is "peaceful", they also want us to assume that there was no terror plot, no terrorists, and that the arrestees are just being arrested 'cause they're Muslims, Arabs, etc. Beware of the Leftist spin. It sounds so mainstream and authorative, but if you think for yourself, you realize they're lying.
