JIHADISTS PLANNED TO PLUNGE TRAIN INTO NIAGARA

Canadian authorities announced they have broken up a terror plot to derail a passenger train as it crossed over "a bridge" in the Toronto area. Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, from the greater Montreal and Toronto area were conspiring to carry out an "Al Qaeda inspired" attack. Police said the men are not Canadian citizens, but they would not comment on where they are originally from.'

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation adds that the suspects were under investigation for over a year before brought into custody, and assistance was provided by entities on both sides of the border including the United States’ FBI and Department of Homeland Security Department.

So much for the cover up by the lamestream media. Now for the real news!

The "bridge" is the connection over the Niagara Falls. The objective was to drop the train into the Niagara River as it crossed from Canada to USA over the bridge.

Update

Al Qaeda has long studied the possibility of attacks on railroad systems -- seeing them as cheap, relatively easy to carry out and with potentially devastating results. In a document seized during the raid in Pakistan that left Osama bin Laden dead was evidence of an Al Qaeda discussion to target rail lines in the United States.

Traditionally, Al Qaeda is seen as Sunni-dominated and not Shiite. As a result, Al Qaeda and Iran have not been viewed as allies. What is known is that bin Laden's son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, fled Afghanistan for Iran after the fall of the Taliban in 2001. According to US documents and officials, in addition to Abu Ghaith, other members of bin Laden's inner circle ended up in Iran, including the formidable military commander of al Qaeda, Saif al-Adel, and Saad bin Laden, one of the Al Qaeda's leader older sons who has played some kind of leadership role in the group. Saad bin Laden also helped one of his father's wives and several of his father's children to move from Pakistan to Iran.

Update

One of the suspects is Tunisian and one is from the United Arab Emirates. The suspects have been in the country legally for a "considerable period of time" but are not Canadian citizens (...) Esseghaier studied there in 2008-2009. More recently, he has been doing doctoral research at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique, a spokeswoman at the training university confirmed.

A man with the same name is scheduled to deliver a presentation on PSA cancer screening, with colleagues, at a conference in California this summer. A LinkedIn page says a man with Esseghaier's name and academic background helped author a number of biology research papers, including on HIV and cancer detection. The page carries a photo of a black flag inscribed with the Islamic declaration of faith. >>>
