Amtrak Terror Plot Foiled!
Canadian authorities say they’ve stopped a major terror plot that could have hit pretty close to home.
Officials with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police say two men, 35-year-old Raed Jaser and 30-year-old Chiheb Esseghaier, were arrested for allegedly conspiring to derail an Amtrak trail that runs from Toronto to New York City.
Yes, the train would have passed through Niagara Falls and Buffalo as well. According to reports, the two men were receiving support from al-Qaeda elements in Iran.
