I suppose we're waiting for something important to happen 
(en francais)

Update to yesterday's post. Both men claim to have family in Toronto and one of the accused attended high school there.

While I'm certainly not paranoid, I am deeply concerned.

Living in Windsor, where between the Tunnel and Ambassador bridge 42% of Canada's trade with the US travels, failure to deal with these threats has grave implicatons for both countries.
Atlanta men met with extremists in Toronto: FBI

Two Atlanta-area men met with Islamic extremists in Toronto, where they discussed "strategic locations in the United States suitable for a terrorist strike," according to an FBI affidavit made public Friday.

Syed Haris Ahmed and Ehsanul Islam Sadequee -- U.S. citizens from the Atlanta area -- met with at least three other targets of FBI terrorism investigations during a trip to Toronto last month, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit said the men discussed attacks against oil refineries and military bases. They also planned to travel to Pakistan for military training at a terrorist camp, which authorities said the 21-year-old Ahmed then attempted to do.
The question is, who are the "three other targets" that the accused met with? Both stories have very little comment from the RCMP and there has been no word of any arrests in Canada.
