Newly breaking reports indicate that one of the suspects in the Fort Dix Terrorism case had applied for police positions in two different cities, Oakland and Philadelphia. This could indicate attempts by the jihadis to infiltrate police departments.Â From AP:
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (AP) – One of the men accused of plotting to attack soldiers at Fort Dix had recently applied to be a police officer in two big citiesâ€”a move some authorities believe may have been an effort to infiltrate law enforcement agencies. Serdar Tatar, 23, applied for a job in Philadelphia last month, police spokesman Sgt. D.F. Pace said Wednesday.“Based on what we know now, I don’t think his intentions were good,” Pace said.Tatar also applied for a job in the Oakland, Calif., Police Department, according to a law enforcement official speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.
Roland Holmgren, an Oakland police spokesman, said he could not immediately confirm whether Tatar had applied there
This paraphrase or quote from Tatar also appears later in the story:
“I’m gonna do it. Whether you are or not (FBI), I’m gonna do it,” he told the informant, according to the document. “Know why? It doesn’t matter to me, whether I get locked up, arrested, or get taken away, it doesn’t matter. Or I die, doesn’t matter, I’m doing it in the name of Allah.”
