I’m posting this news, just so you are aware of it.

The men apparently called themselves the “crusaders” and lived in what is known as the Kansas Meatpacking Triangle where the big slaughterhouses, like Tyson Foods, are bringing in immigrant and refugee labor to do the “dirty work” for low wages.

Here is an AP story.  And of course NPR is busy on it too.  There is a suggestion at the NPR story that “the men were lured into the bomb plot by FBI agents.”

KCUR reporter/editor Frank Morris is hot on the case as a reporter for NPR.

I’ll try to post more links (at this post) as I see them here during the trial.
