Ever since Sept. 11, U.S. authorities have asked the public to be vigilant, urging, “If you see something, say something.”In January 2006, a store clerk in New Jersey saw something.
A group of men had brought him a video showing them firing assault weapons and chanting, “God is Great!” in Arabic. They wanted him to transfer the footage onto a DVD.
So he said something, calling the Mount Laurel Police Department, who in turn contacted the FBI.
And thus began the downfall of one of the most thoroughly infiltrated and documented group of terrorism suspects in recent history — six men from Yugoslavia and the Middle East who were charged Tuesday with plotting to slaughter scores of American soldiers at Fort Dix and perhaps other military installations in the Northeast.
I am so thankful to this “Store Clerk”, John Doe! For those who worry that one person can’t accomplish anything, think again! This person did it and so can you! Keep your eyes and ears open and… If you See something… Say something!
