“I am not a lunatic who is hell bent on destruction of Western civilization.”
Of course you weren’t, Mr. Khalid. Your little group’s alleged targets were much more modest than all of Western civilization:
The group was allegedly preparing for a large-scale terrorist attack in southern Ontario, which included detonating truck bombs at least two locations in Southern Ontario and opening fire in a crowded area. Police alleged they also made plans to storm various buildings such as the Canadian Broadcasting Centre and the Canadian Parliament building, and take hostages. According to one of the suspect’s lawyers, they have been accused of planning to “behead the Prime Minister”, Stephen Harper, and other leaders.
Law enforcement authorities have identified other specific targets, including the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Parliamentary Buildings’ Peace Tower.
Not a lunatic? Suit yourself.
