    Terrorists are planning their attacks, and so far they have been unable to carry most of them out

    However, with the Dems surrender plan, pulling US forces out of Iraq, and handing Iraq over to terrorists and Iran - the chances of success increase for the terrorists

    Saudis Arrest 172 Militants in Oil Plot

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Police arrested 172 Islamic militants, some of whom had trained abroad as pilots so they could fly aircraft in attacks on Saudi Arabia's oil fields, the Interior Ministry said Friday. A spokesman said all that remained in the plot "was to set the zero hour."

    The ministry issued a statement saying the detainees were planning to carry out suicide atttacks against "public figures, oil facilities, refineries ... and military zones" _ some of which were outside the kingdom

    "They had reached an advance stage of readiness and what remained only was to set the zero hour for their attacks," Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Mansour al-Turki told the Associated Press in a phone call. "They had the personnel, the money, the arms. Almost all the elements for terror attacks were complete except for setting the zero hour for the attacks."

    The militants were detained in separate waves, he said, with one group confessing and leading security officials to the next group, as well as weapons' caches.

    The ministry did not say the militants would fly aircraft into oil refineries, as the Sept. 11, 2001 hijackers flew planes into buildings in New York and Washington, but its statement said some detainees had been "sent to other countries to study flying in preparation for using them to carry out terrorist attacks inside the kingdom."
