Ending a four-month surveillance operation, the Jordanian intelligence service arrested 11 suspected militants with links to al-Qaeda.

Government officials in Amman said that the conspirators had aimed to eclipse the bombing of three hotels in the city in 2005, an attack that claimed more than 60 lives.

Using arms smuggled in from neighbouring Syria, the militants aimed to bring death and destruction across the capital, according to Jordan's General Intelligence Department.

Demonstrating the ambitious scope of the plot, the militants are alleged to have planned to launch suicide bombings in two shopping malls in Amman in a diversionary attack.

With the attention of the security forces distracted, the suspects then planned to launch their main assault in Abdoun, the city's most prosperous district...


Syrian Rebel Weapons Used in Plot to Attack US Embassy in Jordan

The official story is that the Brave Syrian People (TM) don't have enough weapons. The real story seems to be that they have too many weapons and that those weapons are drifting down into other countries.

The question is did any of those rockets come from the weapons being supplied by Qatar and Saudi Arabia to the Brave Syrian People?

Security forces say the al-Qaeda cell wanted to inflict ‘the heaviest human losses possible' with coordinated suicide strikes on shopping centres and Western diplomats in the country's capital capital Amman.

Authorities tonight arrested 11 suspects who planned on carrying out bombings using smuggled weapons and explosives brought from Syria, it is claimed.

Had the plot come to fruition, the death toll could have reached thousands and destabalising the country's security and had been going on since June.

Since June, the suspects have been surveying targets across the country, bringing in rockets from Syria to use in the alleged plot, the statement said.

One planned attack involved firing rockets at a district in the Jordanian capital that houses the U.S., British and other diplomatic missions as well as housing for expats and Western diplomats, it was claimed.

The statement said al-Qaida ‘explosive experts' based in Iraq and elsewhere have assisted the suspects with manufacturing home-made explosives.

There are apparently enough rockets in Syria that they're downright surplus and that they can be moved out to try and kill Americans in Jordan.

Meanwhile Obama's successful end of the war in Iraq, which he boasted about during the debate, has turned it into such a haven for Al Qaeda that Al Qaeda in Iraq is moving back into Jordan.

And again note the ongoing pattern of attacks on American diplomatic facilities. This is part of an organized program and the Obama Administration's Mohammed video coverup attempted to muddy the waters about a terrorist campaign against America.
