OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian prosecutors unveiled on Friday evidence against four men detained on suspicion of plotting to blow up the U.S. and Israeli embassies and of participating in a shooting at the Oslo synagogue last weekend.

Prosecutor Unni Fries told a court the Norwegian secret services had bugged the car of the main suspect and recorded conversations between the men planning the attacks.

"They spoke in detail about how to attack the synagogue and the U.S. and Israeli embassies," Fries said, asking the court to detain all four suspects for four weeks without visitors or other contact with the outside world.

Early on Sunday morning at least 10 shots fired from an automatic weapon hit Oslo’s only synagogue

Police have identified the detainees only as men between the ages of 20 and 30. Defense lawyers, who said their clients were innocent, said one suspect was of Turkish origin, two had Pakistani backgrounds and one was a native Norwegian.

Fries said the main suspect had "expressed extreme Islamist views " and was briefly detained during this summer’s World Cup by German police, who found drawings of rockets in his car.

During a trip to Britain in June he was reported to have told his girlfriend over the telephone that he "felt that he had to act", Fries said. She did not say whether prosecutors were linking the suspects with any extremist organization

The U.S. embassy said in a statement that it was watching developments closely and would cooperate fully with Norwegian authorities.

"We are deeply concerned about the emerging information on these planned terrorist attacks," ambassador Ben Whitney said. "This situation reflects the importance of having the necessary legal tools to prevent terrorism." …

It is somewhat amazing that we have been told what nationality these bravos are. The article even hints at their religious persuasion.

Usually we only get such minor details in the context of how these suspects are just innocent babes who are being "profiled" by the evil system. Maybe the tide is turning.

But you can bet the ACLU is booking flights to Norway as we speak.

After all, they have the right of Americans to be blown up by Muslim terrorists to protect.
