172 Militants Planning Attack on Oil Fields Arrested in Saudi Arabia

This sounds like a large scale version of 9/11! Flying aircraft with suicidal pilots into economic and political targets. I wonder how many loose threads are being tied into this group? I bet there will be many followup raids in many countries in the next couple of months.

FOXNews.com - 172 Militants Planning Attack on Oil Fields Arrested in Saudi Arabia - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News: "Saudi police arrested 172 Islamic militants who were on the verge of carrying out a series of terror attacks on oil facilities, military zones and public figures, the Interior Ministry said Friday. A spokesman said all that remained in the plot 'was to set the zero hour.'

An Interior ministry statement said police seized weapons and more than 20 million riyals ($5.33 million) in cash, from seven armed cells.

'Some had been training on the use of weapons, and some were sent to other countries to study aviation in preparation to use them to carry out terrorist operations inside the kingdom,' the statement said." [Emphasis added]
