Falls Church Jihad

It is amazing to imagine that the suburban Washington town where I used to live this summer was a staging ground for a terrorist network. On the other hand, the charges against the conspirators, as detailed in the Washington Post, appear to be rather odd.
Royer was at the center of the government's case against a group of men who played paintball in the Virginia countryside to prepare for jihad training.... The men -- all but one from the Washington suburbs and nine of them U.S. citizens -- were accused of possessing a variety of weapons and practicing military tactics during their paintball games.

They owned guns and played paintball? Boy, it's a rather short list of conservatives who I know who wouldn't fall into these categories by the age of twenty-five.
