    "Investigators said the men planned to use automatic rifles to enter Fort Dix and kill as many soldiers as they could at the New Jersey Army base. Fort Dix was just one of several military and security locations allegedly scouted by this group, authorities said.

    The suspects, identified as Dritan Duka, Eljvir Duka, Shain Duka, Mohamad Shnewer, Derdar Tatar and Agron Abdullahu, have been charged with conspiring to kill U.S. government employees. Separately, the Duka brothers have been charged with being illegal aliens in possession of firearms.

    The Dukas, believed to be Islamic radicals, are in the United States illegally, while Shnewer is a U.S. citizen born in Jordan, according to the Justice Department.

    "The philosophy that supports and encourages jihad around the world came to live in New Jersey," U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie said during a Tuesday afternoon news conference. "Fortunately law enforcement in New Jersey was here to stop them. The threat that was being brought against Fort Dix has been taken care of."

    Investigators said most of the suspects have spent several years in the United States.

    White House spokesman Tony Snow said Tuesday there is "no direct evidence" that the men have ties to international terrorism."
