Firedog Thwarted Alleged Terrorist Plot29 May, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Saying it showed what “the power of one person” could do, one of two Delaware Circuit City Stores clerks who tipped authorities about an alleged terrorist attack on Fort Dix went public May 29 for the first time since the arrest of six suspects earlier this month.
Brian Morgenstern, a 23-year-old firedog technician specializing in home entertainment, told “The Sean Hannity Show” he became suspicious while transferring video content from 8mm videotape to DVD more than 18 months ago.
“It looked suspicious,” said Morgenstern, who declined to disclose the exact video images, citing the ongoing federal investigation.
The six illegal aliens from Eastern Europe living in Delaware and Pennsylvania have reportedly been charged with conspiring to kill American military personnel.
Morgenstern said it took him at least a day to decide whether to alert local authorities, who then contacted the FBI. He said he had forgotten about the matter until notified by authorities this month.
Morgenstern has reportedly been promoted to store manager at an undisclosed Circuit City location.
