Obama Statement on FBI Bust of Terrorist Conspiracy to Blow Up Sears Tower

U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) today released the following statement about the arrest of 7 people in Miami with participating in a terrorist conspiracy to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago:

"The men and women of the FBI have done a great job infiltrating and taking down this home-grown terrorist cell. But this is a stark reminder that landmarks in our nation's great cities, like the Sears Tower in Chicago, remain tempting targets for terrorists and would-be terrorists. We need to make sure our scarce homeland security dollars are distributed according to risk and threat, not pork-barrel politics. Political concerns should be put aside when we are talking about protecting our citizens."
