Terror Investigation: Suspects plotted to behead blogger

BOSTON (WPRI) — The two suspects in Mass. that planned to behead police officers originally had a different plan in mind.

Usaamah Rahim and David Wright reportedly conspired to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller, according to CNN.

Geller was the focus last month at her organization’s contest for the Prophet Muhammad drawing in Garland, TX where a security officer killed two terrorists getting ready to open fire to a crowd.

The outspoken Islam critic was questioned about the latest attempt for terrorists to attack her.

 They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves? It won’t end with me, no matter what happens to me or the cops. This is just the beginning. The one thing that’s being ignored that came out of Garland, Texas, is that ISIS is here. Islamic terrorism is here,” said Geller.

Court documents suggest Rahim had an immediate change in plans Tuesday morning, to “go after the boys in blue,” which prompted officials to take action.

Officials still remain monitoring a Warwick house in question that is somehow related to the two suspects.
