The Inside Story on Ft. Dix

A member of a gang of Islamists accused of planning to attack Fort Dix and kill "as many American soldiers as possible" told an FBI undercover informant he suspected the man was a federal agent but didn't care because he wanted to kill anyway "in the name of Allah," according to court papers.
In a Nov. 28 conversation recorded by the paid informant known only as CW-1, Serdar Tatar, 23, of Philadelphia, said, "You know one thing that's scary, too? ... I don't know you that much. ... You know. I don't know whether you're FBI ... or the, an agent, I don't know.
"I'm gonna do it. Whether you are or not. I'm gonna do it. Know why? ... It doesn't matter to me, whether I get locked up, arrested or get taken away, it doesn't matter. Or I die, doesn't matter. I'm doing it in the name of Allah."
Two weeks earlier, according to an FBI criminal complaint, Tatar had attempted to find out whether the informant was a law-enforcement officer by contacting a sergeant at the Philadelphia Police Department, saying he had been approached by a man who pressured him to acquire maps of Fort Dix. He told the sergeant he did not supply the map and was fearful the incident was terrorist-related.
