Video: Australian Public Execution Terror Plot Foiled

VIDEO: Australian PM: Public Execution Terror Plot Foiled

Two men were charged Thursday in connection with a terror plot that Australia's prime minister said involved plans to carry out a public execution, reports CNN.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said authorities obtained intelligence about a "demonstration killing" -- a killing, Australian media reported, in which alleged assailants planned to kidnap a member of the public, behead the victim and then drape him or her in an ISIS flag.

The foiled plot comes just days after the country raised its terror alert to high and in the midst of Australia committing to helping the United States and a broad international coalition to beat back the Islamic State, or ISIS.

Earlier Thursday, at least one person had been arrested and charged with terrorism offenses and another 14 were detained as police conducted more than two dozen searches in Sydney, acting Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said at a news conference. Hours later, police said nine people who were detained have been released.

These idiots will come to the US in time if they are not here already. It is a good wake up call to carry concealed. May be a good time for the spouse to start carrying again as well.
