(( Sources tell CBS News the discovery of the cell and a recent spike in their overseas and internal commucations is largely responsible for President Bush deciding to go to alert Condition Orange earlier this week. It is not known whether the cell had identified a specific target in the United States, or how close they were to acting.
All of the Buffalo suspects are U.S. citizens of Yemini descent. All live within a block of each other in (this) Buffalo surburb known as Lackawanna....and all attended the same mosque. The cell's ringleader, also a U.S. citizen of Yemini background, is believed to be in Yemen and outside of U.S. reach for the moment. The five Buffalo suspects will apparently be charged with providing material support and resources to terrorists....this apparently follows a debate within the White House itself over whether to treat the men as criminal defendants...or as nonmilitary combatants with no charges and no access to an attorney.
Sources say the men attended Al Qaeda camps prior to 9-11 and then returned to the United States. There is no indication they had any support role in that attack, or even had fore knowledge it would take place.

While few details are known at this point, the real significance of these arrests is that the suspects are not foreign nationals like the 9-11 hijackers....but U.S. citizens. One was naturalized, but the others, we are told, were born and raised here. That has to be a great concern for the FBI as they search out other terrorists cells. Jim Stewart, CBS News Washington.))
