The best laid plans of men

And loons. The Miami Seven wanted to spring prisoners from a prison and were planning on using their attack on the Sears Tower in Chicago as a 'diversion':

The alleged ringleader of a group of South Florida men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower wanted the blast to divert law enforcement so he could free inmates from a prison to join his terrorist army, federal prosecutors said Friday.

The lead lawyer in the government's terrorism case against the seven men provided fresh details about the group's alleged plot to bomb buildings in Miami and Chicago - and how the plan disintegrated as members fought among themselves.

The picture that emerged during Friday's hearing in Miami federal court was of an ambitious, but inept, military-style organization whose members had illusions of grandeur and a taste for intrigue.
