So, it's been accepted that terrorists (and their kissing cousins, violent extremists!) are stepping up attempts to attack targets during the holiday season. I'm not sure why - anger at the commercialization of Christmas? Can't get Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" out of their heads? Unhappy childhoods?
Anyway, the latest threat is to an establishment that this nation holds very dear: the buffet. According to WMAL, this article on The Blaze, and CBS News, terrorists are planning to try to poison those salad bar and buffet-going folks.
It may seem funny, but read this account of a similar plot that was carried out by a commune in Oregon in 1984.
Members of the Rajneeshee commune who were trying to rig a local election managed to sicken over 700 people by infecting local restaurant's salad bars with salmonella, which they manufactured in labs on their property. There were no fatalities, amazingly enough, but the members of the commune who carried out the attacks also planned to contaminate the city's water supply.
