FBI monitoring al-Qaida associates in north Jersey

(10/15/07) NEWARK (AP) - Members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force are monitoring a number of north Jersey residents with ties to al-Qaida. The agents have disrupted their activities and deported several. Task force director Kevin Cruise tells The Record of Bergen County there are facilitators in the state. Cruise would not describe any case in detail. However, efforts to disrupt Osama bin Laden's network range from deportation to telling the suspects that they're being watched. Cruise tells the newspaper his agents have no information about an imminent attack here. The task force is conducting more than 400 counterterror investigations.
