FBI: Coast Guard, military facility shootings linked

Ballistic tests have linked a shooting at a Coast Guard recruiting office in Virginia to four other shootings at military facilities last month, the FBI said Wednesday.

FBI spokesman Andrew Ames provided no other immediate details.

The latest incident was reported Tuesday morning after a bullet struck the recruiting office, housed in a Woodbridge strip mall.

The description was "relatively similar" to October cases in which shots were fired at the Pentagon, the National Museum of the Marine Corps and a vacant Marine recruiting station, said 1st Sgt. Kim Chinn, spokeswoman for Prince William County police.

Holder: Decision on venue for 9/11 terror trial weeks away

The Obama administration's decision on where to try the self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks will be made "within weeks, not months," Attorney General Eric Holder told a House panel on Tuesday.

And although Holder conceded "the train may have left the station" on a decision to hold the trials in New York City, he continued his dogged defense of the need to try terrorist defendants in civilian criminal courts.
