Police Confirm Pam Geller was Initial Target of Terror Plot

A Boston man shot to death by investigators who were surveilling him had talked about beheading blogger Pamela Gelle. This was before the man decided to target police officers, Boston police said Thursday. "There was some mention of that name," said Police Commissioner William Evans. Geller wasn't surprised that she may have been a target. She's a combative personality known for provoking Muslims. She campaigned against a mosque near the World Trade Center site in New York, sponsored inflammatory advertisements and organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas. Writing in an email to the AP Thursday, Geller said, "They want to make an example out of me to frighten the rest of the US into silence and submission."
