Brian Morgenstern has come forward and despite his modesty, he truly is an American hero. Brian was one of the two “tipsters” who alerted authorities about a pending terror attack on Fort Dix by Islamic radicals in January 2006. The members of the terror cell were arrested on May 7, 2007 after a 15-month investigation.

An electronics-store clerk credited with providing the tip that broke up an alleged plot to kill soldiers at Fort Dix went public Tuesday, saying he spent a day pondering his suspicions before going to authorities.
Brian Morgenstern said he was alarmed when he watched the video that two men brought him to have transferred to a DVD but also worried about invading the customers’ privacy.
At a news conference, J.P. Weis, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia office, called Morgenstern “that unsung hero … who saw a video and said, ‘You know, somebody needs to know about this.’
“And that’s why we’re here today, thanks to the courage and heroism of that individual.”
But that’s not how Morgenstern sees his action: “I don’t feel like a hero,” he said.
“I feel like I did the right thing, but I think the real heroes are the men and women overseas and the people in our law enforcement who handled the situation.”

Thank you Brian. You ARE a hero.
He should receive a Congressional Medal of Freedom… but Congress wouldn’t know a true American hero if it tripped over one.
