Two of four men accused of plotting attacks on Southern California military sites and Jewish targets have agreed to plead guilty to terrorism conspiracy charges, prosecutors said. Kevin James and Levar Haley Washington were set to enter the pleas Friday in federal court in Santa Ana, the US attorney's office said in a statement. Both were indicted in 2005 on federal charges including conspiring to wage war against the US government through terrorism. Authorities claimed that the plot was hatched in prison and that James, Washington and two others were a cell of radical Muslims planning attacks on military facilities, synagogues and other sites in the Los Angeles area. Prosecutors assert that James even prepared a press release that the men planned to send out after an attack.
