A Christian fundamentalist who was trained as an Army Ranger pleaded not guilty in Miami to bomb and weapons charges in an alleged plot to blow up abortion clinics, gay bars and churches he deemed disloyal. Prosecutors say 35-year-old Stephen John Jordi described himself as a terrorist and planned a bombing spree across the eastern United States.

A man arrested on suspicion of plotting to bomb abortion clinics came "perilously close to carrying out his plans" after casing clinics, studying bomb making and buying material that could be used in an attack, according to the FBI and court documents. Stephen John Jordi, 35, was arrested Tuesday after agents arranged a meeting aboard a boat, FBI spokeswoman Beverly Esselbach said, adding that he jumped overboard and was pulled from the ocean by the Coast Guard half an hour later.
