New York: Oprah Winfrey's studios had been on the target list of terrorists.
According to the New York Post, a small group of terrorists had plans to attack the media mogul's Chicago studios back in 2009, where she had filmed the 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' from 1990 to 2011, however, they were seized before their U-Haul van packed with explosives arrived in the Windy City.
It was said that the radicals didn't like the 60-year-old talk show host's "popularity and power," and the Judicial Watch recognized 2 of the alleged bombers as friends from El Paso.
While one illegal immigrant is being held in an El Paso jail, the other has been behind bars in Cook County jail, and is it believed that there were at least three other co-conspirators.
Judicial Watch said that the terrorist's plots were kept discreet, and the group was even planning to strike the iconic Sears Tower, because of its "obvious landmark status."
