    Bangladeshi man arrested after allegedly . . .

    trying to blow up Fed building in NYC.

    Federal authorities arrested a Bangladeshi national Wednesday morning for allegedly plotting to blow up a Federal Reserve Bank in New York City's lower Manhattan, mere blocks away from the site of the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. The bank is one of 12 branches around the country.
    The 21-year-old suspect, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, attempted to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb in front of the Fed building on Liberty Street, but the device was a fake supplied to him by undercover FBI agents who had been tracking his activity, the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force said Wednesday afternoon.


    The supposed explosives posed no threat to the public, the FBI said.


    A criminal complaint accuses Nafis of having overseas connections to Al Qaeda and travelling to the U.S. in January to recruit individuals to form a terrorist cell and conduct an attack on American soil. He came under the guise of going to school in Missouri on a student visa. One of Nafis' potential recruits was an FBI source, who alerted authorities, the FBI said.

    This is undoubtedly an FBI sting. They probably learned the techniques from the CIA, since that's most likely how the CIA recruits terrorists in other countries. Good thing we can learn from our own covert operations.

    Comments?

    Glad to see this buttwipe was caught and is now in custody. Sure wish the 9/11 jerks had been caught at that time before they wreaked their evil upon America.

    It is good that he was caught

    An aside

    I wonder how much of the operation was pushed by the FBI and how much was by the suspect.

    How many of the arrests made would never have been made if the FBI did not supply the vehicle, the explosives, and i wonder the plan? Was the FBI the driving force behind the operation?

    My guess is they were. I think they surf the net looking for people they think could be facilitated right into an attack . . . and then facilitate them. Arrest them. And throw them in jail. Is it entrapment? Well, that's anyone's guess, I suppose. Could a person like that just as easily be recruited by an AQ cell and the bomb be real? Probably. I'm glad the FBI got to him first.

    When was the last "terrorist attack" in this country that wasn't masterminded, funded and equipped by the FBI? What they are doing probably isn't technically entrapment, but it definitely is little more than a cynical attempt to manufacture good PR. I have little sympathy for murderous idiots that get roped into these schemes, but its pathetic how easily our media is willing to lap up these little manufactured scenarios.

    The guy came here to pull off an attack. I'm glad he was stopped. As for all this "the FBI made him do it" crap, I call B.S. It's the FBI's job to identify potential terrorists, assure that they are indeed ready and willing to blow people up, and get enough evidence for a conviction without actually letting them blow people up.

    Kudo's to the FBI.

    You will never catch threats comparable to the level of the 9/11 attackers with the kind of crap. Anyone who isn't a colossal idiot is aware that the FBI has run half a dozen little stings like this, and isn't about to blindly trust potential informants. The moron kid is this particular case is a perfect example: he was alone without connections or resources and incapable of doing anything without someone else to provide planning and weapons. I am not going to shed any tears on his behalf, but don't pretend he was some kind of grave danger to America stopped by the heroic actions of the FBI.

    Well, I don't think I'd be quite that cavalier about it, Rathi. I agree with most of what you say. BUT. Just as there are FBI stings working? So, undoubtedly are there terrorist cell enablers looking for guys like that. Hell, it's how the CIA gets things done abroad, after all.

    Mohamed translates to be the "paraclete"/"Jesus". (I know no Arabic or Islamic though, I heard that from a muslim student.) So, logically, if you are Mohamed, wouldn't you want to catch up with the well spread name-recognition of Jesus?
