FBI Arrests 2 In NYC Terrorism Investigation

By Tom Hays, Associated Press Writer

January 8, 2010

NEW YORK – Two men were arrested Friday in the investigation of a suspected bomb plot targeting New York City that previously led to charges against a Denver airport driver.

The arrests in New York of Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay were part of "an ongoing investigation" by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to FBI agent Richard Kolko, who declined to comment further…

Would it be wrong to question the timing of these arrests, coming as they do hard upon the heels of Mr. Obama’s review of our counter-terrorism efforts?

Medunjanin’s attorney, Robert C. Gottlieb, said the FBI seized his client’s passport Thursday. The search warrant indicated the passport was sought as part of an investigation into a conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

The airport driver, Najibullah Zazi, previously pleaded not guilty to that charge. He is accused of getting al-Qaida training to build homemade bombs to attack New York City.

Federal investigators questioned Medunjanin and Ahmedzay — who lived in the same Queens neighborhood as Zazi — months ago in the terrorism probe…

Gottlieb has said FBI agents seized computers and cell phones from Medunjanin’s apartment last fall but later returned them.

Gottlieb said the FBI confirmed the arrests for him Friday morning, many hours after they occurred. Gottlieb said he didn’t know what charges the men faced.

Gottlieb, who insists Medunjanin has done nothing wrong, said officials at a Queens hospital had told him that authorities had taken Medunjanin into custody after he was treated for minor injuries from a traffic accident.

Fox News is reporting that Mr. Medunjanin had an accident with another car while he was trying to escape FBI.

"They intentionally hid him from his lawyer and his family," Gottlieb said

If only.

The FBI might actually save some innocent lives, if it weren’t for lawyers.

Here’s a thought.

How about we make lawyers culpable for lives lost and other damages arising from their obstructing justice in the questioning of terrorists?

    Within 24 hours, the Terror Warrior in Chief turned it all around.

    He’s amazing, isn’t he?

  3. Rusty Shackleford

    What’s amazing is that the lawyer apparently defending the wanted terrorist is Jewish.

  4. Right of the People

    First, we kill all the lawyers. As relevant now as it was in Billy Shakespeare’s time.

    • Liberals Demise

      Count me in…….I loathe lawyers and agree that the herd should be culled!

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Hey, just because 99.99999% give the rest of them a bad name is no reason to go all “torches and pitchforks” now. (sarc)
