Muslim Tried To Bomb Fed To Wreck Economy

From the Associated Press:

Man held in plot to attack Federal Reserve in NYC

By Colleen Long,Tom Hays | Wed October 17, 2012

NEW YORK, N.Y. – A Bangladeshi man who came to the United States to wage jihad was arrested in an elaborate FBI sting on Wednesday after attempting to blow up a fake car bomb outside the Federal Reserve building in Manhattan, authorities said.

Before trying to carry out the alleged terrorism plot, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis went to a warehouse to help assemble a 1,000-pound bomb using inert material, according to a criminal complaint. He also asked an undercover agent to videotape him saying, "We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom," the complaint said.

Agents grabbed the 21-year-old Nafis — armed with a cellphone he believed was rigged as a detonator — after he made several attempts to blow up the bomb inside a vehicle parked next to the Federal Reserve, the complaint said.

Authorities emphasized that the plot never posed an actual risk. However, they claimed the case demonstrated the value of using sting operations to neutralize young extremists eager to harm Americans.

"Young extremists?" So it’s their age that’s making them do this.

"Attempting to destroy a landmark building and kill or maim untold numbers of innocent bystanders is about as serious as the imagination can conjure," said Mary Galligan, acting head of the FBI’s New York office. "The defendant faces appropriately severe consequences."

Not once the ACLU and CAIR tag team get involved. Then we will learn that Mr. Nafis was "entrapped."

Nafis appeared in federal court in Brooklyn to face charges of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al-Qaida

The defendant had sought assurances from an undercover agent posing as an al-Qaida contact that the terrorist group would support the operation.

"The thing that I want to do, ask you about, is that, the thing I’m doing, it’s under al-Qaida?" he was recorded saying during a meeting in bugged hotel room in Queens, according to the complaint…

How is that possible? Obama has defeated Al Qaeda. According to Obama, they ‘are on the run.’

In further conversations, authorities said Nafis proposed several spots for his attack, including the New York Stock Exchange — and that in a written letter taking responsibility for the Federal Reserve job he was about to carry out, he said he wanted to "destroy America." …

But that is the sum total of his motivation, according to the AP.

Fortunately, the New York Post is not so politically correct. And they provide more details about his motivations:

Terrorist arrested after trying to ‘destroy America’ with Fed Reserve Bank attack

… Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, allegedly wanted to kill scores of people, wreak havoc on the US economy and stop the presidential election when he parked on Liberty Street around 8 a.m. and repeatedly dialed into the cellphone detonator from a nearby hotel room…

“I don’t want something that’s like small. I just want something big,” Nafis, 21, told an undercover agent during a recorded August meeting in Central Park.

“Something very big. Very very very very big, that will shake the whole country . . . that will make us one step closer to run the whole world. I want to do something that brothers coming after us can be inspired by us.”

The al Qaeda-obsessed terrorist — who was living with relatives in Queens — also recorded a video addressed to Americans right before he tried to detonate the bomb.

“We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom,” he said in the video, in which he covered his face, wore sunglasses and disguised his voice

Nafis first arrived in the US in January on a student visa, though his sole purpose was to carry out a terror attack, the complaint says

Nafis first said that considered attacking a US official — which sources said was President Obama — and later named the New York Stock Exchange and a Baltimore military base among possible targets before settling on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, according to court documents.

The undercover agent introduced Nafis to a colleague who he claimed was an al Qaeda operative. He told that agent he wanted his attack to cause political turmoil. “You know what, this election might even stop,” he told the agent, the complaint said

During the months he planned the attack, he scouted locations in downtown Manhattan, planning for a possible strike on the stock exchange. He told an agent, “We are going to need a lot of TNT or dynamite.”

He said he needed a “big car with lots of fruits and vegetables in there which can blow up the whole New York Stock Exchange building,” adding that he needed “to make sure that this building is gone.”

He also penned an article he hoped to have published in the al Qaeda magazine Inspire, in which he announced his decision to blow up the Federal Reserve.

He quoted “our beloved Sheikh Osama bin Laden,” to justify the fact that he expected to kill women and children, authorities said.

Will the media ever ask if this was meant to be revenge for the death of Bin Laden?

“All I had in mind are how to destroy America . . . I came up to this conclusion that targeting America’s economy is most efficient way to draw the path of obliteration of America,” he said.

“I decided to attack the Federal Reserve bank of New York which is by far the largest (by assets), most active (by volume) and most influential of the 12 regional Federal Reserve banks.” …

All of which almost makes him sound like an ‘Occupy Wall Street’ type. Or a (ahem) community organizer.

    Terrorism? Nah. He’s probably just a disgruntled Republican operative who hates healthcare. Maybe he is a racist trying to make Obama look bad. Maybe he was a disgruntled employee getting even with the people who fired him and wouldn’t sign off on unemployment. We wouldn’t want to jump to any undue conclusions… would we?

    Or maybe he saw that evil video mocking Mohammed (and as we know, if you’re offended by Americans it’s ok to express your disapproval of free speech by blowing s**t up.) and is by Obama standards perfectly justified in his anger. And we’re really sorry…

    I wonder how long Obama will wait to classify this loon as a terrorist. Probably need to wait at least two weeks, and then send in the FBI CSI squad for a few minutes, do a thorough investigation and create a blue ribbon panel to ponder the information until after the election.

    One day after Obama in the debate refuses to accurately describe Benghazi as terrorism … shazzam … local authorities just happen to pull some schmo off the streets with a fake bomb and a fake detonator.

    TERRORISM! shouts the headlines.


    Listen up you son of a banker. You need something close to 5,000 pounds of C4, an engineering degree and mad skills in demolition to “blow up” the New York Fed building.

    Of course the MSM call is “blow up” because “cause damage” doesn’t have the motional punch they need to guild the President’s lily.

  3. A Muslim tea bagger. Does Brian Ross know about this??

    He could have saved himself a lot of trouble and just voted for Obama.

  5. Anonymoose says:

    This is where law enforcement worked exactly like it should, catching his intentions and purpose without any doubt. But it’s already Page Three news and will soon be forgotten. Anybody want to call Michael Moore about his “there is no terrorist threat” statements?

    If I wouldn’t know any better, something tells me that we hear quite a few news about attacks this and that; with a sprinkle of ‘may wanting to hurt obama’ sprinkled on top, so it may changes a few knuckleheads opinion and, feeling sorry for dear leader, vote for him anyway.

    Strange, that the LSM barely reported about the two CIA agents assassinated by insiders in Afghanistan about 3 or 4 days ago. Can’t have any news, that AQ is still around, influencing their lackeys to kill our troops.

    This is off the subject, but did you know that obamao ordered out troops upon arrival in Afghanistan that they are NOT fighting for the USA but only for the afghanis!? The media wouldn’t report that -but one of the commanders has written a letter and, Trevor Loudon has it on his blog. The suicide rate in Afghanistan committed by our troops is off the charts and, also not reported. Forget about hearing all about the continued assassinations of our troops by the insiders – that too is off the charts!
