US Is Investigating More JFK Plot Suspects

Official Says JFK Terror Probe Widening

Saturday, June 09, 2007

NEW YORK —  The investigation into the thwarted plot to bomb Kennedy International Airport is widening beyond the four men in custody, with more suspects sought outside the U.S. for their suspected roles, a law enforcement official said Friday.

The defendants identified last weekend were “just a piece of it,” the official told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because of not being authorized to speak publicly. “We are definitely seeking more players. We are targeting others overseas.”

The official declined to provide details about the possible suspects, or in what countries they are being sought…

According to court documents, the men sought the help of Jamaat al Muslimeen, or JAM, a group based in Trinidad that is known to be violent and involved in killings, kidnappings and weapons trafficking over the past two decades. The group staged a coup attempt in 1990, storming the Trinidad Parliament building and taking the prime minister hostage.

Some experts have called the plot far-fetched, saying it would have been virtually impossible to achieve the kind of destruction the suspects envisioned. But the official said that if the men had lined up with people who had the right resources, the plans could have been carried out in a short period of time…

Yes, these experts always assure us that such things are “far-fetched,” until they happen.

Then they claim nobody did enough to prevent them.
