NEW YORK – Federal authorities said a plot by a suspected Muslim terrorist cell to blow up John F. Kennedy International Airport, its fuel tanks and a jet fuel artery could have caused “unthinkable” devastation.
But while pipeline and security experts agreed that such an attack would have crippled America’s economy, particularly the airline industry, they said it probably would not have led to significant loss of life as intended.
Authorities announced Saturday they had broken up the suspected terrorist cell, arresting three men, one of them a former member of Guyana’s parliament. A fourth man was being sought in Trinidad as part of the plot that authorities said they had been tracking for more than a year and was foiled in the planning stages.
Two other men, Abdul Kadir of Guyana and Kareem Ibrahim of Trinidad, were in custody in Trinidad. A fourth man, Abdel Nur of Guyana, was still being sought in Trinidad.
Still, never fear.The Freepi are on the case:
Several years ago I spotted two people taking pictures of a power plant in Redondo Beach, CA. There was not utility vehicle in the area. One was taking pictures, one was taking notes. One appeared to be Phillapino the other from a Middle Eastern country.
We reported it to the police. By the time we got turned around to meet the police there as they requested and got back to the area, the two were gone. The officer that took our report made a very direct jester to extend his hand, shake our hand and thank us.
I am convinced those two men we saw we surveying the power plant for no-good intent. I think that is going on all over the country.
Every word you said is right on the mark. They’re everywhere, looking, listening, taking notes. Remember the thousands of cell phone purchases here? Written off as being just small businessmen and let go. They were buying thousands of $20 cell phones, taking out the chargers, and supposedly selling the stripped phones for $40. All the cops and feds that looked at them said “makes sense to me” and let them all go. We are going to get hit again and again and again.
People always ask how I can read over there without suffering a rage-fueled heart attack. Their invectivve doesn’t piss me off, it just makes me sad. The neediness of these people. What you must have going on inside, that you’d have to turn a trip to the grocery store or whatever into an act of noble and patriotic defense without which the Republic would surely perish.
