    JFK Terror Plot Foiled - 4 Men Charged

    Three men have been arrested and the 4th is being sought.

    Four men allegedly were plotting to blow up the pipe lines from New Jersey to JFK Int'l Airport in NY.

    I think the man being sought is in Trinidad. Two others were arrested in Trinidad. I think the mastermind is a U.S. citizen.

    News conference to begin in a few minutes, @ 1:15 pm EDT.

    Several Arrests Made in Suspected JFK Airport Plot

    June 2, 2007 In New York City, a terrorist plot centering John F. Kennedy International Airport has been foiled, federal officials confirm. At least three people; including one airport employee; have been arrested in connection to the plot, and a fourth person is being sought.

    Investigators believe the suspects were going to use explosives to target a fuel line to the airport in New York's Queens borough. The plot did not involve airplanes or passenger terminals, but instead centered on critical infrastructure around the international airport.

    Thanks, Liz for these news reports. I'm so happy these goons were caught!

    I've always thought that airport/airline employees need to be looked at and watched very carefully as they have inside access.

    Does anyone else think that the timing of the news release hints of pushing Bush's terrorism alarmist tactics. Sorry, but I am becoming so skeptical about almost everything.

    Four Accused of New York Airport Terror Plot

    NEW YORK (June 2) - Three people were arrested and one other was being sought Saturday in connection to a plan to set off explosives in a fuel line that feeds John F. Kennedy International Airport and runs through residential neighborhoods, officials close to the investigation said. The plot, which never got past the planning stages, did not involve airplanes or passenger terminals, according to the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the arrests had not yet been announced.

    Details were to be given out at a 1 p.m. news conference. The pipeline takes fuel from a facility in Linden, N.J., to the airport. Other lines service LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. The arrests mark the latest in a series of alleged homegrown terrorism plots targeting high-profile American landmarks.

    A year ago, seven men were arrested in what officials called the early stages of a plot to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and destroy FBI offices and other buildings. A month later, authorities broke up a plot to bomb underwater New York City train tunnels to flood lower Manhattan. And six people were arrested a month ago in an alleged plot to unleash a bloody rampage on Fort Dix in New Jersey.

    Thanks Buzz! I was suprised no one had posted about it (didn't even think to look in the PP). Hope it's okay but I'm going to leave this thread here for now, since it is "Up To the Minute News" and since the PP is a private forum.

    I did debate whether it should go here or in Crimes in the News. But since technically the crime hasn't been committed yet, I chose this forum.


    ETA: YW, Nore!

    All the more reason for Border Security, and bringing our military home from Iraq, so they can help protect our homeland.

    I almost wish the FBI, ATF, and anti-terrorism units, would just continue to do their jobs, rather than use these occasions as a photo, and publicity, op. Seems that they wouldn't want to give any other possibly existing terrorist plots any heads-up on FBI, ATF, Homeland Security tactics, or successes. Too often, these releases are timed, to stir up the public, or overshadow, something else that is going on, that they don't want us to focus on.

    I wish I didn't feel this way, not trusting our politicians.

    No apology needed. Yes, Yes I do, my exact thoughts!

    Then they wouldn't be politicians.
