Terror Plot Foiled at JFK Airport ~ 4 Charged and 3 Arrested

Fox News
Three people were arrested and one other was being sought 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.

A senior law enforcement official told FOX News that of the three arrests, one was in New York and two were in Trinidad. The New York suspect has been identified as Russell Afreitas, a former JFK employee who allegedly planned to attack the airport's fuel supply because he thought he could do more damage than attacking a passenger terminal. Afreitas is a Muslim U.S. citizen from Guyana.

In carrying out the alleged plot, Afreitas unknowingly recruited an FBI informant, and surveillance on Afreitas began.

One of the other suspects arrested in Trinidad was identified as Abdul Kabir, a member of Parliament of Guyana.

The pipeline targeted in the plot carries fuel from a facility in Linden, N.J., to the airport. Other lines service LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.

three men accused of plotting to attack John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York were linked to one of the most wanted al Qaeda leaders, Adnan Shukrijumah, known to have operated out of Guyana and Trinidad.

Now why would a guy who retired from JFK and lived here for so many years, want to blow up and hurt so many people? What made him so angry?
I know! He's a MOOSLEM!

Oh, how surprising.An American moslem. I thought we were supposed to give these shitbirds the benefit of the doubt because they are "Americans". ALL moslems are moslem first. If some iman or mullah says destroy America, most of these ragbag bastards will at least passively support that plan and some of them will try to carry out the plan.

And we keep letting more in, both legally and illegally. We are not always going to be so lucky to catch them in time.

Lynn, it is scary because we really never know who might be planning something.

Tom, exactly! So much for the benefit of the doubt.
