Federal Reserve 'bomber' plotted to kill Obama: Foreign student, 21, who 'tried to blow up Manhattan bank with 1,000lb car bomb planned to take out President' Daily Mail [UK], by Beth Stebner, Louise Boyle
The 21-year-old student behind an alleged terror plot to blow up the New York Federal Reserve also planned to target a high-ranking U.S. official, believed to be President Obama. Quazi Nafis, from Bangladesh, was arrested early on Wednesday after he allegedly tried to remotely detonate a fake 1,000-pound car bomb outside the building in lower Manhattan, only a few blocks from the World Trade Center. The plot was foiled by a major FBI and NYPD operation which led to Nafis being supplied with fake explosives by an undercover agent. New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said that a high-ranking
Earlier yesterday I saw the potus theory floated then removed by the evening. Which story line do you think the sinking potus will embrace/employ? Fake war in libya where he takes out, by drone, the people who killed our people in libya? Bid Laden II?. Threat of assassination? How about his kid or wife are sick? Bo has a booboo?
FTA "According to the criminal complaint, Nafis said: 'All I had in my 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 as well as the path of establishment of Khilapha.’"
Hss ever ever in the history of America a president watched in real time as his Ambassador and Navy SEALs were murdered and simply went to bed so he could be up early to continue his political campaign?
It is so chilling that it makes one wonder if Stevens was on Obama's 'kill list'.
Maybe we should consider a moritorium on student visas, and track down those "students" whose visas have expired, or who haven't attended classes for the past thirty days, and who are still presumably roaming the country.
There is no point, they are both on the same side and have the same goals. The only difference is that one has the intelligence of a snake and the other of a brick. We can not allow this psycho to deprive us of our victory in November.
Maybe I missed something but all the article talked about was the plan to bomb the New York Federal Reserve building so I hardly see how that "takes out" 0bama. It also points out the ignorance of the would-be bomber. Blowing the Fed sky high would interrupt things a bit but surely, all the records are backed-up offsite. If 0bama had a son, I think he'd look a little like Quazi.
No doubt the Obama White House would report to the nation that this guy is just another wayward movie critic if they thought that they could get away with that in order to further cover for the perpetrators of radical Islamic jihad who are continuously attempting to attack the USA.
The article says that this guy plotted to kill Obama, but apparently his mission was to bomb a big bank in New York. Now everybody knows that Obama hates big New York banks, so the chances of Obama being in the vicinity of that bank giving a campaign speech are remote.
This guy's chances of coming anywhere near Obama would be much better at a college or university where Obama always gives his speeches, blowing smoke at know nothing college students like this naive radical Islamist terrorist.
And the Obama State Dept. gave this guy a student visa to study cyber security in the USA?????
Throwing in the assassination bit seems to be an afterthought. What I want to know is, why does the FBI, CIA and other security/intelligence factions have to set up a Sting Operation to catch these terrorists. It seems they have a hand in all ends of the act from securing the elements to create bombs to helping secure methods of delivery. Loads of 'fishy' smell to all of this. They knew about most of those involved in 9-11, but what was done to hinder that?
#25: I agree. I also question the timing of this thing. It knocked the debate off the front page during the time of analysis and fact check. So far nobody has done the big article laying out how Romney told a bunch of untruths. Obama lied through his teeth, but Romney didn't.
So, now they're just talking about this would be puppet ... I mean terrorist.
#8 & 23 - I don't know how they think, but I do know that we don't think like them and they don't think like us. You cannot use common logic when trying to understand what goes through the brain of a terrorist. You might as well ask why do islamists kill each other? Because it is what they do is about the only answer that fits.
Anyone want to bet that obama finds somebody.... ANYbody.... to bomb before election day? Probably before the next debate. He is desperate. I heard someone on FoxNews this a.m. saying that when we had a strike against us in Libya during the Reagan administration that within 10 days, Reagan ordered the bombing of Gaddafi's compound.... and Reagan never heard a peep from Gaddafi after that. What a man!! What a president!
#1 - low-hanging fruit, perhaps, but still hilarious.
#3 - well, The Won is fresh out of grandmothers to die the week before the election, so he's got to find something to stimulate a repeat of the sympathy bump he got in his 2008 returns. (And anticipating reactions to this comment -- no, I don't think it's possible to be too cynical about that cat or his posse.)
The muslim student, from bangladesh, was enrolled at Soutwest Missouri State, taking courses in cybersecurity. It is time to stop the insanity of letting filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs enroll in our schools.
Why would islamists want to take out Obama since he is on their side? Martyr effect. Obama is going to lose the election, if he is murdered he will be revered in this country and around the world and his causes would be carried out and expanded just like after JFK.
I believe that the news reports stated he was a follower of an Islamic Radical group that the President has stated was "decimated", but how can that be ?? Obama is never wrong. When Obama had OBL killed, he created a martyr, but of course, he never looked that far ahead to see just what the unintended consequences of his action would be. Now these people just have an additional reason to blame the USA for their hatred.
I don't believe the story that Obama was also a target for a minute.
Someone with a lot of money and an interest in manipulating US politics made...and probably financed...the plan to strike the Federal Reserve Bank. Had it succeeded, the damage to the US economy would have been significant. It could have been a game-changer, motivating voters to not switch Presidents.
It would seem to me to be totally illogical that Obama was also a target...
An illegal immigrant from Albania with three American-born children who was to be deported Tuesday has been granted a reprieve, gaining at least one more year in America. [Snip] Precetaj received a call from authorities Friday afternoon telling her to report to the immigration office in Detroit for the removal of her tether. While there, she was given a letter which informed her that her stay of removal request had been granted for one year. ´Now I can [chaperone] my son’s field trip to Ohio,´ Precetaj told the Detroit Free Press. The Free Press notes that when Precetaj´s one year
Chuck Hagel, the US Defence Secretary, today sought to reassure Gulf states concerned about the recent nuclear deal with Iran by providing an unprecedented breakdown of America’s military presence in the region. Several leading pro-Western Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, have expressed displeasure about the recent interim agreement reached with Iran in Geneva over its nuclear programme, fearing that it could result in the U.S. abandoning its long-established ties with Gulf states in return for better relations with Tehran. But speaking at the annual Manama Dialogue international security conference in Bahrain, Mr Hagel went out of his way
Three members of a so-called ´Muslim Patrol´ were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London. Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a ´Muslim area´. The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face ´hell fire´ because of the way she was dressed. Horner, 19, Ricardo MacFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons were sentenced to 68 weeks, 12
A primary school has banned Enid Blyton children´s stories so it could win a race equality award. The Famous Five classics were dumped because they had ´inappropriate ethnic stereotypes´ with references to gypsies, golliwogs and a dog with a name starting with ´N´. [Snip] Two of the offending stories were Blyton´s Five Go To Mystery Moor and The Children of Kidillin. The much-loved author wrote more than 600 books before her death in 1968. In the 1990s some of her stories were edited to remove parts that were considered racist, sexist or anti-Semitic. Deputy head Phil Clarke said many of
Dozens of people have died in northern Kenya in a week of fierce clashes between rival ethnic groups, aid sources and reports said. The ongoing unrest, centred around the town of Moyale in Marsabit county on the frontier with Ethiopia, has seen villages burned down and many families forced to flee over the border. According to the Standard newspaper, at least 27 people have been killed and thousands more displaced over the past week. Kenyan peace and anti-tribalism campaigner Jaffer Isaak said he believed the toll was somewhere between 70 and 120 dead, while an independent international aid source, who asked not to
Despite ongoing anger about how the U.S. government is snooping on people around the world, one agency is still keen to boast about its spying - with a creepy cartoon octopus and an alarming logo. A top-secret rocket carrying spy satellites for the National Reconnaissance Office launched from the central California coast late on Thursday, and it had a large badge emblazoned on the side The new logo features a huge and sinister octopus, with just one angry eye visible, as it wraps its tentacles round the globe. Written underneath is: ´Nothing Is Beyond Our Reach.´
China is putting the squeeze on the New York Times and Bloomberg News, and it could have severe consequences for press freedom. The nation has blocked internet access to the two organisations´ websites, denied access to key events, such as the recent meeting between British Prime Minister David Cameron and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, and delayed visa renewal for more than two dozen reporters. [Snip] "Innovation thrives where people breathe freely, speak freely, are able to challenge orthodoxy, where newspapers can report the truth without fear of consequences,´´ Biden said at a meeting with business leaders earlier that day, as
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
