Federal Reserve terrorist plot thwarted by the F.B.I.

BY ALINE REYNOLDS |

The Financial District’s Federal Reserve Bank was the target of a potentially deadly terrorist attempt in mid-October.

On the morning of Wed., Oct. 17, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, a 21-year-old from Bangladesh, tried to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000-pound bomb in front of the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street. But members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force were fully aware of his intentions and had rendered the bomb harmless. They had closely been surveilling Nafis since early July, feigning complicity as al Qaeda operatives.

Nafis, who was arraigned in a U.S. District Court in Brooklyn later that day, now faces life in prison for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al Qaeda.

An undercover F.B.I. agent posing as an al Qaeda member and facilitator met with Nafis several times over the last few months as he plotted a massive vehicle-borne attack blocks away from the World Trade Center. Ultimately, the would-be terrorist settled on the Federal Reserve as his target rather than the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street.

At one point, Nafis told the F.B.I. agent that he wanted to “blow up the whole New York Stock Exchange building,” adding that he needed to make sure that “this building is gone,” according to the court papers. He ended up choosing to target the Federal Reserve, the site of several hundred office workers, because of its sizeable influence on the American economy.

In an unpublished article he intended to submit to “Inspire,” an English-language publication magazine issued by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Nafis wrote, “All I had in my mind [is] 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.”

The undercover agent discouraged him from returning to Bangladesh to see his family one last time before attempting a suicide bombing — assuring him that he could visit home after carrying out a terrorist attack if he remotely bombed the building of his choice.

The morning of Oct. 17, the undercover agent joined Nafis in a trip by van from a New York warehouse (whose location officials haven’t identified) to Liberty Street. The duo then walked to a nearby hotel, where they checked into a room and recorded a video explaining Nafis’s motives for the imminent attack.

Moments later, Nafis attempted to detonate the fake bomb several times, using his cell phone to activate the explosives he thought were inside the parked vehicle. Agents quickly raided the van to collect the evidence of his terrorist attempt and proceeded to place him in handcuffs.

Nafis’s plan is one of approximately 15 terrorist plots the city has seen since Sept. 11, 2001, according to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. The Federal Reserve, he said, has been added to a list of iconic terrorist targets that include the N.Y.S.E., the Brooklyn Bridge and the Citicorp Center in Midtown East.

A thousand New York Police Department officers are assigned to counterterrorism duties on a daily basis, Kelly noted in a written statement. “Whether al Qaeda operatives like Lyman Faris or those inspired by them like Jose Pimentel, terrorists have tried time and again to make New York City their killing field,” he said. “After 11 years without a successful attack, it’s understandable if the public becomes complacent. But that’s a luxury law enforcement can’t afford.”

Kelly continued, “Vigilance is our watchword now and into the foreseeable future.”

Community Board 1 chair Catherine McVay Hughes, who lives a block away from the Federal Reserve, said the most recent terrorist attempt doesn’t make her worried about safety. “It shows that the N.Y.P.D. is on top of what’s happening Downtown,” she said. “The N.Y.P.D. is good at determining its needs, and C.B. 1 has always been supportive to make sure that they get the resources they need.”

  1. Religion is nothing more then ctronol and manipulation, They use fear ( you have sin, you are going to hell ) and dogmatic information ( to keep you closed minded and ignorant) to make people subservient to the desires of that organization.salvation is also a tool use to manipulate people into doing things for the church.you don’t need to do any of that crap.You need to be yourself and become open minded and less judgmental about thing you don’t have a good understanding about.This is why we have so much wars and unnecessary killing over stupid things like no my religion is right yours is wrong We are all eternal spiritual beings , the problem is that if your mind is trapped to the teachings of what this world force feed you then become locked on this planet.That why when people believe in reincarnation ( which is basically enslavement of the soul ) and believe in karma ( a excuse to keep you pointlessly reincarnating into earth over and over again , karma is nothing but a debt system that can never be solved) , The very things they believe will happen to them when they die.When the brain floods the body with DMT ( do research on it ) which is responsible for dreams and is released at the point of death and birth ( they did studies on it), whatever state of mind you have before and after death affects your spirit . iThis is something they will not tell you because they are trying to keep you subservient and keep you locked on this realm.There are so much out there to experiences and do , SO many astral planes, so many dimensions to go to , You can create anything you want and do anything you want . ( that is what imagination is for, when you are in the spirit world , whatever you think will be created however you want and how you want to experiences it ).DID you ever look up in the stars and said wow there is so much out there , yet here your parents and society forcing you to believe is crap that only brain washes and limit what you can potentially do as a spirit when you leave this world.None of these Religions teach anybody about Open mindedness, because being open minded allows people to understand each other better and to eliminate conflict that never do anything but get people killedNone of these religions teaches that being very judgmental about things you don’t understand creates conflict and no peace,None of the Religions teaches that being yourselves is the only things that matter, because you are a unique individual and as a unique person you may be able to do things others can’t.Instead they perpetuate things from keeping you from being yourself, telling you its better to be like everybody else in the norm instead of being your self which is what you are .NOne of the religions Teaches freedom , for freedom is something everybody desire and wants, Its a right and freedom isn’t something you have to earn because you became a slave to some system or religion and when you did everything those sickening bastards told you to do , all they say is now you are save, now you have your salvation . WTF.Open your mind, There is more going on in this world then you think.Being yourself is very important, its who you are, don’t allow any body ( good or evil) influence you to be something you know your not, or to conrtrol you and manipulate you to doing things that keep you from understand yourself. Salvation is a tool used by many religions to enslave you . Reincarnation and karma does the same thing.There is so much out there to do , Why should any of you be limited to teaching and sickening ways based on how they evil forces created life on this planet? Everybody knows that there is something about themselves that is unique , This uniqueness as well as your individual nature was something that was away with you , yet here people try so hard to do anything to ctronol . They want you to appeal to there desires and not yours.DO research on DMT, astral plain, fluoride , NWO , .
