4 men were arrested and a terror plot was thwarted in New York City late yesterday. Due to the vigilance of federal and local authorities, a terror plot was defeated.
Authorities said the four men have long been under investigation and there was little danger they could actually have carried out their plan, NBC News’ Pete Williams reported.
James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen, all of Newburgh, N.Y., about 70 miles north of New York City, were charged with conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and conspiracy to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles, the U.S. attorney’s office said. (NBC News)
According to reports, the four terrorists weren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer. They allied themselves with an undercover FBI agent who sold them fake C-4 explosives and a dummy surface-to-air missle.
Their idiocy notwithstanding…
We’re still under threat of terrorism here in the United States. Every day groups of haters are plotting to destroy us. This isn’t a law enforcement issue. It’s an issue of our national security.
Thank God some people are still reacting to threats like it is September 12th.
