It will be interesting to see who turns up in this investigation. Hopefully, the case will shed more ligh on the dangers of our current border policy.
NEW YORK (June 9)- The investigation into the thwarted plot to bomb
Kennedy International Airport is widening beyond the four men in
custody, with more suspects sought outside the U.S. for their
suspected roles, a law enforcement official said Friday.
The defendants identified last weekend were “just a piece of
it,” the official told The Associated Press on the condition of
anonymity because of not being authorized to speak publicly. “We
are definitely seeking more players. We are targeting others
The official declined to provide details about the possible
suspects, or in what countries they are being sought.
Law enforcement officials, through the use of an informant, were
able to undermine the airport plot in its early stages.
The four suspects made trips to the airport, took video and
photographs, drew diagrams and collected information. They then
hoped to shop their information to individuals with the capacity to
pull off their stated plan of causing “greater destruction than
the Sept. 11 attacks,” the official said.
According to court documents, the men sought the help of Jamaat
al Muslimeen, or JAM, a group based in Trinidad that is known to be
violent and involved in killings, kidnappings and weapons
trafficking over the past two decades. The group staged a coup
attempt in 1990, storming the Trinidad Parliament building and
taking the prime minister hostage.
