ROPer arrested for attempting to blow up Federal Reserve Bank in NYC
A Bangladeshi terrorist tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan this morning using a 1,000-pound bomb, according to a criminal complaint.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, of Jamaica, Queens, parked a van filled with the fake explosives -- which were provided by an undercover FBI agent -- outside of the Liberty Street building, authorities said, then tried to set them off using a cell phone detonator.
This morning, after he and the agent loaded up the van with the fake explosives, which were placed in trash cans and covered with a tarp, before driving to the bank. He parked the van, then he went to the Millennium Hilton near the World Trade Center, where he called the cell phone in the van. It did not explode, and he was arrested by federal agents.
During a recorded meeting in Central Park with the agent, Nafis said his goal was Muslim global domination."I don't want something that's like small. I just want something big," he said. "Something very big. Very very very very big, that will shake the whole country, that will make America, not one step ahead, change of policy, and make one step ahead, for the Muslims ... that will make us one step closer to run the whole world."
Nafis, who is here on a student visa, came to the US to carry out a terror attack, authorities said, and claimed to have connections to al-Qaeda overseas.
What do we have for him, Johnny?
Well, Bob, Quazi wins an all expense paid lifetime trip to... PMITA Federal Prison!
