Guilty plea expected in alleged Fed bomb plot

A 21-year-old Bangladeshi man accused of planning to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with what he allegedly believed was a 1,000-pound bomb is expected to plead guilty Thursday, federal prosecutors said.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis was charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to provide material support to al Qaeda.

He was arrested during a sting operation October 17 and is expected to make his plea during a noon court appearance in New York, according to a statement from the Justice Department.

    sure another ;'sting' operation.
    Befriend a gullible youth, feed nonsense to him make him say things that are construed to be what a court would go along with. Provide him with a fake bomb and take him to his 'intended' target.
    There you are.

      To do the opposite and let him go around to the right(wrong) people and have him actually get his hands on the good stuff and blow stuff up. What the FBI did was be vigilant and proactive on the hunt for terrorists. Saywhat would you say those silly things if he targeted your home and blew it up? Nope you would be dead so put a sock in it and be thankful

    USA should imagine how the Indians have and are suffering the Jehadi elements, it is good that USA has no appeasing policy, it is clear the devil has to be taken upon, with no second agenda, we wish India also has such an approach
